As the head of the North Vampire Coven and owner of Caprice Casino and Club Moroii, alpha-male billionaire Lance Steel has more money and incredible good looks than any one man deserves. He is a great husband and father, but he’s also a vampire. His wife, Leila, is human and his son is a dhampir—half human and half vampire—but in order to live a human life with his wife and son, he wants to become human again.
As a brilliant doctor and scientist, Leila has developed a sunlight serum, and friends Amy and Elias are working on a cure for vampirism, but is Lance willing to give up his vampire and become human again for his family? Or will his decision cost him the lives of his wife and son, and the destruction of his entire coven? Which path will he choose at the crossroads?
“Morning, love,” I said as I gently kissed her shoulder. She turned over, smiling even though her eyes weren’t open yet.
“Good morning, my knight,” she said, and a thrill rushed through me at her words. She was so lovely that it took my breath away. It felt so good to be open with her, about my past, my vampirism … and she accepted me for who I was. “Want to join the Mile High Club now?”
I laughed at her unexpected question. “Ready to leave so soon?” I propped myself up on my elbow and gently stroked her cheek as she lay across my arm … and I had never seen a sight so lovely. “Want to go sailing?”
She looked into my eyes. “Is it safe?”
Pain ripped through my chest at her question, but I kept a good poker face. As not only a vampire, but as a man, I prided myself on keeping my family safe. “I assure you, love. I’ll keep you safe.” Then, I rolled over on top of her, allowing my body to feel her curves beneath me, while being careful not to crush her. “Now, what was that about the Mile High Club?” I gently trailed kisses along her cheek. She spread her legs sleepily and my cock responded. It was all I could do not to take her then, but I stopped to look into her eyes. “We aren’t in a jet, but will this bed do?”
Leila laughed, a wonderful sound. It was good to hear her laugh again. “Well, if we must.” Then, she raised her hips to meet my erection in answer as her lips met mine. Her kiss was filled with so much passion that I could no longer hold back. “What about Jase?”
“Still asleep,” I said, as I let my teeth graze along her neck playfully.
“Then, take me,” she replied, and I knew that she was not only talking about sex. She wanted me to feed from her, too.
“Your wish is my command.”
