Malakai Cavanagh has been a vampire for over a thousand years and the leader of the Irish vampire Kiss for almost two hundred. Not only is he a member of the Inferna council but he is also the face of Sicarius Security, the world’s most elite security company. More importantly, Sicarius is the legitimate front for what he and his Kiss do; killing those who threaten the very balance between human and Inferna, the ones who would show humans everything that goes bump in the night.
Keeva Cross is the abomination of her Scream, a banshee who cannot predict death, the industry that earns the Scream millions each year. Instead, Keeva’s touch can be lethal. After accidentally killing her best friend as a teenager, the sentence for her crime was a hundred years of service to earn her freedom. When she is offered a contract to kill one little vampire in order to wipe out the last twenty years of her sentence, Keeva is hungry to take the seemingly easy job.
Centuries old peace between the Inferna species is starting to unravel, and Malakai and Keeva find themselves caught in the middle of the beginnings of an uprising. Working together might be the only way to stop what’s coming, if only they can douse the flames of attraction that might just be the kiss of death.
