"5 Lips!...Recommended Read!...I developed a deep appreciation of Jesse and Gideon in Master Of Obsidian but Unveiled takes things to a much deeper level than I'd ever imagined. The introduction of Emma is brilliant and the interesting and amazing dynamics that she adds to their relationship and therefore the story as a whole, makes it complete. The chemistry between Jesse and Gideon is very intense and sustained in a manner which I've never experienced before. Jamie Craig has captured the true essence of their deep and abiding passion and love for each other and how it only continues to grow and permeate every aspect of their actual existence."--Kerin, Two Lips Reviews
"4 Angels!...I love the connection between Gideon and Jesse. Their interactions are exactly what I want from a story like this...Jamie Craig did an excellent job of keeping the relationship between Jesse and Gideon as intense and exciting as it was in Master Of Obsidian."--Ashley, Fallen Angel Reviews
"...A truly suspenseful read with much to recommend it. The book picks up where Master Of Obsidian left off and further develops the relationship between Jesse and Gideon, making this a worthy sequel. Jesse is really coming into his own in this book, becoming more confident in Gideon’s love and in his own competence. Gideon, despite being capable of violence when necessary, can also be very sweet and tender toward Jesse..Newcomer Emma’s abilities have a very interesting effect on the men and the storyline. Her mix of toughness and vulnerability made her a sympathetic character. The storyline itself is taut and suspenseful. The games Jesse and Gideon must play, and the coldly evil people they must deal with, to catch the killers are chilling. Jamie Craig did a very good job of creating an atmosphere populated with rich people and vampires who play by a different set of rules and have no empathy or morality at all. If you like vampires, mysteries, and dark storylines, pick up Unveiled."--Cassie, Joyfully Reviewed
"4.5 Nymphs!...The story is wonderfully written and the characters make the pages sizzle. Not to mention the action and sexual lust that Gideon and Jesse share. If you enjoy murder, mystery, and hot vampires you don’t want to miss Unveiled."--Scandalous Minx, Literary Nymphs Reviews
"5 Hearts!...The writing duo know as Jamie Craig gives us an excellent second novel in the series. I was captivated by Jesse and Gideon...I really like the writing style in this book. Humor, horror, love, eroticism and characters that seem real blend through the pages. There's plenty of BDSM for fans but not too much for those who are squeamish...The interactions are great and the dialogue is often tongue in cheek and fun. This is great storytelling by this very talented partnership known as Jamie Craig."--Dee Dailey, The Romance Studio
"4.5 Stars!...Jamie Craig (the writing team of Pepper Espinoza and Vivien Dean) have created an exotic world against the backdrop of everyday Chicago that will rock your senses. This series is not for the faint of heart, as it is graphically violent and explosively sexual. However, the contrast between those elements and the clearly intense, deep love between Jesse and Gideon is beyond erotic. I recommend it."--Carole, Rainbow Reviews
...Emma’s gaze strayed to the doorway. How far along would they be? How was Gideon going to pose Jesse? Would he be standing? Lying down? On his stomach or on his back? She knew the palette that would be used and felt a moment of sympathy for Jess that she’d suggested using the darker colors first. From what he’d shown her, colored wax hurt more than the white. He would be feeling that long after their practice session was over.
Though she knew what they’d agreed upon, Emma headed for the stairs on feet with their own agenda. She wasn’t going to interrupt, like she had promised. But if the door was open, maybe she could get a quick peek to see what Gideon was doing, how it was turning out. Just a little something to satisfy the curiosity that was burning inside her.
The knob turned easily in her hands, and she very quietly pushed the door open an inch to peek through the crack. Gideon was standing over Jesse with his back to her, and Jesse was resting on his forearms and knees, face down, in a piece of equipment similar to the one she had been held in at Sangre. He seemed to be entirely immobile, his wrists and ankles locked in bars, a thick collar holding his head in place. He was already covered in blue wax, and Gideon was dribbling the red over his shoulders. She could easily sense Jesse’s arousal, but she even caught threads of what must have been Gideon’s excitement.
“You know, you’re dripping even more than this candle.” The low rumble of Gideon’s voice was directed at Jesse, but Emma felt every word as if she was the one in the stockade and each velvet promise was being laid across her skin. “What are we going to do about that?”
Jesse moaned softly. “I don’t know, but I hope we do something about it soon.”
Gideon shifted, and a sudden hiss from Jess filled the room. “Let it all out now, boy,” he murmured. “Because when I have you at that party, I don’t want you making a single sound. You’re going to turn them on enough as it is, but do that, and they’ll be ready to eat you alive.” He bent over, putting his mouth next to Jesse’s ear. “And nobody does that but me.”
Jesse whimpered, and Emma was hit by another wave of arousal. She couldn’t see his cock from her position, but she could believe he was dripping like a candle. “I won’t make a sound,” he promised, his words rushed. Gideon trailed the candle down his spine, leaving a long, thin line of wax to cool against Jesse’s sensitive skin. A shudder wracked his frame. “Even if you do that.”
She knew she should go back to the apartment. Every fiber and every instinct inside Emma was telling her this was far too intimate for her to be witnessing, that she’d sated her curiosity about what would happen and now was the time to retreat.
Her feet refused to move. Her muscles denied her any freedom at all. All she was capable of was standing there, suffused with the desire permeating the room. She didn’t even want to blink for fear of missing something.
Gideon shifted his attention to Jesse’s upper-thighs, and the red wax reflected the overhead light. It reminded her of blood. It must have reminded Gideon of blood as well, because he seemed utterly fascinated by the patterns he was creating with each casual flick of his wrist. They were silent except for Jesse’s harsh breathing, until he howled without warning.
“Oh, fuck, Gideon.”
The air was so thick that she couldn’t breathe, and she inched forward, pressing her breasts to the door jamb. It put pressure on her taut nipples at the same time, and she moved in small fractions to create suddenly needed friction.
“You know I’m going to decorate your balls at the party, too,” Gideon said. “It’s far too pretty for me not to.” His head ducked all of a sudden, giving a clear view of Jesse’s back, and though she couldn’t see exactly what Gideon was doing, the movement of his head from the small of Jesse’s back to between his thighs gave it away. All she didn’t know was whether or not he was using his tongue or teeth to blaze the path across Jesse’s ass to his hanging sac.
“Then I hope they won’t be able to hear me through the mask,” Jesse said between gasps. “Because that will definitely make me scream.”
“Maybe I should gag you...”
