Meant to be a guest house for ethereal visitors, the only permanent guest there is a retired Galactic aristocrat; one who fears for her life having been responsible for the deaths of millions.

Soon enough, Dina finds herself juggling between the cosmic vampire soldier and her new neighbor—a vexingly attractive ex-military man who so happens to be an alpha-strain werewolf.
