CLAMMY PALMS BALLED at his sides, Sinclair stood outside the door to his
father’s study, collecting his thoughts. He dreaded this conversation. To get
what he wanted, he’d have to remain calm and focus on the part of his plan
most likely to benefit the Vampire Council, over which his father, Luther
Time to stand my ground. I can do this.
One last deep breath, a polite knock, and a gulp as he waited.
“Come in,” came the familiar smooth tenor from inside.
Sinclair entered, forcing his shoulders back and keeping his face neutral.
“Sinclair.” His father welcomed him with a nod. Seated behind a sleek
black desk cluttered with papers and electronics, he looked every bit the busy
CEO he was.
Luther had been turned and thus preserved at the young age of twentytwo. The fair-haired, sharp-featured vampire could be mistaken for Sinclair’s
younger brother—their family resemblance was strong—but never his father.
At twenty-six, Sinclair already looked older than his dad, if only by a few
years, but Luther had centuries on him and all the wisdom that came with that
“What brings you to visit this evening?” Luther ignored the work piled in
front of him and gave his son his full attention.
Sinclair shifted on his feet, his belly churning, nerves on edge.
Now or never.
“I’ve decided to attend Borson University for my PhD instead of Moore.”
The words sputtered out in a rush. Slow down. Gotta stay calm. “I expect
you’ll have objections, but I’ve thought this through. Borson is the best
school for Historical Supernatural Studies. I was accepted last fall, and I’ve
already registered. No other vampire in the council has this degree, no other
vampire at all. I would be the first.”
Sinclair steeled himself to continue. He’d memorized this speech weeks
ago, but when Luther cleared his throat, Sinclair’s next words died on his
“Son, that’s a werewolf school. Deep in the heart of their territory.”
Luther drew his golden brows together and narrowed his gaze. His stern
voice matched his expression. “It’s too dangerous.”
Sinclair had prepared for this argument. “I understand your concern, but
it’s safer than you realize. I’ll be part of an excellent exchange program. And
it’ll do the council good to have a delegate placed at Borson. Plus, it’s a
quality academy with a fine reputation, werewolves notwithstanding.”
Luther scoffed and rose from his seat. At nearly six feet, he stood taller
than his son by several inches. “The answer is no, Sinclair. You’ll attend
Moore as planned. ” He circled the desk and approached. “I don’t appreciate
you addressing this at the last minute. Did you think that by waiting until
now, you’d stand a better chance?”
“Um, yes, actually.” A stubborn edge clung to Sinclair’s voice. “But more
to the point, I’m an adult. I no longer require your permission when the
council’s permission supersedes it. And I think they’ll grant my request. I
told you first as a courtesy, but the petition has already been submitted. The
discussion will be on the docket for tonight’s meeting.”
Luther pressed his lips to a thin line.
Sinclair’s resolve wavered under his father’s disapproving glower.
“You’re certain this is what you wish?”
