Half Apolloite Cassandra is with her friends and her bodyguard when the Daimons arrive. They recognize her and go after the kill because they believe that her death will free them from the curse that has forced them to either die or become vampires. However, Wulf, a dark hunter arrives and kills the Daimons. Afterward he and Cassandra kiss, but he leaves because his curse is that no one except his blood remembers him five minutes after he leaves.

Cassandra forgets Wulf until she shares exotic dreams with him. She begins to remember the dark hunter who saved her life and the advice of her deceased mother to avoid that deadly species. To his chagrin the first person outside his nephew and his peers who remembers him is from a species he has pledged to kill. Making it worse is that this duo falls in love sharing not only their respective species, but the gods of several Pantheons.
