Why I read this book: I’m enjoying this series.
Embry Ellis is a gay Omega Wolf with a stutter. Taunted for these reasons, he hides in his books, finding the stories to be his only way of escape. Even though he shies away from others, he’s always longed for a mate to love and protect him. Angus MacNair is a six-foot-seven Dragon Guardian who’s always been in the role of protecting his family. He hates bullies with a passion. At just over a thousand years old, he wishes he could find his Heart—someone to love and cherish. Tom Spencer, reprimanded for bullying Embry, won’t stop until he has his revenge against the omega wolf that caused him to lose his status. Can Angus protect his heart and fulfill his duty to the king? Will Embry accept his mountain of a fated mate? Will Tom exact the revenge he’s desperate for?
Like Angus McNair, I hate bullies. I loathed Tom and his bullying of Embry. And when it got out of hand, I was distressed. I had great empathy for the little Omega wolf. That he stuttered and preferred books? Made me love him all the more.
Angus scents his mate, but his king asks him to complete an important task, so he’s forced away before he can even speak to Embry. But he vows to return and to claim his mate. But things aren’t so simple. His mission goes sideways and then Embry is viciously attacked. Of course I wondered if Angus could somehow fix the mess. He does, and I got to meet other members of the MacNair clan whom I’ve encountered before in other books.
I loved the tenderness between the two men and, of course, I loved my happy ending. Almost made me want a dragon shifter to come slay all my foes (of which there are, admittedly, few).
Enjoyed the story, adored Aaron Ross’s narration, can’t wait for the next book.

You wouldn’t know it to look at him, but C.K. has a love for soul mates, true love, and happily ever after. Of course, he can’t let his characters get their happy ending too easily; they have to suffer first. He’s inspired by day to day life and loves transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary in his stories.
C.K. resides in small town Florida near where he grew up. He has a large, crazy family, a prissy Chihuahua, and two mischievous cats that love each other one moment and hate each other the next–there’s no in between.
