Ashton Jones wasn’t just any serial killer, he was –the- serial killer, the one who had killed her twin sister, the one who had gotten away, the one who had ruined her career as a detective. Now a sanctioned vampire assassin, she finds herself partnered with the man she vowed to kill at any cost.
Altania Lewis wasn’t just any woman, she was –the- woman, the one who had gotten away, the one he couldn’t bring himself to kill, the one whom he had obsessed over for years beyond count. Now a sanctioned vampire assassin, he finds himself partnered with the one woman he vowed to conquer…mind, body, and soul.
Their partnership sanctioned by The Vampire High Council, Ash and Alty are expected to protect each other with their last breath. Ash swears he is a changed man with a new respect for life. Altania does not believe a heart as black as his can ever change. Will their burning hatred for each other compromise their mission, or has Ash’s newfound immortality not only turned him into a member of the undead, but also into a man worthy of Altania’s love?
