Nicole Martin was only eight years old when the vampire slaves rose up in rebellion and killed her family. Now she devotes her life to finding a vaccine against vampirism, hoping to wipe out her memories--along with every bloodsucker on the planet. But there's one thing she cannot destroy: her searing, undeniable attraction for the one man she should hate and fear the most . . . A VAMPIRE OUT FOR REVENGE
A member of the renegade vampire MoonBound Clan, Riker is haunted by demons of his own. When he recognizes Nicole and remembers how her family enslaved his loved ones, his heart burns for vengeance. But when he kidnaps Nicole and holds her in a secret lair, his mortal enemy becomes his soul obsession, his greatest temptation, and, perhaps, his only salvation--a hot-blooded lover who could heal him with her touch . . . or bury him forever.

Nicole Martin, CEO of the anti-vampire Daedalus Corporation, is kidnapped by wild vampires intent on securing her help—one way or another—in rescuing one of their own from the clutches of the company she’s only just begun to run. When she’s brought to the vampires’ secret compound, where her family name is reviled and nearly everyone wishes her dead, she thinks her worst nightmare has come true. But aside from one escape attempt, Nicole falls quickly into cooperating with the vampires, even to the point of saving a vampire’s life rather than abandoning him and escaping. From there, her emotional connection to one of her captors develops at a lightning-fast pace, with the erotic connection coming out of left field. The frantic action fails to move the plot, and the hot supernatural sex does nothing to make the romance feel less artificial or forced. Agent: Kimberly Whalen, Trident Media Group. (Oct.)
