Elena wakes up one hot summer morning to find bite marks on her neck - and an ancient looking ruby ring on her finger that suspiciously looks like a wedding ring. She has no recollection what could have happened. That morning is the end of what she thought to be a normal life. Her genealogy isn't at all what she thought it was - and she learns she has skills a vampire lord wishes to possess by forcing her into marriage. She has to flee, helped by creatures she never even thought could exist - and all the while she is on the brink of turning into a vampire herself. Her only hope to survive is an ancient potion, a demon and vampire who only wishes to die.
