Must Read Author – Erin Hayes
Damned if I Do (The Harker Trilogy, Book 1)
I’ve spent the last five months trying to find the bastard who took my sister’s life and ruined mine.
Being brought up in a family that hunted the supernatural should have helped, but even with a slim chance that I can save us all, there’s still the bigger chance I'll die trying.
Unfortunately, there’s one important thing my family didn’t tell me: When you fight against immortal vampires, you’re the one who’s running out of time.
Damned if I Don't (The Harker Trilogy, Book 2)
I may be a vampire hunter.
But I've single-handedly screwed up big time.
After botching our chance to cure vampirism and the infection that's killing me, I'm at a loss. My cousin Carl won't speak to me. The bastard who killed my sister is still alive. And Jude, the amnesiac vampire, says he's in love with me.
What's even more shocking is that I love him back.
But the more Jude learns about his past, the more it will tear our relationship and our lives apart. I'm running out of time to find a new successor to become the new Progenitor. Because when I die, it's game over for all of us.
Damned Either Way (The Harker Trilogy, Book 3)
The thrilling conclusion to The Harker Trilogy
I'm finally free of my family's curse.
Except now, the world is ending. FML.
Anthony, the vampire that killed my sister and my brother-in-law, has won. I've lost everything. I no longer have my powers. I have no idea where Amelia is. And the vampire I love has surrendered to the hunger that is throwing the world into chaos.
The worst part? I can't do anything about it, because I'm no longer the Harker. Sure, I'm not dying anymore, but I'm barely living at this point.
But there may be one last chance to save us all. If only I can find it in me to make one final sacrifice.
Shades of the Gods (The Elysium Legacies, Book One)
Caught between life and death, all Callie wants is to live again.
Homicide detective Callie Saunders knows that death isn’t all pearly gates and angels. After being hit by a bus, she finds that it's the ancient gods and goddesses of Greek mythology who are in charge of everything.
So when Hades offers her a deal, she accepts. If she wants to be brought back to life, she’ll have to figure out who is trying to kill his son. But if she fails, both her soul and the world will be destroyed.
With the odds mounting against her, it’ll take everything she has within her to wake up from death. But the rules are constantly changing. And someone wants her to stay dead.

But there’s always been someone missing from this little piece of paradise.
When a vengeful god kidnaps her son, she travels back to a world she barely understands to find him. A world where she must face humanity’s greatest enemies and her former lover. If she’s not careful, she’ll lose her soul again. And maybe even her heart.
