Black Sunshine by Karina Halle is now live!
All Lenore Warwick wants for her 21st birthday is to hang out with her friends, finish her second year at Berkley with flying colors, and maybe catch the eye of a hot musician playing a show at a club that she can now (legally) get into.
Unfortunately, fate has other plans for her.
A week before her birthday, she’s kidnapped by the brooding and dangerous stranger with cold eyes and a lethal touch, who has been stalking her on San Francisco’s fog-shrouded streets. Absolon Stavig isn’t your average criminal though. He’s a centuries-old vampire who’s caught between wanting to kill Lenore and wanting to save her.
You see Lenore, too, is a vampire.
She just doesn’t know it yet.
Taken by a pair of vampire slayers when she was just an infant, Lenore was raised never knowing her true nature. All Lenore knows is that she has seemingly normal parents who love her, that she’s exceptionally smart, and she’s squeamish around blood. But once she turns twenty-one, she’ll fully turn into a vampire, and Solon hopes he’ll be there to guide her, opening her eyes to her deepest hunger…both sexual and otherwise.
But this turning can’t be kept a secret. Soon both slayers and vampires are hunting Lenore, with only Solon and his unpredictable motley crew of vampires to save her.
If they don’t kill her first.
Black Sunshine is a dark adult standalone romance with a paranormal twist, about sex, love, secrets, and revenge, set in contemporary San Francisco.

I haven’t dove into a vampire story in quite a while but when Karina Halle writes paranormal…you need to grab onto it and immerse yourself into the Black Sunshine. Solon was perfection as the broody, alpha vampire who doesn’t know exactly what he wants do with Lenore. His twisted view of right and wrong, his coldness in dealing with Lenore, his attractiveness to all creatures around him…he was an addictive mystery man who I wanted to slowly unwrap. Lenore always felt like an outsider and I loved how brave and caring she was…she clings to her humanity. Lots of twists and turns that keep you glued to the pages as Lenore starts down the road of discovery of who or what she really is. I’m excited about this new world and these characters and can’t wait to fall deeper in love with this small family of vampires.
