Alexander Karim, long-time friend of Brody, Veris and Taylor, has been questioning everything; his purpose in life and his identity as a vampire and a doctor. Even his long time pursuit of the lovely but reluctant police lieutenant Sydney Stevens is on shaky ground.
Life tosses him a curve ball when Alex learns that Brody's trial lawyer, Rayner De Leon, the youngest appeal court judge in the state, is attracted to Alex. Rayner is a vampire, Rafael, who has known Brody and Veris since the fifth century. Alex warily allows Rafael to seduce him, and the affair has surprising results for both of them.
But then a deliberate hit and run tosses Sydney back into Alex's life and this time, her defenses are down and she is vulnerable. But there are unanswered questions surrounding Sydney. Who tried to kill her? And why is she insisting that Alex was there, when he doesn't remember it that way?
When a kiss sends Alex and Sydney back to Alex's beloved desert, and he realizes that Taylor is not the only one who can time travel, the questions pile up like gunpowder. The flint that strikes the spark is Sydney's past, which is exposed when Rafael reaches through time and uncovers her dangerous secret.
The explosion that follows is both deadly and tragic, reaching out to touch everyone's lives.

A Vampire Time Travel Menage Romance
Praise for Kiss Across Deserts:
I loved learning more about Alexander and especially loved watching him struggle with his relationship between Sydney and Rafe.
I love Tracy's writing style and the vampire/time-travel always draws me in to the point of neglect for everything else around me.
I always wanted Alex to have his own story and now he has.
I just couldn't put it down once I started it, but who needs sleep?!
I really enjoyed the distinct highs and lows in this book. I need that balance, and somehow when one or more characters are really feeling heartbroken, it makes it so much more meaningful when things work out.
The ending is pure drama with passionately poignant heat and touches of wonder that is absolutely fantastic.
I was so excited when I heard Alexander was getting his own book and it didn't disappoint. I've had a crush on him since he was first introduced.
Flat out, Tracy Cooper-Posey writes some SEX-AY men. Alexander and Rafael get high HIGH marks for sheer smolderability.
