A private eye goes looking for a missing girl in the territory of a vampire he knows all too well. Ken and Dinaria have history: "The last time they had been together she had offered to make him immortal, to be her slave forever." The last time, Ken had walked away, forever. But forever is shorter for a mortal man than it is for a beautiful, dominant vampire.
The Viscountess and Severin are not typical detectives, nor typical mistress and slave. They inhabit the kinky universe of "Dominions" hidden from the real world. Tracking a murderer takes them through a Victorian London where "fox" hunts involve no animals and a feudal Japan home to magical jade dildos. Their loving bond as owner and slave is tested as they Scene their way to solving the mystery.
