But Delores Hunter finds more than rumors. Deadly secrets hide in the dark. Irresistible Morgan Smith sends shivers of fear and desire through her body. He conceals nearly everything from her. She shouldn't want him. But when vampires attack at night, he rises to protect her. If only he'd let her touch him, but tender wounds tear open. Horrifying creatures stand between them. If Morgan and Delores can't conquer their demons they may lose each other forever.
