But the woman doesn’t seem to understand and demands more of him. At the same time, his mastyr calling surges whenever he’s around her, causing him to crave her more than ever. Because he believes in what he’s doing, however, he digs in his heels and sticks to seeing her only on Friday nights. But does he risk losing the woman he loves by keeping her at arm’s length?

When another vampire courts her, one who has already embraced his mastyr calling, Brianna is drawn to him in a way she doesn’t understand. She can’t seem to help herself as she agrees to go out with him. Yet, how can she turn away from Yolen when she loves him body and soul? Will Yolen finally relent and give her what she needs?
