'Tis said of love that it sometimes goes, sometimes flies; runs with one, walks gravely with another; turns a third into ice, and sets a fourth in a flame: it wounds one, another it kills: like lightning it begins and ends in the same moment: it makes that fort yield at night which it besieged but in the morning; for there is no force able to resist it.
--Miguel de Cervantes
A future world where vampires are an accepted part of society is not a world that war veteran Cole Everett finds acceptable, until...
The Middle East War is finally over and veteran, Cole Everett, is trying to build a new life in Los Angeles and reconnect with his cousin, Sean Martin, a private investigator. His hopes stall when he learns that Sean's mate, Arturo, is a vampire. It might be 2034 and vampires are an accepted part of society, but Cole can't accept that anyone would willingly mate with the undead.
That is, until he meets Arturo and is introduced to the incredibly handsome Rafael Barrantes. Attracted to Rafael, Cole has to rethink everything he thought he knew about vampires.
Taking a job as a security guard for a high-tech company, Cole becomes suspicious when all is not what it seems with so-called 'government contracts. He can't decide if he should play it safe and call the cops, or take a chance on his newfound vampire friends. How could he know that fate and circumstance would take the matter out of his hands?
