Saxton Lance a.k.a. Apollo is frustrated. He had his Omega in his sights before it escaped into the woods. Now he may have to wait for hundreds of years before he has another chance of capturing his dragon to claim his soul. On a night out with his fellow slayers to ease his disappointment, he is drawn to the scent of a woman he sees dancing at a club.
A woman he wants in his bed.
Orelle Molyneux has had a close one. Defying the rules, she slips out of Havenshade to relish the open forests of Derwent Valley when she is nearly caught by her slayer. On a trip to town, she meets up with friends who invite her to a club. There she lets lose, imagining herself dancing for her ideal man. Never does she expect that when she opens her eyes, her fantasy man is in front of her and takes her breath away.
But both have secrets. Both can destroy the other. When the truth is revealed, there can only be one outcome.
For Apollo to find peace, he has to kill the woman he loves.
