Release Day January 6, 2014
Order here: iBooks | BN | Amazon | Kobo
Kit Colbana: assassin, thief, and investigator extraordinaire. Now broken. She always expected her past to catch up with her but never like this. Haunted by nightmares and stripped of her identity, she’s retreated to Wolf Haven, the no-man’s land where she found refuge years before. But while she might want to hide away from the rest of the world, the rest of the world isn’t taking the hint.
Dragged kicking and screaming back into life, Kit is thrust head-first into an investigation surrounding the theft of an ancient relic...one that she wants nothing to do with. Her instincts tell her it’s a bad idea to just leave the relic lying about, but finding it might be just as bad.
Forced to face her nightmares, she uncovers hidden strength and comes face to face with one of the world’s original monsters.
If she survives the job, she won’t be the same...and neither will those closest to her.

Excerpt 1


Damon.
My heart raced. It had been three weeks since I’d seen him. It seemed like longer. But it wasn’t long enough. I couldn’t—
The door opened. My hand convulsed on the water and the plastic crumpled. Lowering my gaze, I stared at the water and sighed. Dumping it in the recycler, I dried my hands off. I was surprised to see they weren’t shaking. That was nice, I thought. At least I could face him without showing how much of a mess I was.
He’d know, of course.
Damon always knew.
My heart bumped against my ribs as I turned around and saw him standing in the door. His hair had grown out longer than I’d ever seen it, maybe even close to an inch all over. Eyes the color of thunderheads stared at me as I stood there. A muscle pulsed in his jaw.
The silence was weighted, a heavy burden settling on my shoulders as I fought the urge to back away. Run. Hide.
Nearly a month had passed since he’d barreled his way through the wards at TJ’s. An eternity seemed to stretch out between us, words hung unspoken, the pain in my heart, in my soul, so vivid and all consuming, it all but doubled me over.
Doyle was the one to shatter it. “Kit needs some information on somebody in the Clan.”
Damon shot me a look and then focused on Doyle. “What for?”
“Work.”
Damon looked back at me, taking in the gun, the K-bar strapped to my thigh and although he didn’t say anything, I suspected he was fully aware of the fact that I was pretty much loaded for bear. His gaze dropped to my belt—at least that was what I figured he was looking at, although some part of me, the part that wasn’t instinctively cowering in fear, felt a warm, shivery little tingle spark, then spread. I rested my hand on my belt and stroked the silver wire of the garrote, needing something to ground myself.
“You looking to kill one of my cats, kitten?” 


Excerpt 2


“I don’t like that woman, Damon. I don’t like her at all.”
A muscle in his jaw pulsed. “She’s a bitch, but the clan doesn’t exactly give out phone numbers just because a human girl calls up looking for one.”
“And what about when your girlfriend calls to talk to you after a fight?” I don’t know if I’d meant to talk about that or not. But the words ripped out of me and…and they were justthere. Thrown out like a sucker-punch and now they hung between us like an ugly, red stain.
Silence struck, heavy and weighted, crackling with more tension that I could stand.
Damon came off the couch in a smooth, controlled motion, his eyes locked on my face and everything inside him seemed…quiet.
Too quiet. All of that caged, restless energy was sucked down and he just stared at me, unblinking. It was damned unnerving.
Seconds ticked by and finally, he said softly, “What did you just say?”
