A dark and gritty London is the scene of nonstop action and conflict in this story of man-made vampires. Sometimes violent, sometimes tender and always hard to put down, this book belongs on the keeper shelf. The evolution of the heroine is gripping as she struggles with where her loyalties lie. Helios is a dark predator who aches for love. Sexual tension between them sizzles and leads to passionate and graphic love scenes. Gray's emotionally charged tale will give readers a feeling of being there.

Man created them to be slaves -- perfect vampires who are beautiful and disposable. But Helios, first born of the subspecies, is also the first to rebel against his creators. He's become hardened and dangerous from long years of abuse at the hands of humans.

Dawn Eindhoven, aka Hell's Bitch, is the assistant CEO of Hemosynthec, the firm that manufactures v-serum. This neutralizer is the key to freedom for Helios and his kind. He's determined to make Dawn help him -- and then kill her. But Dawn awakens something in him, a vulnerability that could ruin his mission. (ELLORASCAVE.COM, dl $5.95)
