Two lost souls, one powerful connection. As a Dom for Club Moon, Nick Santos uses bondage to alleviate his anger at being forcefully changed. And when he meets Gwen Waters, his carefully controlled world is turned upside-down. Through her, he'll learn what true self-control is and that being a vampire has its benefits.
Freshly divorced from an abusive ex-husband, Gwen doesn't want another domineering man. But when she meets Nick, a world she only fantasized about is laid before her. Can she trust a Dom who's also a vampire? And can Nick be the man she deserves?
Since her father's death five years ago and her divorce, Gwen hasn't had any men in her apartment. Nick is the first one who hasn't been a domineering ass. And now that Gwen knows he runs a bondage club, new possibilities were open to her. And just when she finds a decent man, he's not even human...
“How did you learn to tie the women in your photos? Are you into BDSM?” Gwen cautiously asked as they walked towards her apartment. Nick wasn’t quite touching her as he strode alongside. Yet she craved his touch even knowing the truth. And a kiss. Those sculpted lips were so seductive. What was wrong with her?
“I help run a fetish club called Club Moon,” Nick replied casually at the front steps.
Gwen put the key in the lock. “So you’re a vampire photographer who runs a dungeon.” A soundless laugh escaped. “That’s a busy night.” Her heart pounded as Nick followed behind. Was she crazy for letting a vampire into her home? Yet she didn’t feel threatened by him. If anything, her attraction to him kept growing.
Nick chuckled. “Sometimes it seems that way.” He stopped Gwen. “Are you comfortable being alone with me? I can sense your nervousness.”
Gwen wore a dry smile. “I’d be anxious regardless of what you are.” She grew sheepish with averted eyes. “Like I said, you’re the first man in my apartment.” The pressure of his hand against her arm caused a pleasant ripple of goose bumps. Gwen hid disappointment when Nick’s hand slowly fell away.
“While Hugo hurts my cause,” Nick began in a lowered voice to avoid eavesdropping, “vampires aren’t out to hurt people. There are better things to do.”
“Like photography?” Gwen smiled, her tone naturally quiet as they started up the stairs. “And running bondage clubs?”
Nick inclined his head. “Amongst other things, yes.”
