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?
Being an introvert myself, I understand Gwen's perspective. Voicing inner thoughts is a monumental task at times, especially when it concerns a handsome Dom. Regardless, Gwen pushes herself forward. When it comes to business she's fearless. But with men, not so much. Time for that to change...
“I sense your nervousness.” Nick trailed a finger down Gwen’s cheek. “What do you wish to do?”
Gwen’s mouth filled with cotton as she tried to respond to the question. As an introvert, voicing inner thoughts wasn’t easy. Plus, having parents and a domineering husband who didn’t want her opinions deepened the silence. She had to wonder how much patience Nick really had.
What she sought was Nick kissing her. She’d been thinking that the whole evening. From his heated stare, he wouldn’t object and certainly wasn’t about to laugh at her.
“This may sound crazy considering I just found out you’re a vampire,” Gwen started with hesitation, her gaze unable to meet Nick’s. “But I want you to kiss me.”
Nick lifted her chin up. “And I prefer you not averting your gaze.”
She wore a wry expression. “Force of habit.”
“Yes,” Nick whispered into her ear. “And I will break you from it.”
He brushed his lips over hers, distracting Gwen from any apprehension. The luxurious sensation of his mouth took her breath away as her hands rose to his shoulders. In response, his hand circled her waist, pulling her closer to him.
His natural dominance came through, and she gladly let him take the lead. He teased her with his tongue until she allowed the kiss to deepen. The world fell away as his erotic mouth sent heat between her legs. She sighed as she gave herself over to him.
