Jack is the son of the legendary Casanova, although he'll deny it if you ask him. He decides to throw a bachelor party for a vampire friend of his, but the party gets out of hand and the cops show up. Not good, since he'll have a hard time explaining all the bottles of blood lying around. When the cops get there, he goes to wipe their minds, but one officer, a gorgeous red haired beauty, seems to be immune to his mind control. Not good, since the last thing he needs are the cops investigating his kind.
When Lara and her partner get a disturbance call at the hotel, she figures it's business as usual. She doesn't expect the drop-dead hunk in the suite, nor does the expect the instant attraction she feels for him. As she begins to investigate this mystery man, more and more questions arise. She knows he's keeping secrets from her, and she knows she can't have a relationship with a man who won't be honest with her.
When she finds out the truth, will her feelings be enough to keep her at Jack's side, or will it be too much for Lara to deal with?
