In a distant land, evil masquerades as desire. A vicious flame-haired temptress hides secrets, fangs that drain the life from the victims she seduces so easily. Her leavings are doomed to exist outside of Regency society, and one - Adrian - finds he cannot shed his humanity in spite of what he has become. He wishes for nothing more than the death he is constantly denied.
Lost and alone, he washes up on the beach of a small English estate, St. Chesswell’s. And there he’s found by the owner, Sir Sidney Chesswell, a gentleman of science and soul with a heart yearning for family. Unfazed by Adrian’s “condition”, Sir Sidney adopts him, giving them both new hope and a future that isn’t as bleak as either anticipated. Science, believes Sir Sidney, can produce an answer to Adrian’s affliction and together they work to find something that will help.
In the meantime their experiments are disturbed by the eventful arrival of a woman, Katherine Byerly. Red-haired and with her own secrets, Kat finds herself a hiding place, somewhere to heal and plan for her own uncertain future. The fact that she’s finding Adrian Chesswell strangely compelling merely adds to her confusion.
But revelations are inevitable and truths will out, no matter how well concealed they might be.
Confronted by their demons, both Kat and Adrian must fight, and the growing bond between them will give them the strength they need to survive.
