A Watcher who wants only to do his job, but when a woman steps off a bus and onto the city's streets, that job gets a little harder.
After suffering years of abuse as the virtual prisoner of a drug lord, Robyn Andrews has had enough. A carefully planned escape is her only hope for survival. Her past nipping at her heels, she boards the first bus out of town and heads for Louisville, Kentucky.
Trigg is a Watcher with two missions in life. One, to hunt and eliminate Rogue vampires. Two, to be left alone. Yet he can't bring himself to harden his heart against the petite woman who looks so lost standing in the rain. And when Robyn joins him in a battle against Rogues, the little spitfire shows the bravery of ten Watchers.
She's someone special, someone he needs in his dark life. Someone he can never have. He's vampire; she's human. A future for them is impossible. But the past has a way of
catching up and changing destinies with deadly speed.
