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?
Much to Gwen's relief, Nick doesn't sleep in a coffin. That'd make for cramped sleeping. She does wonder what his bed looks like? Is it a Gothic masterpiece or simple wooden platform? Whatever the style, this is the first time since her divorce she's actually interested in another man's bed. And Nick won't mind her in it...
Nick’s garnet eyes made Gwen feel desirable for the first time. She’d never seen such blatant desire that went deeper than physical need. The passion Nick put into his kisses outweighed anything Marcus had done during their entire marriage. And for once, she hungered for more.
“Now I really don’t want you to leave.” Gwen ran a hand along Nick’s strong jaw. The firm pressure of his hand against her leg caused a heart flutter. She regretted not removing her pantyhose earlier. The nylon diluted the sensation of his naked hand skimming over her bare flesh. He needed to move upwards and under her dress.
“Neither do I,” Nick replied softly. “If I didn’t need to go underground to sleep, I’d stay.”
“Do you sleep in a coffin?” Gwen asked with a hinting smile.
Nick laughed. “No, I own a bed.” His eyes turned gloomy. “That will be emptier with just me in it.”
Gwen nodded, her mood matching Nick’s. “Same here.” Another yawn threatened. Although she fought to suppress it, he caught it.
“You need sleep,” Nick stated, leaning back from Gwen. “I don’t want to leave, but I have to.”
