This is the fifteenth book in the series. It tells the story of how Rafael De La Cruz and Colby Jansen came together.


Rafael De La Cruz has spent centuries hunting vampires with his brothers, and with each passing year his capacity to feel emotions has grown weaker and weaker until finally there's barely been a memory left—until only sheer willpower keeps him from turning into the very abomination he hunts. But it'll take more than will to keep him away from the woman who is meant to be his and his alone…

For five years, rancher Colby Jansen has been the sole protector of her younger half-siblings, and with fierce determination and work she has kept her family together and the ranch operational. Now, the De La Cruz brothers are threatening that stability. They claim that her siblings belong with their father's family, not with her. Colby vows to fight them—especially the cold and arrogant Rafael De La Cruz. But Rafael is after more than her family—he wants Colby and will not let anything stand between them. After ages of loneliness, the raw desire to possess her overwhelms his very soul, driving him to claim her as his lifemate...

Christine's Notes[]

Raphael is one of five brothers sent out by Prince Vladimer, Mikhail's father, to keep the South American continent safe from the depraved vampire. Forced to travel to the United States to recover two children belonging to the family that has been loyal to him throughout the centuries, he finds a young woman unlike anyone he has ever known. Shrouded in mystery, murder and plagued by accidents, she holds on to what is dearest to her despite all the odds against her. This book is the second in a five-book series within the Dark Books about the South American brothers. (The first is Dark Hunger in the Hot-Blooded [sic] anthology.)
