When she stood face to face with a vampire in the moonlit meadow, Sarah knew that her grandfather's journal contained the truth, and that her life had suddenly gotten very complicated.

Here's the set-up:
Sarah has spent her whole life believing that her mother had died in a car accident. When her father passes away and leaves her to run the family-owned Woodhaven Inn, she finds out that the Inn isn't the only thing she's about to inherit. Her life is about to get very complicated.
It was a flash in the moonlight, a blur of motion like she'd never witnessed before. No human had the capacity to move like that. When she found herself face-to-face with him there in the meadow, she knew without a doubt that the journal was authentic. She knew that grandfather hadn’t been crazy at all.
Because a foot away stood a vampire.
Sarah had read grandfather's journal in stunned disbelief. What was once grandfather's responsibility has passed to her father and now to her. She has become the Warden. Her life will never be the same.
Part one of a three-part series. It is 31,880 words long.

From the reviewers:
Totally amazing! I read this book in one day! I couldn't get enough of the story! I got to the last page and wanted more! Can't wait for the next book!
To say I liked this book would be an understatement! I loved this book! Not only is it suspenseful, it is romantic with a dark twist. Comparable to the Twilight series, Vampire's Warden is a must read! An explicit start to an exciting series. Can't wait for the next book to come out!
Have read the Twilight Series and this is rated almost as good as it.
S.J. Wright is an up and coming new author who has written a book that pushes into an area where few dare to go in her diversion from the norm of what is and isn't acceptable with regard to the characteristics of vampires. Her inclusion of the 'watcher' or 'warden' is also an interesting twist.
Ms.Wright is an author to watch. She tells the vampire story from a fresh perspective--that of a heroine who's got what it takes to handle not only the undead, but the criminally undead. There are some flaws, but they're easily overlooked by the reader who likes a page turner.
I lost some sleep over this book, preferring to stay up until the wee hours of the morning to find out what happened. I can't recommend it enough!
The unconventional spin on a traditionally overdone topic refreshes it and makes it into something new.
