Valarie Moon is on the run from her past, hoping that it will not follow her to America. Louisiana in particular. She's made a life for herself amongst the vampires and the scandals of the small town of Bon Tomps. After a short visit to Fangtasia, a vampire bar just outside of town, her world takes a turn for the better...or worse. Valarie can't decide. Did she find blood in her savior? And did her savior find the hidden secret of magic in her? Or is it just plain old childish love? Eric Northman is on the run from his present, hiding behind a overly sexualized facade of who he truly is. Nearly the oldest thing in Bon Tomps Louisiana, Eric must protect his town from the worst. Witches, killers, and outsiders. But what if this 'All Terrible' thing is a beautiful girl on the run from her past? Did she make his life better....or worse than it already is? Did he find the magic in her? And did she find the hidden bloodlust for her in him? Or is it just another Romeo and Juliet forbidden love? And after one taste of her blood, Eric just can't get enough.
