As a mob boss’s daughter and former assassin, it’s safe to say vampire Rose Winter has a few secrets to keep. But now she’s started a new life as a nurse in Icy Cap and even made some friends. Well, one friend. Not too many people are lining up to befriend a vamp. To top it all off, her mother’s coming for a visit and expecting to meet Rose’s fiancé. Only one problem—Rose made him up. Now she’s worried she’ll lose her one and only friend, Gary the Ghoul, after she convinces him to pose as the love of her life.
Gary Just is a US Marshall and no longer Icy Cap’s resident outcast. In fact, he looks pretty darn hot thanks to a life saving infusion of vamp blood. Gary has two goals, find the assassin stalking his ailing witness and getting out of the ‘friend zone’ with Rose.
Soon, things are heating up between Rose and Gary despite downright frigid Alaska temps. But as Gary learns about Rose’s secrets, his job with the law enforcement community is in jeopardy. Heck, he’d get a great promotion by simply turning her in. Gary doesn’t want to return to his former pariah status but loving Rose might demand it. Can our favorite ghoul get the girl and keep his new life?
