AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Arissa Petros has been abused most of her life. She is just 19 years old when with the help of a friend of hers, she runs away from her abuser and moves to another state to work for an elderly lady who has a broken leg and needs someone to help her out around the home. Arissa's never been away from home or another state for that matter so it's all quite terrifying for her. She is torn between fear of the unknown and relief at being away from the man who hurt her for so long.

Mrs Appleby is kind and loving and it doesn't take Arissa long to settle in to her new life until she meets one of the neighbours from over the road.

Lucian Andreas is the classic tall, dark and handsome man. He wants her and pursues her despite the fact she is terrified of him and wants nothing to do with him. For Arissa men represent pain and they aren't to be trusted. She has no desire to have anything to do with them ever!

Lucian won't give up on her though and slowly but surely he draws her to him with his looks, his patience and his gentle treatment of her. He makes Arissa want things she's never wanted before, to feel things she's never felt before. He teaches her that it is possible to let a man into her life, to trust him, to maybe even love him.

He finds out about her past, she finds out that he is vampire but it's not enough to destroy the way they are feeling about one another until unexpected tragedy strikes and suddenly everything changes.

Can they survive? Will their relationship handle the stresses placed on it? Everything seems lost, that all hope is gone until that chance discovery one night. That one thing that changes everything…' (Publisher's summary)
