Vampires and fae compete for my favorite supernatural. Obviously, I had to combine them!
I’ve always been fascinated with mythology. My favorite series are the ones that blend myth with a new mythos (Kate Daniels by Ilona Andrews for instance). I knew I wanted to blend my own version of fae with real Celtic mythological creatures, like the banshee and kelpie.
When I set out to create the races for my characters, blood fae came first. Since Bad Girls Drinks Blood brings different realms in the universe together, it just made sense that the predominant fae races be related to the universe – sun fae / moon fae. Fairies are related to the world – snow, water, etc.
It’s not *that* simple. I have backstories/origin stories for my races, but that’s the gist of it!

Part sun fae, part blood fae, all abomination.
After a life spent dodging slurs, threats, and assassination attempts, Lane gave her past the one finger salute and ditched her former fae home for good. The detective agency she and her sisters run on the edge of Las Vegas continues to limp along, with Lane doing more debt collecting and intimidating than investigating, but anything to pay the bills. Between working for low-lifes to bring down even lower-lifes, eating cheesy poofs by the bucket, and flirting with the criminally attractive bartender where she conducts business, life is good.
That ends when a routine job goes sideways, leaving Lane with a sack full of stolen sun shards—the source of sun fae power. Without the shards, the sun fae face giving up their magic completely, or risk death if they use their power. Considering they would rather see her dead, good riddance, as far as Lane’s concerned—except her father and adopted sister are sun fae. Lane must choose—return home to save the fae bastards that almost killed her, or let them burn.
