Damon is used to taking what he wants, whether it’s men to bed or feed upon. He is careful with his conquests, knowing the danger that the village poses to him. It has been a while since he’s fed, and hunger gnaws at him. He needs to feed soon before desire overrides caution and he enters the village, but he comes upon Lacey and his brother Caleb tending to sheep.
For Lacey, the sight of Damon drinking from his brother’s throat should repulse him. Instead, he finds himself oddly aroused; Damon is all his fantasies come true, lovely yet dangerous. When Damon sees Lacey for the first time, he is immediately attracted to him. Taking Lacey as a lover, he blackmails him into acceptance by threatening to kill Caleb.
As Damon’s prisoner, Lacey’s love for his beautiful captor grows. He is confused and ashamed, then angry at Damon for threatening his brother. When Damon sets Caleb free, Lacey is surprised, but relieved, yet, he still wants to be free himself. Damon releases him, but Lacey quickly realizes he still wants his vampire. Lacey has come to love him, but will love be enough to set them both free?
