>In a world where bloodthirsty vampires roam the night and street-corner psychics have real powers, bodyguard Celia Graves always thought she was an ordinary human - but that was never true. By ancestry, she's half-Siren; a vicious vampire attack has turned her into a creature who finds sunlight painful and must take all her food in liquid form - but who still possesses a human heart, mind, and soul. Her bodyguard business is booming: Who wouldn't want to be protected by a sexy woman who is half-vampire, half-Siren princess, and a crack shot?

Celia Graves's newest client is one of the last surviving members of a magical family that is trapped in a generations-old feud with other magic-workers. She is supposed to die at the next full moon unless Celia can broker peace between the clans or break the curse before it can take effect. For the first time in a long while, Celia's personal life is looking up. Her vampire abilities seem to be under control, her Siren abilities have gotten more reliable, and even though her office was blown up, her services are more in demand than ever now.
A client begs Celia Graves - part human, part Siren, part vampire - to help return a genie to his bottle. The attempt makes Celia a target for the currently incorporeal ifrit. If she doesn't give him her body, he'll kill everyone she loves. If she does, he'll use her physical form to free thousands of evil djinn. Celia's not going to hand over her body, but her client tries to trick her into it - so that he can kill the ifrit while it's trapped in her flesh. That doesn't end well for the client.
"story is good, audible narration not good"
In Celia Graves's world, vampires roam the alleys of Tinseltown, street-corner psychics have real powers, and cops use memory enhancement spells. But Celia thought she was an ordinary human, albeit one with a clairvoyant best friend and a ghostly little sister. The vampire attack that made Celia an abomination forces her to take food in liquid form and gives a whole new meaning to the word "sunburn". She's slowly adjusting (therapy sessions and all), when she discovers that the attack awakened a hidden part of her heritage....
Bodyguard Celia Graves has definitely accepted her share of weird assignments, both human and supernatural. But her newest job takes the cake. Guarding a prince from terrorists and religious fundamentalists is hard enough, but it seems like the entire supernatural world is after this guy too. When she is betrayed by those she is employed to help, and everything goes horribly wrong, Celia wakes to find herself transformed. Neither human nor vampire, Celia has become an abomination-something that should not exist-and now both human and supernatural alike want her dead.
