Readers enthralled by Catching Midnight will be wholly captivated as the powerful shapeshifter, Ulric, meets a mortal woman who is as passionate and daring as he is.
Running from an arranged marriage, Juliana Batoc is drawn by Ulric's beautiful voice. To his surprise, Ulric finds her innocence desirable and agrees to help her.
The strong, sensual pull between them erupts into a blazing passion and only grows hotter as Juliana discovers Ulric's secrets. Though she begs him to make her an upyr (vampire), he holds off, wanting to introduce her to his pack and help her to realize what it means to be part of their world.
However, in the caves of Scotland, Ulric uncovers a new menace to the pack; a stranger brought into the fold encourages strife among them, allowing treachery and betrayal to wreak havoc with Ulric's and Juliana's lives.
To fully understand the mythology of Holly's upyrs, it's worth reading Catching Midnight first. As steamy and erotic as the first, this new story lures you into a fascinating and frightening world that's not for the faint of heart. But the more adventurous reader will thrill to its delights.
