Kayci Pierce possesses strength, endurance, and accelerated healing that set her apart from normal humans—traits she’s never understood and kept hidden since childhood. She feels disconnected from the seemingly normal world around her—until she’s attacked by a creature she didn’t know exists and then rescued by a stranger she can’t forget. Dreams of the attractive, dangerous man haunt her and lead her into a world she was born for.
Adrian Spade spends most of his solitary nights hunting rogue vampires for the Covenant, until an undeniable attraction leads him to reveal his vampire identity and risk his life by saving Kayci’s. Tempted by her mysterious nature, Adrian finds himself drawn to Kayci and becomes her protector while she discovers her heritage and what it means to be a half-breed vampire sorceress.
Kayci’s relationship with Adrian brings her as much passion as it does danger. Now with a vampire revolution beginning and a romantic connection to a full-blood vampire, Kayci must work with Adrian to survive surrounding threats. As Kayci tries to make sense of an unfamiliar world, she’s forced to choose between the life she’s always known and her vampire birthright.
Adrian comes across a woman in distress, she is being attacked by a fledgling vampire. He rushes in to save her and to dispatch the rogue vampire. That’s his job, he’s a vampire hunter for the Covenant, keeping the vampire world secret from the humans.

There is an attraction between Adrian and Kayci that neither can ignore. He can’t seen to stay away and she doesn’t want him to. This connection leads Kayci to the truth of what she really is. Her adoptive parents were normal humans and knew nothing about her birth parents.
When Kayci becomes the target of an evil vampire, Adrian must protect her. A long way away, another feels her fear and rises to come to her aide. Kayci also has a witch helping her, giving her some protection against the vampires that want to harm her.
