Raven Prince, a vampire, and Thorne Abbott, her human lover, have endured secrets, lies and even murder. The only task remaining is for Thorne to become a vampire as well. Eternity never looked so good.
Haunted by the shame of deserting his first true love, Jason Craft, became a hunter of his own kind. Brought together on a mission of revenge, he found sanctuary in the arms of Jazmine Fabré and together they uncovered a startling truth.
Jason, now an enemy of the Vampire Lord for whom he’d been employed, sets out to save the coven he’s been commissioned to eradicate, which leads straight to the woman he left behind thirty years before, Raven Prince. 
Will fate lead them to where they were meant to be? Or will evil forces destroy them all?
Sometimes the only way to get something right is to go back to where it all went wrong.


EXCERPT:

The second they reached the staircase, Thorne pushed her against the wall and kissed her. Photo frames along the wall, rattled from the force of her body. He gripped the back of her head and twisted her hair in his hand, pressing his mouth against hers, harder.

After a few heated seconds, Raven pulled away, panting feverishly. "What was that all about?"
"You're sexy as hell when you're angry." He kissed her again.
Raven giggled and Thorne relaxed, knowing he'd successfully tamed a wild vampire. 
"You're a tricky one," she chimed as she led him up the stairs by his shirt collar.
As they entered the safety zone of their room, Thorne grabbed her around the waist and pulled her to him, her back pressed against his chest. "We have to fight that nasty urge to mark our territory, Raven," he whispered in her ear.
She slowly turned around and faced him. "Like the way you resisted marking your territory by latching onto my belt loop downstairs?" A lively grin played across her lips. 
Exciting tingles of electricity skittered down his back. 
"That's different."
"Oh?"
"Yes." He scooped her up and carried her to the bed then plopped her onto the mattress. "Because everyone already knows…" He slowly ran his finger from the satiny skin of her neck down between her breasts and stopped just above her navel. His gaze trailed along the path of his finger, and then his attention snapped back to her eyes. "All of this is mine."
Raven studied his eyes, back and forth, as a comfortable silence settled over the room.
"I love you." Her voice caught at the end, and then she swallowed hard.
Thorne's heart raced as her eyes began to glisten. He never meant to make her cry. "I'm sorry." He drew her to him and held her tight.
"It's not that. It's just that I love you so much and the thought of losing you because of this unexpected danger scares the hell out of me."
He cupped her chin with his left hand and raked his fingers through the length of her silky hair, peering deep into her eyes. "All the more reason for you to change me."
Raven looked away.
Thorne tightened his grip on her hair. "Taste me, Raven." A profound shiver ricocheted throughout his body just at the thought. "One taste and you won't be able to stop yourself. You'll bite me and it will all be over."
Raven shook her head.
"You know how bad you've always wanted to taste my blood on your tongue."
"Stop." She tried to pull away, but he held firm.
"The warm, sweet taste of my essence flowing through your body." Thorne leaned down and pressed his cheek to hers, positioning his lips millimeters from her ear. "Our life together will begin and you'll never have to worry about my safety again."
Raven flattened her palms against his chest and nudged him back, shaking her head. "It's too late. You're already in danger. If I bite you now, you'll be even more vulnerable while you're phasing."
Thorne release her and bowed his head. She was right. They were leaving as soon as the sun set. The risk was too great. "You're right."
"I'm sorry. I know how bad you want this and even though I go back and forth about it, I really do want it, too."
Thorne took a deep breath and exhaled slowly. It was settled. "I know you do. And I'll try not to seduce you into biting me." He offered a short laugh.
Raven slinked back toward him, her gaze narrowed, unleashing a thrilling flutter in his stomach. He loved it when she played dirty.
"Don't get too carried away," she cooed. "I can have us packed and ready to go in seconds, so we have plenty of time for seduction." Thorne lifted her off the ground and kissed her hard.
"You don't have to tell me twice."
