Guardian Riley Jensen returns as new killer sets their sights on Melbourne's vampire community. Someone has found a way to immobilize powerful vampires and kill them in brutal fashion. Clearly not the work of some slayer, Riley and her team are hard-pressed to gather the evidence and find an answer before someone else is murdered. Even her boss at the Directorate, Jack, is up in arms about this case.
Adding to the excitement, Riley is reunited with her vampire lover, Quinn. While part of her still longs for a werewolf mate and pack of offspring, what she has with Quinn is too good to jeopardize. He has finally accepted her wolven nature and the risks of her job. They are closer than ever before.
When a wolf from her past interferes in her investigation, Riley is aggravated. Kye Murphy is nothing but a bounty hunter. Just because he has been hired to find the killer doesn't mean he is going to walk all over her mission. There is something about the rogue wolf that makes Riley see red – when she isn't admiring his assets.
