Caleb Lawrence found a map to the final resting place of the original scourge of the night, a vampire who is well known to have sat on mountains of blood-soaked wealth. Now, the confidence man only
needs to find the vamp and have him lead him to the love of Caleb's life; gold.



But things may not go strictly as planned, as the vamp is intent on centuries old revenge, leading them on a round the world hunt, with hunters, demons and a vast assortment of others hot on their
trail.

As there are explicit scenes in this story, pretty much for just having them, any chapter that has such sensitive nature will be marked with an asterisk in the chapter titles, so that anyone who
doesn't wish to read that can skip it. (Likewise, anyone who is here strictly for that can find them with ease.)
