Homicide detective Samantha Brown is a tough, highly decorated cop. But twelve lonely years after she nearly died of a gunshot wound, she aches with a deep inner longing. In pursuit of a deranged killer, her only clue is a medieval cross inscribed "Lucan"-the name of the owner of a new nightclub near the murder scene. Drawn into a seamy underworld, Samantha falls for Lucan-who believes he's a vampire and Samantha is his reincarnated first love. Now, she must save this mysterious, seductive man who seems beyond redemption if he is to fulfill her deepest, darkest desires.


 Samantha showed him the victim’s photo. “Do you recognize this woman?”
 Lucan studied the image. “Yes, but I don’t know her name.”
 “How do you know her?”
 “I had sex with her several weeks ago.” He sat back on the edge of his desk.
 “You were lovers?”
 He smiled. “We were strangers.”
 “Do you often have one-night stands with strange, nameless women, Mr. Lucan?”
 “Three nights.” He drained his wine glass and straightened, moving a step forward.
 “What was that?” Samantha asked.
 “It was a three-night stand. I kept her in my bed for three nights.” He bent closer, and his voice dropped to a bedroom murmur. “How many nights would you last, Detective?”
 Was he hitting on her? “None.” Sam felt strange, rooted to the floor. “I don’t have sex with strangers.”
 “Then let’s get better acquainted, shall we?”

Lynn Viehl...treats the vampire universe to a sharp new set of fangs. (Holly Lisle)
