Background: In Bound by the Vampire Queen, it was mentioned that Gideon and Daegan had a friendly bet in play. When Lyssa asked Anwyn to give her the details, Anwyn replied: “Gideon thinks you’ll have to beat Lord Belizar to a bloody pulp to get him to listen to reason. Daegan thinks you’ll have to stake him and start from scratch. If Gideon wins”—she glanced at Daegan, confirming he was fine revealing the nature of the agreement—“he wants Daegan to set aside his Master role for one night. Gideon wants to . . . take Daegan.”
Long and short, Gideon won the bet (small spoiler for those who haven’t read BbtVQ, yes, but nothing big – you know we couldn’t kill off grumpy Lord Belizar), so this vignette is the long-awaited fulfillment of those terms.

Before you download! There are numerous devices available for reading e-books and some are more friendly to reading downloaded files than others. It can be as simple as emailing the file to your device or it can be extremely complicated. The following linked file attempts to provide some direction for opening and reading ebooks on the various devices. If you consider yourself to be "technically challenged", you might want to ask a technically gifted friend or relative to read these instructions and walk you through loading a downloaded ebook in your device for the first time. If you have trouble with the file once it's loaded on the device you might want to try using the Generic format instead of the version tweaked for your device. While we can't provide comprehensive technical support for the plethora of devices that are available for reading e-books, we've put together some guidance that we hope will steer you in the right direction. Please read the following PDF for guidance on how to load your downloaded e-book onto some of the more common reading apps and devices.
