Lane is a sun fae.

There is only one hybrid fae in existence, and that dishonor goes to Lane Callaghan.

After a life spent dodging slurs, threats, and assassination attempts, Lane gave her past the one finger salute and ditched her former fae home for good. The detective agency she and her sisters run on the edge of Las Vegas continues to limp along, with Lane doing more debt collecting and intimidating than investigating, but anything to pay the bills. Between working for low-lifes to bring down even lower-lifes, eating cheesy poofs by the bucket, and flirting with the criminally attractive bartender where she conducts business, life is good.

That ends when a routine job goes sideways, leaving Lane with a sack full of stolen sun shards—the source of sun fae power. Without the shards, the sun fae face giving up their magic completely, or risk death if they use their power. Considering they would rather see her dead, good riddance, as far as Lane’s concerned—except her father and adopted sister are sun fae. Lane must choose—return home to save the fae bastards that almost killed her, or let them burn.

Bad Girls Bite

Being bad never tasted so good

Lane Callaghan almost died six months ago. Her heroic deed finally achieved the one thing she always wanted and finally realized she never needed—the sun fae’s respect. While the fae no longer wish her dead, she has new bigger, badder enemies at large. And after inadvertently binding herself to the beast inside her sugar muffin, Teddy, possibly within her bedroom.

Once again thrust into the unwanted role of heroine, Lane and her sisters are hired—some would say forced—into another job. This time, it isn’t just the sun stones that are missing, sun fae are vanishing without a trace. As Lane reluctantly begins to peel back the layers of the investigation, she discovers sun fae secrets and shames that hit a little too close to home and threaten to tear her family apart.

Lane must navigate a treacherous path through lies, secrets, and escaped homicidal druids, all with the jaws of Teddy’s black wolf hovering at her neck.

I am an urban fantasy and paranormal romance author with a deep love for humor, fast-paced action, and hit-you-in-the-heart feels. I grew up imagining goblins living in the rocks outside her bedroom window, while fairies flew through the flowers. Now I put those stories to paper. When not writing, I am either photographing the beautiful New England area, hiking, gaming with my equally nerdy husband, or attending to the small furry overlords who rule us both.

the Hollows series

With tantalizing hints of a wolfy blood tryst, a heavy dose of sisterly love, and plot twists to make the ride a surprise, S.L Choi’s, Bad Girls Drink Blood is too much fun. This brand-new world and mythos are a pleasure to explore. Solid world building, easy to grasp politics, hints of future romance and plenty of snark are the perfect scaffold to a story about finding that your scars are only the signposts of your hidden abilities, and that the part of you that brings you the most pain, can also be the wellspring of your deepest satisfaction.

If you like the Hollows, you will love this.

Author of The Family Cross and For the Murder

Bad Girls Drink Blood has everything I love: a heroine that can put bad guys in the dirt, side-splitting humor, and characters you’re invested in from page one. In a debut that is both heart-wrenching and wildly hilarious from start to finish, Choi carves out her place in a crowded genre with what I hope to be a long series.

This story hits the ground running and sprints full-tilt to the end until I was turning pages faster than my kindle could keep up!
The writing is crisp, the characters delightful, and the worldbuilding is absolutely phenomenal. Faes, shifters, druids, and a hot bartender who’s not what he seems. Yes please!
I loved Lane and her sisters so much, and I can’t wait for more stories about them and their detective agency. Bad Girls Drink Blood is a sparkling urban fantasy gem with a gooey romance center. Highly recommend
