Scouting Jasmine

by Jennifer Rardin

Publication Date—Apr 18, 2011

Jaz Parks is on the hunt for a politically-powerful vampire; but little does she know that she herself is being hunted – by her future boss, Vayl. In this exciting short story that takes place prior to Once Bitten, Twice Shy, Vayl sees Jaz in action for the very first time.

Word count: ~7200


Jasmine Parks leaned against a maple tree at the edge of a grassy path, one booted ankle crossed over the other. Her left hand clutched a knife nearly as long as a machete. In her right she held the Walther PPK that had made her the envy of every other assassin in her department. She called it Grief, and Vayl noted that she had already transformed it into crossbow mode as it rested against her thigh. He supposed it would serve her well once again in her mission to smoke Almont, the Vulture of Indianapolis.

  1. I’m a great fan of Jennifer Rardin Jaz Park books. Unfortunately I can only get her 8 main books in paperback and I want them all as ebooks including these new short stories but I cannot seem to buy them in the UK online anywhere.

    Please let me know where I can get them?
