Gideon Green has been a vampire hunter since the day he lost his fiancĂ©e years ago. Things also changed for him when his brother first became a servant to a vampire and then a vampire himself. Life changed to the extent that he started heading in a different direction when his brother became a vampire. Gideon has been on a path that will only lead to his death if he doesn’t change something in his life and very soon. It looks like things just might be about to make another turn when he first meets Anwyn.

Anwyn is an owner of a nightclub. She also has a silent partner that just happens to be a vampire. With her business connection and a more personal connection to Daegan things start to get complicated when she first sets eyes on Gideon. The feelings between her and Gideon are instant and very intense. All Anwyn is sure about is that she wants to save Gideon from self destruction.

Daegan Rei is a vampire with some secrets of his own. He is also different from most vampires Gideon has come across. Now it is looking like Daegan and Gideon are going to have to work together to help Anwyn to get through a very bad transition.

Gideon is learning things about himself that he never really saw. By working with Daegan to help Anwyn his is starting to see things in a very different light. Anwyn is opening his eyes to viewing vampires differently. Gideon has to decide if when Anwyn is done with her transition will he go back to the life he led or will he try to find a different life that just might include a vampire or two in his life, other than that just his brother. Only time will tell which way he will go.

This is an emotional book that draws you into Gideon’s life and emotions as he tries to find his way in life again. To see him try to find a reason to go on other than just hunting vampires. It is a very heart wrenching story as you watch Gideon struggle with his decisions and the way he does everything possible to help Anwyn and to work with Daegan when it comes to Anwyn. You won’t want to put this one down and will mourn when it comes to an end.

I give this one 5 red roses
