Happily married with the affection and respect of those he holds dear, Fabian Bloom finally finds inner peace. However, fresh nightmares about his horrific past start to plague the man’s sleep, shadowing his newfound happiness and worrying the one he loves. A trip to his cabin in Montana offers the opportunity for the couple to relax and enjoy the solitude of the place.
After reuniting with his two sons, marrying the man he had loved for eleven years and watching his young protegees blooming into strong young men, Lance Hansen has everything he ever wished for. When his husband’s past is revealed in all its darkness and horror, the man is completely unprepared, and their world begins to crumble.
Will the two men be able to face the ghosts that threaten to destroy everything they love and fight so hard for? Or will they end up sucked into a whirlwind that will rip them apart forever?
Alexander Kane studied the man sitting across the desk, surprised by his serene, somewhat detached demeanor. When Fabian Bloom agreed to meet with him, he expected him to crawl at his feet and beg him to spare Ardan MacNamara and take him in his place. But it didn’t happen that way. Here he sat, silent and dignified, a stern expression on his face… as if he—rather than Kane—were the one in control. A brief, troubling thought struck Alexander as he considered Fabian was, indeed, the stronger of the two of them… and him remaining with Alexander had been by choice to destroy the child trafficking ring from within. What if Fabian had been behind Ardan’s escape? He dismissed the thought, recalling how broken Fabian had been when the two of them first met. However, his former plaything’s willingness to meet with him left Alexander with a sense of unease. Would he come here without at least one ace up his sleeve? Alexander didn’t like being in the dark in such matters—didn’t fucking like it at all. Even back when he was under hypnosis and on drugs, Fabian had given him headaches. Always so hard to read. Perhaps Fabian was waiting for him to lose his temper and hit him like before. If so, he was in for a disappointment. During Alexander’s seven-year absence, he had learned to control his temper. Checking his watch, Kane decided to throw out some morsels and see if he could get some reactions from Fabian. “So, Bloom, this is the deal; I’ll show you the photos proving Ardan MacNamara killed me seven years ago—then I’ll destroy them, as promised. Before I do, you will give me your word that you’ll do all I ask of you.” Alexander’s voice remained calm, much to Fabian’s surprise. Fabian nodded. “I’ll give you my word, but how can I be sure you don’t have extra copies of the photos that you’ll use against Ardan in the future?” Fabian leaned forward, eyes narrow and piercing.
