Midnight in St. Petersburg

by Barbara J Webb

Original ONGOING Contemporary Fantasy Female Lead Magic Male Lead Multiple Lead Characters Urban Fantasy

A priest, a vampire, and a fairy walk into a bar….

The punchline wasn’t a joke; it was an honest-to-God job offer, promising Rose more money than she had ever seen and a chance to use abilities she’d kept secret all her life. Without hesitation, Rose dives into a world of expense accounts and elegance, of vodka shots with sorcerers at decadent night clubs and surreal moonlit dinners with vampire royalty.

But beneath all the glitz, St. Petersburg has a dark side that a sensitive like Rose can’t pretend she doesn’t see. Old wounds fester. Ancient grudges seethe. Rose and her team must master the intricate political landscape to bring a veneer of peace to the city — a task complicated by the fact that, while Rose is enthusiastic about success, her teammates all bear their own secrets agendas. How can they bring peace to the city, if they can’t keep from turning on each other?

And time is running out. Not only is Rose under a deadline to prove herself and keep her dream job, but she’s drawn the attention of a powerful killer who will stop at nothing to gain the revenge he seeks.
