Sarah Dearly has had a bad date. What else would you call being buried alive before dessert? Not to mention that bite mark on her neck, and the creepy way her date keeps saying that he's sired her. Then those guys with the stakes show up and turn her date into so much dust! Sarah runs for her life, only to be rescued by a tall, dark, and handsome stranger. Sure, she interrupts him as he's about to throw himself off a bridge - but as far as rescuers go, Thierry de Bennicoeur will have to do. Only problem is their age difference. He's a six-hundred-year-old vamp with a death wish. She's a new kid on the block with a need for someone with experience to show her the ropes. And to keep her one step ahead from the vampire hunters that are in town to rid Toronto of the 'monsters'. Sarah doesn't know what to make of all this. Sure, she's got a healthy hankering for blood lately, but she doesn't feel like a monster. Just an unemployed girl looking for love. Even if the object of her affection-Thierry-can't go out in the sun for very long.
