Up until the moment she’s shot and left for dead, biologist Elena Arcos lived a pretty nondescript life. Now the “Slayer” Nikolai Itzov has abducted and pulled Elena into a world she never knew existed alongside her own. He’s been sent to kill her before she transforms into the dark creature she’s destined to become. Yet something in this not-quite-human woman calls to Nikolai’s blood. To his desir. To his soul. Now he must protect her…until she changes into the one thing he is sworn by birth to hate.
