Two lost souls, one powerful connection. As a Dom for Club Moon, Nick Santos uses bondage to alleviate his anger at being forcefully changed. And when he meets Gwen Waters, his carefully controlled world is turned upside-down. Through her, he'll learn what true self-control is and that being a vampire has its benefits.
Freshly divorced from an abusive ex-husband, Gwen doesn't want another domineering man. But when she meets Nick, a world she only fantasized about is laid before her. Can she trust a Dom who's also a vampire? And can Nick be the man she deserves?
Going after another vampire's Donor is a major faux pas. They wear a black leather bracelet with a silver moon to signify their position. Most vampires don't like sharing and harassing their Donor will certainly cause a fight. This is what Hugo did and was banned from Club Moon as a result. And now that he revealed Nick's true nature to Gwen, his sins keep adding up. And his punishment won't soon be forgotten...
Gwen felt the threat of another yawn. “Today will last forever.” She wished Nick would touch her already. His fingers were just out of reach.
“I agree.” Nick’s gaze turned impish. “And once I’m here? I can think of a few compromising positions I’d like to see you in.”
Another blush came to Gwen’s cheeks. Maybe due to not having sex for over two years, all she thought about was a nude Nick pleasuring her with his straining erection. And for heaven’s sake, why hadn’t he kissed her again?
Nick interrupted Gwen’s hedging. “How about this? You tell me when I arrive.” After she nodded, he added, “Just an FYI about vampire bites… Once I taste your blood, I can track you anywhere you go. I want you aware of this.”
A grateful smile curved Gwen’s lips. “Thanks for telling me. Are all vampires this considerate?” Had Nick read her mind about the growing desire to be bitten?
“If they’re smart,” Nick replied. “Some don’t care and give the rest of us a bad reputation.”
“Like the creepy guy in the park?” Gwen grimaced. “I wouldn’t want to be alone with him.”
“Hugo broke a cardinal rule amongst vampires.” Nick’s eyes turned ominous. “We never reveal another vampire to a human. It risks unwanted exposure to our community. The less humans are cognizant of us the safer we are.” And once Gabe and Ambrose knew about Hugo’s stupidity they’d be furious. Dumb fuck deserved whatever happened to him.
“So what will happen to him?”
“Nothing unless I confront him about it, and with Club Moon, I have to be careful.” Nick shook his head. “Hugo repeatedly broke rules so we banned him from the club. He’s miffed about it and wanted to fuck with me. Unfortunately, it involved you, which is unacceptable.” Going after a vampire’s Donor was a universal no-no, but Hugo believed himself above such rules. He had known who Ana belonged to, but hell if he cared. And Nick suspected Hugo had purposely harassed her just to get under his skin.
“Are you mad that I’m aware of the truth?”
“No, but I would have preferred to reveal what I am in private and not terrify you.” Nick brushed Gwen’s cheek. “There are better things to discuss than Hugo.”
She bobbed her head. “I agree.”
Nick let his fingers trail down Gwen’s cheek. “Have I mentioned how much I enjoy kissing you?” And he would never get enough of her.
