Book Description:

Christian is the exception to Tiffany’s rule that all males are louses. For years Tiffany has lusted after Christian and of late she can’t help but wonder what it might be like to have a brief fling with him. The opportunity to explore her secret fantasy appears when Christian offers her a job as the IT person for his practice, the V clinic. She knows if he gives her the green light, she’s going to have a romp with her sexy vampire. When the night finally arrives and she and Christian have sex, the experience is so overwhelmingly powerful, Tiffany backpedals and tries to turn down the heat between them. She’s human. He’s a vampire. She can’t afford to fall in love with him.

Christian has other ideas. During their sexual encounter, he discovers Tiffany is his life mate and he vows to change her thinking. His intentions are put on hold when he gets caught up in an angel of death’s vicious plan to chemically terminate V clinic patients’ pregnancies. Tiffany herself falls victim to a lethal dose of arsenic and Christian can only save her by turning her into a vampire. She’s furious when she wakes from her turning and discovers what Christian has done. She wants nothing to do with him ever again, but when she’s kidnapped by this angel of death and used as a guinea pig for deadly experiments she only has Christian to turn to save her life.

Excerpt:
Nathan’s men
rushed inside, Christian at their heels. He flipped up his sunglasses and
looked about the inky darkness of a huge garage, plenty luminous for vampire
eyes. Another standard door led to the belly of the building in the far right
corner. He headed toward it, behind Nathan’s six men. Asa, Dominic and Nathan
took up the rear, single file behind him.
At this point
most everyone inside had surely heard the door come down. Christian needed to
alert Tiffany and make her ready for whatever transpired once they emerged into
the building’s interior.
We’re here. Get
ready. Say nothing and stay calm. I’ll be there before you know it.
You’re here? Thank
God, Christian.
Are you alone?
Yeah, I’m still
alone and tied down to this damned bed. My heart is about to beat out of my
chest. That’s my only tell, but no one except a vampire could here it.
I’ll hear it
soon enough and it will be music to my ears.
Be careful.
You too.
Two of Nathan’s
men took the battering ram to the interior door. Once it was relieved of it’s
hinges, Christian rushed inside behind four of Nathan’s men. He expected to be
met by the very least the brother armed to defend his turf, but instead two
young thin vampire girls with hideously gray skin and gaunt features stood in a
long hall just out a doorway to his right. The scent of chili wafted from the
room, and Christian assumed it to be a kitchen.
The two girls
appeared terrified, frozen in place, eyes wide and flitting from one armed man
to another.
“Hands in the
air!” one of the humans ordered.
They instantly
obeyed.
Christian raised
the barrel of his gun toward the ceiling. These poor little things were no
threat. “Are you here by choice?” he asked them.
Both shook their
heads, still wearing petrified expressions.
“Take us to the
four women they brought here three days ago,” he demanded.
Just then a man
walked out the doorway, hands in the air. Christian saw a holstered gun on his
hip. The others must have too. Every man took aim on him with their weapons.
“Get down! Face
down on the floor. Hands behind your head!” two of the human men yelled.
He did their
bidding without a word. Seconds later he was swarmed by three humans, stripped
of his gun and handcuffed.
Christian
glanced at Asa who stared at the two frightened vampire girls with pity. He
felt the same emotion himself, but he needed them to lead him to Tiffany and
the others.
“Where are the
women?” he asked again with less rancor.
The one closest
to them finally answered. “D-down this hallway, take a left and you’ll find
them in the curtained cubicles.”
Christian wanted
to bolt in the direction they’d indicated, but he held back, glanced at Asa
then behind him at Nathan, Dominic and Dimitri. They all wore an expression
similar to what was on his mind. This was just too damned easy.
“Are you Terry,
Charla’s brother?” Christian asked, stepping up to the head of the prone man
who craned his head to glare up at him with equal doses of hate and spite.
“How do you know
my name?”
“Never mind
that. Get up and lead us to the women.” Christian yanked him up and onto his
feet so fast, he’d probably dislocated his shoulder. A harsh grunt of pain said
he was correct, but he didn’t care. This man was part of this kidnapping and
drugging ring. He deserved a bullet between the eyes, but right now he’d serve
just fine as a hostage.
The young sickly
girls did not deserve such treatment. “Dominic, Dimitri, could you escort these
young ladies out of the building? That is if you want to leave. We’ll make sure
you get home, back to your lives, families, whatever.”
Both shook their
heads adamantly and the two men corralled them around the small posse in the
entryway then out of the building.
Christian shoved
the barrel of his gun against the man’s spine. “Lead us to them now.”
Terry, craned
his head back and gave him a look of disgust. “I’ll lead you right to them,
vampire, but it won’t do you any good. By now they’re all on their way out. I’m
sorry about that. I really am. I liked that one with the mouth.”
“Tiffany.”
“Yeah. That’d be
the one.”
“You’d better
qualify that comment and quick if you want to live. Where are they being
taken?”



“I couldn’t
answer that, but maybe you can. Where do vampires go when they die?”
