The second novella by Maggie Shayne begins when a young woman, Chloe returns from prom night where she was one of the princesses of the Prom court to find her parents murdered and drained of their blood.

Instead, she kills him and bolts. The second chapter begins with her life as a cop years later and with a handle on being a vampire. Like only drinking blood from the blood bank, and working nights. Then murders begin in her town that smell of vampire and she joins a mortal detective in solving the crimes and stopping the fiend. She also feels an attraction for the man.

The elusive ideal conceived and created by the Genetics Council, he went by just as many names as he had identities—the last one being Gideon.
Now calling himself Graeme, he hides in plain sight, terrifyingly close to his goal. A rogue Bengal Breed, he has loyalties to no one but himself. And he has a need for vengeance that surges hot and swift through his veins.
Graeme plans to exact an extreme and ruthless vendetta against those who wronged him—Breed and human alike. All will suffer his wrath: those who created him, those who pretended to love him, and those who betrayed him.
That includes the one at the center of it all: a seductive, enigmatic woman helpless against the man whose desire is just as desperate as his need to destroy. And he’s on her scent…
Saved from death as an infant and protected and watched over by Gideon, or “G” as she called him, Cat worshiped him until after he was wounded and his brother, Judd used her blood in transfusion to save Gideon’s life. After that, he left them, or so she thought. Years after hers, Judd’s and her Breed friend, Honor’s escape from the lab, Cat now lives in a house by the Breed sanctuary. She meets Graeme, but though he smells of a Lion Breed and looks somewhat different, she knows he is her Gideon, now a brilliant Rogue Bengal Breed, with only loyalty to himself and a need for vengeance. Between the two of them is a desire so potent that though they deny it on the outside, beneath, they cannot and are drawn to each other.
