  New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Cynthia Eden invites readers to a dark paranormal world...

Vampires exist. So do werewolves. The creatures that you fear in the darkness? They’re all real. And the baddest of the paranormals…those who love to hurt humans…they’re sent to Purgatory, the only paranormal prison in the U.S.

His job is to stop the monsters.

Deadly forces are at work within Purgatory. The monsters are joining together—and their plans have to be stopped. FBI Agent Shane August, a very powerful vampire with a dark past, is sent into the prison on an undercover assignment. His job is to infiltrate the vampire clan, by any means necessary.

She wants to help the prisoners.

Dr. Olivia Maddox wants to find out just why certain paranormals go bad. What pushes some vampires over the edge? Why do some werewolves turn so savage? If she can understand the monsters, then Olivia thinks she can help them. When she gets permission to enter Purgatory, Olivia believes she is being given the research opportunity of a lifetime.

Olivia doesn't realize that she’s walking straight into hell.

To survive, they have to rely on each other.

When the prisoners break loose, there is only one person—one vampire—who can protect her, but as Olivia and Shane fight the enemies that surround them, a dark and dangerous passion stirs to life between the doctor and the vamp. Shane realizes that Olivia is a woman carrying secrets—powerful, sinful secrets. Secrets that a man would kill to possess.

And Olivia realizes that—sometimes—you can’t control the beast inside of you. No matter how hard you try. Some passions can push you to the very limits of your control…and the growing lust that she feels for her vampire…it’s sending her racing right into a deadly storm of desire.

Welcome to Purgatory…a place that’s a real hell on earth…

*NOTE: Intended readers are only 18+ due to steaming hot scenes and violence

If wolves have an alpha, then Shane August is the vampire version.
Stronger than the rest, Shane has lived for a thousand years and is now recruited by the Paranormal Unit in Seattle to monitor the paranormal prison, Purgatory. He was to report from the inside out by posing as a prisoner but what he does not expect is the Hot Doc that could possibly ruin his cover or seep through his skin and into his heart.

Olivia, a grad student currently taking her PhD in criminal psychology, wanted to learn more about the criminal mind: what makes them do what they did and who they currently are. And yet, she herself, in the depths of her subconscious, is hiding something; something dark and terrifying.

Personally, vampires held no appeal, especially those of the Edward Cullen kind.
Right until Shane became known to me.
He is just so friggin' hot!
He can bite me anytime. Lol. Kidding
This book has been sizzling from the start, in the middle right until the end.
So be sure to be in close proximity with a fan.
Or read this in an airconditioned room.

Marked by the Vampire is a must-read for those looking for more than the usual glittering, brooding vampires, those in favor of more action with a really generous siding of romance and a whole lot of paranormals to boot.
And with a vampire like Shane, who knows..
You just might want to cross over to the dark side

Marked by the Vampire is the second book in the series Purgatory. 
This can be read as a stand-alone novella to the first one and the third book.
"I like the way you smell" he told her, and she felt the slight movement of his mouth against her ear as he whispered "I didn't expect to find something so sweet on my way to hell."
