Lucas Matthews has loyally served his race for over two centuries, forced to kill the criminals of his own kind. When his Commander decided to take their laws into his own hands and give Lucas the choice to join his select group of rebels or die, Lucas ran. He refused to bow down to the corruption of his commander and kill humans for profit.

Through guidance and care, he finally found the courage to regain his independence and willingly surrender his control to Lucas. Together, they create a soul-bond forged in love, but they must fight to keep it. With the Commander once again on Lucas' trail, they each find themselves with a decision to make. Will Lucas have to forfeit his freedom for the sake of his love's happiness, or will Kyle choose to sacrifice his life for his Dom?
