in the Black Dagger Brotherhood world.
When Ahmareâ€™s brother is abducted, there is nothing she

for the lengths she will have to go to save his life. Paired

Duran, betrayed by his father, imprisoned in a dungeon for

shocked to find an unlikely and temporary freedom in the
form of a determined young female.
Battling against deadly forces and facing unforeseen peril,
the pair are in a race to save Ahmareâ€™s brother. As time
runs out, and the unthinkable looms, even true love may not
be enough to carry them through.
