Welcome back to Popp's complex and dangerous world, where shades of gray predominate. Divided loyalties place the hero in an untenable position, while the feisty, reckless heroine is more than a match for him. Suspense and romance make a perfect duet!

Ancient vampire Prime Erik Winslow made a pact with other Prime vampires to not kill humans. Because they are not created by a chupacabra bite, it is the second generation vampires that become ravaging killers. Erik's own descendants are not immune to killings, and his castle is attacked, nearly orphaning young Kacie and Jess.

Now, two decades later, Kacie returns and kills a vampire, not knowing Sedrick was Erik's close friend. Erik is caught between his vows to protect Kacie and to avenge his friend. Complicating matters further is the attraction that flares between them. (FOREVER, Dec., 384 pp., $6.99)
