Auric's life couldn't have been better. Poseidon brought him back from the Fade to attend the wedding of his sister, Aurelia, and his best friend, and he even got his old job back as a Poseidon operative. But he should have read the fine print. Not only was he not going to be a skirt-chasing merman anymore, he was now a day-walking vampire partnered with a tall, blonde, Berserker who was so not on-board with being a walking blood donor. In fact, he was one step away from a PTSD melt down. Maybe telling him they'd been accidentally blood-bonded wouldn't be a good idea. Even their assignment was whacked. The rising Welsh singer they've been assigned to befriend, and uncover why he was cooperating with a Mexican gang running drugs into the LA/Hollywood area, has some seriously strange quirks. Every time someone accidentally touches the singer's blue dragon tattoo, a Star Wars-worthy holograph of a dark-haired beauty pops up and even though they've never met, she has been betrothed to the Welshman from birth. Whatever the singer is, he isn't a card-carrying human. Knowing when to fold 'em, Auric asks to be returned to the Fade forthwith only to learn all of the bad karma he'd earned, courtesy of his former sybaritic lifestyle, precludes any return unless it's feet first and not by his own hand. Well you don't become a top Poseidon operative unless you're resourceful and Auric has a plan. All he has to do is sharpen a sturdy stake and hand it to his thoroughly pissed off partner right after he whispers the three words his heart has wanted to say to the man from the moment they were introduced. Yep, that should get him a one-way flight back to the Fade.
