November 5th, 2012
On a camping trip in Louisiana, Wesley finds himself sucked down a hidden portal and thrown into another realm where he meets Remus, a warrior vampire. With the help of Remus, Wesley embarks on an adventure to find his way home, back to a world not filled with vampires and dragons and magic folk. Along his journey, the handsome vampire finds his way into Wesley’s heart. But will his love for Remus overcome his fears of the creatures that reign in this world?
Remus has never wanted a man before, but finds himself drawn to Wesley despite his denying efforts. He’s happy with his life as the commander of the vampires, and has had no interest in finding a mate. But after Wesley is kidnapped, Remus discovers his feelings for the man are stronger than he thought. Is he strong enough, though, to honor Wesley’s wish to return home, and let go of the man he loves?
Remus smiled at him. “I have something for you.” He took Wes’s hand and led him back to the bedroom. Remus guided him over to the wardrobe, opened the left door, and positioned Wes to stand in front of the mirror that hung on the back of it. “Close your eyes,” he said, a hint of excitement in his voice.
Wes smiled at Remus’s beaming reflection in the mirror, and then closed his eyes. He heard the soft steps of Remus’s bare feet against the stone floor, then the opening and closing of what Wes assumed was one of the drawers to his desk. His smiled widened when he felt his man behind him once again, loving the closeness. He was slightly startled when he felt what he knew was a necklace being placed around his neck. He had no idea what Remus was up to when the man told him to close his eyes, but he still would have never guessed this.
“Open your eyes,” Remus breathed against his ear, sending a shiver down Wes’s spine.
Wes gasped when he opened his eyes, and immediately felt the tears begin to gather once again. Remus’s family mark, perfectly sculpted out of some sort of shiny black metal, hung on a silver chain around his neck. Wes’s hand shook as he reached up and caressed the emblem. He had it. The one thing he never thought he’d possess, he did… Remus’s mark. It may not be ingrained into his skin like Eveen’s, like it should be, but it was still his.
“It’s beautiful,” he whispered.
“So you like it?” Remus asked as he nuzzled along Wes’s neck. Wes could only nod, his heart now lodged in his throat, making it hard to speak. “I’m glad. I had it specially made for you.” Remus placed a light kiss on the crook of Wes’s neck, right where the bite marks rested.
Wes turned in Remus’s arms and kissed him. Unable to form words, Wes put all of his love and happiness into it, hoping that the kiss would speak higher volumes than any words ever could.
The kiss went on for what felt like hours, so blissful and delighting. Warm mouths coming together. Tongues dancing as they deepened the kiss to a more intimate level. Fingers tangling in each other’s hair. Naked bodies pressed together, begging for more. Remus’s hard length rubbing against his stomach had Wes groaning into the other man’s mouth. Remus felt so amazing pressed up against him, so strong and powerful. Wes shivered as his fingers traveled over the hard muscles of Remus’s body.
