Unveiled (Book 2 of The Master Chronicles) by Jamie Craig

The second book in this series is just as good as the first book.

Another great plot, still a nice relationship, and still lots of really hot scenes. And by scenes, I'm talking BDSM, of course.

Here is the blurb for the book:
Sequel to Amber Allure Best-Seller, Master Of Obsidian......Beauty is in the eye of the master...Gideon Keel and Jesse Madding have seen dozens of gruesome crime scenes over the years, but nothing compares to the grisly discovery they make in a small apartment above a sporting goods store. The body has clearly been put on display, and clues in the apartment indicate that while the woman was dying, party guests were enjoying rich caviar and expensive champagne. The two men are mystified. They receive help from an unexpected source--a young woman they rescue from an auction at the vampire club, Sangre. Emma Coolidge is determined to save her sister from the same monsters Gideon and Jesse are hunting. While both men are utterly fascinated by her beauty, her intelligence, and her rare talent as an empath, they value her for her friendship. The three plan a sting operation to infiltrate the small group of "art connoisseurs" by sadistically turning Jesse into a living work of art, but will it be enough to save Chicago from more vicious murders in the name of beauty?

Fair warning on the violence in this story, the parties showcase the killing of humans in macabre ways as art, and the brutality of what is done is pretty rough.

But, that is a small part of the book, and it is necessary. For without something that cruel I don't think they would have gone the drastic route of putting Jesse out there as an exhibit in order to get into a party.

I enjoyed watching Gideon and Jesse grow into their relationship, and watching the relationship grow as well.

The addition of the empath was also a good thing, as it helped all parties understand what the others were feeling.
