One woman, the fate of the world in her unknowing hands. One man, sworn to destroy her. A love so strong it defies nature. In a world of obsession, deception and betrayal, the line between good and evil fades, but one truth remains absolute. Darkness must fall.

For centuries, werewolf, Dominic Ridolfi, has battled the demons of the night, upholding the sacred pact to protect man from vampires. Yet when sent to destroy the long lost Cacciatori heiress, the vampire prophesied to free her kind from the curse of darkness, he finds himself reluctant to complete his task. The innocent beauty awakens his humanity and Dominic finds himself not in the role of assassin, but savior.

Swept away in a whirlwind romance, Kate loses herself in Dominic’s mysterious world of opulence and seduction. But Dominic has a secret. He knows the truth about Kate’s past, and her future, truths with the power to destroy them both. Only in her dreams does Kate sense the growing darkness within. Dominic saved her once, but can she save herself from the darkness within?

“What did you say then?”

“I think… I imprinted,” Dominic clarified reluctantly. “You know, Il cambiamento.”

“You what?!?!” More booming laughter on the other end of the line, only this time, it didn’t ebb. Dominic could hear his brother’s exuberant mirth all too easily with the phone held well away from his ear. He grasped at the last shreds of his rapidly unraveling patience and sucked in another deep breath.

“Gio.” Dominic addressed his brother sternly. More laughter.

“Gio!” he shouted into the microphone of his phone.

“I’m sorry, Dom,” Giovanni finally managed, still chuckling. “But, oh how the mighty hath fallen. This is just too great. You— imprinted? Like an animal? Like in those lame girly books Gianna’s always reading? Ha! I don’t believe it. I can’t imagine you traipsing after any woman with your tail and tongue wagging like a smitten little puppy dog. This I’ve got to see. She’s got to be hot. She’s hot, right?” Giovanni asked with rising enthusiasm.

Dominic knew his brother was just warming to his subject. He closed his eyes and massaged his temples. This night just kept getting better. “Yes, she is very beautiful,” Dominic sighed.

“Well, who is she? Tell me all about my future sister.”

How could he answer that? There was no real way to explain the perfection that was Kate. She was beautiful and kind, loving and passionate. She had unknowingly stolen his heart and imprinted herself on his soul. He needed her more than the air he breathed and loved her desperately with each and every breath he took. He would gladly face an eternity in the fires of Hell to be with her, would sacrifice all…

Dominic must have been lost in thought for far longer than he realized. Giovanni interrupted his reverie. “Hey, Dom?”


“What does imprinting have to do with your ability to kill the girl?” Gio’s voice was cautious. Dominic could guess what conclusion weighed heavily on his brother’s mind. No less than the truth. The air was heavy with their mutual silence, neither willing to tread forward on such dangerous ground.

“Who is she, Dom?”

Dominic couldn’t force the words from his mouth. His silence was more damning than any confession.

“No.” Giovanni’s horrified protest was little more than a whisper.

“I love her,” Dominic sighed.  

Dead silence fell from Giovanni’s end. No words passed between the two brothers as each contemplated the momentous implications of Dominic’s admission, of his betrayal.

“Do you know what you’ve done?” Giovanni choked, his voice thick with sorrow.
