Lena, a vampire and a Guardian of the Order, has been honour-bound to protect human souls all her life. Acting first and thinking second is what's saved her skin time and again in the war against the Fallen, but her disregard for orders soon catches up with her when her boss is seriously injured because of her own, selfish mistake. Forced to take responsibility for her actions, and lead a team of Guardians who don't trust her, Lena is thrust back into the Vampire court and the path of her very own kryptonite; Thorn. The raw power of his soul calls to her and his mere presence lights a fire within her that she cannot contain. King Thorn of House Blackwood has never been that close to Lena. Now, circumstances dictate that they must work together and Thorn realises that a beautiful and alluring woman lies behind her warrior facade. Has he seen her without really seeing her? As the chances of finding a missing youngling go from unlikely to nigh-on impossible, Thorn feels himself drawn to Lena in a way he never expected. She awakens a need within him so deep, so shocking, so shameful, that he can hardly function. He wants her body. He needs her soul. With Vampire magic waning and the race in crisis, can either of them afford to ignore Nature's call? If they do, the future of the race is in jeopardy. If they don't, they will both lose the most precious part of themselves. Their souls. This is intended as a teaser for a forthcoming book. There will only be one chapter posted, but I hope you'll still enjoy and comment, and, if you do enjoy, you'll consider voting.
