Wind and Shadow (Talbot Trilogy #1) by Tori L. Ridgewood
Rayvin Woods, photographer and natural witch. She just wanted to start her life over again after a series of misadventures. She didn't count on rekindling a lost love when she came home to Talbot...or battling a malevolent vampire and his coven for her life.
Grant Michaels, police officer. He thought Rayvin was a murderer. He will do whatever it takes to protect the community he loves from danger...but will he learn to trust his heart, and the word of a witch, before it's too late?
Malcolm de Sade, cunning vampire, imprisoned underground for a year by Charlotte Fanning and Pike Mahonen ("Mist and Midnight", Midnight Thirsts). His accidental release unleashes his hunger and ambition on a small, sleepy town…
Facing the past can be a nightmare. It's worse when a vampire is stalking you.
Rayvin returns to her hometown ten years after being driven away only to discover that a vampire is on the loose. As a witch she has no choice but to try to stop it. Of course the first person she meets when she comes back to town is her high school crush, Grant, who thinks she tried to murder his best friend. I liked Ravyn and Grant. There is romance and magic and vampires. This is the first of a trilogy and nothing is resolved. It takes a dark turn at the end and I'm not sure I can handle it. I know I will check out the next book anyway.
