Miranda Crescent, an art authenticator, travels to Paris to procure a rare Degas painting for New York’s High Lord Vampire, Valadon. Unaware, she’s being used to lure his enemies into the open, Miranda will garner an invitation to the home of one of the most notorious vampires in all of Europe, Vivienna, who has become fascinated with Valadon’s love interest. Miranda soon learns Vivienna has knowledge of the vampire elders who are conspiring against Lord Valadon and will try to attain the information for the darkly handsome lord, but Vivienna is no easy prey. She has lived for centuries and enjoys a good game of cat and mouse. Years ago, she was the paramour of Remare and Valadon until she betrayed them both—a decision she has long regretted. Will she now offer assistance to Valadon—or is history set to repeat itself?
Meanwhile, Remare, Valadon’s second, will use all his resources to track down the traitor who tried to have his friend and lord murdered. Once betrayed by the beautiful Vivienna, he has sworn never to let himself love another, yet his feelings for Valadon’s would-be lover, Miranda, are becoming harder to deny. He soon realizes his quarry is in Paris, and enemies long silent will surface once again to threaten what Remare holds most precious. After Miranda nearly died at the hands of his enemies, he has sworn never to endanger her life and will stop at nothing to keep her protected. Even if it means defying the High Lord.
