Tom Blackfield was dying, he wanted to die, but his father needs him alive for a dark spell. So Tom was given a deamon. But a deamon must come from a murdered shifter. That murdered shifter was Derek Christian's mate. He arrived too late to save his lover, and finds Tom instead. Enraged, Derek takes Tom with every intention of punishing him. But he soon stops himself. Tom isn't an evil sorcerer, and as the months go by, Derek can't figure out if he wants the man so badly because his former mate is now part of Tom, or if he wants Tom for reasons of his own. Tom doesn't know either, but he finds himself getting closer to Derek regardless, wanting the man's touch and his kisses. When Tom's father steals him away, determined to go through with the ritual that would give him immortality, Derek must act before he loses another man he loves to dark magic.
