Clio Farren is a bride in pursuit of the perfect venue for her wedding. More than that, she's searching for answers concerning her best friend's sudden death a year ago. She believes Raðljóst Manor holds the key to figuring it out. When Clio shuts herself in with the owner during an Arctic freeze, she unravels more secrets than she expected to in both Nikolai's manor and mind.

With his stash of demon blood running out and a beautiful, uniquely-scented woman poking around his manor, he may discover more thrumming through her veins than he bargained for.
