Beneath a Blood Red Moon by Shannon Drake

Maggie Montgomery is implicated in a murder in New Orleans. Sean Canady is the detective in charge of the case. Maggie is a vampire, but does not tell Sean at first. Through flashbacks Maggie's life as Magdalena, Megan, Meg and M. Montgomery is revealed. Her nemesis is Aaron Carter, he has been after Maggie for as long as she can remember. He wants her for his own and she spurned him. Now prostitutes and a pimp have been viciously murdered and blood drop led to the door of Maggie's business. She has to make Sean believe what she is so together they can stop the monster that Aaron has become.

This is the first book I have read by Shannon Drake. Once I started it, I could not put it down for long. I had to keep reading to find out what was going to happen. Very good chemistry between Maggie and Sean. Also liked the minor characters of her employees, Sean's father, and his partner Jack. A pretty fast and easy read all the way around. If you are a fan of vampire novels this is a good one.
