Jameson Montreat is a lonely wolf shifter who had one job that was essential to the protection of the human species. A job he was unable to do. Now, with more vampires throwing their hat into the political ring every day, he can't stop it. He can't kill vampires, none of the shifters can. Only a switch can kill a vampire, and they died out a hundred years ago. But then an impossibly captivating switch walks right into the anti-vampire meeting, turning every shifter head in the place. She is not meant for him, as much as he might need her to be.

Coralie Hamilton is a normal woman, living a normal life, waiting for something big. What that something is, she has no idea, but when some base part of her brain causes her to go temporarily insane and try to stab a politician in the throat with a fountain pen, her future suddenly becomes crystal clear. She's a natural born killer, and the only thing that can calm her killing instincts in the moment is the love of a shifter male who is strong enough to handle her.

Yesterday, she didn't believe in shifters. Today, she's got to choose the one who will keep her sane.

Crystal

I've loved him for as long as I can remember. I wish I could be more to him than just his best friend's little sister, but you know how that goes.

If I took time to take stock of my life, I would never get out of bed in the morning. I came home from the army with scars and nightmares that haunt me when I sleep, my mother said "sayonara" to my brothers and now it's up to me to take care of them. Then there's the club. It seems like I traded one war zone for another.

The only beautiful thing I have in my life is Crystal. She's the only one I want. But the jacked up thing about that is she's also the one I need to stay the hell away from. She's gonna make something of her life. And I'll be damned if I let anything stop her from her reaching her dreams. I'll die before letting anything happen to her.

But when her dad called and said someone was hunting her down, the same someone who tricked me into killing her brother, I knew things were going to get sticky. What I never could have imagined was just how sticky.

Rachel:

I never could have imagined in a million years back then that Knox would save me but he did. All I can remember from that awful time years ago is that if he hadn't come along when he did...it makes me sick just to think about it. At the time, I knew that I would leave and never see him again and I'd never find a way to repay him for what he had done for me. So I gave him the most precious gift that I had to give ...

Knox:

If you would have asked me back then would I have spent a decade searching for some random woman I'd met on a train; a beautiful woman with equally beautiful, different-colored eyes, I would have told you that you were crazy. No, better yet, I probably would've said you were more than f**king crazy, more like certifiably insane. I can't explain it but when she looked at me with that pain in her eyes, she trapped the hell out of my heart. And after what happened that night, that amazing night we shared on that train, I could have easily spent the rest of my life looking for her, if only to get to touch her one more time.
