In a world of dwindling hope, love has never mattered more...
A brief romantic sojourn to the dazzling city of Ingleton turns into an impromptu shopping trip when duty rears its ugly head in the form of an unavoidable social event. The newly invested Wolf Laird, Captain Nathan J. Northland; his new wife and immortal magic-user, Ursula; and their beloved vampire swain, Vlad, must present themselves at court, and there's no way the trio can politely decline. While Vlad and Ursula have prepared for just such an eventuality -- being over four hundred years old helps -- unfortunately Nathan has not. What formal attire Nathan does have is completely unsuitable for the occasion, not only is it decades out of date it's a little too rustic chic. It's unacceptable, not that Nathan can understand that.
Vlad and Ursula have their work cut out for them. Thankfully they have a few tricks up their respective sleeves to quite literally get the shirt off of Nathan's back.
