All vampires were once human.
Who says they can't be again?
Carrying invisible wounds from a tragic childhood, Hannah Jacobs doesn't allow herself to fall in love - until she meets John Trott. Sexy as hell, charming, and sensitive, she immediately finds herself drawn to him and, within days, giving him her heart. Twice broken, John effortlessly makes her heart whole again, except Hannah's buried fear threatens to shatter it once more as dangerous circumstances reveal dark secrets.
One is a vampire and the other a vampire hunter, making a relationship impossible as they’ve been labeled natural enemies throughout history. A witch's journal, however, tells a much different tale. Centuries old it holds a dark and troubled past with a cure and prophecy, giving Hannah and John a future.
But, it's one they'll never see…
if she has a shattered heart.
All vampires once had love, had family.
Who says they can’t have them again?
Two weeks ago, Hannah Jacob's life was considered normal for a vampire hunter. She was single by choice, turning twenty-five years old, worked part-time as a librarian, was an excellent field agent for the Council - a secret government agency tasked with controlling the vampire population - and had amazing friends who doubled as her family. Fast forward to the present and her life could be an original Brothers Grimm fairy tale.
Destined by prophecy yet begot by love, Hannah's now married to blood-born vampire John Trott and magically pregnant with his child. On top of that her supposed-to-be-dead mother is a vampire, she's having vivid dreams of someone else's past, and she is being held hostage by Vlad - the First Vampire, a creature she should view as the epitome of pure evil but instead believes is a tortured soul who would never hurt her.
Reminded on the first day of her beauty-and-the-beast-like captivity that there are two sides to every story, Hannah begins to question the Council's side regarding Vlad. Soon after she has another dream and inadvertently discovers she's not the only one keeping prophetic secrets. His dark Majesty is harboring painful revelations too, ones that speak to his true character and hold the power to reunite all of their family.
But a true family they will never be...
if all have unforgiving hearts.
