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?
This is originally a text between Nick and Gwen, but italics don't translate very well and I apologize for the confusion. That's why there aren't any quotation marks. However, I really like this scene and the natural humor between them. Nick flirting with Gwen draws her out and she welcomes the fresh air. And soon, the sun will set and the real fun begins...
It’s Nick. Wanted to say hi. And I hate the sun.
Gwen smiled as she bounced out of the bathroom and into the bedroom. Thoughts of her mother were washed away as she fell onto the bed. Hi. You’re not asleep?
I don’t sleep all day, but I can’t go outside, either. Feels like I’m trapped sometimes, especially today.
Lying against the headboard, Gwen’s grin widened. Did that mean he missed her? Never had that happen before. What happens if you do go out into the sun? Will you turn to ash?
Lmao. No, although there are a few vampires that can tolerate it. My eyes are made for the dark, and daylight is blinding for me. I literally can’t see. When I drive at night, I wear sunglasses to help with headlight glare. And because I’m awesome that way.
Gwen laughed. Yes, you are. You certainly know how to make an impression on a girl.
Isn’t that my line?
I didn’t know you were a girl. Gwen liked this. Even though they were texting, it felt natural with Nick.
Ha ha. I knew there was some sass in there somewhere. You should use it more often. It’s sexy, just like the rest of you.
Gwen snorted. I don’t see myself as sexy lol. Although Nick had done an admirable job of making her feel that way. She hadn’t seen such longing for her before. Not in such an honest manner at any rate.
You’re kidding, right? You make me have inappropriate thoughts that would make you blush. No other woman has done that to me in nearly 200 years. None. Zero. Nada. Zip. Should I continue?
Another laugh came out of Gwen. No lol I get the point. She didn’t completely believe it, but if Nick felt that way, she wasn’t about to argue.
You challenge me even if you don’t realize it. I like that. It’s a difficult feat, I assure you. I’m looking forward to tonight. What new aspect of you will I see? It’s making me very impatient.
