Under My Skin by Judith Graves
Under my Skin:
All her parents wanted was for Eryn to live a normal life...
Redgrave had its share of monsters before Eryn moved to town. Mauled pets, missing children. The Delacroix family is taking the blame, but Eryn knows the truth. Something stalks the night. Wade, the police chief's son and Redgrave High's resident hottie, warns her the Delacroix are dangerous. But then so is Eryn--in fact, she's lethal.
But she can't help falling for one of the Delacroix boys, dark, brooding--human Alec. And then her world falls apart.
A normal life? Now that's the real fairytale.
Judith Graves is a Canadian author who has created a world within the paranormal realm that is unique and filled with intrigue. After the mysterious disappearance of her parents, Eryn moves to a small, isolated town thinking things are going to be perfectly normal...perfectly boring. But after only a short time she is approached by a werewolf after becoming separated from the rest of her class. Her scent is strange to the werewolf making her smell like a tasty meal, because Eryn is not quite human. But she has been raised to protect herself against such creatures. Nothing is as it appears in this seemingly perfect little town, her new friends, Brit, Alec and Matt--the Delacroix brothers, have more in common with her then she first believed. As Alec and Eryn's feelings for one another begin to grow, corruption in the police force has the entire town turned against the Delacroix family. Meanwhile, Wade, the police chief's son, is getting closer to Eryn and she's finding it harder and harder to resist his charms and the connection she feels between them when he is near. Pitted against a master vampire, the group of friends are in for a fight that none of them are prepared for, and it just might cost them more than they are willing to pay.
