Thad, the King of Vampires, is looking for his prophesied mate who will unlock his powers. But when he meets carefree Isabel, he thinks fate must have gotten it seriously wrong.
Scorned by the vampire community for her lack of power, Isabel Anthony lives a carefree existence masquerading as human--although drifting through the debauched human nightlife, she prefers the patrons' blood to other indulgences. But when she meets the sexy, arrogant king of the vampires, this party-girl's life turns dark and dangerous.
Dead-set on finding the prophesied mate who will unlock his fiery powers, Thad Morgan must find his queen before their race is destroyed. Their enemies are gaining ground, and Thad needs his powers to unite his subjects. But when his search leads him to the defiant Isabel, he wonders if fate had gotten it seriously wrong...

Mismatched vampire lovers find romance and danger in the midst of a secret war against genocidal wizards in Staab’s debut. Newly anointed vampire king Thad Morgan is appalled to find his prophesied mate, Isabel Anthony, orphaned and estranged from her racial community and hiding among Orlando’s ravers and kinksters. Not thatIsabel has little desire to be a vampire queen, but her connection to Thad makes her a target for wizard assassins who gain power through blood sacrifice. Though the vampire society is somewhat shallowly depicted and its centuries-old denizens’ dialogue jarringly modern, Thad’s struggle to protect his remaining subjects and his awkward courtship of independent Isabel are engaging. A strong cast of supporting characters includes Thad’s powerful half-human sister, Tyra; Lee, his buddy and bodyguard; Isabel’s human friend Alexia; and Anton, estranged son of the wizard leader. They broaden the focus and provide intriguing teasers for further books in this promising new paranormal series. (Feb.)
