Emilien has hidden himself away for endless years. Half-human and half-vampire, he has continually struggled with his own nature. His only contact is with a vampire named Carmen, who makes one critical error and brings the full force of vampire wrath down on Carmen, exposing Emilien and forcing him out of hiding.
Saddled with a young mortal woman he can't bring himself to kill, he flees with her to her brother's house. Carl represents everything that Emilien yearns for, to live life like a normal mortal. As a result, he stays longer than he intends, until the reality of what he is comes crashing down around him.
Emilien has been in love before--during the French Revolution, with a stable boy named Francois--but his vampire father shattered their love when he turned Francois into a vampire. It's not the only thing his father, Alexander, has destroyed. Unable to accept Emilien's humanity, Alexander has sought only to kill him, and even in the twenty-first century, his desire to vanquish his only son is as strong as ever. Emilien quickly realizes he can never have a future with Carl, or even come to terms with the love he still bears for Francois, until he and Alexander settle matters once and for all.
Now, the past comes hurtling into the present when vampires take sides and the real battle between father and son commences...
