AT THE CROSSROADS OF DEATH AND DESIRE, A WOMAN TASTES A PLEASURE NO
MORTAL IS MEANT TO SURVIVE.
In the frozen Alaskan wilderness, former state trooper Jenna Darrow
survives an unspeakable breach of body and soul. But with her
narrow escape comes an even greater challenge. For strange changes
are taking place within her, as she struggles to understand-and
control-a new hunger. To do so, she will seek shelter in the Boston
compound of the Order, an ancient race of vampire warriors whose
very existence is shrouded in mystery. Perhaps the most mysterious
of them all is Brock, a brooding, dark-eyed alpha male whose hands
hold the power to comfort, heal . . . and arouse.
As she recovers under Brock's care, Jenna finds herself drawn to
the Order's mission: to stop a ruthless enemy and its army of
assassins from subjecting Earth to a reign of terror. Yet in spite
of their resolve, a purely physical relationship without strings
soon binds Brock and Jenna together with a desire fiercer than life
and stronger than death itself-until a secret from Brock's past and
Jenna's own mortality challenges their forbidden love to the
ultimate trial by fire.
