Kevin Stohler is afraid and alone most of the time since leaving his ex-lover Josh Harding.  Josh took their Master/slave relationship too far when he stepped way over the line, abusing and torturing Kevin. Kevinís physical scars have healed, but the emotional ones still linger. Connor McCann meets Kevin in a book store. Connor tries striking up a conversation with Kevin, but Kevin is too skittish and shy to respond. Connor is determined though, and with some care and kindness, he finally manages to become a part of Kevinís life. Josh isnít giving up; he wants Kevin back. Dead or alive, he plans to take him from Connor.

Reclaiming Love is a very moving story. Powerful images and emotions take the reader along on Kevinís road to healing. Kevin suffered horrible abuse at Joshís hands. It seemed heíd never be able to regain his life back. He was left afraid of his own shadow. Connor is patient, kind and understanding. He is wonderful to Kevin.  Kevin is surrounded by good, caring friends. Iím not sure he would have made it without them.  Reclaiming Love is a story about Kevin surviving the pain of his past and finding life and love again when he never thought he could. The images are sometimes disturbing, but the outcome is beautiful and erotic.
