Sara gives an overview of the book:

Forget everything you thought you knew about vampires--they just don't exist. But there are others with similar appetites and they appreciate how well the folklore has protected them. How do you deal with having to dine on the humanity you adore? Feast on the miscreants. And don't get too close to the good ones. This is Paul Christian's choice. A seemingly mortal man, he has numerous special abilities. Unfortunately, he needs human blood to survive. A low-key crime novelist, Paul leads a cautious and comfortable life. Until he falls in love. Lauren is just managing to keep her tavern open when she meets a charismatic man who carefully weaves himself into her life. Life will change for everyone.
