An honorable, kind new leader and his mate are now in charge and willing to add any mistreated or displaced shifters to the pack. Life is so much better for the dingo brothers. Lucius is even studying for his GED and hoping to use his love and knowledge of plants to help get a degree in botany. Single and free, without sexual servitude. Life is good.
Recently Master Jaymes’ coven rescued more than a dozen Angus shifters from deplorable conditions at the hands of their own Alpha and his men. Vampire Gypsum Vereen is responsible for taking some of the Angus shifters to their new home.
After the long car ride Gypsum accepts Alpha Dorian’s hospitality and shares a meal with the pack. He has an unexpected bonus dessert when he catches the scent of his beloved, his very own mate. What Gypsum doesn’t anticipate is for his beloved to flee the room. As Alpha Dorian explains the horrors Lucius was subjected to the vampire realizes he’s got his work cut out for him – and then some.
