Have you ever longed to leave your life behind? Sever all ties and disappear? Even for just one second? What if you it wasn’t a choice anymore? Rae compromised herself away in the hope of fitting in; of finding love by pleasing others, the she escaped the misery she created by dreaming her life away, until her fortieth Birthday. Then she leaves her husband and moves in with newly divorced best friend Layla. They head off on holiday to France where they are infected by the vampire virus. Vampires don’t dream, so Rae has lost her escape, just when she needs it most. She finds out that fresh blood offers an escape into her victim’s memories. She is determined to retain her humanity, refusing to kill, but how can she resist such temptation? The new vampires discover the other Pride members can be as beguiling, cruel and fatal as cats. And just as irresistible. The friends are not entirely welcome, and tensions soon erupt into a fight for life. They find themselves on the wrong side of a High Council, they didn’t know existed, for breaking rules they hadn’t been warned about. With all this going on the last thing Rae needs is to fall head over heels in unrequited love with Guillaume, the aloof head of the Pride.
