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?
Vampires don't always bite people to drink their blood. In sexual situations, their bite is surface only and the little bit of blood is enough for a vampire to taste the essence of their lover. Once a vampire tastes a person's blood, they have a minor bond with them. They can be tracked anywhere by the vampire, but only for a short time.
With Nick and Gwen, that ability goes both ways and its permanent. And once they have sex, their connection goes to a whole new level...
“How much blood will you take?” Gwen sensed Nick’s intense gaze on her. He watched her every move. She’d never had someone pay such attention to her.
“Just enough to wet my tongue,” Nick answered. “I want a taste, not to feed from you. The marks are small and easily hidden.”
Gwen glanced over her shoulder. “Like having a hickey?”
Nick chuckled, slipping off his shoes outside the bedroom door. “I can make them appear that way.”
“No need to give the guys at the shop gossip fodder.” Gwen softly laughed. “You think I blush a lot now.” It occurred to her that Nick was the first man in her bedroom. And he wasn’t even human.
“I’ll keep the bite low,” Nick said with a light smile.
A full body tremble started in Gwen as they crossed the threshold to her bedroom. Worried thoughts filled her head. No man had ever put his mouth on her in such a personal manner. What if she frustrated him with her lack of experience?
“I can feel your nervousness.” Nick took her hand and brought her fingers to his lips. “There is nothing to be embarrassed about. Simply enjoy what I’m doing to you. I want this, too.”
“That won’t happen.” Nick brushed his lips over Gwen’s mouth as his hands grasped her waist. “I desire all of you, not merely your blood.” His mouth closed over her with a fiery kiss that took their breath away.
