Bestowed with eternal life by the Ancient Vasilios, Alasdair Kyriakous is one of the most feared and ruthless vampires in existence. His name carries weight across all of the seven continents. But he is a mystery to his kind, an anomaly among the self-indulgent. While he enjoys the pleasures of the flesh, he is exceptionally particular in his choice of partners and prides himself on his ironclad self-control. Yet with one look his control will become a thing of the past, and Alasdair will discover that eternal life doesn't always last forever....
Thrust into a world he could never have imagined, Leo Chapel awakens in his worst nightmare. Taken hostage by the dangerously mesmerizing vampire Alasdair, Leo must rely on his intelligence to escape before he reveals a secret he isn't even aware he's hiding. Unaware that they've been brought together by an outside force and are little more than pawns to a higher power, Alasdair and Leo spend time trying to uncover the other's secrets, the attraction between them growing stronger all the while. But enemies are watching and preparing to act against them. When decisions that will alter lives and destinies have to be made - can a dead, gray heart learn to beat again?

When I read the summary and reviews, I was anticipating much more content. The story dragged along until three-quarters of the way through. I liked the character of Alasdair but the others were not well developed. Even Leo's character lacked a distinctive personality and motivation. He felt vague.
The narrator was very good with an appropriate tone for the story.
I really loved Ms. Frank's Try, Take, Trust trilogy and was hoping for more well developed characters and storyline which those books had.
I will check out more by Ms. Frank but will have to scrutinize the storyline more thoroughly.
Unfortunately, this book was not worth the credit. Felt more like a rough draft than a finished book.
