It is the time of year, where male vampires of all over the world meet in the cold forest in Alaska to take part of the Mate Hunt. Female humans are kidnapped by older vampires for the mateless male vampires. In the vampire society, only males are born and they need females to mate. One of the females that is kidnapped, is 21 year old Esmerald and she is terrified of the idea of being the mate of a bloodthirsty vampire. She catches the eye of Hunter, 35, who has not found the mate he desperately wanted, but when he sees Esmerald, he knew he wanted her. Yet, Hunter has other competitors to fend off. Although that is the case, he will not stop at nothing to get Esmerald and when he does he will never let her go. He will not allow it.
