Daniel Valente and Ryunosuke Kimura knew each other for centuries, and when Daniel saw the love Ryu had for him and how it had endured for lifetimes, their lives became forever entwined. In recognizing that love, the two vampires became eternal partners, those with a bond deep and unbreakable.
They’re living in peace and happiness, until a call comes inviting Ryunosuke to interview for the Tribunal, the ruling body of vampire society. Both Daniel and Ryu know everything is about to change. Danger will come with the position and the greatest threat may be from one of the Tribunal members. Daniel and Ryunosuke’s protective instincts are strong, their love even stronger, but when old grudges demand retribution, will those instincts be enough to keep each other safe?
I loved this book but that is no surprise to me as S.J. Frost is one of my most favorite MM author. This book was a great way to catch up with all the characters of the Instincts series, but especially Daniel and Ryu. This author just has a way of making the whole story believable even vampires. This story was primarily about Ryu need to protect Daniel but Daniel shows Ryu he can be a fierce fighter.
This book has love, intensity and good old fun all rolled into one amazing story and can’t wait for the next installment.
