Hartman House
A L Wright, author
After losing her only friend, young witch Rodelle is rescued and taken to Hartman House: a safe haven for all supernatural beings. The Hartman family was famous for their wizardry, always trying to protect their own - and other magical beings as well. A place where mystical beings live, the House is protected by powerful magic. After Rodelle meets the handsome vampire, Dreven, she is immediately and inexplicably drawn to him. But it soon turns out that they have a history - and that danger is lurking right around the corner, ready to claim them both. With both powerful allies and enemies at play, can Rodelle and Dreven discover the secrets of their past?
Reviews
Ted Williams via Authors Den

My Horror literary diet began w/'Alfred Hitchcock Presents' episodes written by Roald Dahl and Robert Bloch. A L Wright is neither of these writers. She infuses the genre with a modern air but still maintains the suspense and shock using classic trophes. While not my standard fare of reading I gave it a go and was pleasantly suprised. 
This is a fast paced character driven story that begins w/a take to prisoner action scene and dives right into the plot line w/o the expected backstory development usually employed in contempory lit of this nature. 
Wright's characters speak and develope themselves and build the suspense necessary to move the story along w/o long descriptive passages and cumbersome detail. 
The story moves nicely, the characters have a genuine feel and the overall tone is believeable and fresh. If anything it is a bit brief. Not to be confused w/rushed. When finished I was left w/the impression that this was an initial offering of a much larger work. If so I look expectantly ahead to reading more of A L Wright's work, seeing where she goes w/the story and where she takes these characters next!
