What do you do when your life has been turned upside down?
What do you do when everything you thought you knew – about reality, about life, about yourself – turns out to be wrong?
What choice do you make when you are faced with the love you’ve always wanted – but it comes at the cost of everything that ever mattered to you?
Twenty-five year old Matthew Devons has it all; money, power and a successful career that is steadily skyrocketing him to the top of the music world. He isn’t necessarily happy with his life – seeing as it is lacking in true friends and any sense of passion, with a family that shows more distrust to one another than affection. Maybe Matt does dream of finding friends who like him for him and not for what he can offer them; maybe he does dream of finding the right woman, of winning her love and finding some peace and acceptance in an otherwise cold, uncaring world. However, when you’re the only son of a millionaire record producer and stand to inherit the family business for toeing the line, your wants don’t matter in the face of your responsibilities – right?
Then again, maybe not.
The world is turned upside down and backwards when Matt discovers that the members of his meal ticket, the band Failed Conspiracy, are more than they seem to be and they most defiantly are not all human. Without warning, the manager is thrown into a shadowy world of the night, forced to bare the burden of secrecy. After all, he has been entrusted with a knowledge whose price is his very life – whether he ever wanted to be or not. To make matters even worse, Matt unexpectedly finds the love his life has been missing all along. A deep love; profound, affectionate and all consuming. Matt is gifted with the type of soul-deep connection found only in fairy tales and legends, and he has found it in the form of Conspiracy’s bassist, Valaryn Cage.
Valaryn Cage, who also just happens to be a vampire.
A male vampire.
Suddenly, nothing is what it seemed to be and a whole new reality is thrust upon Matt. Happiness and love cannot be bought, but neither can power and success in the limelight be found while leading a secretive double life. When everything he has ever known and cared about is at stake in the face of true love, one brought up with the best that money could buy is forced to realize for the first time that he cannot have it all.
