Celia Wird and her three sisters are just like other 20-something girls—with one tiny exception: they're products of a backfired curse that has given each of them unique powers that make them, well, weird…
The Wird sisters are content to avoid the local vampires, werebeasts, and witches of the Lake Tahoe region—until one of them blows up a vampire in self-defense. Everyone knows vampires aren't aggressive, and killing one is punishable by death. But soon more bloodlust-fueled attacks occur, and the community wonders: are the vampires of Tahoe cursed with a plague?
Celia reluctantly agrees to help Misha, the handsome leader of an infected vampire family. But Aric, the head of the werewolf pack determined to destroy Misha's family to keep the region safe, warns Celia to stay out of the fight. Caught between two hot alphas, Celia must find a way to please everyone, save everyone, and oh yeah, not lose her heart to the wrong guy—or die a miserable death. Because now that the evil behind the plague knows who Celia is, it’s coming for her and her sisters. This Wird girl has never had it so tough.
Robson combines four sisters with supernatural powers, a murderous yet sympathetic vampire, and a frightening virus in an engaging paranormal romance with bite. Misha Aleksander believes that the Wird sisters Celia, Taran, Shayna, and Emme caused the death of one of his relatives. When he discovers that a vampire virus, chronic bloodlust, is actually to blame, he recruits the sisters, all of whom are nurses, to suss out who's spreading it. As the sleuthing gets more intense and the body count rises, Celia winds up with two supernatural men vying for her attention: vampire Misha and his nemesis, werewolf Aric. Robson skillfully builds a believable world near Lake Tahoe for this solid page-turning debut.
