Annie sees nothing horrific in ripping out veins in dance club bathrooms. She and her friend Will lack superhuman sexiness and don’t dress in black leather; they discuss the advantages of high SPF sunblock and debate the origins of vampire myths.
Annie begins to accept the loss of her old lover with the help of a human psychologist who doesn’t believe in vampires, but when she finds an orphaned baby at another vampire’s house, Annie must set aside her grief. She rescues the baby on impulse and decides to care for him until the bites on his arms and legs have healed. But Annie is unprepared for the challenge of caring for someone, especially now that her best friend has set out in search of answers about vampires and hasn’t been seen for weeks.
Annie struggles alone to save the baby while she is tortured with worry about her friend and with regret about the past. Her psychologist grows more convinced that Annie might actually be a vampire, and he helps her understand that she will never be the mother that her adopted son needs. When her best friend returns with more answers than he ever expected to find, Annie is almost ready to find a new home for the baby and to start something new with the friend who has loved her for years.
