Owners Kaiser and William run the marine attraction with a firm, gentle hand as the de facto Alpha and Beta of their unusual family.  The absence of their father and the death of their mother early on meant that Kaiser shouldered the responsibility of raising the much younger William.  They’ve been together for hundreds of years.

More than a thousand years ago beings from another world crash landed on Earth.  The crew survived in part because of superior genetics. When they realized there would be no rescue it was decided they would quietly live alongside humans.  Unfortunately, there was a mutiny lead by crewmember Dracul whose one goal is to rule over alleveryone. Over time the Ccaptain and his loyal crew were forced to fight off Dracul’s machinations of world dominance.

Alex is kept busy with the club and his human lover Quinn.  Second-in-command Valerius opened his heart long ago to a human. When the young man and his son died in childbirth Val vowed to never fall in love again.  

Homophobic parents drove Mackenzie ‘Mackie’ Frasier from his home.  Without skills he chose to sell his body on the streets in order to survive.  Eventually he became a pole dancer at Club Lux. His need for submission is met by Val, a Dom.  Knowing exactly what Val truly is hasn’t deterred the bratty sub from wanting a permanent relationship.  When Val backs off from Mackie, the young human is hurt and can’t understand why the alien won’t commit.

Suddenly people begin dying from a new street drug called vamp.  The aliens realize Dracul is making another bid for domination. They need to find where this killer drug is being made. Val feels torn in two, he must assist his Ccaptain but at the same time he’s twisted up about Mackie, the twenty-something has his emotions in knots.  Somehow Mackie has to break through Val’s thick hide and reach his heart – to prove their relationship is worthwhile. And, stop Dracul in his tracks before more die.

Hanging in chains, brutally whipped and beaten Baron Vanern awaits death.  One day bleeds into another for the dying horse shifter. Someone touches him, speaks to him and Baron believes his torturers have returned.  

The shifter has actually been saved and brought to Chieftain Maelgwn’s gargoyle clutch in Colorado Springs.  Baron and his best friend tried to overthrow a cruel alpha. Now his friend is dead and Baron’s barely alive.  He refused to give the location of his friend’s family and almost paid the ultimate price.

It seems fate has rewarded the injured shifter in the form of his mate, an orange- shaded gargoyle training to become a healer for the clutch.  Conchlin managed to leave his birth clutch where intolerance of his small size meant he’d never have a decent chance to find his mate. Finding Baron proves all the hard work and subterfuge had been worth it. 

Sweet, easy going Conchlin has met his match in the alpha horse shifter who’s uneasy with certain aspects of their mating.  As the courtship begins further complications arise in the form of the little gargoyle’s birth Chieftain and his own father and brother.  Fighting for survival pales in comparison to fighting for one’s own mate. Baron has no intention of losing his mate, no matter their personal difficulties.  Mates are forever.
Comforting His Restless Stallion isn’t easy, nor are the many roadblocks to romance for the deserving little gargoyle Conchlin. It’s an uphill battle for Baron and Conchlin in this character driven tale where a particular mating practice proves awkward for the proud Alpha.  Conchlin’s past also catches up with him and puts their true mating in further jeopardy. There are a multitude of tense moments in Comforting His Restless Stallion yet nothing compares to the joyous feelings Baron and Conchlin share together.
