eBook Description: Jade Starbrite is a popular college student with a good future and an independent spirit. Everything is going well for her until one of her good friends, Bill Todd, ends up missing after visiting a local bar late one night. Determined to find out what happened to him, Jade ventures out only to fall into the same deadly vampire hands that Bill did. Now captured, alone, and ready to be made one of the undead herself, Jade is beginning to think her bright future may not be so shiny after all. Biker War Stanton is a shape shifting vulture and High King of his Wake. Many years ago he made a pledge to keep Jade safe from the vampire hoards, and he's been faithful to that oath ever since. But when he unexpectedly rescues her from a colony of vampires in a seedy bar, he knows it's not only time to tell her who she is, it's also time for him to lay claim to her as both his mate and his High Queen.

She was down there somewhere. He knew she must be nearby--he could feel her like a fever in his blood. He wanted her with every inch of his being, needed her like food in his belly. Does she remember who she is? Would she know me if she saw me? It had been so long that he dared not think she would.
High above the soaring slash pines of Best Southern College, he soared, searching. He looked for her as he did every day around this time, with a heavy heart and a wounded soul. Stretching his wings out, he caught an updraft and rode it for several minutes while focusing his mind on scent. If he could only smell a strand of her hair, a drop of her blood, he knew he'd find her.
Then she emerged from one of the buildings. Her long, thin limbs moving gracefully as she rushed out to her car and away from the afternoon heat.
Ah, there you are, my beauty. You grow lovelier every time I lay eyes on you. What I wouldn't give to have your sweet body under mine as I take you as you were meant to be taken.
Oblivious to him, she walked across the campus below, her backpack slung carelessly over one shoulder and her brown hair loose in the wind. He let himself linger high above her head for a little while longer. He could relax now. Everything was fine. She was safe.
In the back of his mind, he felt the others summoning him to return to the wake. They had found a new colony, and it would need to be cleansed. He was their leader, and they needed him. He had to go. Burying his disappointment, he flapped his wings and headed back--back to a life of unending loneliness, back to a life without her.
Don't worry, Jade, my love. Someday soon, you will be mine forever.
