Ancient vampire Andrew escaped his tropical island exile with his beloved human sailor, Edmund. They’ve now returned to Andrew’s home in nineteenth-century New Orleans and must navigate not only their developing relationship—and equally haunted pasts—but also a hungry coven of vampires Andrew used to call friends.
Desperate to stay by Andrew’s side forever, Edmund examines the impressive coven library in search of an Elder, the only creature capable of turning Edmund. Although missing for centuries, Andrew believes an Elder must still survive somewhere; they just have to find him.

Andrew is a vampire and an exile. Sent to a tropical island in the 1800s as a punishment, he lives a mostly solitary and unsatisfying existence. A shipwreck changes this, bringing a beautiful new companion and a difficult moral quandary to his shore. But he’s not the only one interested in this gorgeous sailor—the cannibals native to Andrew’s island know fresh blood is among them, and a withered vampire isn’t strong enough to stop them all.
