Madeline Bryant is worried about her cousin who seems to have disappeared so she goes to the home of somebody Danielle knows. Dylan doesn't know where Danielle is but she meets Stephen who she is simultaneously attracted to and fears. He claims never to have met Danielle but Maddie finds out he's lying and goes back to his home to confront him. On her way there she is attacked and is brought into Stephen's home where she overhears a conversation that leads her to think they believe they are vampires.
When Stephen visits Maddie at her apartment, she finds out after he marks her that he really is a vampire. Members of the vampire council are dying by silver daggers and they think Stephen is behind the attacks. As Stephen comes under siege, Maddie goes to extraordinary lengths to protect him. They both realize they have feelings for each other but with somebody out to destroy them, they must put their feelings on hold until the threat is neutralized.
