Krysta is used to getting the drop on vampires. Her
"special abilities" aren't much, but the plan is
simple—she plays helpless pretty young thing to lure
them in. Then her shoto swords come out and it's bye-bye,
bloodsucker. Until one night she finds herself with an
unexpected ally. He's a vampire, all right, but different.
Mysterious. Handsome. And more interested in saving her
skin than draining it.
Etienne has been an Immortal Guardian for two hundred
years—long enough to know that Krysta is special. He
can't stop thinking about her long legs, even more than her
short swords. Then he discovers the vamps she's
exterminating have friends in high places, and the Guardians
are in danger too. He'll have to accept Krysta's help to
save them. The stakes for a mortal are high. But the cost
to his heart might be higher. . .
