A seductive and vicious flame-haired vampire savages a young nobleman at a glittering ball deep in the forests of Europe, sending the resulting creature into darkness. It takes ten terrible years for him to find a new home, a new name and a man who understands not only what he is, but what he can be-Adrian Chesswell. Son. Aging Sir Sidney Chesswell may not have adopted Adrian in the traditional manner, but he has chosen a man he likes...and one who ignites his scientific interests. The arrival of Katherine Edgeworth puts a different set of challenges before them both. Now Sidney must hurry to find a ""cure"" for Adrian while his son battles an overwhelming hunger for the intriguingly sensual Kat. And Kat? She has some secrets of her own... They must do more than share a bed, however, to defeat the savage evil that looms over them. They must trust and love, or the results could be fatal-consuming them all in a flame darker than shadows.
