Amber Quill, 2003
Recently turned eighteen, Heather Kinkaid was heading home with her date when she saw what seemed to be a man on the lonely mountain road. That night the first visit of her "dream-beast" occurred in her dreams. The creature came on other occasions too until her concerned parents returned with her to their year round DC home. For the next six years, Heather never returned to the family summer cabin and during that time no visitations happened.
With her mom dead from uterine cancer and her dad killed four months later in a vehicular accident that she knows was suicide, Heather struggles with her grief. However, she returns to the cabin to prepare it for sale. Almost upon arrival, she begins to see the telltale signs of her dream-beast. The next day someone tries to run her off the road, but a bird that changes into her dream-beast saves her. As she gets to know Devin, someone wants to use her as an expendable pawn to kill him. She would do anything just like he would to keep her beloved from harm, but she also wonders can a vampire and a human cross species even when love blossoms between them?
