It’s not bad enough that Naomi Witherspoon is second-guessing her relationship with her new boyfriend, Ute shapeshifter Joseph Curtis. Now she’s been attacked by a jaguar in downtown Denver. And somebody has built a hydraulic fracturing operation down the road from their friend Charlie’s ranch. An independent filmmaker named Jack Rivers has conveniently appeared, and is documenting Charlie’s problems with the fracking operation. Naomi thinks Jack might be the Investigator – the fourth member of the team a Lakota Indian goddess set up to help Naomi broker peace between Jehovah and the pagan pantheons – but Jack seems more interested in causing trouble among Naomi, Joseph, and her best friend Shannon, than in helping out their team.
When the operator of the fracking facility turns out to be an old acquaintance, Naomi begins to wonder how many Tricksters it takes to make a divine deal….
Naomi Witherspoon must mediate a power-sharing agreement between Jehovah and the pagan gods. But she’s surrounded by Tricksters: her new boyfriend Joseph; the operator of a fracking facility near their friend’s ranch; and maybe even the filmmaker she’s just met. What could possibly go wrong?
Antonella Ambrosetti may be a vampire, but she refuses to be a monster. The members of her exclusive house of vampires, the House of the Red Veil, all live by her strict rules. But, when tragedy strikes and the prime suspect is her former companion, Dante, all her rules go out the window in her quest to keep her house safe.
Along the way, she struggles with her growing attraction to Seth, the warlock that makes her cold, dead heart race, and the desire of Nicky Marchesi, son of a prominent mob boss, to become a vampire against his father’s wishes.
House of the Red Veil, the urban vampire fantasy by Amy Fane, is available from Amazon.com.

Naomi’s having a bad week. She’s already overwhelmed by setting up her solo mediation practice and second-guessing her relationship with Joseph. An old acquaintance seems to be setting up shop down the road from their friend Charlie’s ranch. And Charlie has a new pal: a filmmaker who might be the Investigator – except that he doesn’t exactly believe in teamwork.
