Houston nightclub Rave is famous for nearly-naked male dancers and beautiful bartenders. Like Peter, a young man with a strict rule about one-night stands with locals. He breaks that rule for Lucien, the owner of The Den, a rival nightclub where there are no boundaries, no taboos. Only he doesn’t realize just who Lucien is when he does. When Peter finds out that the man he wants to get to know even more is a vampire, he figures he should have stuck to that rule. He’s not fan of vampires or most other creatures of the night, but Lucien is relentless in his seduction. Peter resists Lucien as long as he can, but when he gives in, he does it in a big way, falling headfirst in to the dark, violent world of vampires, werewolves, and other creatures he’s only read about.
Peter and Lucien begin a very dangerous dance of sensual heat and deep emotion, one that causes them nothing but trouble. No one approves of the human and vampire match, including those in Lucien’s Coven, old enemies, and even older friends. Peter and Lucien have to struggle to stay together and protect those they love. Can they beat the forces that will try to tear them apart forever? And can they face what will become of Peter if they stay together?
Desperate to be turned and baffled by Lucien’s continuing refusal, Peter is starting to feel that he’s losing his vampire lover. Their relationship has become purely physical, with Lucien pushing Peter away at every turn. After a night watching werewolf Xander hunt, a night that sees Peter attacked, that might not be all he’s losing. Fearing for his very life, and working hard to keep Lucien’s increasingly uncertain temper from hurting his friends, Peter’s doing all he can to prove that he belongs at Lucien’s side, not just as a master, but as an equal. When Lucien disappears, Peter knows he has to call on every ally, every power he has, to get Lucien back before he’s gone forever. Can Peter find a way to beat the forces working against them, or will he lose all that he holds dear?

As part of Caleb’s punishment, he hasn’t been allowed to hunt or feed for months. It’s been difficult to ignore his most basic vampire instincts, but he feels he’s made progress and is ready for his punishment to be over. When his vampire Master finally allows Caleb his freedom, Caleb has his fangs set on one person — Xander, his werewolf lover.
