Sold to a vampire when she was a girl, Tara Score never thought she'd ever experience happiness, let alone a happily-ever-after.
After she is viciously assaulted by one of her master's guests, Tara flees into the woods. She would rather die than be turned into a cold, blood-sucking monster. Alone and dying, Tara makes a wish…
Tara wakes to find herself in the bed of a handsome lion shifter. Gareth Knight saved her life by giving her his blood. She is alive, but not fully human and not fully vampire. Horrified, angry and confused, Tara is determined to destroy herself.
But Gareth, his family and townsfolk show Tara that she is not alone, and there are good people who will stand with her and fight for her.
When ancient, evil forces descend on the town, the whole town bands together to defend and protect one of their own.
In the wise words of Gramma and Ne-ma:
“You messed with the wrong town!”
