Chevalier has never been told no. For thousands of years heâs sat on the Equites Council, ruling body of his heku faction, and for thousands of years his every order has been followed immediately and without question. One of the most important rules of the heku, is that no one is to feed from unwilling donors. Following a tip that a young mortal woman is being brutally attacked by his own kind, he seeks her out and immediately begins to experience unnatural feelings for the woman. Emily, a beautiful rancher from Montana, has spent her entire life being violently attacked by beings she assumed were vampires. It isnât until she meets Chevalier that she learns of her startling family history, a history that immediately throws her into the volatile world of the heku. In a bid to protect her, Chevalier moves Emily into his isolated coven, which marks her as a prime target for the Valle and the Encala, enemy factions of the heku. Emily fights to fit into the militaristic world of the heku as her head-strong personality and independent ways turn their perfectly balanced world on end. She immediately befriends Kyle, a heku from Chevalierâs coven, and together they find Emily a niche among the immortal. Emilyâs violent past interferes with Chevalierâs plans, and he must first undo what her abusive ex-husband did before he can convince her how much he cares about her, and how much sheâs worth to his faction. Chevalierâs growing feelings for Emily are unnatural to his kind, and must be hidden from the rest of the Equites Faction if heâs to remain a formidable part of their Council. His jealous tendencies rage as Emily gets closer to Kyle, and both heku struggle to make her realize how important she is to the faction and how endangered she now is.

Chapter 1 - Meeting
“Ms. Russo?” he asked, looking down at the woman in the house. He had spoken to her by phone but hadn’t met her yet.
Emily looked up, trying not to gasp as she saw that the men stood almost two feet taller than her and had broad shoulders that threatened to bulge out of the dark green western-style shirt “Jerry, was it?”
“Please, call me Emily… and you’re a little early, so why don’t you wait in the barn, and I’ll be out in a bit,” she told him, and shut the door when he and his friend headed out toward the rustic barn.
Emily quickly ran a brush through her hair and pulled on her riding gloves before heading out. She glanced once around the house for Sam, the overseer, but he was still out plowing. Her attackers were all tall and muscular, and she couldn’t help but wonder if these two were also going to attack her. She took a deep breath and headed out to the barn.

Both of them glanced at her nervously. Her scent blew by them with the breeze, and they fought to control their natural instincts as the mere smell made their throats burn with thirst....
