Harm no human. While the FBI tries to keep rogue vampires from preying on humans—for killing, for turning, for pleasure—the stakes only get higher. "If you're looking for a hot, sexy, emotional read, Virna DePaul delivers!"—New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner
Ex-soldier Barrett Miles had no idea that vampires were real—until the Bureau recruits her to serve as a covert agent and infiltrate a murderous sex ring run by the most depraved of immortals, those who feed on the purity and blood of innocents. Their latest victim: a young girl whom Barrett promised to protect. Teamed up with her former lover, undercover sniper Nick Maltese, Barrett is caught between fulfilling her personal mission and shielding her heart from the man who betrayed her.
Nick's hunting a different kind of enemy from what he was used to in Iraq. But what really throws him for a loop is seeing Barrett again. As desires from the past resurface, Nick finds he wants her more than ever. Together the hunt begins—and their love forces them to embrace the darkest places in their souls.
