Raina's Sire has released her to be with her human love. Finally.
If only her hunger for blood wasn't getting out of control and endangering him.
If only the first vampire and most dangerous being on earth wasn't pursuing her for his torturous pleasure.
If only she could stay.
She travels across the world to escape Varo, the man who began the vampire curse. Leaving everything she loves behind, she goes to Tombstone, where the Silver City Strangler has been making his own living dead girls, leaving their naked bodies to be claimed by the desert sun. Finding and dealing with him will feed the beast inside the beautiful new vampire, yet protect her human soul from disintegrating into nothingness.
But The First has found her. He wants to hurt her, to make Raina's Sire suffer for killing his love, but never thought his stone-cold heart would come alive again.
He torments Raina, but she can feel his hidden desire, him secretly begging for her, and her being fascinated with him. She is drawn to The First, for he is beautiful and deadly... and the one who started it all.

“Raina, my God, what are you doing?” Andrew stands in the doorway of the small servant’s quarters. I rip my fangs out of the limp, kitchen servant and lick up every ruby drop to soften the scene my human lover has walked in upon.
The air rushes violently as I run to him, but I gently put my arms around his neck. My lips curl into a mischievous grin. “Rejuvenation, before the opera tonight. I figured you wouldn’t care to stop along the way.” I rustle my hand through his sandy blond hair that glistens like grains of sand upon the lakeshore he first loved me upon. He glances to the bed where his servant lies daydreaming upon the pillow, then back to me, and I catch the glimmer of horror upon his handsome face, and sense it deep in his thoughts. He doesn’t like what I am.
But luckily, he can’t resist me.
