"If you've been waiting for the next Black Dagger Brotherhood, this is it…" -GraveTells
After an immortal life that’s seen more agony than joy, Micah wants his endless suffering to be over. So he seeks out a ruthless enemy who’s more than happy to end his life, only for his death wish to be thwarted by a beautiful, gun-toting stranger.
Samantha is hiding from her abusive ex-husband, dancing for men’s favor—and their money—in a swanky gentleman’s club in order to pay the bills. While leaving her nightly shift, she stumbles upon a group of thugs beating a helpless man to death. Bravely charging into the fray, guns blazing, she's determined to save the handsome stranger, only to discover later that he’s no ordinary man and that her heroics have thrust her into a dangerous, paranormal world.
In Sam, Micah finds a reason to live, but now that she’s put a target on her back, he’ll have to go to extreme measures to protect her, even if it means defying his king. But with her obsessive ex-husband closing in and an enemy who will stop at nothing to exact revenge, are the odds stacked too heavily against Micah? Or will finding something worth fighting for be enough to give him the advantage?

NOTE: While this book and the majority of the series revolves around heterosexual relationships, there will be homosexual relationships explored in this book and this series. The author believes that love is love, and that love comes in all flavors and orientations, especially in the world of vampires. If this isn't your belief or your cup of tea, no harm no foul, but this isn't the series for you. I would rather you not buy the books than risk getting a bad review because you didn't like this particular flavor of sauce. But maybe you can try one of my other series, such as Strong Karma or Banger, which are exclusively heterosexual. Thank you.
