In the vein of New York Times bestselling authors Larissa Ione, Jacquelyn Frank, and Jeaniene Frost comes the third installment in Cynthia Garner's Warriors of the Rift paranormal romance series.

With the next influx only six months away, the Council is hard pressed to keep the preternatural community safe. They decide to put together a team to investigate pret criminal Natchook's followers. Unbeknownst to them, Council member Tobias Caine is developing a team of his own.

The leader of Tobias's team is Finn Evnissyen, a demon bad boy who has what it takes to infiltrate Natchook's rogues. Finn is eager to help Tobias after he saved Finn's life in the past. And since Finn has never gotten along with the Council, he's happy to keep Tobias's secret.

The Council has assigned Fae warrior, Keira O'Brien, to head their efforts in bringing down Natchook's gang. Keira is determined to help the Council in order to prove her worth after a life of crime in the other dimension.

When Finn and Keira's paths cross, they can't deny the sparks that fly. Yet, once they discover they each have been working for opposing sides, they are forced to choose between each other and their duty to bring down a common enemy.
