It was immediate for Roman. In three thousand years, he’d never lost control of his emotions, or his heart. But the moment he laid eyes on Evelynne Farrow, he knew she was the woman who haunted his dreams. And everything changed.
Evie Farrow has always loved a good vampire romance. In fact, she makes a living writing them. While sitting in a coffee shop and working on her next mega-hot book, Evie is approached by a tall, dark, and handsome man who could have been pulled directly from one of her novels.
Unbeknownst to her, Roman D’Angelo is exactly what he appears to be – a vampire, and not just any vampire, but the king of vampires.
Unfortunately, while Roman is both ancient and invulnerable, Evie is flesh and blood. Just as Roman decides that he and Evie have a date with destiny, for reasons of their own, an ancient god and a homicidal vampire take an equally strong interest in her.

Not now.” He paused. “But I could at first.” “What?” Outrage surged up within Evie, nearly choking her. She slowly got to her feet, her eyes wide. He followed her up. “You read my mind?” “Yes,” he said quite simply. Again, it was just an admission of guilt.

Hunters will have a field day with us all then.” “They’re certainly having a field day now,” said Samantha. “If we thought that Gabriel Phelan was as bad as it could get, we were dead wrong. The Hunters’ new leader is ten times worse and apparently he’s backed by some kind of magic. He’s been able to organize the Hunters like
you’ll live to do so.” She almost said the words then. She almost surrendered and gave him what he wanted. She just wanted the torture to stop. But instead she shook her head, dizzy as it made her, and pushed the thoughts from her mind. No, she told herself. Just hang on a little while longer. Her heart seemed to flutter, as if sighing in helpless response. She’d lost too much blood. She could feel herself slipping. Oh God, Roman, she thought miserably. Please hurry. ***** Charles took a
