Ivy Dearing is a daughter of a madam. Having grown-up at the Masion Rouge brothel, Ivy has learned a lot about sex and the art of seduction. What she has not learned is the true love between a man and a woman. Over her years at the brothel, Ivy has seen a lot of things other proper girls have not, including vampires.
Saint is a vampire who has seen and experienced many things in the past six centuries and heartbreak is one of them. Saint has always been a flirt and loved the feeling of being in love. But, after he suffered a painful loss, a loss that he still feels all the way to the very marrow of his bones, he vowed to never fall in love again.
When Saint arrives at the Maison Rouge, which is a safe haven for him and his four fellow vampire friends, he finds death and despair. Two of the girls have been viciously murdered and the local police will do nothing. As his duty to protect the women of Maison Rouge, Saint sets out with Ivy to find the killer. But, will he and Ivy be able to solve the mystery behind the killings before it is too late? Or will the evil madman be able to complete his gruesome plan?
As Ivy and Saint work closely together, Ivy uses all that she has learned about sex and seduction to seduce Saint. She may find him to be very arrogant, but Ivy craves his touch and hungers for his passionate kisses and longs for his breathtaking bite nevertheless. Will Saint be able to get over his loss and learn to love again? Will he be able to teach a madam's daughter that there is more to passion than just sex, that there is such a thing as real love?
