Elizabeth Evans possesses all the qualities that make a good nurse: dedication, empathy, and a healthy respect for human life. But there's only one problem-Elizabeth is dead. After a chance encounter in the cardiac catheterization lab of Mercy Memorial Hospital results in her demise, the newly turned vampire joins the ranks of the hospital's undead subculture. She becomes the protege of Dr. Paul Bertrand, a cardiologist who is more than willing to train her in the ways of her new existence. While Elizabeth struggles with her love for humans and her overwhelming need to feed, the doctor and nurse temporarily become the perfect vampire couple. When the urge to strike out on her own calls Elizabeth to Tennessee to work on a television series, she encounters Alexander Fekete, a terrifying vampire and heavy metal musician who immediately becomes infatuated with her. But it is her relationship with actor Lars Jansson that will change everything. Worlds collide as Elizabeth abandons her maker and alienates her tormentor, and a doctor decides to reclaim the vampire nurse he once created.
