Hey people! Rayne McDonald here! Vampire and vampire slayer extraordinaire. And if that isn’t enough, I’m also a full blooded fairy princess. All of which makes me extremely kick ass. I’ve got the powers of the vampire, the powers of a fairy, and yes, I’m an expert at slaying my own kind. (Only the bad ones who don’t follow the rules, mind you. Not the upstanding citizens of the Blood Coven.)
I’ve had a lot of experience in my short time in the supernatural world. From slaying the evil vampire Maverick who devised a blood virus to get revenge on the Blood Coven to taking on a squad of rampaging cheerleader werewolves out to destroy my hometown I even went up against the legendary fairy Tinkerbell, though I’m sad to say I actually lost that one. (Trust me, she’s a lot tougher than she looks in her sparkly dress.) And coming up in my next book, Soul Bound, I’m actually heading to Hades to take on the creatures of the Underworld–including the devil himself. Say what you want about me, but I’m nothing if not ambitious.
My weapon of choice is the stake. It’s my own special stake, infused with my essence. So for those of you thinking it’s lame to go around brandishing a stick of wood, think again. This stake has the power to dust even the toughest vampire in a single bound. And if you’re human? Well, just watch out for some major splinters. (Just kidding, I have other weapons reserved, just for you!)
And lest you think it’s me against the world, think again. I’ve got my twin sister Sunny, always by my side. She may not be a vampire or a slayer, but she’s a pretty amazing fairy princess with the power to polymorph into anything she wants. So you never know where she’ll show up or what she’ll look like when she does. Not to mention she can fly! How cool is that?
I’ve also got my boyfriend to back me up. Jareth is general of the Blood Coven and a pretty bad ass vampire in his own right. And if you’re a slayer–well, watch out. He really hates you. Not that you can blame him. Slayer Inc. took out his whole family once upon a time. Not something you can really forgive. Luckily for me, he makes an exception. But only because I’m full of awesome.
Not that I really need backup, by the way. I’m more than ready to take on any supernatural creature by my lonesome. And I can meet you anywhere in the world. So far my adventures have taken me to England, Japan, Switzerland, Vegas, New York, Hades–just to name a few. In other words, have stake, will travel.
Oh and just FYI? I’m pretty awesome at virtual slaying as well. From World of Warcraft to my new favorite: Vampires vs. Zombies–I’m all you need to get through any level or take down any boss. Just ask!
So if you need someone in your corner for a supernatural smackdown, look no further. After all, why settle for just a vampire or a slayer or a fairy — when you can have a three-for-one? Just ask for Rayne McDonald and you won’t be sorry.

Boys That Bite
When Sunny McDonald’s sister drags her to Club Fang, all she expects is a bunch of Goth kids playing at being vampires. But when a tall, handsome stranger mistakes Sunny for her dark-side-loving twin and bites her on the neck, she realizes his fangs are real-and deadly…
Rayne McDonald had it all figured out: become the vampire mate of the Blood Coven master and live the high life for all eternity. But now, not only is Rayne fangless, but she discovers she’s destined to be a vampire slayer instead…and sexy vampire bad boy Jareth keeps getting in her way.
