Title: Shadow's Claim
Author: Kresley Cole
Publisher: Pocket Books
Release Date: November 27th 2012
#1 New York Times bestseller Kresley Cole introduces The Dacians:
Realm of Blood and Mist, a new paranormal series following the royal
bloodline of Dacia, a vampire kingdom hidden within the Lore of the
Immortals After Dark.
Shadow’s Claim features Prince Trehan, a ruthless
master assassin who will do anything to possess Bettina, his beautiful
sorceress mate, even compete for her hand in a blood-sport tournament—
to the death.
HE WON’T BE DENIED
Trehan Daciano, known as the Prince of Shadows, has
spent his life serving his people—striking in the night, quietly
executing any threat to their realm. The coldly disciplined swordsman
has never desired anything for himself—until he beholds Bettina, the
sheltered ward of two of the Lore’s most fearsome villains.
SHE’S BOUND TO ANOTHER
Desperate to earn her guardians’ approval after a
life-shattering mistake, young Bettina has no choice but to marry
whichever suitor prevails—even though she’s lost her heart to another.
Yet one lethal competitor, a mysterious cloaked swordsman, invades her
dreams, tempting her with forbidden pleasure.
A BATTLE FOR HER BODY AND SOUL
Even if Trehan can survive the punishing contests to
claim her as his wife, the true battle for Bettina’s heart is yet to
come. And unleashing a millennium’s worth of savage need will either
frighten his Bride away—or stoke Bettina’s own desires to a fever pitch.
