About the book: He knew when he met her how it would end.
Book one begins in current times with Shade, a warrior king who is the sole male heir to the dynasty and is expected to mate and produce an heir to secure the continuation of the coven. He has waited over 700 years for the right mate when he falls in love with Kate Reese, a mortal girl. Kate is fresh off a broken engagement and reluctant to open her heart to this stranger. His pursuit is unrelenting, and her curiosity gets the best of her as she lets down her guard, letting him into her life. Their passion for each other is searing, and he ignores the anger of the ruling Council when he pursues a mortal as his future mate.
Shade is a complex character, who struggles to control his darker impulses as a vampire, and chooses instead to embrace his more human emotions. He must draw Kate into his world, and prepare her for all the changes that will be demanded of her should she choose to bind herself to him through the blood covenant. Their path is filled with personal conflict, as well as with deceit, as others try hard to destroy their union, and Kate sorts through her discovery of the vampire sub-culture, learning what is fact and what is myth. She can have everything she ever wanted, but it comes at a price.
