Beau thought Aaron was dead to him… Imagine his surprise when his former lover slinks into his tattoo shop.
Eight months ago, vampire Beaudelaire Delacourte had it all. As a tattoo artist, he used his special ink and spells to permanently tattoo other immortals and spent countless hours feeding and indulging in BDSM with his human lover, Aaron. Then he asked to turn Aaron so his lover could join him permanently, but Aaron refused, not willing to give up his humanity. Since then, Beau has kept his head down and stayed in his shop, only interacting with his clients who all come for his special brand of ink.
When Aaron shows up on his doorstep, half-dead and apologizing, Beau is shocked to learn that his boy was turned at the local vampire club by Stephan, another vampire. Not only was Aaron turned, but his chest was torn open, his fangs were broken and he was left in an alley to die. Spurred by the need to see Beau one last time, Aaron has been hiding in an abandoned building until he found the strength to make it to Beau’s shop.
Beau takes his boy in again, promising that Aaron will earn his place back in Beau’s bed, and vowing that he will take revenge on Stephan. Unbeknownst to Beau, Aaron is only the first in a long line of humans who Stephan has created then turned out to fend for themselves. As Beau discovers that this is only one of the old rules that Stephan has broken, he and Aaron are drawn into a web of intrigue that can only end in someone’s death.
About the Author
Sean fantasizes about one day retiring on a secluded island populated entirely by horseshoe crabs after inventing a brain-to-computer dictation system. Until then, Sean will continue to write the old-fashioned way.
In Reclaiming, we meet Beau and Aaron. They had a Dom/sub relationship until Aaron said he didn't want to be turned, and walked away. Realising he'd made a mistake, he compounded that by going to "the club" to try to find Beau. Instead, he gets tortured and turned against his will, and basically thrown to the kerb. Beau spends the next six months unaware of what has happened to Aaron, and mourns his loss. When Aaron and Beau get back together, the heat is off the charts! Aaron feels like he has to earn back Beau's love; and calls him 'Sir' instead of 'Master' as he feels like he failed him. Beau is aware of Aaron's feelings, and does what he can, within the "rules" of their relationship to help him where he can. With Stephen's story (antagonist) coming throughout the book, it builds up very nicely to the ending. Witches, Elders, Ancients, they're all here. Reclaiming involves LOTS of play between Aaron and Beau, plus tattoos and piercings as part of the play. Very well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow, this is a book to be enjoyed and recommended. * I received this book from Pride Publishing in return for a fair and honest review. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
