The face of a killer, the heart of a lost child…
Konrad once led the legendary first team of Hungarian vampire hunters. Now, refusing to ally with the undead, he goes his own way, slaughtering vampires across the length and breadth of Europe.
The dying thoughts of one such vampire send Konrad to Britain in search of a dangerous instrument that might be just what he needs in his obsessive war with undead overlord Saloman – a war he’s determined to win at any cost. The only being who can lead him to the instrument and its current, evil possessor, is sexy, mysterious, young Glaswegian vampire Maggie, who holds herself aloof from her own kind.
Maggie sees much more than Konrad’s anger and cruelty. She makes it her mission to reach beyond the horrors of his past and find the man he should have been. Difficult, when he threatens her heart as well as everything she believes in; and when her whole being clamors for his body and his blood.
While journalists circle, about to break the news of vampire existence on mainstream television, Elizabeth Silk labors to give birth to Saloman’s daughter: and Maggie plays a dangerous game that risks everyone for her belief in one troubled man.

As we get into book 3 of the Blood Guilt series, we turn to the impending birth of Saloman & Elizabeth's child. The vampires learned of the baby in the last book and rallied to protect Elizabeth and child, at the same time showing allegiance to Saloman and Elizabeth.
But during the last book, we saw that Konrad had major issues and he was not willing to back down from his feeling about how the hunters should not align with the Saloman and vampires. He suffered tremendously at the hands of vampires long ago, but we only know of this because of Istvan who was the one to help him escape sure death.
So now we have Konrad, determined to fight for his beliefs, even against the beautiful Maggie. As the humans are starting to learn of the vampires' existence around them, Konrad needs to come to terms with who he was, is, and wants to be.
Ms. Treanor has brought us increasingly sexy and tension-filled loved scenes. That it happens between a human and vampire makes it even better. I'm glad to finally get to know how things turn out, they why of everything, and was happy about Konrad finally admitting that he was messed up but coming around.
"I have nothing but my fucked-up self, looking for answers and peace...but I wish you'd be my anchor and my joy in a rootless world. I wish I was yours."
And then she says, " There doesn't have to be a reason for love. It just is."
