San Francisco nightclub owner Carina Tranquilli works hard, plays hard, and never allows the death of her parents and her twelve-year memory gap to get her down. But her life takes a left turn when a witch attacks her on her twenty-fifth birthday.
Three hauntingly familiar vampires emerge to reveal she possesses a latent power. To protect her from their enemies, they admit to wiping her memories clean and abandoning her as a child, but now they need her help. As she struggles to evade her new protectors and even newer enemies, she meets Alexander, an enigmatic, undead musician. Insta-lust flares, leaving her wanting more.
With evil’s minions hounding her every move, and everything she thought she knew turned on its axis, Carina must harness her burgeoning power, unravel her vampire family’s web of deceit, and fight to have a love life... without getting killed in the process.

This book should come with a caution notice. It should read something like this: “Warning, don’t even think about reading this book unless your body can handle non-stop heart pounding, hand sweating, completely captivated reading for the duration.” This author is new to me, but it’s obvious she’s an old hand at writing. Ms. Breslin has perfected the balance between kick-butt action and romance. From the first page I was caught in “thrall” by her clever word choices and fast moving plot. I have read a lot of books where the author really seems to have polished the first five or six chapters. After that, the attention to detail, the ‘magic’, seems to fade. Not with this author. Ms. Breslin must have agonized over every word choice, finding just the right and fresh way to convey Carina and Alexander’s story. I’m hoping the author is currently hunched over her keyboard, tapping out the next book in this great new series!
