When Abigail Worthington receives an invitation to attend the Annual Masquerade Ball, hosted by one of the wealthiest families in the West Coast, she couldn't be more elated. What comes with the elegant gowns, mindless chatter, and beautiful masks, however, is pale and fanged. Every human in Drake Manor is inspected closely to become the subjugate of a blood-sucking demon. The only catch? Vampires are forbidden from falling in love with their subjugates. When Nathaniel, the heir to the Drake family fortune, finds himself caught in the web and sticking fast, it's either his blood-lust or his heart.
