Erik has known that Billy was his un amor since the day the man walked in for the editing job, four months ago. It has not been easy watching Billy walk in and out of the office and act as if the man was not destined to change Erik's life, but how do you tell a man, that is human, you are an enforcer for your vampire coven and he is your mate? Well, some things just can't be put off for long, especially when Erik discovers his mate had been placed in grave danger.
Billy loved his job, as an editor, for Romancing the Readers Publishers, until he made what he thought was the biggest discovery in his career. Telling his boss, their company’s most prize author, Dimitri, is a plagiarist was difficult, but not nearly as difficult as finding out that things really do go bump in the night and the plagiarist author was an evil vampire bent on destroying him.
Will Erik ever get to claim his un amor as his own, or will Billy run when he finds out that they are destined mates and Erik has every intention of sinking his fangs into him before Dimitri can?

Billy jerked back at the venomous way Erik had spoken to him. It kind of reminded him of the way Dimitri had a little over a month ago. A time Billy was still trying really hard to forget.
Not sleeping at night was really taking its toll on Billy. He almost regretted fighting Cory so hard about going home, but he had stayed there a week and knew he needed to get back to his life. Putting what happened with Dimitri behind him.
However, in the three weeks since Billy was home, every creak in the floor or groan of his place, had Billy on edge. It seemed like, whenever he tried closing his eyes, he would see Dimitri's glowing red ones and feel those nasty hands on his body.
Billy's had just started sleeping a couple of hours a night, when Erik approached him with another novel, by Dimitri. He was asked to edit it and get it back to the man quickly. The thought of touching anything that nasty beast had touched made Billy's stomach roll.
However, he knew it was his job and he wanted to get it over with as quickly as possible.
When he had started reading the book, he had felt like it was déjà vu. Billy knew he had read this story once before, or at least something extremely similar. It was when he had come to the sex scenes that Billy knew exactly where he had seen this story before.
"Billy, I asked you a fucking question and I want an answer right now! Why were you with Dimitri? Is there something going on with you two? Are you fucking him?" Erik snapped.
"I would never..." Cory gasped as he backed quickly towards the door, "Erik, why are your eyes glowing red? Wh...What's wrong with your teeth?"
Erik realized too late that he had vamped. He could smell Billy's fear and immediately felt the need to comfort his mate. The problem was that he was the one to cause his un amor's distress.
"Please Billy, let me explain." Erik beseeched, as he moved slowly towards his mate.
"Cory said I was delusional, but I knew what I saw was right!" Cory said in dismay.
"What the hell are you talking about? Knew you were right about what?" Erik asked.
"About vampires being real. I told Cory I saw Dimitri's eyes turn red, but he didn't believe me, Hell, he almost had me thinking I was crazy, but who's the crazy one now?" Cory said almost hysterically.

Another new series by Cree Storm!!!! I love stories about fated mates and those who threaten to take them away. Erik tries to come up with a way to tell his Un Amor what he is and what Billy is to him. It takes deceit from a coven member to finally have Erik claim what is his. I love how Billy will teach this coven that he will not be silent. Will definitely breathe new life into these Century old vampires.
I cannot wait for the next book.
Wasn't sure what I was gonna find in this story from the first couple of chapters, but it only got better and better. Billy might be human, but he's a match in every way for Eric and his vampire family. A must read that is going on my reread pile and waiting for the next book.
