In this exciting debut, author Keri Arthur
explodes onto the supernatural scene with a sexy,
sensuous tale of intrigue and suspense set in a world
where legends walk and the shady paths of the underworld
are far more sinister than anyone envisioned.
A rare hybrid of vampire and werewolf, Riley Jenson and
her twin brother, Rhoan, work for Melbourneâ€™s Directorate
of Other Races, an organization created to police the
supernatural racesâ€“and protect humans from their
depredations. While Rhoan is an exalted guardian, a.k.a.
assassin, Riley is merely an office workerâ€“until her
brother goes missing on one of his missions. The timing
couldnâ€™t be worse. More werewolf than vampire, Riley is
vulnerable to the moon heat, the weeklong period before
the full moon, when her need to mate becomes all-consuming.
Luckily Riley has two willing partners to satisfy her
every need. But she will have to control her urges if
sheâ€™s going to find her brotherâ€¦.Easier said than done as
the city pulses with frenzied desire, and Riley is
confronted with a very powerfulâ€“and delectably nakedâ€“vamp
who raises her temperature like never before.
In matters carnal, Riley has met her match. But in matters
criminal, she must follow her instincts not only to find
her brother but to stop an unholy harvest. For someone is
doing some shifty cloning in an attempt to produce the
ultimate warriorâ€“by tapping into the genome of nonhumans
like Rhoan. Now Riley knows just how dangerous the world
is for her kindâ€“and just how much it needs her.
