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?
While very rare, vampires and humans can form intimate bonds. If it's between lovers, their bond goes deeper than say a Master/student relationship (like Ambrose had with his Sire). And it's not something Nick wanted to happen. What woman would give up her future for a vampire? Yet he may have found that woman in Gwen. Welcome to love.
Nick rose from the couch as Gwen stood in the doorway to the living room. He sensed her nervousness, but also glimpsed determination in her eyes. She was out of her comfort zone, yet forged ahead. And she thought she was boring. How wrong she was.
With a few quick strides, he crossed the room. Standing before her, he resisted the urge to touch her. Not yet anyway. “What’s the verdict?”
For a moment, Gwen was quiet as she studied her fingers. “For this to go anywhere, I must trust you.” She raised uncertain eyes. “And while I believe you aren’t having sex with other women, you’re still around them in intimate settings. What if they’re more interesting than me? I can’t compete with them.”
“Nor should you. We share something deeper than a sexual attraction.” Nick tilted his head. “Vampires can form bonds with humans. That’s why you’re able to smell me. Because of this bond, I will never desire anyone save you. And vice versa.”
“Is this a common occurrence?” Gwen asked with cautious eyes.
“No, and it’s not something I imagined happening with me,” Nick answered. “Being Turned in 1840, that’s a lot of women to encounter. This never occurred with any of them.”
“So what does this mean?”
Nick wore a dry smile. “You won the monster lottery and became paired with a vampire.” And once he bit her, the Bond would be deepened. For both of them.
