d'Argent Honor . . . fine-tuned over a millennium to fight evil, its hunters are focused now on stopping an evil vampire in his mad quest for revenge on the d'Argent queen who refused his suit.
In self-imposed seclusion for centuries, Stefan d'Argent emerges to join the hunt. His assignment: to seduce the Fox's next intended victim in order to protect her. When Stefan sees Julie Quill, touches her, makes love to her, he realizes he puts his own heart at risk.
Vampire compulsion or lust at first sight-Julie doesn't understand the immediate, irresistible desire Stefan generates in her, but that doesn't matter. She loves him, believes his incredible story . . . and wants to join him in his shadow world. One erotic bite . . . one slip into vampiric ecstasy could make it happen.
But Stefan fears repeating the experience that sent him into seclusion centuries earlier, of killing the woman he loved while trying to convert her. A near-death experience tips the balance, giving him the courage to make her . . . eternally his.
