Cryptic Trysts Kate Hill "Part of the Ancient Blood series." Three of the vampire Network's sexiest, most powerful agents are assigned to guard three unsuspecting human women from a ritual that could bring ultimate evil into the world.

Hard-driving love explodes when rugged military man Cody Dilorenzo disguises himself as heiress Joanna Winthrop's chauffer, hired to see to the lady's every fantasy. It's desire on the dance floor when Luke Keane, master warlock and enthusiast of the arts, poses as a stripper hired by Crystal Cole, a businesswoman who plans the hottest girls-only parties in New York City. Passion flies along with the punches when Sy Wooden, medical doctor and computer expert with a zest for competitive fighting, goes undercover as a klutzy karate student at Shirley "The Tiger" Johnson's school. Danger, love and bloodlust follow these unlikely couples in their quest to keep the world safe while satisfying their deepest passions.
