Blurb: When a new enemy comes out of the dark, the human head of the Human/Specs Enforcer Union is forced to work with his vampire counterpart. Can London put aside his dislike of Pascal St-Maurice to fight a common enemy?
Captain London Weaver hates the dark season, the time when the skies over Spectrum turn dark and stay that way for months. It’s when all the crazies come out, and the humans are at a definite disadvantage.
When a new enemy comes out of the dark, London joins forces with his immortal counterpart, Captain Pascal St-Maurice, a vampire who, as far as London is concerned, is a fancy pants with no respect for anything. In Pascal’s opinion, London is anal, uptight, and prejudiced against his species. When they’re ordered to work together to confront a succubus that doesn’t discriminate among victims, Pascal decides to make the best of it. However, that doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy.
Come and visit Spectrum Skies, a place where mortals and immortals have learned to live together in peace…or something like that.
CONTENT ADVISORY: This title contains both MM and MMM scenes.
Review: London is the captain of the human side of the Human/Specs Enforcer Union and dislikes most things supernatural, especially the Vampires. But, now as a new threat is uncovered, he has to work closely with one, Pascal. Pascal is the captain of the Specs side of the Human/Specs Enforcer Union and likes most humans, but London gets right up his nose. When he finds out he has to work closely with London, he decides to have some fun.
This is a well written imaginative story with a really good plot and story-line. London has something in his past that has colored his judgment against vampires. When he has to work with Pascal, he tries hard not to soften towards the sexy vampire. Pascal does everything he can to get London to bend and really enjoys winding him up in the process. As the two get closer to cracking the case, the two MCs get closer as well. When Pascal’s life is in danger London does everything he can to save him.
These two MCs strike sparks off each other. The banter between them is brilliant and so are the sex scenes… very hot. I liked how Pascal draws London’s slight submissive side out and how he also submits to London as well. It was a very well done power exchange between them and the emotions that they share are quite erotic and touching. I thought that these two characters were well suited and have a lot of potential as a couple. The M/M/M scene is short and sweet and is all about the sex.
I have got to say that the setting is incredible, a hidden world in the South Pacific Islands where for 3 months of the year it stays mainly dark and the supernatural beings baser instincts come to the fore. Absolutely fantastic, I loved it, what an incredible imagination D.J. Manly has.
So I recommend this to those who love paranormal, fantasy, hot men and hot vamps, even hotter sex, a bit of BDSM, a bit of danger and a really great story-line.
