A millennium ago, it started with a beautiful woman. She entered Preston Ciora’s life, captured him body and soul . . . until he discovered she was the “undead”. Preston’s heart would not allow him to run. And to prove that resolve, Preston renounced his mortality to live as a vampyre.
Three years of blissful living ended with the murder of his sire, and life-mate, by a dogmatist Carpathian hunter. The event left Preston alone, emotionally crippled, and on a path of destruction in which he punished anyone who displeased him.
Preston Ciora now regards America as his home and rules over the Western Vampyre clans, though not by choice. During the day, he works as a homicide detective to monitor suspicious activity that might lead to a vampyre. At night, Preston dishes justice out as judge, jury, and executioner, vampyre style.
A series of grisly murders rattles those under Preston’s protection and threatens to expose his people to the mortal world. Gathered evidence points to a delusional vampyre associated with an ancient shape-shifter – who is working an agenda of his own.
Making matters worse, a peculiar woman, during a palm reading, informs Preston love in the guise of a fire-breathing hellion named Lindsey is coming. Despite all efforts to defy the foretelling, Preston finds himself embroiled in an edgy battle to win her heart – a war he would prefer to lose.
