Torc has been hired to retrieve a Delicant, a prized pleasure slave, and return her to her birth family. Rescuing the beautiful slave is easy for the solitary killing beast. Being able to harness his lust as she constantly offers herself to him is another story. Enslaved since childhood, Ailyea has no concept of life without a Master ordering her every move. She's completely selfless, knowing only how to give pleasure. Ailyea is terrified when she finds herself under Torc's control, and it's not just his fangs that throw her for a loop. He doesn't abuse her - won't even use her for sex. And she finds herself wishing he would. Torc is determined to teach Ailyea to become her own person before he leaves her alone in a dangerous, bloodthirsty universe where females are scarce and in high demand. Ailyea has a few lessons for him, too - if she can convince him that she genuinely wants the sex she offers. Along the way, both must confront the deeper feelings between them - before they reach her planet and have to part ways forever.
