Alex Stone wants to pretend the supernatural doesn't exist. As the owner of a hot new clothing line, the only thing she's killing is her competition - until she gets a phone call from her past.

As the Dagger, she was a member of the covert ops team tasked with hunting threats of the supernatural kind. For the super soldiers of Night Command, the rules were simple: take the pills, fight the bad guys, and live to tell no one. After putting a bad-ass vampire on ice landed her in a padded cell, Alex thought she'd left the hunting game for good. Now she's in the orbit of a handsome vampire with a problem. And sometimes keeping secrets bites.

Jason Stavros has the best of everything and life eternal. To the human world, Jason was just a poor boy who made it to the top. For a human turned vampire, the fight for a place in the inner circle of the ruling class hinges on one task: convince the best ex-vampire hunting assassin to become his personal bodyguard and save them all.

Join Alex, Jason and a new team of young hunters as two worlds unite against a common enemy. As the body count begins to rise, Alex and the Tracker Team fight friends and enemies to find the answers they seek.

What's been happening in the dark will finally come to light.


From prologue:

She enjoyed seeing those chains of pure silver wrapped around the vampire’s scrawny arms like tattoos. He barely resembled the picture of the old parish priest the Cardinal sent them two weeks ago. His brown skin hung from his bones like an ill-fitting suit. His paunch bounced up and down as he struggled to get loose. It took longer to catch him, much longer than it should have, but all’s well that ends well.
Alex Stone, call-sign Dagger, ran her fingers through her dark hair. Flakes of dried blood and sand fell as she pulled the dirty mess into a ponytail. Benjamin Palmer, Team Commander, snatched her wounded hand back down and tightened the field dressing as he griped at her about how dumb it was to try to catch the sharp end of a knife with her hand. She knew that . . . now.
“Who do you think you are,” he said as he gave the knot one last yank, “Superman?” Ben checked her busted lip with a shake of his head. “That’s gonna hurt like hell till morning.”
Alex just nodded, taking the pills in her good hand and swallowing them with a quick sip of warm water from his canteen.
Under normal circumstances, Alex would be pulled from the field, evaluated and possibly scrubbed from the next assignment for that stunt. But time was running out and this wasn’t normal, not even for the top vampire hunting team in the country.


On Taking Rejection from Readers by Janice Jones:
I've learned that you can't take everyone's opinions on your writing personally. When I read any review, I look for the bad ones first. I look for something positive to take away from it, then I use  it. People usually have no problem saying exactly what they want to read and why you didn't meet their expectations with your work. I ignore the references to other author's work though. I'm not Stephanie Meyers or Laurell Hamilton and I have no intention of trying to be. I have my own voice and I know how to use it. I don't want to imitate anyone else's style. If I did that, nothing I created would be my own. If I fail, I fail because I'm not a good writer, period; Not because I'm bad at trying to be someone else. As a writer, I have to keep telling myself that not everyone is going to like my stories and that's okay. There are people that do and I should really be thankful that they get it. I'm not trying to change the world. I created this series as an escape from the everyday hustle that all of us are living. I enjoy writing and getting to know these characters ad I hope that other people enjoy them too. The best thing any writer can do is to listen to your own voice. There may not be any new ideas out there, but there are new writers and they deserve a chance to shine.
