Dragon-warrior Vem lives in self-imposed isolation. Cursed by his toxic touch, he is deadly to anyone who has contact with him for too long. Set apart from others and hounded by intense loneliness, he craves the lasting connection he believes he cant possess. Until a chance encounter with a sultry mortal offers a ray of hope...Evelyn Foxe is the woman of Vem's every desire, but she's too busy running from the Russian mob to think about love. As she accepts Vem's offer to help her escape her precarious situation, she's skeptical, afraid that he's in league with those sent to harm her. But when a biological weapon is unleashed in her hometown, Evelyn is forced to trust Vem-or risk the dangers of going it alone. Will they survive the firestorm that rages around them? And can they pull from the ashes a love that will defy all the odds and last through the ages?
