Nate Powell lived one full life as a world-class inventor before a disaster born of magic and science returned him to his prime--and turned him into a half-vampire, half-bloodhound abomination. He's finally stopped yearning for death, but he's a long way from being excited about life--though his newly virile body is pretty damn excited about the latest arrival to Iron Creek.
Diana is another creature that shouldn't exist--a female bloodhound. The other hounds of Iron Creek accept her as a fellow warrior, but Nate seems torn between studying her and protecting her--and neither satisfies Diana's far more erotic interest in him. She doesn't need protection. She needs a good, hard--
When they learn that a rogue hound is selling women across the border, Diana and Nate are chosen to infiltrate the vampires' capital city. Going undercover as a vampire and his pet is dangerous--especially when they begin to feel the mating pull. Because hounds never outlive their mates for long. In a fight to keep each other alive, they could both end up worse than dead.
