~“I remember you.” Her teeth chattered and her breath wheezed as she drew another breath, “Y-you were there.”
He smoothed her matted hair away from her face. “We’ve met once before, sweet.”
Her voice roughened and scratchy, Jordan continued, “Y-yes. At the bar, but I sa-saw you.” Her chest violently constricted and coughs rattled her slight frame.
Gabriel’s brow furrowed. The pain, blood loss, and trauma must be causing her confusion. She needed medical attention. Now. Scott was waiting with the jets. The former surgeon would be able to help her, if Gabriel could get her to him.
Carefully he shifted her and removed his jacket. Enfolding her in its warmth, he then tore at his shirt. He needed to stop her bleeding. Using his hands and teeth, he shredded the material and wrapped the strips around her head then used his tie to secure the makeshift tourniquet. Straining his senses, he listened for the sound of the Hummer’s engine. Turning his head to the East, he scanned the tree line. Gannon wasn’t far.
“At the b-boathouse.”
Her words drew his eyes back to her. Had she seen him during the raid? Unlikely. She’d been on the boat, battling the guards when he arrived. Surely she’d been too preoccupied to notice him.
Brushing aside her claim, he replied, “Save your strength.”
“Y-you said m-my name.” Her fingertips lightly skipped over his lips and Gabriel beat back the urge to snatch her hand and press a kiss to each delicate tip. “I saw your lips move,” she gasped.
Stunned, unable to respond, Gabriel pulled her closer and began to rock with her. Lulling her. Had she heard his demonic war cry? Had she seen him crazed with the need to find her and maddened by bloodlust? Good god, the poor girl had to think he was a monster after what she’d witnessed.
Gabriel gently caught her wrist and felt something tug hard in chest when she laced her fingers with his. “Don’t fear me, sweet. I won’t hurt you.”~

Hardened by centuries of torture, former blood slave, Gabriel Erhard, is driven by an insatiable need to destroy his enemies. Violence darkens his battered soul, leaving no place for mercy in his world. Gabriel’s only desire is vengeance—until he finds her.
Seized by vampires, bound as a slave, and placed on the auction block, Jordan Culver is instantly entranced by the dangerous male who claims her.

While Gabriel battles his enemies, he will break every sacred law to achieve his ultimate goal—uniting the Outcast Society and creating a new vampire Clan. But the distracting human with mesmerizing violet eyes jeopardizes his plans. With every soft whisper she evokes his tormented memories, testing his sanity and challenging his every boundary. Can Jordan help him overcome the miseries of his past and find a future with her?
