Description: Jesse Madding has been working for Gideon, a vampire fighting to maintain the balance between good and evil, for two years, and has loved him for nearly that long. When Gideon slams him against an alley wall and demands sex, Jesse is too happy to oblige, but it opens doors in their relationship that Gideon isn't sure he wants to enter. Especially since he suspects he was under the powerful influence of an unknown substance, and Jesse is his best friend. As they try to negotiate a new relationship involving Jesse's willing submission to Gideon's darker desires--including bondage, pain, and bloodplay--they learn that a new drug is being distributed in the city. Known simply as "obsidian," this drug unleashes a vampire's demon, destroying any sense of self-control. Widespread use of obsidian could bring chaos to Chicago and turn the city into a bloodbath, but even as Jesse and Gideon race to contain it, they're consumed and distracted by their own growing passion and burgeoning emotions...

"5 Hearts! ... With a keen eye to detail, and an outstanding imagination, Jamie Craig writes a story that literally leaves the reader hungering for the next volume in the series. Gideon and Jesse are characters who will get under the reader's skin and become like well-loved friends. The sensuality sizzles right off the page, and readers should be cautioned that it is hot, erotic, and explicit!"--Annie, The Romance Studio
"5 Stars! ... Dark-erotic tale ... The characters indulge in every sexual act known to man and vampire. It is my guess that when you have been around for hundreds of years you require something extra during sex. This seemed to be true for Gideon. He relishes his partner's submission and tests it on many occasions. Jesse is always up for whatever Gideon has in mind. Loosing blood is nothing compared to what he gains. It is crazy how much I like this story. The blood letting alone should repulse me, but here I am singing the novel's praises. The sex is amazingly erotic. My attachment to the characters came easily. I believe their coming together is destiny. As for the plot, it could not be more dramatic. Can you imagine a city full of messed up vampires? The supporting cast is wickedly entertaining. I am not dying to know what happens to them in the future, yet their actions ... make the pages turn faster. It is definitely a keeper. Matter of fact, I believe I will read it again."--Suni Farrar, Just Erotic Romance Reviews
"Now I think I'm a little insulted here." Gideon handled the axe with a nonchalant ease that gave no indication how heavy the weapon really was. It swung slightly from his fingers as he edged forward, forcing Jesse to retreat until he felt the cold wall of the building at his back. "You don't find me even a little bit threatening, Jess? And be honest now." He leaned in conspiratorially. "Because I'll know if you're lying."
Jesse's stomach dropped. He remembered how frightened he had been of Gideon in the beginning, but he had let that fear go--mostly. Oddly, it wasn't the fact that Gideon was a vampire that left his palms clammy and his heart thudding. He was more aware of Gideon's basic masculinity than anything else. "A little."
The smirk returned. "A little is good." Gideon lifted a hand and rested it, palm flat, against the wall by Jesse's ear. "A little keeps you on your toes. Unless it's not your toes you're interested in being on."
Jesse was so distracted by the fact he was thoroughly trapped that it took a few seconds for the meaning of Gideon's words to sink in. Swallowing audibly, he murmured, "I don't know what you're talking about."
"See, now, I think you do. Smart guy like you, you don't really need it all spelled out for you, do you?"
And there it was. The definite press of Gideon's hips against his. The hard outline of a thick cock beneath thin trousers. The heat of the alley didn't seem nearly as bad as the heat that suddenly shot through Jesse's groin.
