Abigail herself is met with some danger when she is attacked by a serial rapist/murderer but is rescued by a tall, dark and mysterious man and returned to her hotel room unharmed but missing most of her memory of the attack and the events that followed. However, with help from the other side, she soon comes to understand why.
Her rescuer was none other than the wealthy, attractive, seductive and centuries old vampire by the name of Vincent Adcock. Vincent and his group of fellow vampires have been ridding the south of criminal predators in their own way for many years as a means to feed as well as a means to seek solace from what they are.
Knowing the danger of entering the vampire's lair, Abigail follows him home from a club one night and puts herself at his and his colleagues' mercy to ask for their help in locating and rescuing her sister. This comes with a price as she becomes a prisoner in his home.
The tale takes Abigail into a world of vampires, the supernatural, drugs, prostitution, and murder as the group searches for the errant teen. But will they be able to rescue Reilly before the psychotic cult leader uses her for his bizarre ritual in which he hopes to conquer mankind? Will Abigail be able to resist the sexual magnetism of Vincent or will she find herself caught up in an attraction that could result in losing her heart and soul to a creature that is doomed to walk the earth for all of eternity?

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the first in the Vengeance trilogy. Abigail Cooper has been blessed (or cursed, depending on
how you see it), with abilities that enable her to communicate with spirits, as well as learn a person's history through touch.
Abigail is not one of those heroines who doesn't believe in her abilities or is ashamed of them, she knows that she can use
them to help find her missing sister. Vincent Adcock, former southern aristocrat-turned-leader of the vampire vigilante justice league
agrees to help Abigail find her sister (much to the dismay of Chantel, another vampire who is adamantly opposed to helping Abigail).
Somewhere along the way in their search, they both develop feelings for each other (and let me say this now: the sex scenes are
pretty damn hot! Well, as hot as can be when you're getting it in with a vampire).
While Abigail knows what the Vampire Vigilante Justice League when they go "hunting", she doesn't actually approve, but she really
can't find fault with it. But can you really fault the V.V.J.L. for the prey they hunt for? Yeah, me neither. The ending could be viewed as
predictable, but it's really not. My only issue is that with all of the buildup to the climatic scene, it kinda fizzled. While I know what Abigail
wanted, I can also understand Vincent's reason for not doing it. I actually felt bad for him, and I can't wait to read the next book to
find out what happens next. I would definitely recommend this book.
