“I would never have chosen to depend upon the taking of
blood for my very existence. What a profane act we perpetrate. I find the
thought repulsive and simultaneously intoxicating. But no matter how vile I
find the practice, the craving is akin to an addict’s dire compulsion for his
drug of choice, though much more intense. It cannot be completely controlled.”
Those are the words of Camden Garrett. He was turned on the
night he proposed to Karina Sinclaire, the woman who controlled him with a
loving, yet intense, discipline in 1910. After sunset the following day, he
drank human blood for the first time and then went to end his engagement and
tell Karina he had to leave without her. That decision led to a tragedy of epic
proportions that would haunt him for the rest of his unnatural life.
Just over a hundred years after that fateful night, with his
mind still set to avoid ever caring for another woman, Camden meets Melanie
Caine. Something intangible about her reminds him of Karina, and he’s drawn to
her. He’s overwhelmed with emotions, and he fights them with all the strength
he possesses, because of a desperate need to protect her… from himself.
His biggest fear is making the same mistake he made at the
Sinclaire estate so long ago. Will history repeat itself? Will Camden’s fear
prove valid? Is he capable of containing his all-consuming lust for Melanie’s
body and her blood?
“You are vampire. Drink blood, or you will die.”
