Alexandria is an up-and-coming 23-year-old graphic design artist who is raising her 6-year-old brother. Alexandria also has precognitive abilities, but she doesn't really think much of them. Aidan is a Carpathian male who lives in San Francisco in order to contain the rising vampire population in America. When Alexandria and her brother are abducted by a vampire who wants to turn Alexandria into his vampiress, it is Aidan who comes to her rescue. Unfortunately, the rescue leads to Alexandria becoming a Carpathian. She has a great deal of difficulty coming to terms with her new life and struggles to break free of the bond that links her to Aidan as her life mate.
