Medium-High Heat: 3.5
While this work does not contain depictions of explicit sex scenes, it does feature frank discussions about sex, consent, kink, and implied sexual relations/fade to black in Chapter 28. Hence the elevated heat rating.
Topics the characters discuss include elements of BDSM, dom/sub dynamics, bondage, subspace, consensual humiliation, playful punishments, fang-play (no blood), gratuitous amounts of praise/affirmation, and a generous walloping of mutual pining.
If any of the above is not your cup of tea, you can skip the latter half of Chapter 28 without fear that you’re not missing any plot or character development 🙂
If you have any specific squicks or triggers you are worried about that you don’t see listed, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Your comfort is important 🙂
The book also explores themes of ableism, bigotry, mental health, war, injury, and recovery.

In a world of dwindling hope, love has never mattered more…
Injured in a seemingly pointless war, Captain Nathan J. Northland returns home to Lorehaven to an uncertain future. He doesn’t know what to expect, but it certainly wasn’t being posted on an island full of vampires. An island whose local vampire dandy lord causes Nathan to feel strange things he’d never felt before.
Feelings about fangs.
When Viscount Vlad Blutstein agreed to hire Nathan as Captain of the Eyrie Guard, he hadn’t been sure what to expect either. It certainly hadn’t been to fall in love with a disabled werewolf. A werewolf who treats him with respect. Kindness. More kindness than Vlad feels he deserves. Vlad has fallen and fallen hard, and that’s the problem.
There’s a storm coming.
Torn by their allegiances—to family, to duty, and the age-old enmity between vampires and werewolves—Vlad and Nathan find themselves in a difficult situation: to love where the heart wants or to follow where expectation demands. The situation is complicated further when a mysterious and beguiling figure known only as Lady Ursula crashes into their lives, bringing with her dark omens of death, doom, and destruction in her wake. One thing is for certain, nothing will ever be the same.
— This is a fluffier version of Hunger Pangs: True Love Bites as requested by several of my readers. The majority of the story is the same with only a few scenes changed to accommodate those readers.
