Nickerson is a former assassin. He and his lover BlaqJaq, are on the run. Nickerson was once and enforcer. He protected people from the undercity dwellers.  BlaqJaq spent his whole life in the undercity as a street muscle for hire, until he met Nickerson. After being betrayed and hunted by his superiors, BlaqJaq helped Nickerson get away. The men find themselves traveling by boat toward New New Orleans. Most revel in the festivities of carnival but if BlaqJaq and Nickerson fight the Mardis and win, they’ll get a chance at the life they’ve been searching for.

The dangerous and thrilling adventures of Nickerson and BlaqJaq from Steel Sleet continue in Blood in the Water. I love BlaqJaq’s fascination with Earth. He’s like a kid in a candy store. Nickerson has a very commanding presence and I love how he wears his heart on his sleeve when it comes to BlaqJaq.  Eric Del Carlo puts a great twist on Mardi Gras in Blood in The Water. The revelers, the mardis, and carnival itself is fun, exciting, and uninhibited. In the beginning of Blood in the Water, Nickerson and BlaqJaq are both unsure if their feelings are reciprocated then they find out how the other feels.  I love them together. They have great chemistry and a strong connection. I love that Nickerson is quite a bit older than BlaqJaq and I love that they are both smart, trained fighters. I’m a big fan of Nickerson and BlaqJaq.  I can’t get enough of their exciting exploits and their tender eroticism.  I want more!
