Vampire and full-time field agent for the CIA, Andreas’s only loyalty is his job with Department 57. Until he sets eyes on sexy Roz Templeton. He already hates his assignment to pose as the office wolf, but he hates it even more when he realizes Roz is also a vampire.

Roz is out to discover who killed two members of her family, and when she does, the culprit will die. Andreas is a distraction. And she can’t understand why she’s drawn to him, anyway--he’s a sleaze. But she can’t resist.

Drawn into a passion neither can fight, they set fire to the night, and then some. For a young vampire, Andreas is fully versed on how to keep a woman happy in bed, even one that is centuries older than he is, and as dominant and demanding as any man. From their first steamy
kiss in the elevator on the way to work, to bed and beyond, Andreas and Roz can’t get enough of each other.

But that passion may be a deadly distraction when Roz's life is on the line.

Publisher's Note: This book is a re-edited, revised book previously released by another publisher, and contains explicit sexual situations, graphic language, and material that some readers may find objectionable: anal play.


I was shocked and appalled that I could not even finish this book. Lynne Connolly is the reason I began reading this genre in the first place years ago.  This novel was confusing, hard to follow, kept referring back to other characters who had not been previously introduced in this story….all together just a mishmash of convoluted plot that was sadly disappointing.
