The newest vampire Merit of Chicago, is learning how to fit well with the others. Other supernaturals, that is. The shifter nationwide are invited to the Windy City, and as a gesture of peace, Master Vampire Ethan Sullivan has offered their leader a very special bodyguard: Merit. Merit is supposed to protect the Alpha, Gabriel Keene-and to spy for the vamps while doing that. Oh, and luckily Ethan is offering gauzy-combat training sessions one on one to help her prepare for the mission.
Merit must accept the assignment, even though you know you’ll regret it. And no mistake. Someone is shooting Gabriel Keene, and Merit soon finds himself in the firing line. Need all the help I can get to track down the murderer, but everywhere he goes, there will be tensions between supernaturals-not least between her and a certain green-eyed master vampire of centuries old.
