Liana Linacre thought she was in love, but what began as her fantasy romance ended with a curse that threatens her life and everything she loves. Orphaned and alone, she barely escapes the dark forces that want her soul,
Corban Alexander belongs to an ancient order of vampire hunters and wants to kill everyone who is demon-touched. He knows that the creatures who want Liana dead will find her again before long.
Liana must fight if she wants to live, while Corban must decide if he can love a girl who made the one mistake he believes is unforgivable.
No one, mortal or immortal, has ever won against the evil that plagues Liana, but if she and Corban can work together, they might just defy the laws of the universe.
“This is not your typical vampire novel. For one thing, no sparklies! For another, it has both lots of humor and moral seriousness at the same time. The characters are very human––even when they’re not––and real, high stakes are combined with exploding prairie-dog colonies. The scenes in Taos have vivid New Mexican local color, including the complex historical tapestry of my home state. Heartily recommended!”
