When Mikhail, a very powerful and dangerous vampire, takes an uncanny interest in her, she is powerless to defend herself from his unwanted advances on both her blood and her body. Unable to retaliate or seek help, Sophie finds herself trapped with a vampire who wants much more from her than she is willing to give. However, her trials with Mikhail have only begun—she is his mate and tied to him for eternity despite her opinion on the matter. Mikhail is ruthless, cruel, and possessive of her, refusing to allow her any freedom. Sophie herself refuses to surrender to his whims, but when she is completely overpowered and helpless in his unrepentant grasp, what choice does she really have?
