When four strangers move into Blackpool Cove the same week a tragic shipwreck befalls its shores, Trixie Muldoon waves it off as coincidence. Even the arrival of the appealing, young investigator, David Durham, does not convince her otherwise.
But when a girl disappears, it’s obvious something sinister has gripped the quiet, coastal town, and it all leads back to the town’s newest inhabitants, including the mysterious Beck Ryker.
Everything about Beck Ryker, his scarred face, his hypnotic gaze, his seemingly tortured past, says heartbreak and regret. Yet Trixie finds herself drawn to him.
But when the tangle of secrets surrounding Beck unravels, Trixiefinds herself caught between terror and passion. 

Trixie, a young girl, living in a small village gets pulled into a tale of danger and lust. When four strangers come to the villiage after a ship wreck that has no survivors, trouble descends the villiage.
Two of the men are well presented, the perfect of gentlemen as such. The other two could not be more opposite. Shabby with that rough edge that would make people avoid them. Beck, one of the shabby men, however dangerous he seems, takes the interest of Trixie, who can tell whether someone has good or bad intentions by reading their colours. Those being something she has always been able to sense, wanting to find the man whose colours, along with hers, mix and create something special. Somehow Beck appears to be that man even though everything about him is warning her to not get too close. Beck is more dangerous than Trixie realises and as she falls for him it becomes clear that his arrival along with the others, was related to the ship wreck and that other things have been planned for the villiage. These strangers are not what they appear to be, are they even human? Can someone not being human change your feelings if you're falling for them? Trixie, with her pet pelican is the person to find out the secrets and choose whether Beck's pull on her, is lust or something different, danger.
 This is a different take on the vampire genre, something that could change your view on it. Characters that are sturdy, a story full of passion and intrigue, streaked with danger and excitement.
