An assassin out for revenge could take away Ari’s last chance to face the truth about his feelings for Severin . . . forever.
Conceived from a vampire father and a dreck mother, Severin keeps his lineage closely guarded. If anyone discovers that inferior blood flows in his veins, it could destroy his life, which is already complicated enough. Not only has Sev's father made an unwelcome reappearance, but Sev suspects he's been marked by an assassin seeking blood vengeance. The last thing he needs is to fall for fellow enforcer, Arion, but he’s already lost his heart to the notorious playboy.
Arion’s overbearing parents had his course plotted before he was born, but what his parents want for him isn't what Arion wants. After finding out Severin is gay, Arion develops a deep fascination for him that goes beyond curiosity. Their racy encounter just a month before was no fluke, and Arion realizes he's been living a lie his entire life, forcing himself to be with females because that's what was expected of him. But what he wants is a male, and not just any male. Arion wants Severin.
If Sev and Ari stand a chance at finding happiness together, they will have to confront prejudice, intrigue, the threat on Sev's life, and even each other. But will it be too little too late?
