Sarah Dearly has had a bad date. What else would you call being buried alive before dessert? Not to mention the bite mark on her neck and the creepy way her date keeps saying that he’s sired her. Then these guys with stakes show up and turn her date into dust! Sarah runs for her life, only to be rescued by a tall, dark, and handsome stranger. Sure, she interrupts him as he’s about to throw himself off a bridge -- but as far as rescuers go, Thierry de Bennicoeur will do. The only problem is their age difference. He’s a 600-year-old vamp with a death wish. She’s a new kid on the block with a need for someone to show her the ropes -- and to keep her one step ahead of the vampire hunters. Sarah doesn’t know what to make of all this. She’s got a hankering for blood lately, but she doesn’t feel like a monster, just like an unemployed girl looking for love -- even if the object of her affection can’t go out in the sun for very long.
