A woman desperate to escape her past. A disgraced vampire ready to prove he isn’t a monster, if only to himself. An encounter that will set their lives down a path neither were prepared to travel.

I’m Sydney Bryant - a loner and waitress at a vampire-themed nightclub. I’ve finally broken free from my past, but I can’t ignore the feeling deep in my bones that says something bad is coming for me.

From the moment Stellan first walked into Club Dead, I was intrigued by him. He’s tall, dark, and brooding, with a hint of danger and an intoxicating scent that makes me want to abandon my inhibitions and see what kind of excitement the alluring vampire might bring to my life.

When I reluctantly agree to meet with someone from my past, the evil I knew was coming for me finally arrives, and I’m shocked to find Stellan as part of the group determined to steal me away. But things aren’t always as they seem, and it isn’t long before the undeniable attraction between us ignites as he whispers promises that threaten to tear down the wall I’ve built around my heart. 

I’m Stellan, a recovering blood addict who has been sent by the vampire king of Velum Mortis to intercept the abduction of the cute waitress from Club Dead and deliver her to him instead of the wolves who have been stalking her.

But once I have Sydney close, I can’t deny the pull she has over me, and I refuse to hand her over to the king, determined to find out if the intensifying feelings I have for her means she’s my mate. But if she is, why haven’t I felt her presence before now? And why would fate pair me with someone who is something more than human?

I can give her everything she’s ever wanted and more if she’ll just take a leap of faith and trust me. But how can she ever move beyond the horrors of her past to realize she’s worthy of the epic love she’s always dreamed of?

I thought it was enjoyable

I didn't connect the same way I thought I would story line wise but it still was nice seeing the connection with the characters in the past book. I looking forward to book 3 hopefully that one is better. However its still a decent story for vampire romance lovers. 😊🧡😪
