On a trip out of the country Aric is bitten by a vampire and is now a fledging vampire. Not quite a full vampire yet, he has a chance to stop the process if he can just figure out a serum to get ride of the disease he's been saddled with. As a PhD candidate in Molecular Biology he is sure if he just has enough time he can accomplish is task.

But time is running out...

A chance meeting with Stu gives Aric more information to his puzzle. Stu belongs to a family of vampire hunters. Stu and his brother Corbin try to help Aric find the vampire who bit him, but it seems the vampire wants to find Aric for his own reasons.

In the meantime, Aric can't help but falling for Stu. Stu, who has never been into men, and never that passionate about women for that matter, suddenly feels an passionate attraction for Aric. Aric's been through this before and isn't interested in getting involved with another curious man wondering what it is like to be with another man, but is there something more to Stu?

I'm not usually into vampire books, but a friend recommended this one to me. Sometime ago I acquired a copy of it and just never got around to reading it. It was worth the read. I like the characters and the world created by the author.

Aric Christian is the wildly smart PhD candidate specializing in Molecular Biology. With a willowy body bordering on thin, slight hips, and even slighter waist, Aric’s hard muscles and steel strength bends but doesn’t break. Long blackish hair dips in his hazel eyes when he’s not wearing his rimless glasses. At times, he turns into quite a different creature, and is working desperately to seek a cure.

Stu Hamilton is the wildly popular college wide receiver, and big man on campus. He’s tall, broad shouldered, finely tuned and has broad hands, perfect to jump and catch the ball. He’s all muscle and grace and blue, blue eyes. Mussed blond hair layered and tapered down to his nape fuels his reputation as the guy who breezes through life. Hidden from his friends is his family’s secret – he’s from a long line of vampire-slayers. Turning away from that life, he wants nothing to do with blood feuds, men of the dark night and killing.

Then Aric bumps into Stu, or rather his football, and their lives are forever intertwined. Will these born enemies find a way toward love?

Kresnik vampire slayer, Corbin Hamilton, has vowed to avenge his father’s death and kill the prince of the Red Serpent clan. Instead, he’s stuck with guard duty for vampire Johan Maier who is becoming human, thanks to a new serum. What’s worse, the sexual attraction between him and his prisoner is getting harder to ignore.

Johan Maier’s chance to regain his humanity is a dream come true. If he only he could get Corbin to trust him, they would have a chance at love. Yet, his vampire powers are getting stronger instead of weaker, his blood markers morphing into something that isn’t quite human.

As Corbin hunts the prince, Johan insists on aiding him. He secretly vows to protect Corbin even if it means his death.
