Being a Vampire isn't easy, and Sara Grey knows it. Her continued desire for anonymity pushes her from Crete back to her ancestral home in England. There, she runs up against The Brenfield Society, who want to take possession of her mystical amulet. Sara knows she can't give it up, but isn't sure why.
Trying to unlock some of the jewel's secrets, Sara makes her way into the Secret Archives at the Vatican with the help of her friend and priest, Father David. But, while in Rome on their mission, they receive news that her Vampire lover, Antonio, is being imprisoned in the lands to the east of the Black Sea. This news sends the two of them off on an unplanned adventure through strange lands to rescue the one who made her, all the time having to deal with Brenfield agents that keep appearing in her path.
Once back in England, her feud with the mysterious group escalates into all-out war. The bloodshed follows Sara to her new home in New York and back to England once more. Finally, in London, with a new name and teenage appearance, she must make her case for being both human, and a Lady, at the Court of the Queen, or else.

Contention was a Finalist for ForeWord Reviews 2010 Book of the Year Competition, in the Horror Category
Beginning on the dark and gloomy seventeenth century London harbor docks, Lady Sara Anne Grey sets out to tell her tale of existence as a vampire. Her story turns out to be not only one of a transition to the undead, but also from only daughter to self-made business mogul. Constantly under siege from her darker nature Sara’s light hearted youthfulness slowly gives way to pragmatism. In telling her story of years gone by comes a realization that dealing with both the undead and the human realms has led her to view worldly events not merely as good versus evil but more situations of cause and effect. A view that seems to slowly separate her from both the humans and vampires.
Reflection received an Honorable Mention in the Horror category at the 2008 DIY Convention
