I go by Rose. But don’t let the delicate name fool you—I’m all thorns… The polished metal stakes strapped to my thighs have pierced the hearts of so many vampires I’ve lost count. And after five years I still haven’t found him—the vamp with one blue eye and one brown. The one who slaughtered my mother and left me, a child, to sit screaming in a pool of her still-warm blood.
I’m Jesenca. I refuse to be controlled. I grew up with my brother Johain, the Alpha of our pack. He thinks his word is the law. He arranged a mate for me and sent his enforcer Kalen to drag me back against my will from the life I built outside the pack. Kalen is a true wolf, fierce and honest. Kalen became enraptured by my will. I was drawn by his strength and pure heart.
