Lizbet “Beth” Hayes has been dumped by her boyfriend and betrayed by her best friend. To escape from reality, she stays home and delves into work by beta-testing a massively multiplayer online role-playing game — C.O.V.E.N., Clans of Vegas-Endless Night — the company she works for is creating. She’s consumed by the fantasy game, even going so far as to develop a crush on a vampire-warlock character named Godric. When a horrible thunderstorm hits, she’s sucked into the game for real and hooks up with the character. But fantasy can’t take the place of reality. Somehow she has to get home, and when she gets back, she and the man who’s stolen her heart have to find each other.
