“No fate other than the one I choose.”
The Rousseaus are a powerful vampire clan with the purest bloodline of any immortal family. Out of this clandestine group came one who was different yet the same. Ascher is a half-bloodling, of human and vampire lineage, who questions the purpose of his existence and which world he truly belongs to.
Two months from a prearranged union to a woman he abhors, Ascher is miserable and at his wits end. Calling off the sealing is considered an insult that gives her family cause to strike the Rousseaus with deadly force. Still, he cannot fathom an eternity with such a cold, empty shell of a woman.
As if his life weren’t complicated enough, Ascher soon develops an unshakable attraction to the beautiful and mysterious Shauna McCutchin. She makes him feel alive and vital, despite his origins, and Ascher makes a decision that promises to alter the course of his life and change the fate of the world.
