But 48 hours after her father’s death, she finds herself face to face with Victor, a roguish vampire who wants to kill her. Her magical powers ignite, freeing her from his clutches.

Finding her courage within, Starla goes into battle, swooping down on a dragon’s back, killing the enemy with her wand, and leaving the Protectors on the ground marveling at the sight. Pride and strength surge from within her, breaking the bonds of weakness that have kept Starla hidden from her true identity: the first female Protector.Protector’s Awakening is book one in The Protectors series, a vampire fantasy epic about finding true love, crusading against evil, and creating family.
