She was his destiny, his love, his life, he never expected her to walk away.
Having grown up in the seedier sections of Las Vegas, stripping to make ends meet, Cara Larsen knows when it's time to stay and time to beat a hasty retreat. When Tristan Manseletti, her longtime lover and the man responsible for removing her from her impoverished lifestyle and helping her find respect, starts dropping hints of marriage, she knows the time to return to her roots is now. Tristan is no ordinary man, and while she has learned to deal with his supernatural powers, the idea of reproducing with him scares her beyond reasoning. She already has one abnormal child to fend for in her little brother; she doesn't need or think her heart can handle another.
Tristan knows Cara is frightened by his powers, but also that she is his predestined soul mate and the only woman he will ever love, and he is determined to track her down. When he is called to Reno for what he believes is a business venture, he never dreams he will find Cara onstage stripping in a gentleman's club. Or that the woman he came to the city to meet will hold the power to make him question everything he believes in, about himself and his destiny with Cara.
Evil and good clash, with Tristan being the ultimate prize. Only he can realize paradise and his heart before he loses everything.
