Marc and Wolf set out to cross the fallen Roman Empire with one aim: to reach the western sea. But the journey isn’t that simple. Former soldier Marc is in his element—on the move and fighting—and dreads the end of their march. Blacksmith Wolf treads uneasily amid the turmoil of the ungoverned countryside and longs for a safe place to put hammer to anvil.
As Marc and Wolf tangle with roving outlaws and each other, they gradually discover that their combined strength—and any hope of seeing the sea—lies in their deepening bond. Every present moment and shared memory, every rough stroke and whispered demand, will bring the men closer to a destination neither can predict but that each craves, body and soul.
STRIKE is the 2nd novella (20,000 words) of INTO THE FIRE, a steamy historical romance series featuring two strong, stubborn, sexy heroes:

When the Roman Empire collapses, two boyhood rivals reunite as very different men. Marcus is a soldier with no army and few skills beyond killing. Wolfram is a blacksmith forced to defend his home with a hammer and his wits. Thrust together by cataclysm, Marc and Wolf will strike a partnership from the raw material of their shared past, shaping its angles and edges with a desire they won’t deny, to forge a love strong enough to withstand an unpredictable future.
INTO THE FIRE is the first series of the STORM’S EDGE saga.
