Phoebe Stewart only agreed to marry Trevor Ricci to secure peace between their warring vampire clans. When her groom poisons her during the wedding ceremony, and her life expectancy falls from forever to a week, “till death do you part” takes on a whole new meaning.
Especially now she’s met Hunter Knox, the bad boy alpha vampire she’s been waiting for her whole death.
Agent Hunter Knox works for the National Vampire Security Council. When a poison that can actually kill their species surfaces, he’s dead set on finding and destroying it. But once he meets Phoebe, and realizes she only has days to live, the need for an antidote takes priority.
And the more he gets to know her, the more he suspects she may be as important to vampire kind as she’s becoming to him.
Private detective and gifted witch Zaira O’Shea has built her reputation on her ability to always find her relic, magical device, or man. When the Witches’ Council hires her to find and return a stolen wand, she’s eager to recover the device. Until the clues lead her to a vampire with talents that don’t require a bite to lead her into temptation.
History professor and vampire Christophe Bakas has brushed off his cat burglar skills to steal a powerful wand for the Vampire Council, but only because they are holding his uncle hostage. When he meets Zaira, he hopes he’s found someone who’ll help with the rescue.
Chris and Zaira are convinced the wand is too dangerous to be given to either council and only the Baga Yaga can be trusted with it, but first they must find her.
