Used to the painful loneliness life can sometimes bring, Dr. Gwenevere Ryan longs to experience life beyond her usually dull routine of lectures and grading papers. To this end, on a whim, she ventures out into the balmy night air of northwest Florida and ends up at the hottest nightclub Panama City has seen in decades, the Immortal.
Surrounded by denizens of youthful beauty, she meets four intriguing strangers whose peculiar mannerisms captivate her normally tame imagination. Soon Gwen’s asking questions like: Why am I so physically drawn to them? How do they seem to know what I’m thinking? What power do they hold over me?
Frightened and overwhelmed, she retreats from one lethal situation to another. Tumbling out of control, she is eventually rescued by the ever so mysterious Connor Blake. Soon, all her long standing defenses crumble under the weight of desire as she enters a world of secrecy, intrigue, and the supernatural. Eventually, in his arms, all her doubts give way to passionate hope for their future together.
However, this glimpse of true happiness is to be short lived. A dark force from Connor’s past reemerges, threatening to destroy their fragile love forever.
Gwen must choose whether to walk away unscathed or risk it all for a chance at eternal happiness. This is Ann Marie Knapp's debut novel.
