With her murderous maker still on the run, Cherry has enough on her mind even before her newly turned boyfriend, Alex, demands they meet each other's parents. Constantine, her ex and now member of the vampire council, is suspiciously quick to allow this breach of vampire law. It soon becomes clear there's a lot Cherry doesn't know about her family's past.
And it's threatening her present and her future.
Alex is changing, Ádísa is dead but not as gone as she should be, and feelings forced aside are reconsidered. Back in her hometown, and faced with an overabundance of new information, Cherry is determined to fight for herself, her family, and her man.
Dean's living every writer's dream. His first book made all best-selling lists and got him a nice little house in an idyllic town, where he can focus on his writing.
Of course, it would be easier to focus if he could think of something other than the gorgeous Charlie. If he can just ask her out on a date, his life and writing will regain meaning. The thing is he made a fool of himself first time they met, and hasn't stopped since.
He's going to give it one last shot. If this doesn't work, he'll accept defeat. But he's going down with a bang.
Eliza is out with a dreamy guy, when the lights go out and someone other than her date takes advantage of the dark to kiss her more passionately than she’s ever been kissed before. It could be any of the men at the nearby tables—except for her horrible ex and his buddy, also known as the bane of her existence.
Nate is screwed. He approached the woman of his dreams with kindergarten tactics, and he isn't surprised they backfired. Kissing her during the blackout was supposed to help him get over her, but it made him want her more. Too bad she hates his guts.
Now Eliza is determined to find her prince, and Nate has to find a way to fix things or sit back and watch her kiss a few frogs.
