Ava Valentine is a time-traveling bounty hunter from the distant future. She’s chased her fugitive back to present-day New York City, where she hopes her new contact will lead her to an uneventful capture. What she’s not expecting is to get mixed up with a man she suspects is a vampire.
Dexter Stone is a mysterious soldier of fortune. He holds an allegiance to few, and has a reputation for selling out anyone if the price is right. His word is good though, and once he chooses a side, it’ll take more than monetary gain to sway him to the other.
A run-in with an unsavory person from Ava’s past forces the pair into an uneasy alliance. And soon, Ava will discover that she could be Stone’s saving grace—or his downfall.
