Isao Nakamura is more than a martial arts instructor; he’s a vampire with the principles of a ninja warrior. Nevertheless, not even Isao’s discipline can refuse to give in to the magnetism of his human student, James.

Sensei is a short contemporary romance blended with vampire conflict. Exemplified in the story are the elements of compassion, secret desire, a hint of jealousy and sensual intimacy.   Isao is his own master; he refuses to bow down to the whims of the vampire clan, which is an insult to the clan leader. Isao is content to lead the same honorable life of the ninja he once was, only feeding on the dregs of society.  James is Isao’s best student, intelligent as well as a highly developed combatant. When Isao’s secrets are revealed, instead of fleeing, James stayed at Isao’s side. Sensei is an enjoyable and delightful saga.
