When half-Korean sci fi-fantasy gamer nerd Cyrus Gae goes out clubbing on his first night of vacation, he’s not expecting to be bitten by a vampire. Not in Florida, the land of sunshine and Mickey Mouse. He’s not exactly averse to being a creature of the night, but he’s righteously pissed off about the vampire’s cavalier eat-and-run attitude. Determined to track down Troy, the bloodsucker who turned him, Cyrus takes the name Vlad and begins a search that will take him to leather bars, vampire dens, and cyber cafés.

As Cyrus hunts the elusive vampire, he meets Logon, the hipster/geek love of his afterlife; Vinnie, his Girl Friday the 13th; and even an intersexual voodoo queen, while learning that being a supernatural bad-ass isn’t quite what he imagined. In fact, hardly anything is what it seems, and Vlad finds himself in the middle of an intrigue involving Florida’s master vampire—who isn’t thrilled about Vlad’s sudden appearance in his domain. With powerful forces aligning against Vlad, he’ll have no choice but to become the hero he never wanted to be if he wants to keep his beloved Logon safe.

Now he has to decide what kind of role model he wants to be to his young fans and whether that will cost him the love he thought he would never find.

Roderick, who owes his title and estate to his mother’s money, has never been truly accepted by the local gentry. After his mother dies of fright at the feet of the wolf that’s been terrorizing the countryside, talk in the club turns to how to deal with the alleged werewolf. Some of the men wish to mount a hunt, and it’s even suggested that the creature could be captured and sold, perhaps to that mad American, P.T. Barnum. Roderick’s solution is to purchase a dog, hopefully with the help of the handsome Lord Staynesburgh. He's eager for the chance to get Staynesburgh alone, to ask for his discretion: Staynesburgh saw Roderick emerging from a certain London club, and Roderick fears he'll lose the rest of his already low reputation. But the full moon is only a couple of weeks away, and Roderick has preparations to make if he isn’t to risk more than just a few sheep.

Malic Sunden is in hell—only not literally... yet. As a warder, Malic is used to fighting demons and squaring off against all kinds of creatures from the pit, but this year he’s facing a new and terrifying prospect: Christmas holidays with his much-younger boyfriend and his family.

He loves Dylan, his hearth, but Dylan’s parents, the Shaws, are another story. They think Malic is a cradle-robber, among other things. At least their neighbor, Brad, seems to like him. Then again, maybe not. When Malic gets offered to a demon who wipes his memory of everything but Dylan’s name, it will take all Malic has to escape his new life in a hell dimension and return to the man he calls home.
