Word Count: 84,000 words
Author: Susan Burdorf

She knows he watches her, and while both repulsed and fascinated by him, Detective Shana McGrew tries to focus on the case at hand. A girl has been killed, not just killed, her body was feasted upon and Shana knows it was him. Convincing her colleagues might be a little harder, after all, vampires are just creatures of myth, right? Her partner Bruiser is the only one who stands by her, but she has a feeling he has his own agenda when it comes to finding this killer.

Shana's connection to this creature of myth is more than that of a detective on a case - they share a personal history that haunts her to this day, and the scar that remains is a constant reminder of his presence in her thoughts and life. But her only goal now is to find and kill him, if her heart can remain her own, that is.
