The exceptionally entertaining Ione kicks off a sexy new vampire series that explores their struggle for survival and independence. In this world, humans have kept vampires as slaves, but times are changing and vampires are rebelling — with violent consequences. Ione does what she does best: deliver paranormal romance with a sexy and dangerous bite!

As a child, Dr. Nicole Martin loved her vampire nanny, Terese, but during an uprising, much of Nicole’s family and Terese were killed. Nicole now works at the Daedelus corporation, hoping to find a vaccine against vampirism — and possibly wipe out vampires completely. Riker of the Moonbound clan is haunted by the death of his mate Terese. When a visiting vampire from another clan is kidnapped by Daedelus, Riker knows they must rescue their guest or his clan will be slaughtered. Discovering Nicole while breaking into the compound proves fortuitous, since she is an ideal hostage. But Riker doesn’t count on being attracted to a mortal enemy. (POCKET, Oct., 400 pp., $7.99)
