She hoped they'd be together forever.
Bailey is - at best - a loner before Lucien. When he steps into her world, it is like something from a dream. Every encounter leaves her breathless and wanting more. They are perfect together. That is, until he takes everything from her. Her heart. Her sanity...Her life.
Forever turned out to be longer than Bailey could've ever imagined.
For someone such as Lucien, an entity as old as time, people are insignificant. Eternity has a way of corrupting morals. Watching the light leave a human's eyes means nothing to him. It's his job. Simple. Unexceptional. Meeting Bailey changes everything and nothing. She's the addiction he'll do anything to feed. No low is too low when it comes to keeping her, even in death she belongs to him.
Sometimes love is twisted, dark, and obsessive. Beautiful.
When Bailey accepts the help of another powerful being to escape Lucien, she learns there are fates much worse than death, and the price she has paid is a soul well spent.
