Description: When Lieutenant Craig Faulk of the CDDC--Chicago Department of Demon Control--is called to a routine demon attack, he doesn't expect to find the victim alive. They never live long enough to speak. But handsome Steven Richter defies all odds. How and why has this self-proclaimed loser survived a demon attack when others much stronger have died? Steven knows he's not good enough for a man like Craig, but that doesn't stop him from dreaming. It's easy to fall for a rugged, cowboy demon-hunter in the mean streets of urban Chicago, one who's risked his life to save Steven. But Craig saves lives while Steven sells his body to make ends meet, and no way could anything come of the attraction both of them experience in each other's presence. Or could it? When Steven meets life's greatest challenge, he discovers for the first time that he has true value as an openly gay man. But will it be enough to erase his checkered past and win the heart of a demon-hunting cowboy? Genres: Gay / Dark Fantasy / Paranormal / Psychic Phenomena / Horror

"What the fuck!" a male voice said.
Craig moved away from the bed. A second scream turned him in the direction of the victim, who now lay on a stretcher, surrounded by the EMTs.
"What's happening?" another man asked.
Craig wasn't certain, but it couldn't be good. "I never see them still alive. It would be beside the point since the demons are eating their souls. This time it wasn't successful." And maybe that was the key to finding a way to stem the flood of chaos. How had this one survived when so many others had not?
"Are you sure the demon's gone?" one man asked and ducked.
"I'm certain it's not in the room with us, but it could still be close."
"What the fuck is stuffed inside this guy's penis?"
Craig closed the distance fast and bent to closer examine the gold speck he'd seen earlier in the victim's slit. Maybe this was what he was looking for. A talisman ... something. Demons were curious creatures in that they attached themselves to peculiar physical objects. "It's as if they need to connect themselves to humans with a man-made object, something tangible. If we knew the answers to why they do what they do, we'd be able to rid ourselves of their presence."
The victim lifted his hand to touch Craig shoulder. "I tried to cut it off."
"He cut his own cock?" one of the medical techs squeaked.
"What kind of guy would do something like that?"
Craig moved closer. "The kind who knows he has a demon's talisman shoved inside him. If that's what I think it is ... he's good as dead."
