This is the first installment in the Argeneau series. This is about Lissianne, a vampire, but the twist is that vampires are not what we have always thought of them as, they are basically human, but need blood to survive, like hemophiliacs. The race originally started way back in Atlantis, when nanos were invented (tiny, tiny computers, that are introduced into the body intravenously, designed to repair the body, then self destruct) the problems is that the body is always sustaining damage. From the sun.. from aging.. from disease... so the nanos are constantly repairing the body, so you live much longer, and it is the nanos that require the blood, they use blood to reproduce and for fuel, so the more damage your body sustains, the more blood you need to drink.
Anyway, Lissianne has a phobia... she is hemophobic, this can be a major problem to someone who must drink blood to survive!! So her mother kidnaps a psychologist who specializes in phobias for Lissi's birthday to cure her of her phobia.
This was great, I can't wait to get to more in the series!!!
