“Blood is thicker than water, that’s the old adage yeah? Family is everything to my Sweetcheeks. She lives and breathes it. I would do anything for my female, but some things are a bigger ask than others."--Commander Xavier Raige
Commander Xavier Raige is the leader of an elite team of soldiers-turned-mercenaries - and a super hybrid wolf. His entire life has been kept a well guarded secret, and with good reasons. It takes the love and devotion of his Alicia to help him face his past so that he can wipe out the ghosts that still haunt him. Alicia “Sweetcheeks” Carberletti is a Sanguis-Solis vampire and it takes all her strength, intellect, determination and love to discover what happened to fracture Xavier’s family so terribly and break down the walls that he has built up around him to let her in.
The mafia war is gearing up, and with all the personal battles that are going on, will control slip through their fingers, or can the tainted blood that binds them together give them the strength to fight back?
