Torn between peace and passion ... Former serf Daniel has journeyed to Tanis in search of harmony between humans and vampires. Though the citadel's facade promised peace, it wasn't difficult to find the danger lurking in the shadows. Yet it is the Bloodlady known as Isis, an ancient, beautiful vampire, who proves to be the biggest threat--to Daniel's heart. No human has ever excited Isis the way Daniel does. Though she desires him like no other, she knows he has been damaged, body and soul, by her own kind. Will his past forever stand between them? Or, worse, will the malicious forces who make Tanis their home destroy them both before they can explore their deepest hungers?
