When single mom Alexandra St. John gets conned into a night on the town with her friends, she wanders into the wrong bar on Fetish Night. Lost and disoriented, she is accosted by several sinister characters. Baine Tenbrook, a shapeshifter working as a U.S Marshal, and Antonio Salazar, a flamenco-dancing vampire, save her. Unable to choose between them, she tries both. But her night on the town lands her on a ship to Istanbul as a pleasure slave. When Alex and her gay assistant Lyle get kidnapped, it's up to Baine and Antonio to save them. The shifter and the vampire—with the aide of Antonio's old lover, an ancient vampire named Africaisi—follow them around the world. Alex was just looking for a break from her real life. What she got was the adventure of a lifetime and, perhaps, the love of a shapeshifter.
