Tor Burns is a non-infected vampire who has taken refuge in the Tack Enterprises underground facility. Having survived a vicious attack with his fellow vampire Harrow, he now has a new purpose. Vampires afflicted with Gates Syndrome are still being hunted, and Tor is committed to saving them from the clutches of the Vampire Council. With a semi-cure within their grasp, Tor is reluctant to accept his new assignment: bodyguard to Allison Tack, the daughter of their fallen leader. Armed with an abrasive personality and fierce loyalty, Tor approaches this new responsibility with serious determination despite his reservations.
Vampire Allison Tack is the beautiful and timid co-heir of the Tack fortune. Infected and hunted by the Council, those lucky enough to have known her father are determined to keep her safe. A walking target wherever she goes, Allison wants to learn how to protect herself, but no one is listening. Sick of being the helpless one in the company of trained fighters around her, Allison vows to prove that she can fight alongside the best of them.
Meanwhile, the harem leader, Melissa, is hell-bent on unraveling any clue about her son Demetrius’s fate. He disappeared without a word, and time has made her desperate. Stepping up her efforts, she seeks the help of Demetrius’s son, Zane. With the additional manpower, Melissa finds the lair of the suspected vampires and wages war against them.
Thrown together by necessity, Tor and Allison can’t continue to deny their attraction to each other. Tor wants to give in to his feelings for her, but old demons resurface. He must confront the past to prevent losing the best thing that ever happened to him.
A life must be given for a life taken. Will Tor have to sacrifice himself before Allison pays the price?

Tormented is an amazing follow up to Hunted. I have to say that this Vampire world keeps getting better and better as we delve into the crux of things. There is so much going on and beneath the secrets and the lies when things come to the forefront all hell breaks lose.
Allison is still trying to get over the loss of her father Pritchard Tack. Her father was close to finding the cure to this horrible disease that is killing the vampires. With Gates Syndrome killing the vampires Pritchard came up with a semi cure that could help prolong the lives of the infected vampires but was killed before he could complete his research. Now his daughter is left alone and the people who loved her father are willing to do whatever it takes to save her from the clutches of the council. They decide to higher Tor Burns who is a fierce alpha who will do anything to keep Allison safe.
At first Tor is torn because he has a bad feeling about protecting Allison but as time goes on the closer they get Tor realizes he is having real feelings for her and that can't happen because he has demons he has to fight and no matter what he has to keep his head on straight in order to protect her from the council who is hunting her down. See Goran has his sights set on the prize and no matter what anyone says or does he is determined to rid the world of the infected vampires. But Goran has some serious stuff going on in his life because his wife Melissa is looking for her son Demetrius who has disappeared and she wants to know where he is and she will stop at nothing to find him so she enlists the help of her grandson Zane. But Goran is determined to stop her because what she will find out will destroy them and cause war. But a mother's love knows no boundaries or obstacles and when Melissa uncovers the truth all hell breaks lose.
This is a great follow up top Hunted and I need more! I need the next book like ASAP!
