Please Note: This novella is a reissue of an older title once published with Ellora's Cave. It has been updated and given a new cover.

Gabriel Letourneau, a four-hundred-year-old Vampir, has been guarding Fate Harding from the dark forces that swirl around her for a very long time. On the night Gabriel's period of watching comes to an end, when he finally believes she's safe, Fate is violently attacked, Embraced, and left on his doorstep.

Fate didn't know she had a badass vampiric bodyguard until the night she became a Vampir herself. She awakens from her ordeal with a powerful craving for both sex and blood, and Gabriel looks perfectly capable of satisfying all her needs at once. With sexual desire hot enough to spark the whole city on fire, she turns to Gabriel to sate the lusts of the recently Embraced and teach her the ways of her new life.

But Fate awakens something within Gabriel that has been asleep for centuries. He is insatiable in every way when it comes to her, but taming and keeping fiery, headstrong Fate is another matter entirely. Especially since she has a history of being mistreated and betrayed by those she loves. Gabriel's greatest challenge becomes earning Fate's trust.

Yet even if Gabriel manages to convince Fate he's the only man for her, it may not be enough to keep her. Someone is stalking Fate, manipulating them both, and punishing Gabriel for his past sins...
