When a lobbyist opposed to vampires' rights is found drained of her blood, Special Enforcer Grace Alkins investigates the woman's connection to a local BDSM club and its vampire customers. It has been a long time since Grace played on this particular scene, but old habits return easily when she puts on the attire of Mistress Red.
On her first undercover visit at the club, however, she finds herself tricked into playing a scene with Ray, a submissive whose Master left town abruptly. The Dominant in her enjoys the opportunity – while the Special Enforcer is shocked to realize Ray is a vampire, and possibly a suspect for the murder she investigates.
Will Grace manage to keep a cool head and find the killer when every new meeting with Ray cranks up the heat a little more?

Kallysten is such a talented writer that I find I can enjoy reading anything that she has written, even when it is not my preferred genre. When given the opportunity to read this book, I was willing to do so (despite my misgivings) because, although there might be content which made me uncomfortable, I knew the writing would be good. I wish I could say that I liked the content, but I still find it hard to comprehend the appeal. However, I did like the characters and I think I understood their motivations. To be more specific, I felt that I understood Ray's issues, but I'm still not entirely clear on Grace's. Still, she was likeable because her intentions seemed to be focused on giving Ray what he needed and she understood him in a manner that fulfilled him in a way no one else could. She helped him to realize that because he was willing to give her his power he was really the one in control because it was his choice. Ultimately, I would have to say that Kallysten did a great job of conveying to me the potential psychological motivations that could drive someone to pursue a lifestyle that would cause me to run in the opposite direction. I must commend her for that because it takes a gifted writer to compel a reader to identify with and understand characters with whom there is no common ground. For that reason, I must recommend this book. For anyone who may be concerned that the "scenes" in this book could trigger something unpleasant, I don't think anything was too graphic or extreme. There was nothing sadistic about it, and for that I am deeply grateful.
