Hamilton unrelated to Anitaverse.


In the Bite anthology, the story is said to be set between Blue Moon and Obsidian Butterfly. In the Strange Candy anthology, it's more generally set before Narcissus In Chains.


Ms. Rhonda Mackenzie wants vampire executioner Anita Blake to find the vampire that has bitten her daughter two times and kill it. If she is bitten three times she will become a vampire, which is what the daughter wants, because she will lose one leg, perhaps two if she doesn’t change over. Anita asks the Master of the City, Jean-Claude if he will help her find the vampire. After not seeing him for a long time because she was learning to control her powers, Anita realizes her feelings for him have not changed.
