Ice Man

Feeding and sex go hand in hand when you’re a blood slave to a vampire. It’s like a drug and Rowan is hooked. With the vampire Theron, Rowan has never wanted for more than his next fix. Until he meets Brett. Brett is hot, the sex is incredible and he’s human. Brett is looking for kinky sex when he goes to The Catacombs, an exclusive fetish club for men. Flair bartender Rowan, also known as Ice Man, is sexy and mysterious. Brett isn’t ready to complicate his life with a lover outside The Catacombs and Rowan isn’t interested in club-scene sex but coming together and giving in never felt so good. Rowan’s dark secret could destroy everything. He must never allow Brett to learn of his symbiotic relationship with the vampire. He has to choose—tell Brett the truth or remain a blood slave. He can only hope that Brett will trust in love enough to forgive him.

This is one of those stories that sticks with you and makes you ponder for awhile after finishing. There is so much going on in this novella - sex and the emotions that go with it, some serious emotional baggage for all parties involved and some interesting insights into the world of vampires and their blood slaves. I loved the vulnerability of both Rowan and Brett (and to a lesser degree, Theron). Not that their vulnerabilities detract in any way from their masculinity or sexuality, it only serves to deepen it. The ending came as a bit of a surprise for me, I didn't have a clue how everyone in this triangle would get what they wanted, but Kyann Waters resolved the problem beautifully. And I'm happy to say, the next installment in the series is out so I'm headed off to read it now!
