Severin was made to fight. Conceived as what the vampires call a mixed-blood when his vampire father raped his dreck mother over a century ago, Severin retained the power of iron skin inherent to newborn drecks. Sev keeps this secret closely guarded. If it's discovered that inferior dreck blood flows in his veins, it could destroy his life, which is already complicated enough. Not only has Sev's father made a sudden and unwelcome reappearance, but Sev suspects he's been marked by an assassin seeking blood vengeance. So when he falls for his teammate, Arion, a notorious playboy, that's the last thing Sev needs.
Arion is the son of one of King Bain's liaisons. Ari's overbearing parents had his course plotted before he was even born, but what his parents want for him isn't what Arion wants for himself. After finding out his new teammate Severin is gay, Arion develops a 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 about his sexuality 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 with one another, they will have to confront prejudice, plotting, the threat on Sev's life, and even each other. But will it be too little too late?
This book contains strong profanity and explicit, consensual sexual content between two males.
Recommended for fans of J.R. Ward, Lara Adrian, and Gena Showalter.

Donya Lynne is the author of the award winning All the King's Men Series and a member of Romance Writers of America. Making her home in a wooded suburb north of Indianapolis with her husband, Donya has lived in Indiana most of her life and knew at a young age that she was destined to be a writer. She started writing poetry in grade school and won her first short story contest in fourth grade. In junior high, she began writing romantic stories for her friends, and by her sophomore year, she’d been dubbed Most Likely to Become a Romance Novelist. In 2012, she made that dream come true by publishing her first two novels and a novella. Her work has earned her two IPPYs, one gold and one silver, as well as two eLit Awards, also one gold and one silver. When she’s not writing, she can be found cheering on the Indianapolis Colts or doing the bidding of her cats, Sophie and Bruiser.
