Captured as a youngling, he’s wasted away in an impenetrable dungeon for decades. His home is a dank cell and titanium chains are his only companions. He's been tortured for years in the name of science. They’ve stripped everything from him including his name but he remembers who he is, and it's not a weak human. When the Director throws a woman at his feet, he doesn’t care if she bleeds to death. The scientists have tried everything to get him to spill the Kan Asma’s secrets to longevity and he’s always fought them. Until he tastes her sweet blood and she touches him with kindness, shattering his resistance. This woman broke through the horrors of his existence and makes him feel alive. When she promises to save him, he must decide if he can trust her. No matter what, he can’t fall in love with her. To protect her he must produce the mating serum or they will both die. His death is inevitable but he must save her or it will destroy him.
She thought she’d been hired to find a cure for ravaging diseases but Mariyah’s job as a microbiologist took a deadly turn. When her own blood shows promising results, she ends up becoming the Lifespan Institute’s key to the Fountain of Youth. Within minutes, she’s terrorized and left bleeding out on the cell floor of a mysterious prisoner who has fangs. Before he can take her life, she ends up begging that he spare her, even though he is the embodiment of all her worst nightmares. She doesn’t want to die. What she isn’t prepared for is falling for a tortured, broken vampire. Now, she will do anything to help him escape.
To save his life, Mariyah turns to the only people who have the power and knowledge to help, the Kan Asma refugees now living in West Hollywood. She plays a dangerous game of double agent as an ally to these powerful vampires. Time is running out and she is desperate to help the prisoner escape before the Director executes him. A plot is set and the pieces are put in place. She must risk her life to save him from certain death and get him away from that hellish prison. If she’s captured, the Kan Asma could lose everything they fought so hard to protect in their new world. Even worse, if she lost him, it would break her apart. Because, she has given him her heart and failing him is not an option. He deserves to be free. To live, to laugh and to love. She is willing to do anything, even sacrifice herself, to set him free.
