Description

"Heart-wrenching, redemptive and stirringly passionate... A series opener to be read and savored."—RT Book reviews, 4 ½ stars.

First in a thrilling steampunk paranormal romance series, Honoria Todd is being hunted by a vicious blue-blood, and her only chance of survival lies with the notorious master of the rookeries in Whitechapel. But at what price? Her blood? Or something more?

Most people avoid the dreaded Whitechapel district. For Honoria, it's the last safe haven as she hides from the Blue Blood aristocracy that rules London through power and fear.

Blade rules the rookeries—no one dares cross him. It's been said he faced down the Echelon's army single–handedly, that ever since being infected by the blood-craving he's been quicker, stronger, and almost immortal.

When Honoria shows up at his door, his tenuous control comes close to snapping. She's so...innocent. He doesn't see her backbone of steel—or that she could be the very salvation he's been seeking.
