Welcome to Dark Ink Tattoo, Las Vegas’s premier 24/7 tattoo studio, where needles aren’t the only things that bite….
Angela, Dark Ink’s owner, has a secret – she’s a werewolf who used to run with the Pack, a dangerous drug-dealing motorcycle gang that services Vegas’s seedier side. She’s been free for the past seven years, ever since her ex-boyfriend (and Pack leader) Gray went to prison – but when the Pack starts threatening her shop she realizes she’s on borrowed time.
Dark Ink’s best artist refuses to show up before sundown – because he’s a vampire. Vegas is the perfect place for Jack – it’s an endless buffet of strangers to bleed. The only thing that haunts Jack more than his hunger is Angela….
Will Angela ever trust Jack with her secret? Will Jack be able to protect Angela from the Pack?
With the Pack threatening Dark Ink Tattoo, Angela knows she needs to break up with Mark before anyone – any were – can hurt him. But when an intimate dinner with him reveals he’s not a mild-mannered lawyer, she realizes he may just be the friend she needs.
Whereas Jack needs a friend to bleed if he’s going to solve Bella’s murder. Enter Paco, Jack’s long-time friend and erstwhile lover – whose gift of blood sets Jack hot on the Pack’s trail.
Angela’s bet on her lawyer-lover pays off when he’s willing to handle the meaty evidence that the Pack placed on her door-step — and send a message to her ex-boyfriend in prison to back-off.
And Jack singles out a Pack member for punishment, only to be brutally denied. Starving for blood, he shows up on an old friend’s doorstep, who offers him blood for an arousing trade.
