Vail the Unwanted is a pure-blooded vampire, but, raised by Faery, he has neither a home nor peace. When his aid is sought in the recovery of a priceless diamond gown, his price is information — specifically, the whereabouts of his accused father. His goal is revenge, and the supernaturally sexy Lyric — the icy blond vampire with whom he must work — is a distraction he can't afford.
Outwardly as cold as the diamond dress in which she was kidnapped, Lyric has her own secrets. Desperate to break free from her criminal family, she aligns herself with the brooding Vail. Together they seek justice while each secretly works for freedom and a fresh start. For Lyric, that means holding herself apart — even from the smouldering blue-eyed Vail. For Vail, it means a battle to the death for revenge — and for a temptress he can't deny.
