Kara and Grayson Moore ™˜

Existing for centuries, the goddess was comfortable by way of her immortal life. Then one evening she attended a masquerade ball and was introduced to a gifted wizard. The ‘being’ she lost her heart to—only to have his betrayal rip open her soul. Vowing to block his every memory from her thoughts, the vampire buried the past. Years later an evil within their world, forces the ebony-eyed beauty to seek his assistance. After fulfilling their bargain, she bids him good-bye. Unaware a past ancient evil lurks within the shadows—their paths meet again. For the secrets, Grayson Moore buried long ago could change their fate forever…

Prologue ~
London, England~
As darkness covered the earth, Grayson stirred. Once again, alone, the vampire cursed—his past sins. His desire to obtain absolute power costing ‘The Being’ what he treasured most… the ancient goddess with ebony eyes, the woman he married then deceived. Drawing air into his lungs, he reached out and grabbed the silver goblet. Once its crimson substance gulped down, he threw the ancient piece across the room. For his ‘carefully thought out’ plan had failed him—
Recalling the other evening, he swore. As he suffered within, incapable of changing her mind, he stood silent. Watching as Kara left without a care after their agreement for his aiding in destroying Shakir and helping Aden fulfilled.
Refusing to allow, his weakness toward the goddess another moment of control, the vampire shut down all his emotions. As the beast reclaimed its supremacy, Grayson smiled. For centuries, he existed without another and survived.
On this night, he vowed. No entity, human or vampire would ever possess the capability to influence his inner-self for all eternity.

The Egyptian Desert~
After weeks of solitude buried deep within her parents’ tomb, the vampire awoke. Drawing air into her lungs, the goddess fought to claim her next breath. Wiping away blood-stained tears, Kara screamed. “Damn you—for centuries I left the past buried! Refusing to allow your deceit—treachery to destroy me…” Bursting through the earth, becoming one with the skies, the vampire set aflame everything in her path. Angry beyond words, Grayson still possessed the power to influence her emotional state. Vowing the being’s hold ended this night, the goddess called forth all her abilities. Mentally, she suppressed his scent—the feel of his touch caressing her skin. The burning she felt within every time they made love—drank from each others vein. Once again, in control, she glanced at the ancient pyramids exhaling a sigh of relief.

Prologue

 

Italy1885~

Once again, the vampire awoke as excruciating pain ripped apart his chest.  Sucking the musty air into his lungs, Tristen cursed destiny.  Regardless how deeply he blocked her memory from his thoughts, night after night, she haunted him.  The dead woman, he loved beyond reason, his wife, Margarita Sinclair.  The being, he failed to protect, the vision of her demise breaking him in two.  Wiping the blood-stained tears from his eyes, Tristen touched the etched carving on the crypt.  Remembering the night, his existence changed forever.

They were enjoying an evening at the opera, when suddenly; Lucian’s cry for help pierced his thoughts.  Sensing his sudden change in demeanor, Margarita whispered. “We must help him, Tristen… for he cannot win this fight alone.”  Cursing the fates, he took his wife’s hand as they transformed into vapor.  Deep within, for some odd reason, fearing the evils they were about to face.

Scanning the night skies, they prepared themselves for battle.  Suddenly, the stench of death and decay filled their nostrils. Taking on human form, he and Margarita lunged toward their enemies.  At that moment, the merciless war between good and evil began.  As the blood-thirsty undead brought forth all their power the air shifted, unleashing a beast from the depths of hell.

Nearly robbed of all strength, they fought, refusing to surrender.  Lucian along side, his creator, Kara, he and Margarita, each of them, determined to protect mankind.  After what seemed like forever, the night turned quiet.  Until, Margarita’s cries pierced their thoughts.

Running to his wife, he wrapped Margarita in his arms. Her blood-soaked body robbing him of breath, mentally calling forth his powers, he attempted to heal the gaping wound within, her chest.  Screaming into the night, as her dying words pierced his mind. ‘Tristen… you must carry on—promise me, you will protect the innocent…’ Unable to deny her anything, she asked or wished, he agreed.  Regardless, her request condemned him to an existence in the midst of anguish.

Paralyzed within, he fought to return to the present.  Consumed with torment from the memories of that night, the vampire crushed Margarita’s wedding band between talon fingers.  Glancing at her scrolled name upon the stone monument, Tristen howled.  The pain of losing her, failing to keep her safe from harm the curse he’d bear forever…
