In the coastal hideaway of Clare Point, Delaware--home for centuries to the Kahill vampire clan--a vampire sworn to protection will make the ultimate choice. . .
After months spent eliminating some of the world's most ruthless criminals, Aedan Brigid is on sabbatical in Clare Point. Instead of relief, he feels on edge. Part of it is due to Dallas York, the gorgeous blonde bar owner whose touch just sparked an intense, inexplicable connection. But there's another reason too.
Centuries ago, Aedan lost his beloved to a depraved monster nicknamed Jay. Now Jay is back, more vicious than ever. Aedan is already breaking clan rules by getting involved with Dallas--even if her mysterious gift sets her apart from other humans. And soon, he'll have to decide whether he'll turn away from the only life he's known to protect a love he thought he'd never feel again. . .
History repeats itself for a vampire PI on the hunt for a supernatural rapist and torturer in the captivating final installment of Forrest's Clare Point saga (after Immortal). Aedan Brigid is one of the Kahills, a family of vampires sworn to protect humans from two-legged predators. For years, he has been on the trail of Jay, a serial rapist who appears every 50 years; now Jay has appeared on Aedan's home turf. Jay murdered the human woman Aedan loved, so Aedan keeps women at bay until Dallas York walks into his life. But by acting on his attraction to her, Aedan may be putting her in grave danger. Forrest uses just the right amount of suspense to heighten tension without undermining the growing romance. The secondary characters shine, and Dallas's autistic daughter, Kenzie, is fascinatingly drawn. Though this purports to be a series conclusion, Forrest has left the door open for more stories and the hope that the Kahills will one day find redemption.
