Scottish academic Elizabeth Silk is spending the summer in Romania researching historical superstitions for her PhD. While she is tracing local folktales, one subject in particular sparks her imagination. His name is Saloman, legend's most powerful vampire, a seductive prince staked centuries ago. Now, in the ruins of a castle crypt, Elizabeth discovers the legends are real. Her blood has awakened him. Her innocence has aroused him. But Elizabeth unleashes more than Saloman's hunger.
An army of vampire hunters has amassed to send Saloman back to hell. Sworn to help - yet fearing Saloman's deadly blood lust - Elizabeth seeks to entrap him, offering her body as bait. But something stronger than dread, more powerful than revenge, is uniting Elizabeth to her prey. Caught between desire and rage, Elizabeth must decide where her loyalties lie...and what the limits are to a yearning she can no longer control.
“For this moment, this night, Elizabeth, I love you.”Saloman
“Because right now it feels as if I waited three hundred and twelve years and nine days for you, for this.”Saloman
“There is no life without love.”Saloman
“He was enjoying modern language, Dmitriu thought resentfully. He was especially enjoying mixing English and American slang into Romanian. Nor did he care that Dmitriu didn’t share his enthusiasm for provocation or for probable death.”Dmitriu about Saloman
