Caught in Queen Magritte's snare and forced to wed someone he loathes, Lord Valadon, King of the vampires in New York, enlists the aid of two of his most powerful allies to thwart the plans of the Queen of All Vampires. Learning that his son survived, but unable to ascertain his whereabouts, he will call upon his trusted friends to locate the one person who can stop his upcoming marriage.
Meanwhile, Remare's return is hardly what Miranda has been dreaming about. With her association with Guy de Montglat revealed, her relationships with Remare and Valadon become strained. If she wants to keep her dreams alive, she will have to choose who to give her oath of loyalty—to her own bloodline or to the vampire who holds her heart.
Everyone has secrets, right? Remare knows this, but the secrets Miranda has been keeping threaten to tear them apart. Only through trust can their love survive. Now he must find a way to earn her trust or risk losing her forever. A situation that will not bode well for House Valadon.
