At the latest nuptials, she sees a man she thinks is her guardian angel. Stunned soon afterward a drunk attacks her in the bathroom, but to her shock Sunni easily outmuscles the attacker. However, the bigger shocker, perhaps the greatest in her life occurs, when soon after the assault her guardian angel, who saved her years ago from a mugging, talks to her. Jacob has kept Sunni safe for years as he has kept her concealed from rouge vampires who would drink her special blood to gain her power. Jacob fell in love with her years ago, but knows if a rogue finds her he will accomplish the dark side of his mission by killing her. Now a rogue knows of her and attacks by going after her beloved LaForge family.
This exiting action-packed urban fantasy grips readers from the moment Sunni sees her guardian and never slows down until the final confrontation. The Willis universe seems genuine as miscegenation laws cause all sorts of complicated societal issues. However though Sunni is terrific as she holds the plot together and the villain is a nasty power grabber, Jacob makes the tale work with his angst of knowing he will kill his beloved if the rogue has a reasonable chance of taking her.
Sunni can't believe it. She also has a hard time believing that he appears just as a drunken sot decides to be a bit overzealous with her at the wedding. Again, the handsome man with eyes that glow like silver appears just as she's about to be harmed, disappearing just as quickly back into the crowd. Oddly enough, Sunni's own "strange" strength makes needing a hero somewhat unnecessary. Although she's now met Jacob Eddington, she's still unsure as to why he always seems to crop up. Is he a stalker?
Even her best friend, Isabel, is having strange "man-issues" in her life, too. Isabel and Sunni have been like sisters ever since they were at a psychiatric institute together when they were kids: Sunni had been placed there because of her "odd" abilities; while Isabel was fighting depression. Sunni, having no parents, became a fixture in Isabel and her family's life. In fact, Isabel's parents were kind enough to give her money and a chance to own her very own art gallery.Read more ›

She really wants to talk to her hero and ask him why he is always watching her. She thinks about him all the time.

When Sunni meets Richard she is attracted to his charm and good looks. Jacob and Richard have a centuries old history with one another. They despise each other greatly.Read more ›
