For centuries, Kyrian has searched for Allegra Augusta. She isn't just the vampire who made him immortal--she's his love, his life, his mate. He'll stop at nothing to find her again, to claim her for his own.
Allegra won't stop running. Kyrian is the one man powerful enough to own her, body and soul. If he finds her, she'll have no choice but to submit, and she's terrified of losing herself to the primal, shattering pleasure only Kyrian can give.

Excerpt from Owned by the Night by Scarlett Sanderson
She felt the pull of his words. The dark compulsion. Her name on his tongue held a command, drawing her. Her body walked involuntarily toward him.
Drawing on her own power, calling it forth, she resisted the summons, put up a barrier between them. How dare he try to coerce her?
"No, druid. I am not yours to command."
Turning her back on him, she exited the private dwelling and drew in huge gulps of night air. Revenants did not need to breathe yet the gesture was oddly comforting.
Kyrian's growing strength, his fire, his passion, his dominance, would consume her eventually. She could feel it deep in her heart, knew it with every extrasensory power she possessed. It was becoming harder and harder to resist.
Somewhere inside the darkest part of her soul, she didn't want to.
Kyrian caressed her shoulders. She felt his heat through the thick material of her gown. His ability to approach her without her knowledge was another sure sign of his commanding power. No one could sneak up on her, no one except him. Her druid, the vampire she had created and thought to contain. How wrong she had been.
His voice sounded tired. "Why do you run from me, Allegra? Isn't this what you wanted? Someone to match you? Someone to match your power?"
He banded his arm around her waist, drawing her body flush against his.
His hard cock prodded into the soft cheeks of her ass. "Someone so powerful they possess you."
She stiffened in his embrace. "Possess me, druid? No man possesses me."
He rimmed the shell of her ear with his tongue. "But I'm not just a man."
No, he was druid and vampire. A powerful combination. One more powerful than she could have ever imagined.
His hand snaked down and covered her pubic bone. His fingers pressed against the seam of her pussy, stroked her clit through the material of her gown. Even these innocent caresses had a moan dropping from her lips. She couldn't resist him, resist the sex and power he had to offer.
"I love you, Allegra. Why can't you understand that?"
