Morgan felt Cassius startle when he took his hand. The Empyreal did not resist his touch as they entered the majestic throne room beyond the gilded doors. If anything, he shifted closer to Morgan. Guilt tightened Morgan’s chest.

He knew he was being an ill-tempered asshole, but he couldn’t help it.

In their wisdom, the Dryads had assigned him and Cassius their most splendid guest suite. The lavish rooms took up the northwest corner of the first floor of the palace and offered dizzying views of the valley below the capital and the far-flung mountain ranges framing it. The suite also looked out onto a private garden guarded twenty-four-seven by palace guards, the windows and doorways open to the elements but for trellises heavy with flowers and ivy; despite the ice and snow-clad peaks above them, the air in the capital was eternally balmy. Only the bathing chamber and changing room in the suite offered some semblance of privacy, the gauzy curtains letting in the light while only hinting at the figures behind them.

All this meant he hadn’t made love to Cassius in a week.

The Empyreal had refused to even entertain the notion, claiming their bedroom sessions would be overheard by the palace guards. His look of utter disbelief when Morgan had promised to be quiet had done little to curb the Aerial’s frustration.

“You know as well as I do that that’s a big fat lie,” Cassius had scolded when Morgan had tried to get amorous during their bath two nights ago. He’d ignored Morgan’s raging erection and climbed out of the copper tub before turning to face him, hands on his hips and completely disregarding his own stirring cock. “Get it in your thick head. We’re not making out until we get back to San Francisco!”

“I might die by then,” Morgan had griped.

Cassius’s lips had flattened into a thin line before he’d marched out of the bathroom. Morgan had stared hotly at his alluring form and told himself attempting to seduce the Empyreal further would only end with him earning a black eye and likely having to suffer a longer period of enforced abstinence. Though Cassius knew Morgan’s sexual drive outdid his own, it didn’t mean he was willing to entertain his every desire. The fact that he stood up to Morgan and challenged his hot-blooded behavior was one of the many things Morgan loved about the beguiling Empyreal.

Still, he’d better be prepared. He’s not going to be able to walk for days when we get home. Morgan glanced at Cassius. His lover gave him a puzzled look. Make that a week.

The Gods have come to San Francisco… 

Cassius Black and Morgan King’s trip to Ivory Peaks to uncover clues about their past takes an unexpected turn when a rift materializes and war demons attack the capital. Having saved one world by the skin of their teeth, they return to Earth, only to find it has been rocked by ominous quakes bearing a close resemblance to the phenomenon that nearly destroyed the Dryad kingdom.

After defeating demons that emerge from a crevasse in San Francisco, Cassius and Morgan rescue the Wild God Pan from the bottom of a rift with the help of Victor Sloan and the city’s otherwordly. But instead of thanking them, Pan makes a startling demand: rescue his lover and prevent the Spirit Realm from being destroyed, and he will reveal the truth about who Cassius and Morgan are.

Help comes from an unexpected source when a pair of Reapers visit the city and Cassius, Morgan, and Victor soon go hunting for a missing deity who may hold the key to saving all the realms. Can they free the immortals from their prisons and find the powerful artefact that can bend the mind and will of even a God? Or will the enemy who has long manipulated them from the shadows win this war and destroy everything they have come to care for?
