Book two of a new series set in the Shades and Shadows universe.

Before Laura’s father died, he drew gargoyles that had the bodies of men and the wings of dragons. He told Laura these creatures were created by magic and powerful enough to do or take whatever they wanted… Until the vampires came and destroyed them all. This was all make believe of course, but ever since Laura’s dad died, she can’t stop dreaming about his tales.

 Perhaps the new boy next door will serve as a distraction. Noah Scott has a physique of a Roman gladiator and hypnotizing gold and green eyes that are swoon-worthy. Unfortunately, his provoking, arrogant mouth causes Laura to call him several choice words upon meeting. 

Things can’t get more awkward when Noah’s sister turns out to be Laura’s Journalism partner. She and Laura attempt to cover a theft story on Palm Beach Island, but get attacked! The assailant comes face to face with Laura but appears to move at the speed of light; he leaves a trail of victims with neck wounds in his wake.

As she tries to piece together what she saw, her cryptic nightmares worsen. When a second attack occurs involving both Laura and sizzling bad boy Noah Scott, they may find they’ll need to work together to figure out what’s going on. That is if they don’t kill each other first.
