You only mate once.
One midnight feeding changes the both of their lives. Now Iridessa's heart, an organ that would only beat for her pod, is drawn to this strikingly pale human. He's nothing like the men her family tells her about... and she can't help but fall for him.
Love... could this be the emotion she was warned about? An emotion so encompassing she will never escape it? A feeling someone would die for?
Not killing the man after mating is considered treason... but could she do that to someone so gentle?
