Here’s the set-up for Kate Danley’s Maggie for Hire, just $2.99 on Kindle:
When monsters appear on Earth, Maggie MacKay is on the job. No one is better at hauling the creepy crawlies back where they belong. No one, that is, except her dad, who disappeared without a trace in the middle of an assignment.
Now an elf named Killian has shown up with a gig. Seems Maggie’s uncle teamed up with the forces of dark to turn Earth into a vampire convenience store, serving bottomless refills on humans.
The only hope for survival lies in tracking down two magical objects and a secret that disappeared with Maggie’s dad.

From the reviewers:
“If urban fantasy could be bottled, then this story is a shot-glass full of awesomesauce.” – Dark Side of the Covers
“Combine vampires, ghouls, and one whip-smart, take-charge heroine, and you have a recipe for success. Kate Danley has served up a female lead character to fill the gap that the ending of Buffy the Vampire Slayer left in the world of sci-fi/fantasy.” – Twisting the Lens
The characters grab you from the very start. I love a story that has a strong female protagonist and ‘Maggie for Hire’ does not disappoint. The author has a way of drawing the reader in as if you are witnessing first hand the events as they unfold. I highly recommend this book. – Tianana
