For decades, Jess Vandermire, has been fighting the city's biggest threat--deadly hunters in the night. But with John 'Britt' Brittain, by her side, there's nothing she can't handle. That is, until now. Suddenly...

The vampires Jess and Britt are hunting aren't acting like normal bloodsuckers. They're braver, smarter...and harder to kill.

The Vatican has ordered Jess's brother, Father Regent Vandermire, to save the soul of a massive, bloodthirsty creature. But his prayers aren't working. And if the monster gets much bigger, the whole city will need them.

Her beloved Britt is once again in her life. But until he understands his newfound powers, he won't touch her. Because there's a good chance his love might kill her...

Jess quickly realizes she and Britt aren't powerful enough to handle the upcoming challenge alone. There's only one man who can help--evangelist Malcolm Fisk. Too bad they can't trust him . . .

Tough vampire cop, Jess Vandermire, fights against her unholy brethren in New York City to protect the two men she loves more than life itself. But Jess is waging a personal war, too--to save the tiny shred of soul she has left. If she loses, so does the city . . .

New York City is in the grasp of a deadly, unseen enemy. But Lieutenant Jess Vandermire, New York City police officer, is uniquely specialized to recognize and fight this threat. It's her job to forge a black ops team--a team that is tough and, if need be, expendable. Jess understands what she's fighting and what's at stake. For her, it's all about retribution... until she recruits ex-cop John Brittain . . .

Suddenly, her priorities aren't quite so easily definable. John Brittain has a chip on his shoulder and is as strong as they come. But is he ready for the whole truth? That combating "super" vampires whose primal need for blood and the addictive drug "Sunshine" is only the beginning of their problems?

Because Jess has a secret. And when John finds out, will he stay and fight with her? Or will he realize that she's the enemy, too?

Jude Black was the deadliest Therian operative in North America . . . until his path collided with an enemy with golden eyes and a body that clouded his thinking.

Shapeshifter Jude Black, level six operative for the Therian Senate and their deadliest weapon, has served his superiors for ten years without question. He was raised to believe his job is one of the highest, most honorable occupations in the realm. Killing is what he does, and having each mission wiped from his memory is a non-issue . . . until his brother Garrett goes missing.

When it appears that the Senate's only concern is to make him forget the whereabouts of his only brother, Jude begins to question his loyalties. Then he meets the beautiful, hazel-eyed Letitia Hawkes, and his loyalty is put to the ultimate test. She is a werewolf, one of his race's sworn enemies. But she's being used by Eideroche Medical, the same people who made his brother disappear.

Jude's convinced Letitia is the key to the answers he desperately needs to find his brother. At least that's what he tells himself as he teams up with her to find out just what Eideroche is up to. But soon, Jude finds himself in the deadliest battle of his life. Because he's falling in love with Letitia. But by doing so, he might just be guaranteeing her death . . .
