Long ago Javier chose to walk away from the one person who
mattered in his life. Now that he is free once again to roam
the Earth, he becomes obsessed with making up for past
mistakes. His mission is to gain Catherine's vote for the
vampires on the Immortal Council, but when he sees her he
realizes he wants much more. He wants her heart. When she
disappears from the Councilâ€™s halls, he tracks her down,
determined to make her remember the past -- and the love
they once shared.
Catherine canâ€™t let her passion for Javier rekindle -- no
matter what the cost. Much has changed since he abandoned
her so long ago. With the Immortal Council fragmented and
her werewolf king abducted, Catherine has little patience
for Javier's empty promises. Still, he is persistent, and
she sees the value in having an ancient vampire for an ally.
They strike a deal: she will submit to his every carnal
desire if he will help find her king. Unfortunately, things
don't go as planned, and their erotic interludes ignite the
passionate anger of Catherineâ€™s only fey ally. Now, all
three of their lives are in jeopardy. To survive, Javier
must build an intimate bond with the only woman who has ever
rejected his love, and a man whoâ€™d like nothing more than to
see him dead.
