Overview

At sixteen, Rose Carrison lost both her parents and her freedom. Since her father's death, Rose has had to pick up the mantle of her family's legacy and guard an object of incredible power, one the monsters who murdered her parents would kill to get their hands on.

After ten years on the run, Rose's luck finally runs out. A fate worse than death threatens to consume her. Then, out of the darkness, comes the most unlikely of rescuers...

Grayson van Court is a man skating on the edge of damnation. He's a revenant: a powerful, blood-drinking, returned-from-the-dead, magical creature that no other magical species wants anything to do with. For centuries, Gray has bargained and fought for the revenants' right to survive, but his efforts are hampered by his sociopathic mother and the madness that permeates his own soul. When Gray rescues Rose from his mother's machinations, his intention is only to stop the attacks against his people that would surely come if Rose were harmed. But then he sees her, and everything changes. Two people who should never have met soon find themselves fighting side by side for the chance at a love that could prove to be their salvation.

Meet the Author

I am a native Californian who has spent the years since graduating high school bouncing around the world at every opportunity. I am a graduate of Vassar College where-despite often being distracted by British Literature-I received my Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. I'm an avid reader who spends much of my time engrossed in romance novels...when I'm not being shanghaied by the loud, demanding, often-crazy characters that live in my head. Right now you can find me in Northern California, but who knows where I'll be next? So long as I have my laptop and most discerning critic with me, I'm ready to travel and write from wherever the wind may take me.

Enough about me-I'd love to hear from readers. You can find me on the Web at www.RileyShane.com

I can't believe this book has no ratings yet-- I was very pleasantly surprised by this offering from a newbie author. I'm SUPER picky about my romances, and I don't generally like paranormals but Ms. Shane somehow manages to overcome my prejudice by creating a compelling relationship between a brave heroine and a strong, sexy hero. Rose and Gray are a perfect fit, and though the plot is filled with plenty of action and drama, Shane doesn't neglect the growing relationship between her two leads. I blew through the story and was surprised--and sorry--to see it end. Given the extensive and detailed world the author builds, the first couple of chapters are less action-packed than the rest of the plot, but once the plot gets rolling, well...there's a reason I stayed up until 4 am to finish it. I'm really hoping to see a sequel to this one; I can't imagine the author meant to leave this as a stand-alone. I'm DYING to know what happened between Rihannon and Cael!
