Devon Dawson lost her parents and turned to alcohol as a way to cope with grief. She shares a house with a wolf shifter who has some nasty friends. Professor Matthews takes an interest in her. He also happens to be a vampire. He spanks her to get her to work to her full capacity. As much as she dislike the spankings she feels cared for and turned on. I loved the history of vampires, and werewolves. Most of what we know about vampires and werewolves are based on movies and myths. This excellent book had many details, romance, violence and hot sex and many spankings.
