Loki Kirkberry hasn't had it easy. Abandoned as a newborn, Loki has had to navigate life under difficult and shame-inducing circumstances. When firefighters Cole Ryker and Chaz Savage rescue him from an apartment fire, Loki is embraced by all of their friends and welcomed as family. He quickly finds out that shifters and vampires do exist. And then there's that whole "by the way, you're a warlock" thing. Sexy vampire hybrid Cezar Tarus has been eyeing sweet, succulent Loki since they met. A recent bloody throw-down with the evil Titans showed Loki that Cezar does actually care for him. But can he truly believe Cezar wont hurt him? He's a warlock but he IS part vampire, too -- and barely in control of that side. Cezar has tried for months, without success, to forget blond-haired, aquamarine-eyed Loki. His vampire wants Loki badly, but so does his human side. Since Cezar has no frame of reference, he has zero idea how to express himself emotionally. When he finds out that Loki had a coffee date with a certain sexy hitman, he flies into action and asks the smaller warlock for a date. Both men are surprised when Loki agrees. Sparks and emotions fly as the men realize that they are falling for one another. Remember the Titans? Yep. Those pesky gods and their despicable, slobbery rogue minions continue to rain hell down on the Olympian alliance, and trust is hard come by. As more trouble looms, Cezar and Loki will have to fight to nurse those sparks into a bonfire
