About the Book

Centuries ago, the vampire race was almost destroyed.

Now, salvation rests upon one – the last true vampire.

For centuries, Jenner has been plagued by the shadows of his past. Now, a newly-turned vampire, he stalks the night like a wild predator, unable to satisfy his insatiable desires. Until a beautiful vampire sets his soul on fire. . .

Bria is pure innocence, hidden her whole life from a merciless enemy determined to hunt her down. When things become perilous, safety comes in the form of a fearsome bodyguard – Jenner.

One fateful night, Bria is saved by her vampire protector and a blazing connection is sparked. But surrendering to the powerful call of passion means breaking free from the shackles of their pasts. And with the war against the slayers more savage than ever, they must fight to survive. For the vampire race depends on it.

Acknowledgments

Thanks to infinity go out to the readers for taking a chance on my crazy vampire world and embracing it. You’re the best!

Thanks also to my family for putting up with my crazy deadlines and stints of disconnect while I live in an imaginary world. And to my agent, Natanya Wheeler, for believing in me and continuing to support me. Huge thanks to my awesome editor, Monique Patterson, whose enthusiasm continues to convince me that I might actually be getting the hang of this whole writing thing.

Another big thanks to everyone at NYLA, as well as Alex Sehulster and the wonderful copy editors, cover artists, proofreaders, and marketing team at SMP that continue to support me. You guys rock!

As always, I take full credit for any and all mistakes. If I’ve missed anyone here, I’m going to accredit it to my post work-out brain haze. But you know who you are and what you mean to me.

CHAPTER
1

“Jenner
. . . you’re
insatiable
.”

Wasn’t that the fucking truth.

He sealed the punctures in the female’s throat. A slow sigh slipped from between her parted lips as he rolled her limp body off of his chest and onto the mattress beside him. He hadn’t even bothered to get her name, but she sure as hell knew his. Came with the territory when you were one of only a few vampires in a sea of hopeful dhampirs.

Was it so bad that he’d used her body and taken her vein? As a dhampir, she nourished herself from his life force. Whether intentionally or not, she’d used him as well. Besides, he’d made sure she’d gotten off. A few times. He doubted she’d be complaining anytime soon. Hell, he doubted she’d be doing much of anything for a good, long while. Over the course of the night he’d exhausted her body and nearly drained it of blood. In hindsight, he should have gone easier on her, but there wasn’t a whole hell of a lot he could do about that now.
