Olivia thought her one true love was dead--until he shows up at her popular Greenwich Village vampire club to investigate a murder. They'd been separated for centuries, but when she sees Doug again, Olivia's heart knows she'd rather die than lose him again.
The last person Olivia expected to turn up at her club was her one true love. It would normally be great to see him, except he's been dead for centuries. Olivia really thought she had moved on with her immortal life, but as soon as she sees Doug Paxton, she knows she'd rather die than lose him again. And that's a real problem...
Doug is a no-nonsense cop by day, but his nights are tormented by dreams of a gorgeous redhead who's so much a part of him, she seems to be in his blood. When he meets Olivia face-to-face, long-buried memories begin to surface. She might be the answer to his prayers...or she might be the dead of him.

In this engaging spin-off from the Amoveo shapeshifter series (Undone, etc.), Humphreys explores the vampiric side of her world. Club owner Olivia Hollingsworth has multiple problems landing all at once: her irritating vampire “creator,” Vincent, has come to visit for the first time in many years; someone’s killing off her patrons; and the cop investigating the murders, Doug Paxton, just happens to be her reincarnated lover, back from the dead after three centuries. As Olivia struggles with her rekindled feelings for Doug—who’s astonished to learn that the hot babe he sees in his dreams is a real person—she also tries to track down the rogue vampire whose bloodsucking indiscretions are jeopardizing everyone’s safety. Naturally, nothing goes as expected. Humphreys skillfully blends intrigue and romance, her characters possessing undeniable chemistry on the streets and in bed. Much of the world-building has a familiar ring, but Humphreys makes up for it with some intriguing tweaks to the mythology, a solid storyline, and a satisfying relationship.
