Release Date: April 30th, 2014
The new release edition features a brand new cover, additional chapters and a never-before-seen preview of Jaded Touch.
A woman's memory returns when she falls in love with the monster who took it from her.
Calli tattoos her skin to fill the holes in her memory, thanks to an accident that left her mind damaged and empty. But a nasty encounter with a fired employee leaves her in the arms of her unlikely savior: Nycholas, a predatory, serpentine Vesper on the run from his brutal master.
Nycholas’ clandestine world holds the secrets to mankind’s origin and survival… but he only wants one thing before his time is up: a few colorful nights with Calli, the fragile, tattooed, human woman he pursued and saved.
The more Calli learns about Nycholas, the more her own darkened memories return to her. Despite her haunted past, she loses herself to passion and desire with her immortal captor.
Now, Calli must overcome the demons of her past, or allow Nycholas to kiss her memories away and spare her the trauma of loving a doomed immortal. But each choice comes with dire consequences – some that endanger not only herself, but her family as well.
This book exceeded all my expectations. Normally, I try to stay away from tragic love stories, but sometimes you read a book summary and just have to read that book. This book screamed at me to read it, so I did. The gradual reconnection of the characters Calli and Nycholas is very believable and while Nycholas is a monster, there is something about him that makes you love him. He just wants to love and be loved. Nycholas has spent his immortality serving the whims of his master and betrays him to be with Calli. I really felt bad for Calli and how she spends years yearning after Nycholas and does not know he is what she has been missing from her life because he removed her memories of him to protect her. In the end, the way Nycholas stops running just to spend his final days with Calli before he is killed is what truly touched me. Though this was a sad story, it was also great and I definitely recommend it to others.
