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?
Gwen knows she has to believe Nick or their relationship will go nowhere. But how do you trust a vampire who's intimate with other women? All she has is his word. Yet she doesn't feel deceived by him, not like her ex-husband, Marcus. She also knows that as a Dom, Nick doesn't have patience for deception. He expects her to be truthful with him, and vice versa. For once Gwen doesn't feel used. Nick isn't into total domination like Marcus or her mother. There's freedom being with Nick she hasn't felt before. And they've only just begun...
A coy smile formed on Gwen lips. “Well, at least you’re not dead and are pleasant to look at.”
Nick chuckled. “I’m glad I’m agreeable.”
“How does a Bond form? Is it always between a human and vampire?”
“Generally. And as to how a Bond forms? That’s a question we have yet to find an answer to.”
“Does it bother you?”
Nick brushed his fingers over Gwen’s soft cheek. He saw the doubt in her eyes, but he spotted a cautious optimism. She wanted to believe him, but was finding it difficult to do. “No, not at all. I just hope I live up to your expectations.” He tucked a lock of blonde hair behind her ear. “I worry you may regret being with me. There’s a lot you’d have to sacrifice, and I don’t know if I’m worth that.”
“You’re stealing my lines.” Gwen delicately placed a hand on his shoulder as she looked up at him. “It will take time for me to fully trust you, but I’m willing to take the chance. We are meant to be together after all.”
One of Nick’s hands circled her waist. “My bite will deepen the connection between us. What we already feel will be amplified.”
“I definitely want you to bite me.” Gwen played with the buttons of his shirt. “Even more so now that I know it has a deeper significance.”
