His legacy demands her sacrifice.
The Whitcombe Legacy: Three brothers, all vampires. For more than a century they’ve waited to fulfill a prophecy that could restore their humanity.
Julian Whitcombe’s mission is to destroy vampires who prey on the citizens of New Orleans. According to prophecy, a woman with the power to restore Julian’s humanity will enter his life when the need for his transformation is greatest. As a mortal, Julian will continue his fight against the evil ones in both daylight and darkness, fulfilling his destiny. So, when Hurricane Katrina hits with a vengeance, Julian’s not surprised to find Simone LeClerc on his doorstep. He immediately knows she’s the woman destined to make him human again. All he has to do is make her fall in love with him—and make her willing to offer her life in exchange for his.
Simone LeClerc is frantically searching for her missing stepsister. Out of money and with no place to live, Simone finds help at Mike’s After Dark, a bar in the French Quarter. There, Simone meets Julian and finds herself falling hopelessly in love with him.
Still, as they search for her sister—and fight off evil vampires from hell—Simone can’t help wondering if it’s really love she’s feeling for Julian or if he’s woven a spell around her that will mean her certain death.
