BranI’m a dhampir—half vampire, half human. And I'm cursed.
My thirtieth birthday is only days away and if I don’t find my soulmate I will die.
To top it off, if I claim the wrong woman, we’ll both turn into vampires.
But when I rescue Jade from a vampire den, my body reacts to her like it never has to a woman.
I can’t stop myself. I have to have her.
But can I risk both our lives to find out if she's the one?
“Well, well, what do we have here? A hero in the making?” He raises his long nose and does a long inhale, his eyes narrowing in on me. “Actually, what we have is something extra special, everyone. I haven’t smelled that reckless scent for hundreds of years.”
Jade bucks in his arm, and I take a step closer.
“Stay there…” His eyes drop to the badge clipped on my jeans waistband. “Officer.”
“Let her go.”
He inhales her hair and my fangs start to rock in my mouth, wanting to descend.
“Your daddy was a very bad man, wasn’t he? But I bet your momma was really good. Like this little lady. She’ll taste mighty fine.”
I hear chuckling behind me, but my vision tunnels in on Jade. Her eyes the color of her name, and I can’t see anything but how her chest gasps for air. I force myself to return to the man holding her. Every molecule of my body prickles almost painfully. He has something that is mine and my body twitches to let him know that fact.
I know what he is because I’m half of his kind.
Someone behind me lets out a long hiss. “Don’t do it, Caine. Luther’s not here, he’ll be pissed.”
The man widens his mouth with a broad smile and the light sparkles off of the white extensions lowering from his upper teeth, fangs dropping like long razor blades.
My senses count five people in the dim-lit room and I hear another two sets of steps on the stairs coming down from the second floor. Seven people isn’t undoable. I mean, I’ve never done it, but I’m thinking right now I’d do anything to make sure this woman is safe.
My heart beats her name. Jade. Jade. Jade. Faster and faster until I feel like a nuclear reactor is on red-alert warning inside of my body.
Her face turns red as she beats on his arm, but in the next second, her eyes roll back in her head, and her body goes lifeless.
His mouth lowers to her neck.
That’s not happening.
He snarls a grin. “I know this one’s gonna be tasty, ladies and gents. Virgin blood straight from the spigot is the best.”
I fire my gun and I watch as she crumples in slow motion toward the floor. At the last second, I scoop her into my arms, kicking my way through the front door, and I’m back at the car in the next.
Maybe this is my chance…
To find my soulmate and end my curse.
