When newspaper columnist Monroe Donovan receives an obituary listing a future date as the date of death, she blows it off as an error. But after a second one comes in, she senses something more is at play. Her suspicions are confirmed when a victim sharing the name of the ‘deceased’ is found murdered—on the predicted date.
Detective Lane Brody sees Monroe as a suspect, accusing her of hiding a connection to the latest victim, while Monroe can't deny the attraction between herself and the unhappily married Detective.
In her quest for the truth, Monroe stumbles into the clutches of the killer, and she can only hope Detective Brody stops suspecting her and starts looking for her—before her name is the next to appear in the obits.
Liberty Delacort doesn't believe in Vampires. Then she meets the father she never knew, just before his death, and learns she's the last of the Van Helsing bloodline.
Eli, a 300 year old Vampire, doesn't believe Liberty has what it takes to stand between the humans and the Evil Ones on Sang Croc Island, and orders her back to the mainland.
Ryan, a friend of Liberty's late-father, disagrees and insists that Eli provide the promised training.
Now the Full Moon has come and Liberty must stand in the gap. But unbeknownst to her--she's fallen for the wrong vampire.
