Desiree is a nurse at the childrenís hospital. Being a work-a-holic, Desiree has no desire to hit the clubs after a grueling twelve-hour shift but after being persuaded by her best friend, she caves. Dressed in cowboy boots, tight Wranglers, and a cowboy hat, Caleb is the man of Desireeís dreams. Heís handsome, gentlemanly, and sexy as hell. And has a killer secret. Heís a vampire. Bodies turn up in the streets, drained of blood and missing hearts. The most intriguing part, carved on their foreheads is the Xavier symbol. A symbol Caleb has not seen in five hundred years. When he learns that Drake Xavier has escaped purgatory, he fears for Desireeís safety. In his six hundred years on this earth, heís never feared death. Now the fear of death grips his heart like a vise. Desiree is the only woman he has ever loved. The only woman he wants to spend an eternity with.
