Award-winning, bestselling author Susan Squires brings you into a world of erotic temptation, a world that comes alive at night and thrives on our darkest secrets and longings. Here a young woman finds a man who satisfies her every longing. But if he touches her, he will destroy her. Take the journey to an unforgettable place into the heart of darkness and desire.

A Forbidden Temptation . . .

It is 1821, and all who know the beautiful, mysterious Ann Van Helsing believe she is insane. Yet Ann's curse is not lunacy, but rather the deep psychic ability that allows her to know everything about another human being -- their history, thoughts, and desires -- simply by touching them. Overwhelmed by a power she can barely control, Ann roams the woods and caves near her estate, searching for a peace that eludes her. It is here she encounters the man who will change everything.

Leaves Her Yearning . . .

To repent for an unforgivable transgression against his own kind, vampire Stephen Sincai has become a vigilante who must hunt and kill those whom other vampires have made. When Ann discovers Stephen bleeding in the woods, she reaches to touch him before she can stop herself. In an instant, Ann knows every fiber of Stephen's being -- and the knowledge is at once frightening and insatiable.

For Eternal Fulfillment . . .

Ann and Stephen are drawn together by a force more powerful than they know. As Stephen and Ann continues to fight against the evil surrounding them, an unseen treachery has yet to be revealed: an enemy bent on destroying them by making them choose between what they love and fear the most.
