21-year old Ruby struggles to navigate the social hierarchy at the private academy where she teaches and is shunned by her co-workers. Hopelessly awkward, Ruby accepts her loneliness, until the night she comes face to face with Devon Slaughter-tall, dark and deadly. With only fractured memories of his past, Devon doesn't know who (or what) he has become. He possesses strange powers: paranormal strength and speed, the ability to seduce a woman with a single touch. But he doesn't know why. And what Devon doesn't know can hurt Ruby. Incapable of human feeling, he is designed to put his dark needs before all else. As Ruby grows weaker, Devon grows stronger. Yet somewhere-buried deep-fragments of his shattered humanity remain. Is Devon still human enough to save Ruby from himself? Or will the monster inside him claim both their souls?
