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?
Since Marcus, Gwen's ex-husband, knows what Nick is, he also knows how to hurt him. And armed with a silver switchblade, he plans a nasty attack...
“I’m not afraid of you.” Marcus bore a nasty smile as he approached Nick. “I can hurt you.”
Nick’s crimson eyes narrowed as he pushed Gwen behind him. There was a switchblade in Marcus’s hand, but wasn’t open yet. The worse Marcus could do was stab or slash him. It wouldn’t kill him, but would hurt like hell. Then he’d have an excuse to beat the shit out the asshole, preferably when Gwen wasn’t present.
Gwen attempted to move around Nick, but he blocked her. “I don’t want you two fighting.” Her voice was full of irritation as she peeked over Nick’s arm, holding her phone. “Maybe it’s time to call the police.”
Marcus stepped back as if worried Gwen would carry out the threat. “No, I don’t want them involved.” He stood a few feet away from Nick, well within striking distance. “I’ll leave.”
Without warning, Marcus whipped his arm out as the silver blade from the switchblade flipped out. It sliced through Nick’s shirt and across his abdomen. Nick roared as he stumbled back, burning agony eating his skin. A red stain quickly spread over his front as fury filled him.
Gwen screamed as she threw herself in front of Nick before he could stop her. Only Hugo’s sudden appearance and pulling Marcus back kept her from feeling the bite of the deadly knife. Hugo plucked the switchblade away before any more damage might be done with it.
“The point has been made,” Hugo said, hauling Marcus with him. “Time to leave before the neighbors interfere.”
