Hope Barton, a lieutenant in the Reede County Sheriff's Office, discovers a chamber of horrors in the basement of an old house. What's worse, her ex-lover, Mark Wilder, is locked in one of the cells. He is naked and covered in bites and blood, and he has been changed into a vampire. Unless Hope can reawaken Mark’s human desires, he will remain the slave of a vicious predator.
No one in the Sheriff’s Office wants to believe the murderer of is a vampire. That hardly surprises Hope, but the authorities’ abnormal denial has a more terrifying cause, a predator with irresistable psychic abilities. Hope finds herself alone against her colleages, a sadistic vampire, and her dangerous ex-lover’s conflicting vampiric and human needs.
She must overcome Mark’s darkest desires, and her own. If they don’t destroy the predator, he will go on killing, and he will drag Mark in his murderous wake.
About The Author:
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author
Angela Knight’s first book was written in pencil and illustrated in crayon; she was nine years old at the time. But her mother was enthralled, and Angela was hooked.
In the years that followed, Angela managed to figure out a way to make a living—more or less—at what she loved best: writing. After a short career as a comic book writer, she became a newspaper reporter, covering everything from school board meetings to murders. Several of her stories won South Carolina Press Association awards under her real name.
Along the way, she found herself playing Lois Lane to her detective husband’s Superman. He’d go off to solve murders, and she’d sneak around after him trying to find out what was going on. The only time things got really uncomfortable was the day she watched him hunt pipe bombs, an experience she never wants to repeat.
But her first writing love has always been romance. She read The Wolf and The Dove at 15, at least until her mother caught her at it.
In 1996, she discovered the small press publisher Red Sage Publishing, and realized her dream of romance publication in the company’s Secrets 2 anthology. Since then, her work has appeared in four Secrets anthologies. She’s tremendously grateful to publisher Alexandria Kendall for the opportunity to make her dreams come true. She believes her writer son, Antony, will one day follow in her footsteps.
