Eternally destined to be lovers, the lusty vampires meet again, this time as mortal enemies in seventeenth century France.
When the story opens, Joey has been sold into slavery to a French nobleman whose "patriotism" includes providing sexual release for weary soldiers. When the delicious French Captain, Daniel Dubois (Dino) shows up, he recognizes Joey as the nephew to none other than the King of England. Having seen his own death in a dream, he wants desperately to make one last trip to England. He seizes the opportunity by offering to rescue Joey and take him home.
Joey is immediately drawn to the beautiful Captain, yet suspicious of his motives. He has no idea why Dubois would risk his life to rescue him, especially since he appears to have no sexual interest in him. However, a voice inside of him tells him the young Captain is his destiny. On the journey to England, Joey's memory of their past life together is restored . Daniel, on the other hand is completely oblivious. Joey knows he must make Daniel remember. To do that, he will seduce him and win his love. However, this proves to be no easy feat, especially after Joey discovers the real reason Daniel is taking him home.
He reached for his hand and pulled him to his feet. He took him into his arms and held him for a moment, touching his hair. Then he looked up into his eyes and said, "Kiss me, Daniel."
Daniel lowered his mouth to his. They kissed deeply, then, drew apart.
Joey began to take off his clothes while the Captain watched him silently.
When he stood there naked, he said, "Touch me. Make love to me. It will be the last time." His throat ached with unshed tears as Daniel reached out and touched his face. He ran his hand down the length of his chest, causing him to shudder violently.
"I do not understand this desire you have for me," he whispered, bringing his lips down to his chest. "Why do you want me so much?"
He closed his eyes and laid his hands on his head, letting the silky strands of hair move through his fingers. "Because you are part of my soul. You are beautiful, Daniel, my lover, my heart."
Daniel raised his head now and held out his hand. He led him to the bed and pulled him down with him. "Then make me feel it, Joey. Show me."
Joey looked down into those beautiful dark eyes. He tried to gage what he was feeling but they were impossible to read. He lowered his lips to his and took his bottom lip into his mouth. He sucked on it a minute, then ran his tongue over it. Unable to resist for a second longer, he covered his entire mouth with his. He felt him yield, surrender to the possession of his mouth as he moved one hand down over his thigh.
