Loving a human woman with anxiety is hard.
It’s even harder when you’re a brooding, gothic, antisocial vampyr with an insatiable hunger for her blood, among other things…
Meet Lucien Sabatini, a 200-year-old vampyr elite who doesn’t adhere to the accepted stereotypes of being a creature of the night. He’s walled himself off from others for hundreds of years to avoid emotions, and he’s been an unfeeling mess ever since. But when his interest is piqued by a beautiful woman in a newspaper photo, he finds himself driven to hunt her down and orchestrate her presence in his Italian villa for a week. He must bring himself to keep from devouring her when the Thirst takes over him, but when her time in Italy is up, will he be able to let her go?
And when his sordid past as a human catches up to him, will it cost Lucien more than he’s willing to give up?
