Bloody Good (Brytewood, #1) by Georgia Evans
This adorable ditty is a cross between PNR and historical fiction – vamps in a sleepy English town during WWII.
While the sounds of battle echo through the sky, a lady doctor has more than enough trouble to keep her busy even in a sleepy hamlet outside London. But the threat is nearer home than Alice knows.

Alice has no time for fantasy, but when the corpses start appearing sucked dry, she’ll have to accept help where she can get it.

With a sadistic Spycatcher closing in, Saliel and her fellow spies are tested to the limits of their endurance—they must trust each other, or die. Magic may be their only hope of survival…
