Iona finally wakes up from her fifteen year “sleep” with a strange man looking over her. Confused and angry, Iona quickly escapes from her savior and tries to get back to the life she had once known. Losing fifteen years of her life, Iona sets out seek revenge on the werewolf who imprisoned her and those who aided him. On the hunt for blood to regain her strength, Iona learns that the only blood that appeals to her pallet is Jamie O’Connell’s. Since Jamie’s blood was what awakened her from her “sleep” she is now bounded to him. Infuriated with the fact that she’s once again under another weres control, Iona sets her own plans for revenge against her first captor while using Jamie along the way.
For the last fifteen years, vampire queen Iona has been dead to the world. Trapped under the power of a brutal curse, she has been helpless. A prisoner, locked within her own still body. Then alpha werewolf Jamie O’Connell fights his way to her side. After defeating the guards that surround her, Jamie gives Iona his blood…and she rises.
The world has changed a great deal in the last fifteen years, and Iona has changed, too. Once known as the Blood Queen because of her dark reputation, she now finds herself longing for the blood of only one man…only he isn’t just a man. She wants the blood of her werewolf—Jamie’s blood. But Iona doesn’t realize that Jamie has been keeping secrets from her. Very dark, dangerous secrets. And Iona may have traded one curse for another.
Now that he has Iona, Jamie vows to never let her go. He needs his Blood Queen in order to defeat his enemy, he needs her to make his own beast stronger, and…he just needs her. Jamie has risked his life to claim Iona, and he won’t let anything break their bond. Not time. Not spells. Not even a wild and reckless vampire queen…
“The blood of a werewolf had put her under – that blood had frozen her body
and locked the spell’s magic in place.”
"She was the big secret weapon. You were supposed to use her, not fall for her."
