|Plot Summary of Sealed in Blood|
Amber Quill, 2003, 188 pp.
Berkley psychology professor Nigel Jameson is a late attendee at the Sequoiacon Science Fiction Convention, but he is not there as a fan. Instead, the vampire seeks to gain possession of graphic photos that could expose and endanger his race to the prejudices of humans. Convention participant Keith Brewster swears he will prove that an alien creature exists on earth.
Nigel enlists the aid of another attendee thirty something librarian Sherri Hudson, who though she is attracted to him, remains reluctant to break and enter someone else's room to steal the pictures. However, the duo accomplishes his mission only for him to realize from the photos that his sister is in deep trouble. Working together to rescue Laura, Sherri and Nigel fall in love even as she learns the truth about her partner.
