This story brings Russell and Jia together because they both have a vengence to kill Master Han.
Master Han had left Russell in a coma for 40yrs and he mutilated Jia's family so they couldn't reborn!

They find out who Master Han is and that floors Russell like nothing else! This is the surprise ending that you don't expect at all!

This also happens because Jia wakes into her second life and must mate. And she wants it to be Russell. They declare their feelings for each other and another scene comes. Both scenes are detailed.
As this is the final book in the series, of course the worst happens and Jia gets kidnapped by the demon Darafer and taken to Hell.
That brings in the Heavenly characters that help to defeat Darafer and make things right in the vampire world.
And of course Jia and Russell marry and everything ends happily ever after!! Lots happen though, so you need to read it to know what all happens.
The story is a fun and entertaining story. The whole series has been a joy to read.
