Unjustly exiled to a notorious penal colony, vampire Val Cutter is immediately attracted to a gorgeous stranger. Despite his usual caution, he quickly falls for Paul de l'Astre.
Paul, a prisoner subjected to Retkove's cruel experiments, wants only to return to his planet -- until he meets Val. But Val could never survive on the sun-worshipping planet of Apoll'ex, and Paul will die if his sunlight deprivation continues.
When they discover the true purpose of Retkove's experiments, Paul must make the choice of a lifetime: the man he's come to love more than life itself, or the world he once called home?
This collection contains the previously released novellas From the Light, In the Dark, and To the Light.
