The Long Sleep by Ellen Mellor

Rachel Cantrell isn't a very nice person.

She is a Ghostkin – the daughter of a living woman and her ghost husband, able to allow her spirit to roam independently. She is also transgender. And an expert thief.

Things seem to be going well for her when she starts working for Fred Mott, the local human crimelord. She even meets and falls in love with a beautiful woman.

But her life starts to crumble when she gets caught up in a gang war between Fred Mott and his vampiric opposition, George Bailey. Things get even worse when Bailey enslaves her and forces her to his will. Especially as he wants to take over the city of Newcastle and turn it into his own personal kingdom.

Rachel will need to use all her strength, courage and guile - not to mention her friends - to escape from Bailey's grasp and stop his plans from coming to fruition. Especially when she knows that going anywhere near him could mean her enslavement once again.
