Samantha Van Skyhawk's, life is in terrible danger—and her unlife may just be beginning. Samantha’s dad is a vampire and soon, she too will change. She flees with her mom and brother to Shadow Falls to find the spell to kill the vampire blood flowing through her veins. When Samantha encounters Brent, a human with the most bewitching smile, things get complicated. She doesn’t have time for a romance, not with the daunting task of defeating a vampire who has been around for centuries. Then Samantha meets Drake, a totally hot vampire, who claims she belongs with him and the darkness within her completely agrees. She must fight her incredible urge to be with Drake and the yearning within her soul to become what she fears most. Will she save herself and those she loves or will she embrace the night forever.
He traced her face through the air, careful not to touch her. “Do you trust me?”
“I long to kiss you. To feel your warmth. What if I promise not to change you tonight…just to hold you for a brief moment?”
It was stupid to believe him. But how would his arms feel wrapped around her? “How can I possibly trust you?”
“Sometimes you have to believe in something.”
In spite of all her logic, she carefully took off her elegant new cross and let it slip through her fingers. She stepped into his embrace and stared into his beautiful dark eyes. He slowly moved his lips to hers. Her heart pounded as if she was running for her life. Maybe she was. Maybe she’d die right here in his arms tonight.
As his lips found hers, she sighed. He was magnificent and kissing him was beyond what mere words could ever describe. Strange, though; his touch was so cold, and yet it caused her to burn with such passion. The heat grew stronger every single second. It was amazing.
She loved him. She wanted this forever. It was him she wanted. Not Brent. She shook her head. It was the darkness within her thinking these thoughts. Not the real her.
