San Francisco nightclub owner Carina Tranquilli works hard, plays hard, and never allows the death of her parents and her twelve-year memory gap to get her down. But her life takes a left turn when a witch attacks her on her twenty-fifth birthday.

Three hauntingly familiar vampires emerge to reveal she possesses a latent power. To protect her from their enemies, they admit to wiping her memories clean and abandoning her as a child, but now they need her help. As she struggles to evade her new protectors and even newer enemies, she meets Alexander, an enigmatic, undead musician. Insta-lust flares, leaving her wanting more.

With evil’s minions hounding her every move, and everything she thought she knew turned on its head, Carina must harness her burgeoning power, unravel her vampire family’s web of deceit, and fight to have a love life…without getting killed in the process.

Haven is a standalone paranormal/fantasy novel.
Carina is a twenty five year old club owner who has a twelve year memory gap. On her birthday three powerful vampires come calling from her past. She discovers there is more to her and her past then she’s ever known. Thrown into a new world she must learn how to navigate the deadly waters of the vampire world. The only one of her kind, she is part of a prophecy that foretells of darkness coming. Carina must discover her power and also come to terms with her role in the vampire world including a super hot young vampire named Alexander, who is her soul mate.
It was an interesting beginning. Right away you were thrown into the story. The premise was good, I love paranormal novels so I was excited about this. Vampires and witches occupied the novel along with seers and warriors. Sadly I was disappointed. I really wanted to love this story but I only liked it. There was a lot of lost potential. The main character was immature and naive, she had her moments where she was strong and sassy but not enough to counteract her child-likeness. Her “family” was always trying to baby her and protect her instead of telling her what she need to know and how to protect herself. I wanted to see more of Alexander and I wanted to see their relationship develop. Alexander was a sexy vampire who I was eager to see more of but didn’t really see much of him. I was hoping he would be more badass then he was. The ending left way to a potential second book that I hope the author pursues but has the characters grow up.
I recommend this for fans of vampires and paranormal novels. There was some romance in there but not enough to really call it paranormal romance. It might even be considered YA.
I rate this book 3.5 fangs.http://www.amazon.com/review/R37ACXL049PTGB/ref=cm_cr_rdp_perm?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B00DQH3SZI
