Title: Tall, Dark & Dead (Garnet Lacey, Book 1)
Author: Tate Hallaway
Tags: paranormal, thriller, vampires, witches, lilith
First in the Garnet Lacey series. Garnet is a witch. One night when she was late, the rest of her coven was slaughtered by Vatican witch hunters. She found them, called the Goddess Lilith into herself, and Lilith kills the witch hunters. Now she lives in a new town with a new name and life. She meets a very attractive man who, sadly, is dead. He's a vampire, but has powers such that he can be active in daylight due to a formula he created. Now everyone is after his formula, including Lilith. Garnet and Sebastian are strongly drawn together.
I read this after reading a short story by the same author. It is a good start to a series. Worth a read.
