Tired of the thin-blooded aristocrats in 1815 London, Alexius yearns for better sport. He is drawn to a dark-haired seductress who shows no fear and refuses to obey his commands. Entranced by such novelty, he denies his bloodlust and decides to keep her to warm his bed.
Immortal vampire hunter Morana has never mistaken her prey before, but the dark stranger mesmerizes her, enticing her to forget everything but the dangerous pleasure she finds in his arms.
Neither one can deny the pull of the other, but there is something beyond the lust—a recognition neither can put a name to. The past and present collide and unless they discover the truth behind the lies, Death will triumph once more.
Read Chapter One
“Phillips takes on a tricky trope in this steamy paranormal novella but navigates it with skill, keeping her characters and readers in the dark for as long as possible and captivating them with the heady sensuality and visceral desire of each scene. The dangerous, addictive passion that singes the main characters is all-encompassing and surprisingly revealing. Though there isn’t room to delve into all the plot twists and characters histories fully, the power and complexity more than makes up for any shortcomings and will leave fans begging for more.
An ancient vampire, Alexius has grown intolerably weary of the London ton. But the moment he sets eyes on Morana, he is captivated. Alexius is stunned by his undiminished desire for her defiant beauty – and startled to realize he has seen her smile before. A vampire hunter bent on retribution, Morana realizes after a single frenzied encounter with Alexius that her desire for revenge can never match her hunger for this arrogant, oddly familiar man. Their sudden lust may be shattering, but the secret of their connection has the power to destroy them forever.” 4 Stars Romantic Times BOOK Review
