What lurks in the dark is not always a monster. Sometimes it’s your deepest desire.
Long ago, Val made the decision to stick by his captain against mutinous shipmates. He has spent a millennium on Earth protecting humans as a matter of honor. He also made the fatal mistake of falling in love with a human boy who died trying to birth Val’s son. He’s sworn to never open himself up to such pain and guilt again.
Mackie was forced to run away from his family to save himself from homophobia and abuse. He learned to live by his wits and the sale of his body. He’s reinvented himself as a brat with a need to be dominated and tamed. He thought he’d found the perfect man in Val, only to discover he had given his heart to a vampire—one that pushed him away when an ancient, hidden war reignited.
As Val and his cohorts battle with their old crew members, he tries to keep Mackie at a distance from the danger and his heart. But Mackie will not be side-lined as either a soldier or a lover. He is waging a war of his own to win Val back.
The next chapter in the alien war is heating up. A deadly drug is flooding Boston, threatening to turn the city into a battleground. Val and the others need help, and one bratty twink might be the best weapon they have. He may also be the key to unlocking Val’s heart and giving him back the happiness he lost.
There are good and bad vampires... the ones who want to take over humanity and the ones who live among the humans, love them and protect them against the bad and dangerous vamps.
Several centuries ago, Val lost his human partner while he was giving birth to their child.
He decides never to fall in love again. And here he is… pushing Mackie away because he was getting to close. They had a wonderful BDSM relationship and now it’s over.
Mackie, a beautiful young man who ran away from his homophobic and abusive home, is now living under the protection of the club where he is a dancer. He is witty and a brat, demanding a strong dominant hand from Val… only Val packed his bags and Mackie had to move into the club to live.
An undefinable drink does strange things to humans and there are people dying. They have to stop the enemy. Mackie thinks, by making himself useful in this battle, he will have a chance to win back Val’s heart.
This is a good developed story, consuming, well written with a pleasant pace, no rush and certainly not too slow.
Mackie and Val's relationship was put down with a great dynamic. Their scenes are delicious to watch. They both have well-established personalities.
The whole vampire scenery was great, it almost made me wish, the good parts of it, could be real.
The story stayed strong and compelling, the plot was really well put together, it didn’t weaken.
Overall an engaging read which I enjoyed very much.
