Due for Release Any Day Now
Seven years ago, Justice Fayhee disappears without a trace. Now, on Christmas Eve, Tristan stumbles across his old lover lying in a snowy alley. Why is Justice back and what happened to him? The chance meeting launches Tristan headlong into a frightening snowstorm where he’s confronted with the esoteric gift of immortality.
It soon becomes clear to Tristan that he must leave to protect Justice from the gang members pursuing him. He goes in search of his father’s ex-bookie, Rocky, to ask for help and discovers too late that Rocky is the head of Pittsburgh’s Brotherhood of Blood. A trap is set for Justice that also captures Tristan and his ailing mother. When a young woman named Morgan, believed to be one of Rocky’s “ankle biters”, is tossed from his moving limousine, she becomes an inside source on fighting the Brotherhood, but can she be trusted, or is she a mole who wants the reward of eternal life?
Things grow even more difficult when Justice discovers Tristan is bi-sexual. He begins changing drastically, simultaneously claiming Tristan as his rightful property and pushing him away. Morgan suspects he’s in the grip of blood dust, a highly addictive substance for the undead, but despite Tristan’s attempts to reconcile, Justice grows steadily more dangerous. As the New Year approaches, Tristan realizes he’s falling for Morgan, but how can he protect her from Justice and the entire Brotherhood network? Where can he turn for help when the Brotherhood is everywhere? Salvation springs from unexpected sources, leaving Tristan’s heart, as well as his soul, battered. Perhaps the New Year will bring Tristan and Morgan not only love, but hope for the future.
