The year is 3048, Earth is no longer habitable, and man has fled to the stars where they’ve discovered the secret of immortality—Meridian. Unfortunately, the radioactive mineral is exorbitantly expensive and only available to a select few. A new class comprised of the super rich and immortal soon evolves. The Collective, as they’re called, rule the universe.
Two-thousand-year-old Ricardo Sanchez, vampire and rogue pilot of the space cruiser, El Cazador, can’t resist two things: gorgeous women and impossible jobs. When beautiful Skylar Rossaria approaches him to break a prisoner out of the Collective’s maximum security prison on Trakis One, Rico jumps at the chance. Being hunted by the Collective has never been so dangerous–or so fun!

Rico bit back a laugh. She clearly expected him to jump on her at any moment and latch onto that pretty neck. Not that the idea hadn’t occurred to him. With that thought, he had to push down the hunger. He didn’t want to scare her.
Well not just yet. He always found a little fear spiced up the blood.
It had been a long time since he’d wanted something this much. Maybe it was because she was an interesting combination of toughness and vulnerability. Earlier, he’d sensed her attraction and her confusion. She obviously wasn’t used to either feeling, and that intrigued him.
An impossible job and an intriguing woman—what more could a man ask for?
He unbuckled the strap that held his back scabbard and pulled it off, placing the sword on the floor.
Skylar stared at him suspiciously.
“Just getting comfortable,” he said.
He reached into his pocket and drew out a silver flask, held it up to her, and shook it so the liquid inside sloshed from side to side.
“Oh,” she muttered.
“You sound almost disappointed.”
She frowned. “Of course not.”
He pulled two glasses from the cabinet above the desk and poured them both a shot. Picking up his, he gestured to Skylar to do the same. She inspected the amber liquid as though she suspected it might be poison but lifted the glass to her lips and took a small sip. She blinked and put the glass down, her eyes watering.
“What is that stuff?” There was a slight catch in her voice.
“Whiskey,” he said. “An old Earth drink. I get it made specially.”
He drained his glass and poured himself a second. Sinking onto the sofa opposite her, he watched as she took another tentative sip and licked a bead of whiskey from her lips. His gaze fixed on her mouth as the hunger stirred inside him. Leaning closer, he breathed in the scent of warm woman. “Tell me all about yourself, Skylar Rossaria.”
Scavenger Hunt Quote: “I’d bet my right fang she’s more at home with a gun than a lipstick.”
Nina Croft grew up in the north of England. After training as an accountant, she spent four years working as a volunteer in Zambia, which left her with a love of the sun and a dislike of nine-to-five work. She then spent a number of years mixing travel (whenever possible) with work (whenever necessary) but has now settled down to a life of writing and picking almonds on a remote farm in the mountains of southern Spain.
Nina’s writing mixes romance with elements of paranormal and science fiction.
