SummaryAdd a Summary
Tegan, a Gen One vampire, is the toughest and most deadly of the Order. Nightly he battles ruthlessly in the conflict against Rogue vampires and it is on one such night that he sees a small figure leaving the scene of a crime. Stalking the figure's scent, Tegan is led to an alley fight in which he realizes that the woman fighting for her life against a Rogue is none other than Elise Chase, a beautiful Darkhaven widow. Tegan orders Elise home where he follows her once cleanup is complete. Wanting to know why she is no longer within the safety of the Darkhaven, Tegan is surprised when Elise asks for his help to learn self control in dealing with her psychic gifts but not surprised enough to refuse. That is, until he realizes that the gift she possesses is slowly killing her inside.
The two unlikely lovers form an alliance. Each is committed to annihilating the Rogues that prey upon human and vampire alike. So committed in fact that they don't realize how much each will depend on the other for friendship, passion, and the ultimate - love.

Neither of the two warriors had any argument. They let this petite female - Tegan's mate, he thought with a swelling of pride - guide them into full-on day-light, then into the back of the car. "Keep your heads down and stay covered. Eliise ordered, I'm getting us the hell out of here" and, by God, so she did.
