Ever since Janus took in Lyall, the only sticky situations he found himself in involved duct tape and maple syrup. All that changes when a new elder, Lore, enters the picture. His brutal touch can absorb power and talent from anything or anyone he wants. To combat him, Janus’s master asks Janus for a small favor.
Or rather, a large favor. Suddenly all the responsibility Janus had spent his vampire life avoiding catches up to him. Afterwards, he’s left with a lieutenant who hates him, lines that are already under attack, and sex with Lyall that is…well, okay. That’s still spectacular.
As for Vision, things should have been easy. Hanz is his perfect lieutenant, yet can still put Vision in his place and use him like no one else. Then along comes his ex, Seraph, under Lore’s orders, sniffing around his Hanz. It’s not like Vision can blame Hanz for finding Seraph irresistible.
As the lines continue to bleed out, it challenges everything. Vision must also repay an old favor, which has to be paid on his knees. It may cost him everything he has, but it’s not personal until Lore snatches Lyall.
Janus and Vision haven’t seen eye-to-eye on a lot of things, but if there is one thing they can agree on it is “favor” is a four letter word.
