**FINALIST for the 2014 USA Best Books Award for Romance**


“I’m so happy to have found this series, which is now on my top list of best paranormal books. If you love the Black Dagger Brotherhood, then this is another series you won’t want to miss!”

~ Fan review


Opening lines: Marissa Bonaventure sat bolt upright in bed. Wood cracked and splintered, a door banged, furniture scraped.


A typical night turns into one of terror when Marissa Bonaventure is savagely kidnapped from her bed. Dragged into what looks like a white slavery exchange, she is helpless to escape…until a smoldering, dark-clad stranger comes from out of nowhere to save her. Marissa is brought to the safety of a quirky underground town, where she’s offered a hefty sum of money to work for a year. Saddled with a lifetime of responsibilities, she is all about earning big bucks to fulfill her dreams. The bonus—she can date the smoldering Dev Nichita. But as a string of surreal events unfolds, nothing about the community—or Dev—turns out to be what it seems.


Stubborn and arrogant, leader of the elite, Special Operations Topside Team Dev Nichita is used to getting his way. When Marissa rejects him for being a vampire, he reacts with fury and withdrawal. Then an unexpected death forces Dev to face how much he truly wants the mate of his heart. But is he too late? Or can his tenuous relationship with Marissa rise above lies, anger, an otherworldly enemy’s threats, and the vicious backlash from a century-old betrayal?
