Two and a half weeks. That’s all the time he has left.
When loner vampire hunter Kassy is interrupted by nosy veteran, Mike, he ends up bitten, and infected with the vampire parasite. The warrior becomes her prey as she fights to find him before powerful vamps. A couple kidnappings later, she’s hiding in a cabin with him chained to the floor, and an eight-year-old girl in her care.
Death? Inevitable. When the parasite takes control, he’ll do or say anything to get non-infected blood—including seducing her. But, as they spend time together, she finds her resolve weakening. A kiss won’t fix him, but it might mend a deep hole in her heart.
Kassy is too practical to believe in miracles, but if he survives eighteen days without ingesting human blood, there is a chance he could be the hero she's been looking for.
Odds are, he’s a dead man.
Kassy is a vampire hunter, Mike is a nosy hero who ends getting bitten and infected when interferes in a hunt and while Kassy is too practical to believe in miracles if Mike can survive without ingesting blood, there is a chance he could be hero she’s been looking for in this riveting urban fantasy.
This steady paced story keeps readers hovering on the edge of anticipation as Kassy holds out for a miracle. The author describes the story with well written scenes and details that capture the imagination and uses cleverly orchestrated suspense to draw the reader deeper into the story. The characters are strong, compelling, grab the reader’s attention right from the beginning ensuring that the reader wants to know more.
Kassy is a loner, she’s had to be considering what she does for a living, so kidnapping Mike and keeping him chained in a cabin long enough for him to either die or become the hero she needs means a lot of adjusting and as much as she tries to remain unattached she can’t help but be attracted to Mike. The reader can’t help but get caught up in the emotional turmoil that burns through Kassy as time spent in Mike’s company plays havoc with everything she’s been taught.
But handling Mike is not the only thing Kassy has to worry about there are the vampires that would love to have a Veteran on their side and of course they want to either recruit Kassy or kill her, which adds spice and excitement to the story and the author throws in some surprising twists to keeps the reader guessing. Overall the story arouses curiosity and has fascinating vampire elements although the story seemed a drag a little bit. I also should warn that while part of the story ends it doesn’t reach its complete conclusion.

About Sabrina Sumsion:
I’m a ninja disguised as a homeschooling mom, former literary publicist, craft-aholic and all around reading diva. Really, I kick down doors –no, wait, that was my husband when I locked us out of the house . . . Well, I engage in combat on a regular basis –online when I play MMORPGs with my children . . . OK, maybe I’m not a real ninja but my husband says I stole his heart. Does that count?
No? Shoot. Well, I love reading and I love writing. I think imagination is the biggest advantage a child can get in life and I try to allow my children many opportunities to expand theirs every day.
I love teaching authors how to avoid publishing traps and scams as well as how to market themselves and their works. There is nothing better in life than giving someone information that helps them become successful.
I also take a few hours each week and create jewelry, make lotions or paint something. I have little creation stations scattered through the house. My daughter gets into it a lot and scatters things which drives my husband crazy but remember how I mentioned that he says I stole his heart? Yeah. I’m not giving it back. He’s stuck with me forever. Bwah ha ha ha!
