Prima Ballerina Natalie Heyward never saw the man who attacked her and her partner with lightning speed and brutal force one moonless night. Physically unharmed but inwardly shattered, Natalie throws herself into Charleston Ballet's new performance, but the ballet's enigmatic benefactor, Julian Mouret, undermines her contrived defenses. Why does her attraction for this handsome stranger feel illicit? Something in him calls to her and she can't just pirouette away.
Vampires are fed by one source and unified by one law: to protect the secret of their true existence or face execution. Neither Julian's power as a ruling vampire nor his place in Charleston society could prevent the savage incident that put Natalie's life in his hands. He must kill her before his betrayal of the secret claws its way out of her memory. But he can't forget the heat of Natalie's body, pressed full length against his on that fateful night. Unable to resist the lush curve of her lips and the sensual promise in her brilliant eyes, Julian's playing for time in the riskiest game of his life.
