"The Story of Son"

"The Story of Son" is a short story by J.R. Ward that appeared in the Dead After Dark anthology. From the back cover.~

Claire Stroughton is a beautiful lawyer who would rather spend the night with a legal brief that the man of her dreams. Then a routine client meeting turns dangerous-and deeply sensual-when she is held captive by a gorgeous man with an unworldly hunger...

Claire Stroughton is an attorney for the elderly Miss Leeds, a client she inherited from her father upon his death. Claire is introduced to Miss Leeds's son on a visit that turns to more that Claire could ever imagine. "Son" as he is called by Miss Leeds, turns out to be a vampire, who is kept hidden in the basement. Claire feels an instant attraction to "Son" and even ends up giving him the name Michael. The romance the blooms between Claire and Michael is both sweet and hot. I loved both characters and would love to see more of Claire and Michael in future BDB books, especially since they also live in Caldwell, New York. The WARDen gives readers another wonderful story with "The Story of Son".
