In this first novel of a dazzling paranormal romantic trilogy, set in a grisly version of modern-day Seattle, one woman's courageous search plunges her into a millennia-old supernatural war—and an irresistible passion.
Nurse Kayla Friday has dedicated her life to science and reason. But for her, Seattle is a place of eerie loss and fragmented, frightening memories. Now the only clue to her sister's murder reveals a secret battle between two ancient mythologies—and puts Kayla in the sights of lethally sexy werewolf-mercenary Hart. He'll do whatever it takes to obtain the key to the Gate of the Land of the Dead and free what's left of his soul. But seducing the determined Kayla is putting them both at the mercy of powerful desires neither can control. As the clock ticks down to a hellish catastrophe, the untested bond between Kayla and Hart may lead to the ultimate sacrifice.
