Overview

Each night Simon Saint-Saens hunts the creatures of darkness that others fear--beings that come through dimensional rifts into our world from a world called Vertigo. Simon has unexplained superpowers that help him fight, but his is a desolate existence, fraught with danger. He works by himself and never allows anyone to get too close to him because his powers come at a terrible cost--a secret he's never revealed to anyone. Better to be alone than jeopardize the life of someone he cares about. Enslaved in Vertigo for years, Jaden Cole was one of the innocent lives Simon saved when he first started hunting. Jade had almost forgotten what it meant to be human...until Simon found him and brought him back to this world. But when their friendship turned into something more, Simon sent Jade away and cut him out of his life to keep Jade safe. Nine years later, when a new, powerful evil stirs to life in Vertigo and targets Simon as its enemy, Jade returns. He's not the same innocent he was all those years ago, though. Now he has his own secret, one that could turn Simon against him, even force Simon to kill him. But Jade's willing to risk everything, even his life, to save the man he's always loved.

Read an Excerpt

Simon's hand slid lower, cradling Jade's ass, and his other hand came up to tangle in his hair. Then his lips were against Jade's forehead, his eyes, and finally his mouth in a gentle, tentative touch, as if he were afraid Jade might break or disappear.

For Jade, the contact was electric, a gift he'd thought he'd never again receive. With a soft moan, he opened to Simon willingly, slid his hands beneath Simon's coat to clutch his waist, and leaned into him.

At Jade's easy acceptance, Simon's hesitation morphed into a raw, desperate hunger that stole Jade's breath. It was a side of Simon he'd never seen. The last time, he'd been the one to initiate the contact with Simon, and their coming together, brief though it was, had been sweet and almost cautious on Simon's part. This, however, was both better and more fierce than it had been nine years ago. Maybe because there were nine years of pent-up need between them.

Not a day had gone by that he hadn't thought of Simon, hadn't wanted him. Now he wondered why he'd waited so long to come back.

You know why ... because you're not the same as you were before. And neither is he. Simon's a man on a mission now, hunting and killing creatures like you.

But Simon hadn't killed him outside when he'd had a chance.

He's still uncertain, though. You saw it in his eyes. If you continue playing with fire like this, he's going to break your heart again.

The last time Jade had had a taste of what being with Simon was really like, had let himself care, it felt as if his heart had been ripped from his body when Simon backed off. If he let himself get too close and it happened again, if Simon shut him outagain, this time he feared he'd lose his soul.

Yet even knowing the risk, he didn't think he had the willpower to step away now. Not with the way Simon was kissing him, touching him. His callused hands roamed Jade's body, tracing the contours of his chest, brushing over his nipples, exploring his back, stroking his hips, kneading his ass. Their groins moved in sync, rocking together, trying to get as close as possible.

Simon touched him like a man dying of thirst who'd just found water. And Jade didn't have any desire to stop him because he felt the same way.
