In 1940's London, Sergeant Nathan Stephenson and Adam Locke had an intimate relationship. All consuming, it seemed doomed from the start since Adam is a vampire and Nathan refuses to be turned. The refusal leaves a damaged man fighting for survival. Enter Will Bosworth to deal with the gruesome aftermath. Unbeknownst to Adam, this changes the course of their history. Seventy years later Will approaches Nathan for a favor he has little choice in refusing. His decision brings repercussions.

Does one have the right to turn you against your will? Is it a purely selfish act although love is the motivating factor? An intriguing yet a bit unusual spin on the typical vampire tale. I thought the characterization very strong. Nathan and Adam are two interesting characters in their own right, but even more so when interacting. The supporting characters fulfilled their duties too, and not just by giving blood. The dialogue was sharp and often humorous. The actual sexual moments are what you expect between two strong male vampires. Some of the emotional upheaval came at the end. I felt in comparison to the years both men suffered, the ending was abrupt. Overall,a pretty good read.
