A Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice Award Nominee
(’05, previous title: Before Night Falls)
Closing up her small bookstore is the end of a dream for Rachel Marks, and with debt collectors calling and nowhere to turn, she knows she’ll have to do whatever she can to make ends meet. When a waitressing job opens up at the hottest club in town, Rachel figures she can swallow her pride and put up with it long enough to pay off her bills—as long as she can avoid her mysterious and devastatingly sexy new boss, Devon Carnavorn, a man who’s as hard to trust as he is to resist.
Devon is a fallen vampire, part of a clan who exist as outcasts from the world of the living and denied the pleasures of the undead. Forced to endure a meaningless and loveless eternity with no hope for reprieve, he is bent on self-destruction—until he meets Rachel, a ravishing woman who fires his passion for the first time in centuries and may be his one chance at a dark salvation.
As the two spar and tangle in the dark and decadent club, where sexual frenzy pulses in time with the throbbing music, Rachel finds her blood running hot for Devyn. He’s a masterful, creative lover, wakening her to searing physical pleasures she’s never imagined and desires so dark and dangerous her heart races every time they touch. But there’s a price for each shattering encounter, and with the promise of giving Rachel the ultimate ecstasy, Devon will demand the ultimate sacrifice.
