Vance wants answers! After the brutal murder and mutilation of his former lover, Vance is on a mission to bring the culprit to justice. He’s sure someone at The Catacombs, an exclusive all-male fetish club, holds the key to what happened that fateful night. Unknowingly, Tac, the club’s owner, helps him gain entry into the club. Now if Vance can prevent falling for the handsome man.

Tac is not only the owner of The Catacombs, but a Master Vampire who takes holding the fate of his sect in his eternal hands seriously. Secrecy is of the utmost importance, and Tac can’t afford to trust the wrong person, especially a human who isn’t a blood slave.

Nevertheless, Vance’s ability to submit attracts Tac as much as his stubbornness. After Tac introduces Vance to his secret world, will Vance accept Tac or run for the hills?

KyAnn Waters’ Dark Man is the third book in the Blood Slaves series. The series gets better with each new tale. We finally see Tac find out the true meaning of love and watch him fight it every step of the way. Vance has his own personal issues to overcome, as well as a secret to uncover. I wasn’t sure of his motives when he was first introduced, but found his cause admirable. A majority of this story takes place in The Catacombs, the BDSM club, and well as the underbelly of the club, that Tac considers home. It is a wonderful backdrop for this story. Vance has to understand how much his life will be altered with a romance involving Tac, so what better location than where Tac dwells. Ms. Waters’ has created fascinating characters for this fantastic series. She mixes action and suspense, mixed in with some luscious sex. I recommend Dark Man to those who enjoy reading gay paranormal romance stories.

Oh my hell, do you even know how much I have sweat over Tac/Theron. He is all I love in a hero and I feared I wouldn't give him a story and partner worthy of all he'd come though in Ice Man and Iron Man. He's so stubborn and he needed a man that was both willful and submissive. I thought Vance was good for him. Whew. I'm so glad you liked it. Thank you so much for continuing to read the series. Drake is next with more of the sect coming into play.

Scandalous, thank you again! You've made my week!

It was hard NOT Dark Man. I knew you had to find just the right man for Tac/Theron also. He's not the type to take a whimpy partner. He needed a strong man to stand by his side, who could relinquish control when needed. Their banter and fight for dominance made this story. I'm looking forward to reading Drake's story! You're very welcome!
