When old ghosts threaten his life, only new love can save him.
Malek has never dealt with the death of his first mate, but now that he's formed a new mating link to Gina, he has no choice. Stuck between the agony of mourning his deceased mate and the despair of being without Gina, his mind fractures. He knows deep in his soul that without Gina, he’ll eventually succumb to his suffering and die, but accepting her feels like betrayal.
Gina doesn't have time for love. The last thing she wants is a mate, but she can't stop thinking about Malek, the handsome AKM enforcer she left in Chicago. She's beginning to fear he’s the reason for her crippling panic attacks, which have assaulted her ever since she left the city and affected every facet of her life.
After Gina botches a hit on two vampire traitors, she reluctantly returns to Chicago to face Malek and get him out of her system. But once they see each other again, it becomes painfully clear neither will be able to disregard the other without powerful repercussions.
As the traitors close in, seeking revenge, Malek will have to choose between the past and the future before he loses Gina forever.
