Aileen Slipsworthy, mild mannered children’s book writer, is attacked and nearly killed by a man who claims to be a vampire. She wakes transformed. Sure, she can see better, hear things she couldn’t before and perhaps fly. But does she want to be a vampire? Does she want to stay with this muscular, tall, freakishly sexy male who continues to call her his mate? Maybe. If the bribe is right.
Mykil Votad, moneyman for the Society and vampire, loses himself in the taste of his prey. Who would have guessed she had the Sumerian gene and would be his mate? Wanting to convince her that being a vampire isn’t so bad after all, he begins a campaign to show her that living is an adventure. And wait till he shows her how great the sex can be.
Friends dropping by unannounced, family members disappearing, old boyfriends hanging around with ill intent, and only the hours of the night to work with, Mykil must solve a mystery, teach Aileen how to survive as a vampire, and convince her to live – for him.
