Part of the Dreamspinner Press Daily Dose “Mended” Anthology 2014
Bonded by their parents before they were conceived, Abel Nasa and Zakai “Kai” Berura adored each other since they were children. As teens, the two future Alphas took the next step in their bonding process and vowed to remain true to one another until Kai came of age. But when tragedy struck, Abel felt betrayed and ran from Kai instead of completing the mating bond.
Years pass with no contact between the two, but Abel never stops yearning for the man who was supposed to lead by his side. When Kai returns, broken and on death’s door, Abel must look past what he saw and trust his heart so they can fulfill their destiny and merge their packs.
This is like an arranged marriage, shifter style, which means it was arranged before the kids were even conceived! The idea is to bring two packs together to make them bigger and stronger. A pact is made between the two Alphas for the first newborns from each pack to be bonded together. When they are old enough to mate hey presto! Larger, stronger, more secure pack. That was the theory anyway….
When the day of the mating arrives and Kai is caught in a compromising position it all falls apart pretty quickly. Abel is left devastated, heartbroken and incomplete and remains that way for the next 10 years. He is certain he is destined to spend the rest of his life alone.
When Kai returns to Abel beaten, battered and broken both men have to face up to the past before they can look to the future. Abel learns a devastating lesson about trust and deceit which could end up breaking him and once again failing the only man he has ever loved. Those responsible for both mens emotional wounds are dealt with swiftly, the outcome bloody and deadly.
This is much shorter than the authors usual books but is packed with the normal amount of angst, love and hot men loving each other! Loved it!!
