Stefan d’Argent has spent lifetimes hunting Louis Reynard, a renegade vampire who’s bent on a sick trail of revenge for all those who resemble the woman who broke his heart. When Reynard slips through his grasp in a savage battle, Stefan tracks him to his next victim, the lovely and incredibly alluring Julie Quill.

Julie has led a quiet life with only one flaw, that she bears a striking resemblance to Alina, queen of the vampires and the woman who rejected Reynard. When Stefan d’Argent enters her life in an effort to save her, he awakens in her a sensual need she never knew she had, and one that she knows only he can fulfill.

As Julie and Stefan lose themselves in the burning desire that flares between them, Reynard grows closer and threatens to destroy everything they both hold dear. And in the epic struggle that ensues, they will discover that the height of their passion is matched only by the intensity of the fight they’ll put up to save their lives and the eternal love they’ve discovered in each other’s arms.

This is a fully revised and expanded edition of a story first told in Eternity of Darkness.
