Watchers in the Night
"Watchers in the Night" is the tale of Carolyn Mathers, a former homicide detective-turned-private investigator. For the past few months, she's been suffering from a bad case of paranoia every time she goes out at night - she feels like she's being watched. Finally, when she gets up the nerve to go out on her first date since her fiance Gray left her at the altar, she gets attacked by a mugger - and her exfiance steps out of the shadows to help her fight the mugger off. Afterwards, Gray melts back into the shadows, but Carolyn isn't letting him go again. She puts her skills to use, and investigates - and discovers a world she never imagined. A world of vampires and vampire hunters, of murderers and guardians, of living at night and sleeping during the day. The world Gray now inhabits. But when Carolyn said she wasn't letting Gray go again, she meant it - and now she'll do anything to keep him in her life...but will she take the final step and join him in immortality?

About Jenna Black
Author Jenna Black writes paranormal romance books and young adult novels, including "Shadowspell" and "Watchers in the Night," which was nominated for the 2006 Paranormal Excellence in Romantic Literature (PEARL) award. She's your typical writer: an experience junkie. Once upon a time, she dreamed she would be the next Jane Goodall, camping in the bush and making fabulous discoveries about primate behavior. She went to Duke University to study physical anthropology. Then, during her senior year, she made a shocking discovery: primates spend something like 80% of their time doing such exciting things as sleeping and eating. Narrowly escaping the boring life of a primatologist, she moved on to such varied pastimes as grooming dogs and writing technical documentation. Among her other experiences: ballroom dancing, traveling to all seven continents--yes, even Antarctica--becoming a Life Master in Bridge, and singing in a barbershop chorus.
