Despite his father's determination to "modernize" Zoltan clan, Anthony refuses to change his ways. Taking what he wants has always worked well in the past and he sees no reason to alter his strategy. Monique Vasco attracts him more intensely than any woman he's ever met before and she's an organic vampire, the necessary qualification for becoming his mate.
Monique reluctantly agrees to help her father's ally introduce his sons to the expectations of modern society. After three hundred years of seclusion, Zoltan clan has a lot to learn. The oldest son, Anthony, is arrogant and demanding, but his brooding good looks and seductive charm tempt her away from her planned activities. She can't seem to remember what she's trying to accomplish every time she looks into his smoldering eyes.
Without warning, Monique finds herself trapped in a secluded castle, prisoner to the most dangerously appealing man she's ever met. Instead of teaching Anthony how to adjust to modern society, Anthony and his personal guard are showing her the unbelievable pleasures only attainable within the social structure of a bygone world.

Monique fidgeted on a barstool the following evening as she waited for her unwanted guest. The nightly crowd wouldn't descend on Station X for another hour or so. Hopefully, she could convince Anthony to select another destination before they were overrun by pleasure seekers. She had nothing against the popular bar. In fact her father had commissioned the Bronsteins to open a similar club in the Twilight Jewel. Even so, the rowdy atmosphere was counterproductive to her agenda.
Anthony Zoltan. His name echoed through her mind. She wasn't sure what to expect. Would he stride into Station X looking like an escapee from Excalibur or would he be intimidated by the overtly sexual atmosphere? Intimidated? She shook her head. He was a male vampire. Few were intimidated by anything.
She sensed him before she saw him. A slow, intoxicating pull turned her head toward the main entrance on the far side of the room. A tall, muscular human opened the door then quickly stepped aside. Monique noted the pleasing arrangement of his features and the impressive breadth of his shoulders a moment before Anthony moved into view.
There was no doubt the second man was Anthony. He emanated authority and danger with effortless ease. He wasn't extremely handsome. His tall companion was better looking. Still, she couldn't drag her gaze away from his captivating face.
Each of his features was average, wide brow, straight nose, full lips, and high cheekbones. The only exception was his deep blue eyes. One glance into those soulful depths and his appearance transformed into something far more striking than the individual components.
Dressed in charcoal-colored pants and a royal blue shirt, there was nothing about him that should account for his… magnetism. Even so, she felt drawn, fascinated, and aroused. Shaking away the sensations, she extended her hand. "Monique Vasco. I'll be your guide."
Anthony's fingers encompassed hers as he raised her hand to his lips. "I presume you know my name. You were expecting me."
His lips brushed her skin, and tingles crawled up her arm. She was an organic vampire, for God's sake. Why was he affecting her so powerfully? "How would you prefer to be addressed?"
The men exchanged wicked smiles. "Please, call me Anthony."
"Am I missing something?" She pulled her hand out of his light grasp.
"Zoltan men are most often addressed as sir," the other man said. "Or master." A faint accent colored his words, bringing to mind kilts and claymores.
Intrigued by the sensual purr in the human's tone, she turned toward him and assessed his features more closely. Oh yeah, he was by far the better looking of the two. And his casual clothing did nothing to hide the muscular contours of his body. His hair was lighter than Anthony's and it swept away from his face in distinct waves. Emerald green and filled with secrets, his gaze stared back at her steadily.
"And you are?" She summoned her professional detachment, refusing to let either of them rattle her composure.
"Jacob Cameron." He inclined his head respectfully, yet remained just out of reach.
"It's nice to meet you, Mr. Cameron."
"Jacob, please." His charming smile made her want to outline his lips with her fingertip or, better yet, her tongue. As if he could sense her interest, he moved closer and reached for her hand.
Anthony warned him off with a meaningful glare. "She's here for me."
His arrogance annoyed her. "Then what's Jacob here for?" Challenging a vampire was never wise, but Monique couldn't seem to stop herself.
"He's here for me too." Anthony leaned in and whispered the boast in her ear.
Fueled by the inference, her imagination took flight. She saw the two men naked and entwined in a passionate embrace. Anthony maneuvered Jacob relentlessly, controlling him with his hands and teeth. Slowly, savoring each hard-won inch, Anthony drove his cock into Jacob's ass. Jacob tossed his head and cried out, his features contorted in ecstasy. Anthony reached around Jacob's lean hip and grasped his shaft, pumping in tandem with the rocking of his hips.
A smile tugged at the corners of her mouth, and heat cascaded through her body. These next few days might be a lot more interesting than she'd anticipated.
"That's rather selfish, don't you think?" She was treading on dangerous ground, revealing an interest she wasn't ready to acknowledge. She wasn't even sure she liked Anthony. He was far too sure of himself. "You can't have both of us."
"Why not?" Anthony's hand brushed her waist as he moved away.
