Hawaiian demolitions expert Kamaka decides to take charge of his life, and spends a long winter at Sanctuary paramilitary training camp revamping himself from soft and mellow to hard bodied and focused. When Kamaka is introduced to exquisite Navajo silversmith Zachariah Black Crow, his heart damn near stops and his libido kicks into overdrive. Kamaka is convinced the Island gods have bestowed upon him the greatest gift the earth has to offer–all Kamaka needs to do is convince the younger, over-the-top handsome man to come to his bed. Freely. Willingly.
Zach, shy and withdrawn, avoids entanglements with people he doesn’t know. A victim of a brutal attack in his college days, he focuses on his art to help deal with the nightmares. He’s never had a relationship, male or female, so his newly awakened sexual interest in Kamaka confuses him. Should a man want to submit to another man, the way he wants to submit to Kamaka? Can he be the responsive, giving lover Kamaka needs, the man Kamaka desires?
