Another great recommendation by Louisa!
As per the author’s website:
When 28-year-old Emma Donahoe becomes a nanny to John Chen’s daughter, Simone, she does not expect to be drawn into a world of martial arts, magic, and extreme danger, where both gods and demons can exist in the mortal world.
Emma gradually realises that John Chen is no ordinary businessman and that nearly all the demons in hell would like to see him dead. John and his American bodyguard, Leo, begin to teach Emma their particular brand of martial arts and special defensive techniques … they also begin to realise that there is something that is different about Emma but exactly what it is, nobody can say.
“Thank you for all your reviews and I would like to recommend one of my own. It’s the Shifters series by Rachel Vincent. Though they are not vampires, but instead werecats, I was, and still am fully addicted to this series. And then proceeded to get my manager at work fully obsessed with them as well. They are engaging and exciting with plenty of humor, and at one point made me cry, which in a book is not an easy feat.”
An excerpt from the author’s website:
MUCH LOVED SERIES ALERT!! And it seems this series just keeps getting better with every new release!!
Jamie: You should really read Patricia Briggs Mercy Thompson series. It has shapeshifter, vamps, etc. I anxiously await each new book.
Niki: Patrica Briggs Mercy Thompson series its worth the read. Mercy is a great heroine with some real hotties in there to boot!!!!
Jan: Best new-to-me book I read in June was the most recent Mercy Thompson PNR/Urban fantasy book, Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs. One of the best in that series so far. I just caught up on that series, even though Silence Fallen has been around since March 2017. WTG, Jan. LOL.
About the series:
For centuries Mira has been a nightwalker—an unstoppable enforcer for a mysterious organization that manipulates earth-shaking events from the darkest shadows. But elemental mastery over fire sets her apart from others of her night-prowling breed . . . and may be all that prevents her doom.
The foe she now faces is human: the vampire hunter called Danaus, who has already destroyed so many undead. For Mira, the time has come to hunt . . . or be hunted.
