Fanged Princess (Fanged Princess, #1)Fanged Princess by Elisabeth Wheatley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fast and furious adventure, with a backdrop of family loyalty and an equal measure of family betrayal. Protecting those whom you care about, no matter the cost or risky consequence, is the underlying theme. The story is basically a "high-speed-chase" from state to state as the protagonists fight to outrun the punishment for breaking with what is considered the norm in the world of this colourful vampire suspense.
