Ava Delaney series by Claire Farrell
Part vampire, the only thing greater than Ava Delaney's thirst for human blood is her capacity for guilt. When she accidentally turns a human into her minion, she does her best to set him free - but her attempts land her in the middle of a potential vampire civil war. With the help of some new friends with ambiguous loyalties, Ava tries to save her human . . . and herself.Novellana Douglass had just finished her undergraduate studies at the highly selective, but practically unheard of Jochawk Institute, and returned home for the summer when she found herself falling for a mysterious pen pal, named James. While their letters brought them closer, Novellana tried not to worry about her unanswered graduate applications. She could never have dreamed that upon her return to school, she would be accepted into the Classifieds, a series of studies rumored to be able to make pigs fly. Beginning her exploration into space and time manipulation, she discovered dramas she'd never dealt with before, including the wealthy, insufferable son of the world's most famous failed romance, Jamison Doyle. But while her research and her lab partner overwhelmed her, she discovered that love was closer than she ever could have imagined.
