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?
The gallery is hosting a show in which Nick's fetish photos are being displayed. And considering Gwen isn't good with men, such intimate displays promise an interesting night.
Gwen heard Nick’s phone vibrating and saw the annoyance on his face. Their time together wasn’t long enough. While a fan of his work, she wanted to know the man, not the artist. If only she were better with clever banter.
“Unfortunately, I have an appointment I can’t back out of.” Nick gave Gwen a pointed look. “I’d much rather be here with you.”
Once again, Gwen found herself tongue-tied and blushing. Why couldn’t she have snappy comebacks? Instead, she panicked, and words refused to form. Real smooth, Gwen.
“Are you planning to go to the show at Tara’s gallery tomorrow night?” Nick asked as they stood.
Gwen froze for a second. “I’m not sure.”
“How about you go with me?” Nick tossed his full cup into the trash. “We can see what bizarre displays Tara has concocted.”
Gwen repressed her excitement. No need in squealing like a school girl. “I’d enjoy that very much.” They began the return walk back to Artfelt Expressions. “There will be live demos, too.”
“They don’t start till later.” Nick grinned roguishly. “I, however, prefer more private performances.”
