Roseline is left with questions that refuse answers and only the memory of a man she vows to hunt and kill. But to do so, she must call a truce with her sworn enemy. Together Roseline and Nicolae track Fane to the underbelly of London in search of Gabriel's kidnappers. Yet when Malachi - an Immortal with mystifying origin - presents himself as their guide, Roseline discovers she is not the only one looking for Gabriel.
Roseline Enescue didn't ask to become an immortal, to have all of the guests at her wedding slaughtered, or to be forced into marriage with a man whose lust for blood would one day ignite the vampire legend. Willing to risk everything for a chance at a normal life, Roseline escapes to America. But her transition into the human world isn't easy. Mortal men flock after her while cutthroat girls plot her demise. Yet she remains relatively unfazed until she meets Gabriel Marston.
Roseline Enescue has always been a warrior, the fiercest of her kind, but when she is stripped of her strength and left teetering on the edge of insanity, she is forced to rely on the one person she trusts the least. As Fane and Nicolae fight to save Sadie's life, they find themselves pulled into a tremulous truce between hunter and immortal when a string of gruesome murders break out. The lines have been drawn, and the battle preparations have begun, but only Gabriel can save them all....
"It's the present tense"
In a single night, everyone Roseline Dragomir has ever loved is slaughtered before her eyes. Alone in the world and bound by a solemn marriage vow to a vicious murderer, she must find a strength buried deep within her to keep going or risk completely losing herself.
