Susan Michaels was once one of the most respected journalists in D.C. when the wrong information resulted in a huge scandal that ruined her career and her life. Now she writes about alien abductions and monsters that go bump in the night. That is, until she is given a lead on a possible cover-up and heads off to the local animal shelter where she expects to get proof that a killer is stalking Seattleís streets and the police know all about it. What she finds is that vampires do exist and she is the only human being alive to tell the tale. On top of that she adopts an unusually large cat she is allergic to. Of course, it turns out to be a gorgeous shape-shifting man who slays vampires for a living. Yeah. Sure. Oh yeah, and the police are knocking down doors to get to her.

When a luscious human female frees him she is unwittingly drawn into his perilous world. Raveyn will die before he will leave another to die because of his actions. Especially seeing as he is becoming attached to her.
