Evan was fond of walking the streets at night. The night offered him solitude. Evan’s favorite place to walk is The Lane, a tree-lined path where men meet for sex. Evan rarely joined the casual sexual encounters offered there. One night, Evan noticed a man leaning against a tree trunk, the stranger's eyes were cold but beautiful, their gaze piercing and unnerving. Evan had a brief moment of recognition, as if he had gazed into those beautiful eyes before. For days after their first meeting, the handsome stranger haunted Evan's every waking thought. Evan soon discovers that he and the stranger were once lovers a long, long time ago.

Love Eternal is a well written short story. The title says it all, love that transcends death. The storyline reveals the history of the two men, as well as the transformations of each of their lives. The characters are detailed. Evan lives a somewhat morose life that changes when he meets his soul mate again. The love scene is very sensual. Wayne Mansfield has created an impressive saga that I greatly enjoyed.
