The vampires of New York City are breathing easier after the demise of the tyrannical former head of the Vampire Council, Goran. Under Rohnert, the revered and newly ascended leader, their future looks promising. However, an unknown enemy is manipulating events, killing humans and vampires alike, and exposing their secrets to the human world.
This is bad news for new vampire Cyrus and his band of fighters at Tack Enterprises. Events derail his plans to find Zane, the sadistic vampire who tortured Cyrus and forced immortality on him. Armed with hatred deep in his bones, all Cyrus cares about is getting even, and Zane has it coming. Cyrus soon finds himself torn between the crippling desire for revenge and his responsibility to his friends. When he begins to spend time in the company of the beautiful and pureblooded vampire, Isidora, her presence in his life makes him rethink his priorities.
Isidora is able to read minds. The thoughts she hears from the respected and irresistible vampire, Cyrus, are filled with both anger towards Zane and a deep admiration for her. Being closeted all her life, Issy has no idea what to do in the face of the outside world’s war, death, and challenges. One thing is clear. She craves Cyrus, but his need for vengeance is clouding his mind. After discovering a previously hidden family member and being called to serve the Council, Issy is at a crossroads in her life and struggles to find the right path.
Both vampires face tough choices. Should Issy pursue her feelings for Cyrus or wait until he can return her affection? Will Cyrus deny his attraction to Isidora so he can kill the man who made his life a living hell on earth? Every decision leads to a reckoning.
With Isidora in his arms, Cyrus found comfort from the torture of his nightmares and his past. The warmth of her touch and the sweetness of her kisses made him think of nothing but the present and the desire he had long denied.
Cyrus had no idea how to take things between them. He had given her rough sex because he had been a jealous ass. If he’d been thinking clearly, he wouldn’t have done it. Yet he had given in to the intense need to possess her. Maybe, if he took things slow and started from the beginning, he could make do with the little kisses and touching. However, the tenting inside his pants was a cause for concern. It didn’t take long for her to notice.
Issy broke their kiss and smiled up at him. She had that gleam in her eyes, the kind that told him she knew what he was thinking. He rotated his hips, trying to create room between their bodies, but she refused to let him go.
“This is a good time to see if we can work things out.”
“Damn it,” Cyrus muttered. Was he ready? The answer was out of his hands. With the massive wood he was sporting, even a long dip in an icebox wouldn’t chill him out. His body needed Issy, and there was no doubt she wanted him, too.
“Cy, you can take charge of everything. We’ll go at your pace and on your terms. I’m here to enjoy the ride.”
This made him smile. “Even if the ride is bumpy?”
“As long as I’m with you.” She tightened her arms around his waist. “I don’t care how rough, how easy—just take me with you.”

~~CONNECT WITH THE AUTHOR~~
Reckoning, the fourth installment of The Gates Legacy saga picks up the story of Harrow Gates and his unlikely band of brothers and friends as they try to rid the Vampire community of the dreaded disease Incomis Sippanus also known as Gates Syndrome. The disease that Harrow unwittingly spread to the vampire race. He continues his mission to wipe out the disease just as his mentor Pritchard Tack had made it his goal before his death.
Harrow is not alone in this fight. Tack Enterprises is full of his vampire and human friends who are ready and willing to fight right alongside him in his quest. They will never give up and never back down until the disease is eliminated no matter what the cost to themselves. They have finally found the cure; Rohnert’s half human/half vampire child carries the cure in his blood. Now they have to get the cure to everyone who is afflicted but it’s not going to be easy.
Their enemies have their own plans to carry out. Rehvenge and greed fuel their desire to spread the disease and to take the leadership of the Vampire Council away from Rohnert. These enemies are building their own army and have unlimited funds at their disposal to carry out their awful plan. There are also other forces that the Council would have never imagined behind this plot to take them over and the revelation will rock their beliefs.
Cyrus, everyone’s go-to guy, is fighting a battle of his own. He is torn between his responsibilities to Tack Enterprises and his desire for revenge against Zane, the vampire who tortured him while he was human and later turned him into a vampire. Nightmares are a regular visitor and sleep is getting to be non-existent, which gives him plenty of time for two things: thinking of ways to get his revenge on Zane and to obsess about the new girl in the compound, Isidora. He battles his feelings for her because everything about him is tainted; ruined. Isidora is beautiful, innocent and pure. He is convinced that she can never be with him because of the past that eats away at him constantly.
Isidora was raised in the old traditions of the vampire race and was closed away by her father to protect her and keep her safe from Goron. Now that everyone she had ever loved is gone she lives in the facility with Harrow and the others. She is as isolated in the facility as she was in her home with her father and getting used to the difference in the way of life here keeps her unsure of herself. She is trying to find her place and has found it in mastering handguns under Cyrus’ private tutelage. He is the best teacher and the kindest man she has ever met but she knows that he is struggling. Her mind reading capabilities make it impossible for her to ignore his terrible dreams that haunt him each day. She longs to comfort him but he keeps pushing her away.
With all the drama going on around them, how will they ever find a place in each others lives? Can Isidora heal Cyrus’ heart enough for him to forgive his tormentor and trust the love that she feels for him? Will the disease be wiped out or will the Vampire Council be the one that is erased?
