Vixen: New Cover, New Blurb

What has glowing eyes and fangs, but isn't a vampire?

She doesn't know, either.

A year ago, Su woke up on a park bench with no memories, but it didn't take her long to figure out she isn't exactly human. The problem is, she doesn't know what she is, and neither does anyone else.

Now, cut off from her past, she gets by as a pickpocket, keeps to herself, and tries to stay as far away as possible from the vampires who find her scent irresistible.

Until Evgeny stumbles into her life, awkward and newly-born as a vamp, with as few memories as Su. The other vamps are even more interested in him than they are in her, so together Su and Ev take a stand to save both their lives.

And they uncover a plot that endangers all others -- vamp, were, witch, and whatever Su is.


For comparison, here are the current cover and blurbs (the first is the original, the second is the back cover text from the paperback edition).

Su just wants to sit in a dark corner for a quiet drink when she spots a newborn vampire across the bar. He's confused, and he's starting to draw attention to himself. And he's hot.

So Su decides to give him a few pointers. Then she realizes that the reason this baby vamp is wandering around without a protective escort is that she killed his parent vamp earlier that night.

Now Su feels responsible. A newborn vampire is helpless until he regains his memories and learns how to act like a vampire. Su knows enough about vamps to be able to teach him that. But Su has her own problems. She doesn't have much of a memory, either, and while she's not a vampire, she's not exactly human.

Su doesn't know what she is, and she doesn't have a kindly stranger in a bar to tell her.


Su knows it's a bad idea to take home strangers you meet in the bar. It's an even worse idea when the young man is a newly-made vampire. Except it's her fault he's alone and unprotected.

But Evgeny isn't an ordinary vampire. He's something other vamps very much want to get their hands--or their fangs--on. When he's kidnapped, Su can't just let him go. Because she's not about to let her new friend be cannibalized by his own people. And besides, Su isn't an ordinary woman.

 The trouble is, she doesn't actually know what she is.


If anyone has any suggestions for improvement, I'd love to hear them.
