Trinity was once a fragile girl. Being taken by a powerful vampire prince changed her. Discovering him in the arms of another woman changed destiny. Alone, she’s learned fast how to be tough, how to survive, and how to protect the people in her city from the evil that lurks in the dark. She was managing just fine, until Basil walked back into her life.

Basil Hawthorn has been the reigning prince of vampires since banishing his father to the Realm of Dark Mystics decades earlier. When a prophetic dream makes him realize Trinity’s life is at risk, he decides the only way to save her is to push her away. Doing so is not easy. Trinity is the only woman he has ever loved, ever will love, and he can’t seem to let her go. 

When rumors arise of a plan to raise the King and blot out the sun, both Trinity and Basil know they must do everything to stop it. Even if it means working together. Despite the betrayal and the threat, they find themselves drawn to each other. Love has no boundaries, especially in the face of danger. But will they be able to stop the ritual before it’s too late?

Or will the darkness capture them both?


The sound of muffled screams drew her attention. Tuning her ear in the direction it came, she sped off on a dead run, heading toward the scream. In the distance, she spotted two vampires in a dark alley, one holding the screaming woman by the arms, while the other tried frantically to grab hold of her legs. There was tape over her mouth, yet she did her best to draw attention to herself by screaming as loud as her muffled mouth would allow.

“It’s really sad, you know,” she said as she came to a stop only 36 feet from the vampires, “that the two of you have to resort to gagging and tying up a girl just to get laid when they have an invention called the blow-up doll.” The vampire who held the girl’s arms narrowed his eyes at her while his partner’s head spun to face her. They were aware of who she was.

 “Fuck off, Trinity.”

“Oh, Moose, now you’ve gone and hurt my feelings.” She did a quick spin, lifting her left leg up and round house kicked him right in the jaw. The snap of bone echoed in the still night air and then the thud of his body as he hit the ground. “See what happens when you hurt my feelings.”

He rubbed his jaw, only slightly fazed, and stood. “This is me not giving a shit.”

He lunged at her, his fists ready, his body primed for a fight. She was prepared and dodged the blow. Spinning, she caught him in the kidneys with her elbow and took great pleasure in the high-pitched squeal that came out of his mouth. Moose was huge, hence the reason for his name, but when he was injured, he squealed like a girl. “Let the girl go, Zane,” she warned the other vamp.

“Fuck you I will.” He held the woman tighter, backing away slowly.

From over her shoulder she saw Moose get to his feet and the expression on his face was enough to scare death himself. Good thing she didn’t scare easily. But then the girl in Zane’s grip started crying, and Trinity looked over to make sure she was okay. She heard the step only seconds before Moose’s body rammed into hers. She tumbled to the ground, heavy Moose on top of her, her face scraping on the pavement.

“Damn it, no marring the face.” She flipped, or tried to at least, but Moose outweighed her by several hundred pounds.

“What’s the matter, little girl? Can’t move?” Laughing, he leaned down even closer to her ear, and licked her neck.

“Aw, Jesus, Moose, that’s disgusting.” Then she smashed her head into his nose and once again he let out a loud girly squeal. She jumped up, ready for the next blow when she felt the sharp sting in her left arm. Turning, she had a moment to see the shadowed face behind her before everything went blurry.
