The Directress Nikolena needs a spy. An illegal secret society of vampires has sprung up in Baton Rouge and is creating a small army of "aberrations," creatures that are half-human, half-vampire, and highly susceptible to the will of their masters. Led by Vangeline, a mysterious female reputed to possess great power, this society is a threat not only to the human world, but the hierarchy as well. Nikolena's past enforcier fell victim to l'amour. Needing someone who is immune to feminine wiles, she turns to her favorite new enforcer, whose motto is "no one goes Scott-free."
Revelin Scott is normally pretty easygoing. Even the snide comments of his coworkers that he's nothing but Nikolena's "new dog" don't faze the new enforcier. But when Rev is instructed to dye his hair, change his name, and go undercover, he fears the worst. When he's saddled with a young woman whose brother was one of Vangeline's aberrations, Rev knows the case will be bad. Denice Geron has information he'll need to infiltrate the society, but her disrespect and defiance test his patience to the limit.
Denice's brother Michel, infected with vampire blood, had the strength of will to resist the machinations of the société, and before he was found out and killed, he was able to relay information to his sister. Denice seeks help of the Brotherhood and is passed up the chain of command, but instead of getting what she envisions as the epitome of vampirekind, she gets "Sean Ardwolf," a cocky young vampire who looks more like a debauched rock star than Dracula.
She helps him gain access to the société, but Vangeline is more powerful than anyone imagined, and even Revelin/Sean is drawn into her web of seduction and poisoned by her tainted blood. Denice is his only salvation, but it would mean her death to help him now. A few weeks ago the decision for both would have been easy. Now nothing is easy, no one is to be trusted, and there's no going back.
