When her grandmother passed away, Sage Montgomery promised her father she would take care of her estate. Her drive to North Carolina took a horror movie turn when she found herself stranded on the side of a mountain, a storm looming on the horizon. And just like in the movies, a tall, dark, and mysterious man appeared to rescue her. A stranger who instantly set her body on fire. Vampire Marcus Dulcan had roamed the earth for more years than he cared to remember. On a whim, he’d settled in the small county of Transylvania, deep in the North Carolina mountains. There, he’d been determined to live his life building homes where couples could raise a family and grow old together. Something he knew he would never have. Then, late one night, he discovered that fate had not abandoned him when it sent a gorgeous, curvy woman his way. But, there was more than one force at work as these two lovers soon discovered.
