“Regan Summers’ writing is taut, electric and crackles with tension.” – Kristin, My Bookish Ways
(Night Runner, Book 2.0)
Sydney Kildare’s done working for vampires. Her years of couriering – and dodging hijackers and sucker mind games – are over. It’s time for her and Malcolm Kelly, her secret vampire lover, to ride off into the sunset.
At least, that was the plan.
But Master vampire Bronson has reared his domineering head again, and he isn’t above blackmailing his former runner to get what he wants. He needs her to infiltrate a human pharmaceutical company. Syd’s not a trained spy, but if she can’t uncover what Bronson wants, he’ll take his disappointment out on Malcolm.
There are rules in the vampire world, rules that are starting to feel an awful lot like shackles. Mal is the brightest light in Sydney’s life, but runners don’t do well in captivity. Syd is the first honest person he’s encountered in decades, but this mission may corrupt her completely. Their love is strong, but can it survive a hopeless situation?
After surviving a vampire turf war in Alaska, vampire courier Sydney Kildare is back behind the wheel and working under an assumed name in Chile. She doesn’t speak the language, doesn’t know the city and—worst of all—has to drive a crappy car.
What she does have is Malcolm Kelly, her sort-of boyfriend and manager of the city’s vampire population. But with Malcolm preoccupied by bloodsucker business—and a gorgeous vampiress from his past—Sydney feels more alone than ever.
But Sydney has more than her love life to worry about. She’s got vamps on her tail, mysterious deliveries that leave death in their wake, and old enemies targeting her to get to Malcolm. Turns out he’s got a history more deadly than she ever imagined, and she’ll have to use every skill in her arsenal to stay alive…
Don’t Bite the Messenger (Night Runner, Book 0.5)
The vampire population may have created an economic boom in Alaska, but their altered energy field fries most technology. They rely on hard-living—and short-lived—couriers to get business done…couriers like Sydney Kildare. Sydney has survived to the ripe old age of twenty-six by being careful. She’s careful when navigating her tempestuous clients, outrunning hijackers and avoiding anyone who might distract her from her plan of retiring young to a tropical, vampire-free island.
Her attitude—and immunity to vampires’ allure—have made her the target of a faction of vampires trying to reclaim their territory. Her only ally is Malcolm Kelly, a secretive charmer with the uncanny habit of showing up whenever she’s in trouble. Caught in the middle of a vampire turf war, Sydney has to count on Malcolm to help her survive, or the only place she’ll retire is her grave…
