Oliver King is her savior, a vampire who tries to show her the way. Through her journey she learns far more than she ever thought she would about herself, and about the past. Soon, she discovers that there is so much more to meeting Oliver than mere happenstance.

Blood at First Sight Series
With his heightened hearing, he detected a gentle pounding heartbeat and the rush of fluid through someone’s veins. His whole body tingled with an awareness he hadn’t felt in a long time. He scented blood, a sweet smell unlike any other, nectar he couldn’t help but crave. This was strong, so enticing he could almost taste it. He heard a soft, feminine tone over the cool autumn breeze just as his fangs began to drop. He tried to will back the urge just in case he caught the attention of a passerby.
“It was nice meeting you, Greg.”
He closed his eyes briefly, moved by an indefinable force. Perhaps her soft voice?
“Of course. Maybe we could go out again sometime?”
There was a brief silence and he wondered if the man was kissing her. For some reason, the idea made him want to do something drastic like rip into the bastard’s jugular vein. Oliver blinked. He didn’t even know the woman and he was jealous? He chalked it up to bloodlust, and despite an inner voice warning him away, he moved closer.
The couple stood on the sidewalk outside the restaurant, and they were virtually alone. He couldn’t see the woman clearly, and though she was just a shadow, his gaze raked over the outline of her curves displayed through her dress. He felt like a randy teenager. His hands cranked into claws at each side, and he fought to stay in one place and keep his fangs from dropping down in public. He’d rather avoid an employee or customer seeing him. That was a mess he didn’t need. He glanced back at the couple. This was madness, he thought, and still, he strained to hear anything at all, even though his advanced hearing had never failed him.
“Um…perhaps,” she finally answered, which in female terms was a definite ‘no, buddy, unless you seriously turn things around’, but this Greg guy might not know that.
“I’ll walk you to your car.”
“No, it’s all right. I can get there on my own.”
Bingo, he thought, as he sensed his introduction in a big way.
“Well, good night.”
The man was indistinguishable as well, but he turned stiffly and went to his car. Oliver only knew this because he followed the bastard with his gaze the whole way. When the beige Honda sped off, he heard a quiet chuckle and swung his head back toward her. The woman had turned and the lamplight above shone down on her, affording him an excellent view.
He hissed as he saw her petite, curvaceous frame and the long, dark brown, almost black waves spilling down her back. Her features appeared exotic with a golden tone to her skin, prevalent against the simple pale blue pleated dress and straw-colored sandals she wore. He wished he could see her eyes. She was incredibly beautiful, and he wanted to paint her delicate form. The only thing that made her more appealing was the scent drifting over, a combination of fine female with a hint of jasmine and an unidentifiable aroma. It was sweet like he’d thought but rare. As his instincts fired, he knew she was different, definitely human but something a little more…Other. He couldn’t quite place it.
Oliver wasn’t often surprised. But with this female, he sensed a new discovery had just fallen into his lap. A mystery worth exploring.
