All Todd Warren had ever wanted to do was help people. That's why he'd become a doctor, but that hadn't included fighting weird lizards trying to kill his patients and his friends by breathing fire on them. Now he's got to deal with an intense attraction to a man who's drawn to him totally against his will.
Connor Stevens has come to the hospital in answer to an invisible summons, but soon finds the answer as to why when he sees Todd defend not only his patient, but his friends against an ancient evil determined to win it's new "toy". Now he has to train Todd to enter the world of magic he has become a part of, but it's the love and commitment for Todd himself that becomes the greatest bond of all.
I have to tell you Vinculum made me smile because the pictures I got while reading poor Connor's dilemma were absolutely delightful. Love is so confusing when we're attracted to the opposite sex, and this had to be more so. James Hogue made this an interesting, intriguing voyage of discovery for not just one man, but both men even though it was in different directions. I enjoyed journeying with Todd and Connor as they struggled with their fears, insecurities and finally reached their destination. I await more from this entertaining author.
