Sometimes truth requires treachery... Impressed into the Roman army, vampire Vasilios of Sparta learned to lie, fight, and kill in order to survive. He also learned loyalty and valor. These lessons serve him well for eighteen centuries until he's banished from his clan and betrayed by the leader he called friend. An immortal without a cause. A chance encounter brings FBI Agent Anne Mathews into his life. The obstinate redhead is on a mission to save her sister. Without Vasilios' help, Anne will never find her, let alone survive. But when an old enemy resurfaces, Vasilios leads Anne into battle to settle a score of his own. Hell-bent on winning at any cost, Anne is no damsel in distress. It's a game of good vs. evil. And as Vasillios' passion for her grows, he'll be forced to choose between honor and the only woman to ever claim his heart.
