Erotic Romance, LGBTQ, Vamps & Shifters Romance
A sensitive wolf shifter and a vicious vampire challenge history, greed, and the very fabric of their beings in order to stay together until forever comes.
Plagued by pain and weakness all his life, Ethan Abbatt is a wolf shifter who can't shift. Hoping to find an honorable death by joining his pack mates in a vampire attack, Ethan instead learns two things: draining his blood releases his pain and his wolf, and he has a true mate—a vampire named Miguel.
Over four centuries old, strong, powerful, and vicious, Miguel Rodriguez walks through life as a shadow, without happiness or affection. When a young shifter tells Miguel they're true mates, destined to be together, Miguel sends him away. But Ethan is persistent and being with him comes so naturally that Miguel can't resist for long. Their challenge is staying alive so they can be together until forever comes.

Can a vampire and a shifter, supposedly mortal enemies, become each other's soul mate and savior?
Ethan Abbatt is a wolf shifter and the weakest link in his pack. He is unable to shift, and fears his days are numbered. Discovering that his true mate is a vampire is earth shattering, but Ethan is determined to make the best of it.
Miguel Rodriguez is one of the strongest vampires around and has no idea why a shifter, who originally tried to attack the vampires, is now so determined to stay by his side. As they work through developing their own relationship, they also have to deal with vampire and pack bias.
Ethan is such a lovely character. He's a bit insecure after spending his life unable to shift, making him an outcast in his pack. However, he had the unconditional love of his family, especially his sister, allowing him to value himself and making him determined to hold unto his mate after finding him.
Miguel is extremely old, powerful, and smart. He is on the verge of going feral since he can't seem to feed enough to satisfy his hunger. Since a shifter's blood is poisonous to a vampire, Miguel is shocked that he can not only feed from Ethan, but actually feels better afterwards.
Once Ethan and Miguel accept their mating, the amazing steamy sex scenes happen fast and frequently. They also spend a lot of time talking, helping the pack, and dealing with the other vampires who aren't fans of shifters.
It was absolutely adorable how jealous and protective each of these men were of the other. The epilogue was perfect, answering some questions from the first story and giving us a solid feeling of forever for Ethan and Miguel.
You can't go wrong with this riveting page turner with true love, a suspenseful plot, wonderful dialogue, vampires, shifters, and steamy hot sex. I couldn't put it down, and I'm anxiously awaiting the next book in the series!
