Nevada Hamilton has learned
a few things since becoming a Sin City Collector, and staying away from
vampires is one of them. After botching her first Collection, the vamp
getting away after causing as much damage as possible, she hasn’t been
assigned to another one since.
But when she receives her next
playing card, she’s in for a surprise. Not only is a vampire her next
target, but they’ve paired her up to make sure she gets the job done
right. Refusing a Collection is not an option, but when she discovers
who she’s working with, making the mission as difficult as possible for
her new partner becomes her top priority…
Being a hellhound isn’t
enough to protect Jake Troubadour from Nevada Hamilton, no matter how
thick his skin is. Finding out he has to work with the beautiful
dhampir, after not seeing her for three years, is a low blow—but Jake is
a professional. He takes his Collections as seriously as he does
running his bar. He’ll do whatever it takes to get the job done, but
after that, he’s out. No more chances for the girl who wrecked his bike
and scarred his soul so long ago. But even with his heart dead set
against it, this hellhound quickly finds he’s not immune to love after
What’s Collected in Vegas, stays in Vegas...
