Asher Evans is a man haunted by history. Turned vampire in the concentration camp that claimed his family, he has never recovered from the loss of his humanity. Removed from the mundane world and resigned to facing eternity alone, he's completely unprepared when the unthinkable happens: he meets a girl.
As the youngest daughter of San Francisco's most prestigious psychic family, Grace Alan has always known about the things that go bump in the night. She especially knows about monsters...including the fact that she is one. Grace has spent her entire life trying to be normal, and finally, things seem to be looking up. There's only one problem.
She's just been murdered.
When Asher stumbles upon a dying Grace, he knows he should leave her to her fate. But in a world that looks at him and sees a monster, Grace reminds him what it feels like to be human. He can't bring himself to let her die.
Unfortunately, rescuing her has consequences. Female vampires have been illegal for centuries. In saving Grace, Asher may have condemned them both.
L.J.K. Oliva chases ghosts and writes urban fantasy in the ShadowVerse. She loves a good love story, and has a soft spot for magic.
When not poking the thing that lives in her closet, she enjoys exploring the shadows of the San Francisco Bay Area and searching for faeries in the creek near her house. She hasn’t found any yet, but thinks that’s because they’re better at hiding than she is at searching. She’s still waiting for one to slip up.
