If Sorcerer Garon Rothwell has sex, he loses his powers - and also the rigid control he has over his life. But when he meets bookstore owner and ex-army intelligence officer Tara Carlisle, he desperately wants to give in to the passion she evokes in him. The only thing stopping him are his own fears and a woman four hundred years dead.
Tara wants Garon, but until they catch the evil stalking her little town, she can't give in to the desire she knows they both feel. The frustration is killing her.
Erzsebet Bathory murdered over six hundred women the last time she walked the earth. Now Tara has inadvertently brought her back, she might beat her previous record.
Will Garon and Tara succumb to the passion that is burning them alive and lose the chance to stop the Blood Countess before she becomes too powerful to kill? Or is there another way?
