When Dante stumbled into the Veterinary clinic bleeding and barely conscious, he had no idea that he would be changing the course of his life. It wasn't until after Dante took life saving blood from Tess Culver that he realized that she was a prized Breedmate. Unknowingly, Dante broke a vow to himself never to mate in his lifetime. Having watched his parents die and having visions of his own death, Dante has no desire to inflict the pain of loss on himself or a mate. All it took was one rash act to change the course of his future.
Dr. Tess Culver has always been different. Hiding it so deep inside that she rarely thinks about it, Tess is happy helping animals and the owners who love them. When Dante appears in her life, Tess finds herself at a loss to explain the sudden and intense attraction. All she knows is that Dante makes her feel like no one else ever has.
Dante would love to do nothing more than claim Tess as his own, but there is a war on the streets of Boston. When the drug Crimson starts circulating between civilian vampires, it turns them into Rogues almost immediately. Against his wishes, Dante is paired up with a civilian named Sterling Chase. Together, Dante and Chase must work together to stop the manufacturing of the deadly drug. When it appears as though Tess is involved with the dealer of Crimson, Dante doesn't know what to think. All he does know is that he will protect his mate at all costs.

Me too, Niko said, sauntering over and pulling out his own cache of weapons. The Russian grinned and nodded toward Lucan, Gideon and Tegan. "Your not going to leave me down here with these Gen One geezers, are you?"
