The blacksmith who hid his desire. The soldier who never knew…until now.
When Rome falls, Marc treks home across the desolation to find everything changed, including his boyhood friend Wolf.
Gone is the big, clumsy lad. In his place at the forge stands a man as skilled as he is shy.
And surely not interested in feeding the spark he’s just lit in Marc’s belly.
One that feels unnervingly like hope.
When Marcus left to fight, Wolf had a secret. One that burned so hot he shoved it down deep.
Now Marc’s back, hardened by war and survival into something only fire could mend.
Wolf knows fire. And every day in Marc’s presence tempts him to use it.
But with the world in chaos, can he risk incinerating them both?
