Three cards. The past. The present. The future. Death. Strength. The Emperor.
Dakotah Flemming didn't believe that the tarot cards spread out in front of her held the truth. Because even though the fortune-teller's prediction of a man in her future, one unlike any other, filled her for precious seconds with longing and hope, she couldn't afford the luxury of such emotions. She was running from the past, from an enemy determined to see her dead. And as much as the wolf who shared her skin might want a mate, Dakotah didn't have any illusion that such a thing was possible.
Domino Santori had no intention of taking a bride, of converting her into a kadine—a vampire's mate. Instead he envisioned a future filled with an endless string of women to satisfy his needs. But the wolf that was an integral part of him had a different idea. And its will combined with The Heat and The Hunger of his race soon had Domino wanting Dakotah as fiercely as he'd once desired his freedom.
