Diplomat Zoe Pappas is on a secret mission for the Human Byzant Empire. But when the starship she's aboard is attacked by the evil Hajim and his coalition of alien races, she's taken as a prisoner of war and placed under the commander of the Human prisoners, General Matthias "Doc" Raven. While instantly attracted to one another, neither Doc nor Zoe are who they claim to be. He's a vampire, who will be killed if he's found out and she's the heir to the Byzant throne in disguise who's being hunted by her former security agent, intent on killing her. Will Doc and Zoe be able to protect one another, save the empire and find a way to be together? Or will they have to sacrifice more than they ever imagined for their people?
