A pariah among paranormals, Peter is a demon who can touch the dead and read their last thoughts.
Headstrong and sensual as only werewolves can be, Ophelia is a forensic anthropologist called to shed some light on the remains of a young couple embraced for eternity.
Peter is sent to the site to help identify the dead, and when he meets Ophelia, her exotic beauty and sharp tongue pique his interest immediately.
Unfortunately, they soon become entangled in a nightmare in which enemies from several factions want him and Ophelia dead rather than let them discover the truth.
Will they survive a manhunt the likes of which Rome has never seen? But most of all, will Peter and Ophelia remain unscathed by the fire of their burning passion?
