Seventeen-year-old Delilah Jones must win a national dance contest, even though she doesn’t know a steamy tango from a sensual rumba. She's never competed with outrageous couples desperate to win a competition and willing to do anything to survive, or dealt with the weekly pressure of knowing she could be eliminated at any moment. She’s never had to dance in front of anyone, let alone before a live television audience of millions in scandalously skimpy costumes or live in a Gothic castle where she's sure her dance partner is a vampire. Dancing against his gorgeous body day after day leaves her no option but to want more of him.
Three thousand-year-old Hendrik Court hates being trapped in a teenage body until he meets Delilah. Now, he must conceal his attraction for her and keep his not-quite-developed fangs off her. When he suggests they become voyeurs and peek at the liaisons of their dance teachers, both of them become aroused. This old soul has had many lovers in his many lives, but Delilah offers a fresh and unknown experience for him. When an old flame of Hendrik's uses all her tricks to drive them apart, he reaches across all the centuries of knowledge to choose whether blood lust or love will win.
