Her Cross To Bear (House of Van Helsing Book 1) by Erin Bedford
The world of monsters is real. Everything that goes bump in the night is true and they are coming for you.
Only one family of supernatural beings can police them all.
The Van Helsings.
When the leader of the supernatural police force announces his retirement, leaving his daughter and sole heir to take up the mantel, it’s not just the supernatural community who’s a bit unsettled.
Crysta Van Helsing, sole heir and daughter of Abraham Van Helsing, will have to prove her worth to the other supernatural houses and herself all while keeping the secret of a lifetime.
If trying to win over vampires, werewolves, and demons weren’t bad enough, now someone wants Crysta dead.
Someone who doesn’t want her to take over the Van Helsing legacy. Someone who wants it all to end.

Excerpt Her Cross To Bear by Erin Bedford
“Could you really kill me, pet? Put a bullet straight through my undead heart?” Xavier placed his hands over his heart his eyes watching me with curious intent.
He didn’t think I’d do it.
My voice was steady and cold when I answered. “Yes.”
“You would really do it, wouldn’t you?”
“It’s what I do.”
“Do it then?” Xavier grabbed the barrel of my gun and shifted it up to point at his heart. “What’s worse a monster who knows what he is or one that pretends to be otherwise? You Van Helsings have a god complex like no other and forget you are just as bad as the rest of us.”
He pushed against the barrel until it had to be biting into his flesh, while he whispered,
“There’s a reason you’re the ones the monsters fear.”
