A small part of Zack Savage, a ghost of what he’d been before tainted vampire blood transformed him into a bloodthirsty monster, wants to spare Emily’s life. But he can’t. Claiming her isn’t an option. She’s his destiny, his eternal mate. While he’s one of the most powerful immortal beings ever born, he’s powerless to protect her from his hunger for her body, for her blood. A savage hunger as dark as his damaged soul…and as inescapable as fate.
