He wanted me for my blood . . . Living on the run was all I'd ever known. My life was unstable, but at least I wasn't alone. That all changed when my mother was murdered. I ran from the unknown creatures she'd always feared. Until the day I stopped being afraid. That was my first mistake. Cashel Blackthorne took me as his captive, but more than that, he opened my eyes to the terrible truth of the world. Vampires exist, and I am the key to their salvation. The Blackthorne vampires need my blood but their prince desires more-me. There's something between us neither of us can deny. He is my captor, but I'll be his ruin. Contains mature themes.
