Since half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her undead lover Bones met six years ago, they’ve fought against the rogue undead, battled a vengeful Master vampire, and pledged their devotion with a blood bond. Now it’s time for a vacation. But their hopes for a perfect Paris holiday are dashed when Cat awakes one night in terror. She’s having visions of a vampire named Gregor who’s more powerful than Bones and has ties to her past that even Cat herself didn’t know about.
Gregor believes Cat is his and he won’t stop until he has her. As the battle begins between the vamp who haunts her nightmares and the one who has her heart, only Cat can break Gregor’s hold over her. She’ll need all the power she can summon in order to bring down the baddest bloodsucker she’s ever faced … even if getting that power will result in an early grave.

Read the one-page teaser scene that appears in the front of the book:
Bones had an arm around my waist, locking me next to him. My squirming only ratcheted my dress higher as his hands bunched it up. Then the sudden pierce of his fangs into my neck made me freeze. A low rumble of pleasure came from him.
“Ah, Kitten, you love that almost as much as I do. Sink into me, luv, as I do the same.”
The blood leaving me and spilling into him felt like it was replaced by sweet fire. Bones was right; I loved it when he bit me. My skin felt hot, my heartbeat quickened – and then I was rubbing against him and moaning at the delay of him unzipping his pants.
“Bones,” I managed. “Yes–”
The building hit me in the face so hard I felt my cheek fracture. It must have been hard enough to knock me unconscious, too. Just for a second. And then the gunfire registered.
It came in staccato bursts from above us, on all sides … everywhere but from the building I was mashed against. Bones had me pressed into the brick. His body covered mine and he was draped over me, shuddering while he punched at the wall in front of me, trying to make a door where one didn’t exist.
That’s when I realized why he was shaking. Bones was being strafed with dozens of bullets.
