Slain long before in a moment of despair, Cain was collected by the Evil One and forced into servitude. He became a demon with one purpose: to stalk the night, stripping away women's fears and tasting their desire. In their moment of ecstasy, he takes their souls. He's done so a thousand times and felt nothing. This time will be no different. But when he slips into Sophie Alexander's dreams, she evades his pursuit. In her kiss, there is sweet redemption. Love is no longer the trap he'd believed it to beÑand his lust is no longer a weapon but a tool. With it he will break his bonds, and together he and Sophie will overcome the evil that imprisons them and create a whole new world.
