the daughters paraded under his nose, hiding his preference for a male. Scenting
Lark Trystan at a pack BBQ, he's ecstatic to discover the cute, sexy human is
his mate. He's even more pleased that Lark knows about shifters and has been
interacting with them for months. Declan quickly realizes that instead the issue
is his large size and dominant personality.
Since the pack alpha is straight, Lark can't figure out why Declan's suddenly taking an interest in him. He also doesn't understand why he's so drawn to the big man, especially considering his poor track record with relationships. Dominant men always seem to think he'd make the perfect punching bag, and Lark has the scars to prove it.
When Lark ends up in the hospital, Declan puts everything on hold, determined to take his mate home and prove that he's nothing like Lark's previous lovers. But not everyone in his pack is accepting of a gay alpha. Can Declan find a way to reconcile the two? Or will he have to choose between the pack he's devoted his life to and the man who is quickly coming to hold his heart?
by never allowing himself to fall in love. At first glance Declan comes off as the typical alpha. Dominate, larger than the normal werewolf, strong, stubborn, confidant, and sexy. As the novella unfolds though you find he is anything but the average alpha. He patient, thoughtful, understanding, and while he is dominate this never overshadows his desire for Lark to be happy.
Lark is very much a twink with eye-liner and lip gloss but you never feel that his is a stand in for a woman. He is sweet, compassionate, thoughtful, and though he isn’t physically strong, he is very much a strong person. Though his past is never fully told, you get enough tastes here and there to know why he is so skittish with bigger men. Even with the moments of insecurities he comes across as too cheerful and personal to be considered a victim.
I truly enjoyed this story! It was sweet, emotional, passionate and very well
written. The pace was balanced. While there is some sexually charged
moments as well as some sex scenes, they were more about showing the emotional
growth and connection between the characters than actual erotica.
I wish the ending had been spread out a bit more, it still ended really well and I honestly can’t wait to read the next in the series. I recommend this to all lovers of shape shifters and man on man love.
