Can Michigan and Lucas survive an attack and forge a new bond?


Michigan Sevion is in hell. As a diagnostician as Gelreen Memorial Hospital he has trained to find solutions and answers to all manner of symptoms and problems, but when it comes to his own life he finds himself hopelessly adrift. His sufletul pereche, his mate, Lucas Jaxson, was attacked by Razvan, the monstrous vampire, though Razvan looked like Michigan at the time, a week into their bonding process. Now, Lucas shakes and screams every time Michigan gets close and "the thirst" is getting worse.


There's only one way for Michigan to survive "the thirst" and that is for his bond with Lucas to be severed, completely, and the only way for that to happen is for either him or Lucas to die. Michigan can't even consider such a thing because he's already falling in love with his "little chef" but he may not have a choice, because Razvan's still on the loose and he's still out for blood.
