Frederik Fenrir is a noble vampire, and his affair with the servant Owen has been discovered. Because of this, Owen is sold to a cruel mage while Frederik is helpless to follow. His older brother does not understand that Frederik loves Owen, and the moment he is able to escape, he sets off to rescue his lover, abandoning his family forever. Owen didn't know he was part of the fae until the mage told him. Apparently fae pieces make for powerful potions, and the mage Alden intends to harvest Owen's organs to enhance his powers. Frederik quickly rescues Owen, and they both find themselves on the run, hoping to make it anywhere safe while the humans revolt against the vampires, and Alden gathers his army to track them down. Owen and Frederik are not able to move quickly, however, because the fae can become pregnant regardless of their sex, and Owen is carrying Frederik's child.
