Sometimes, your life begins the day you die…
Asher Evans is a man haunted by history. Turned vampire in the concentration camp that claimed his family, he has never recovered from the loss of his humanity. Removed from the mundane world and resigned to facing eternity alone, he’s completely unprepared when the unthinkable happens: he meets a girl.
As the youngest daughter of San Francisco’s most prestigious psychic family, Grace Alan has always known about the things that go bump in the night. Born with a terrible condition that isolates her from everyone she loves, Grace has spent her entire life trying to be normal. Finally, things seem to be looking up. There’s only one problem.
She’s just been murdered.
When Asher stumbles upon a dying Grace, he knows he should leave her to her fate. But in a world that looks at him and sees only a monster, Grace reminds him what it feels like to be human. He can’t bring himself to let her die.
Unfortunately, rescuing her has consequences. Female vampires have been illegal for centuries. In saving Grace, Asher may have condemned them both.
“Well written, the suspense is perfectly paced, the dialogue outstanding, and the romance is touchingly unique… If you’re looking for something different in the vampire world, I highly recommend this series.”
-Jacqueline Rhoades, The Wolvers Series
“This is a very different paranormal novel; in fact the whole Shades series is like that. It may contain shifters, witches and vampires but there is a human element in these characters that hold us captive and make them seem real.”
“Another thoroughly enjoyable book in the series that continues on my list of must reads!”
-L.K. Shaw, The Secrets Series
