Synopsis from Goodreads:
Grant Michaels, police officer. He thought Rayvin was a murderer. He will do whatever it takes to protect the community he loves from danger...but will he learn to trust his heart, and the word of a witch, before it's too late?
Malcolm de Sade, cunning vampire, imprisoned underground for a year by Charlotte Fanning and Pike Mahonen ("Mist and Midnight", Midnight Thirsts). His accidental release unleashes his hunger and ambition on a small, sleepy town…
Facing the past can be a nightmare. It's worse when a vampire is stalking you.
The characters in this novel were well developed. I appreciated the way that they fit together while still standing alone as individuals. It was the best of both worlds. You got to know them as couples, families, and communities, but also got to know all of the major players individually.
This is definitely a one of a kind novel. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and can’t wait to see what happens next in this series.
