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?
Hugo enjoys egging Marcus into becoming more irrational. Marcus has been rather pompous lately and Hugo wants to break him of that habit and teach him proper humility. What better way than having a pathetic human go up against a powerful vampire? Especially one who's Bonded...
Hugo’s ears picked up the sound of a car pulling into the driveway. No doubt Marcus and his drama. A text had come through earlier from him moaning about a register catastrophe or something. He didn’t care. He ignored most of what Marcus said. All he did was bitch like a woman. If he wasn’t so handy, he’d be done with him.
Opening the back door, Hugo watched as the stupid fool grumbled his way out of a black Camaro. Just another human attempting to hold onto their youth via a car. Like that ever worked.
“Goddamn technology.” Marcus stomped up the wooden steps. “It’s great as long as it works.”
“Very true.” Hugo stepped back to allow Marcus entrance. “And we have become extremely dependent upon it. It will be the doom of us all.”
They descended into the basement, the steps creaking quietly. As Hugo seated himself on the white leather couch, Marcus stalked to the bar to pour a shot of whiskey.
“I would have been here sooner, but we had a call-in. Then the register fucked up.” Marcus downed his shot. “Sometimes I hate being responsible.”
Hugo crossed a leg over the other. “Yes, I hear it is quite tedious at times.”
“Since I got up, I’ve been worrying over Gwen.” Marcus poured a fresh shot. “How can she date a bondage photographer? What the fuck is wrong with her?”
“I dare say Gwen needs your guiding hand with decisions.” Hugo resisted the urge to laugh at Marcus’s scowl. “Nick will undoubtedly use her for her looks. He is a photographer of naked women, after all.”
Marcus emptied the shot glass. “Yeah, that’s what worries me. She’s easy to manipulate.”
