Following a brutal battle that left the sadistic vampire Louis Reynard severely wounded and sent him into hiding, the strikingly beautiful vampire queen Alina and the rest of the d’Argent clan are in New Orleans to celebrate the wedding of one of their own. With Reynard temporarily out of the picture, Alina is free to relax and indulge her deeply passionate nature.

Sam Quill, the bride’s human father, has been widowed and alone for many years and finds himself irresistibly drawn to Alina. While he has no desire to be turned himself, their romantic interlude escalates to a fever pitch, and he’s more than eager to explore the unworldly pleasures Alina promises—pleasures that will take them both to erotic heights neither of them could have imagined.

Lurking in the shadows is Wim, another of Reynard’s evil kind who’s just as dark, just as cruel, and just as hell-bent on destroying the queen and her entire clan. When he launches his attack, it’s Sam who confronts him, but he’s no match for the vampire’s demonic strength. And as Alina helplessly watches Sam’s torment, she’s forced to choose between honoring his wishes and letting him die, or changing him to a creature of the eternal night in order to save the only man who’s ever taken her to the blistering edge of sensual surrender.

This is a fully revised edition of a story first told in Eternal Surrender.
