Backordered or Out of Print


A fun, action-packed "Vamps and the City" type romance with:

  • A second chance at first love
  • A tender-hearted vampire who cares about dogs, cats & people
  • A cop who can't stop dreaming about a woman he's sure he's never met

The last person Olivia expected to turn up at her nightclub was her one true love. It would normally be great to see him, except he's been dead for centuries. Olivia really thought she had moved on with her immortal life, but as soon as she sees Doug Paxton, she knows she'd rather die than lose him again. And that's a real problem…

Doug is a no-nonsense cop by day, but his nights are tormented by dark dreams of a gorgeous redhead who's so much a part of him, she seems to be in his blood. When he meets Olivia face-to-face in the heart of the city of the dead, long-buried memories begin to surface. She might be the answer to his prayers…or she might be the death of him.
