When the mother that abandoned them years ago suddenly shows up and moves them to New Hampshire, Madison has no choice but to go or lose her family. Shoving her dreams aside yet again, she tries to make a life for her siblings only to discover that nothing is going the way that it should. It's really cold. Her fifteen year old sister acts like a hooker in training. Men act funny around her. Her boss is a real jerk. She feels like an outsider. Her best friend turns out to be a mouthy sixteen year old kid and the incredibly handsome guy renting the room adjoining hers not only hogs the bathroom, taking three showers a day and leaving her with cold water, but he also has a secret. A secret that she becomes a bit obsessed with and can't let go no matter how many times she's warned off.
Detective Ephraim Williams learned long ago not to show any emotion or allow himself to get attached to humans. What was the point? They came and went and he remained. This time wouldn't be any different or so he thought. When his landlady told him that her grandchildren were moving in he didn't expect much, well other than to be left alone. What he didn't expect was to have to fight bloodlust every time he so much as caught the scent of his delectable neighbor's blood or her bombarding him with questions every time she cornered him. If that's not bad enough, a Master from his past has found him once again and is demanding his blood and is willing to do anything to get it, even using the beautiful, irritating, neighbor that makes him feel more than pain for the first time in centuries to get it.

I want my own tall dark and lonely! I am sure buying the rest of the series!
Sooo many typos
I don’t know who approved the editing on this, but please, if this is the best you think is out there keep looking! It was painful to read. I kept at it, hoping... but no. I liked the story line- the idea was unique and I kept waiting for the language and editing to get better but it never did. A decent plot is not all there is; if you are constantly distracted by bad articulation I feel you and please give this a pass. Maybe the author can have the works re-evaluated/ re-edited? It sad that this has gotten such high reviews the way it stands now.
Too many typos
Sooo many typos. It was a great story and well written but there were so many typos at times I couldn’t even figure out what the author was trying to say. The author also needs to learn how to write 10 yo boys, Joshua sounded like he was 3-4 yo which was really odd. I loved the relationship between Madison and Ephraim though.
