A prince of demons and a prince of vampires are drawn together, but if they're going to live eternally together, they must overcome the challenges and enemies before them.


As a prince of demons, Sytri's existence has been for one thing, power. He's gained that in the demon realm, but his pursuit of it cost him something far greater...something he didn't realize the value of until it was gone. When he first met vampire prince, Basil Warrick, in an instant he saw--and desired--to have once again all that he'd lost; friendship, companionship...love.


Basil has lived for more than three hundred years, and quietly carries the scars left by the vampire who turned him. Connecting with others has never been easy for him, but Sy's sensual charm is more than he can resist. He knows Sy's history of betrayal, and the demon is exactly what he shouldn't want in his life, and yet, Sy is /all/he wants.


The return of an old enemy of Basil's brings painful memories and danger to him, and a new enemy of Sy's threatens to take away what he's gaining in his life. If their lives are to be eternally bound, the two princes must overcome the threats and challenges before them.
