Dayan, the mesmerizing lead singer for the Dark Troubadours, is a Carpathian. Carpathians are vampire hunters with paranormal abilities who must find their lifemate or risk turning into vampires themselves. When playing a small club one night, Dayan senses that his lifemate is near. Her name is Corinne Wentworth, a widow whose husband was recently murdered. Now the same people who killed her husband are after her and her husband's sister, Lisa. Corinne is pregnant, and has a terminal heart condition which makes it unlikely that she can live through the stress of giving birth. To save her life, Dayan must turn her into a Carpathian. But the difficult transformation can only happen after she has given birth. The two fall in love, but it's a race against time to save Corinne's and the baby's life.
