Book 3 in the Kendrians series. Duncan Mordoor has lived his entire life in total control. His hybrid vampire status might allow him to walk in the sun, but with his unique mind-reading ability, humans easily bore him and vampires give him a wide berth. Feeling like an outsider, Duncan limits his contact with both races, living by the mottoA‚A—Never join in, never let your true emotions be known, and above allA‚A…never lose control. He never expected rescuing a human woman would turn his life upside down. Everything he thought he was changed the day he met Rose Sinclair. Rose has always held her emotions inside, keeping complete control, but there's one heart's desire she's always wanted. When a client offers her seven grand to provide proof vampires exist, Rose takes the case. One minute she's in a nightclub asking questions about the existence of vampires, the next she's running from a very real rogue vampire who's decided she'd make a perfect mate. But nothing scares her more than the seductive hybrid vampire who rescues her. With just one swipe of his tongue, Duncan makes her body hum, awakening a part of her she didn't know existed. Note: Although part of a series, this story can be read as a stand-alone.
