When the lines between nightmares and reality become blurred, it’s time to wake up and put an end to life’s horrors.

When Ben reveals yet more of his secrets, including a piquant part of his past and the last vital element in the plan to put an end to their enemy’s evil deeds, Colin is determined to see this plan through—whatever it takes. He surrenders to vampire Dom Ben’s special brand of training technique and finds some solace in the fact that a ménage à trois with a vampire is a very satisfying arrangement for an incubus demon.

Fuelled by his lovers’ highly potent emotions, Colin’s demon side is stronger than ever mentally, but his weakness lies in his heart. He struggles to accept the truths he can no longer deny and the time has come for him to reconsider what he knows about the people he thought he could trust—and those he thought he couldn’t.

As the last pieces of the puzzle fall into place and people reveal their true colours, Colin realises that some horrors linger even after he has woken from the nightmare.

Meet the Author

Sage has been passionate about books from a very early age on and dreamt of writing one for years while working on the day job instead. It took a very persistent character in the company of a treasured Muse to finally get the first novel going. The fact that he was gay came as a bit of a surprise, but it explained a lot.

Ever since, Sage has been the willing slave to all the fascinating guys who just keep queuing up and want their stories told. This has resulted in several manuscripts at various stages of completion, so there's always something to work on - preferably at night when the rest of the house is asleep.

Sage's characters often have a dramatic and sometimes traumatic past and need to battle some demons to be with the one they love. It doesn't hurt that they usually get quite a lot of naughty action along the way!

Sage loves to hear from readers, so go ahead please…

“We have a problem,” I told Ben as soon as I marched into his room—his office this time, not his private playroom. I still doubted that we even stood a chance at all, but Mikey’s pep talk at the hospital had convinced me that I was the one who could take down Pete and his evil gang—or die trying.

Arching one perfectly shaped eyebrow, Ben regarded me. “Good evening to you, too. It may be best—”

“We don’t have time for pleasantries, Ben,” I snapped. “I’m serious. We have a real problem. More than that—this has the potential to destroy our plan.”

The haughty expression vanished from Ben’s face. “Tell me.”

“Pete has given me an ultimatum. I have forty-three and a half hours left to…um, get you out of the way.”

“Oh. Well, that’s good to know.” He looked at me with perfect indifference. “I suppose that means we’re going to spend that time training you. Did you get back together with Sasha?”

I nodded.

“Good. Your energy levels are high, so I take it the reunion was successful.”

“It was.”

“Excellent. Did you bring him?”

“No. There’s…something else I need to tell you.”

My tone must have caught Ben’s attention. His eyes narrowed briefly and a hint of suspicion had crept into them. “What’s that?”

“Another complication. Sasha’s dad is in hospital, just recovering from emergency surgery. Sash is with him, as is Mikey.”

“I’m sorry. I hope his condition is stable and he will get well soon.” It was the kind of phrase people always seemed to say in these situations and I could tell Ben just spooled it off while he focused on the effect this had on us. “That could indeed complicate things, but I doubt that Sasha will be able to resist your seduction techniques.”

I winced and grimaced. “No, probably not. I may have to put a little more effort into it, but that isn’t what bothers me.”

“Well, what is?”

“Pete knows we’re up to something and he said he wanted to teach me a lesson. He said if I didn’t comply, Sash would be next.”

Ben frowned. “That sounds ominous. What has he done?”

“That’s the thing,” I replied reluctantly. “Mikey wasn’t with us when we saw Pete and I thought… Well, I thought they’d harmed him, but we came home and he was fine and dandy—apart from being upset because of Sasha’s dad, who happened to have just suffered this unexpected brain haemorrhage.”

“And now you think they had something to do with that?”

“I’m not sure. You see, I was certain they’d gone after Mikey, but he’s okay and it would be just too much of a coincidence. I just…”


Chewing my lip, I tried to find the right words to express my thoughts but I didn’t want to say them out loud. “Forget it, Ben. This is just me being stressed out, I guess. I’m panicking, seeing things where there is nothing. If Pete had wanted to teach me a lesson by hurting Mikey, he would have done so, don’t you think?”

Ben continued to look at me for another moment, then he twitched his shoulders. “I suppose so. Anyway, speaking of teaching someone a lesson—it’s time for us to get started. There’s someone I’d like you to meet.”

I stared at him, more uneasy than curious, but he just smiled back. “It’s okay, Colin. He’s one of the good boys.”

“Right. I hope so.”

“He is. Trust me.”

“I do.”

I felt his presence on my mind even before the door opened and he entered the room. I couldn’t quite place him, didn’t know who he was, only that he was a he—and powerful.
