A Gay Paranormal Harem Romance
Sawyer Smith is woefully unprepared for the dangers that come with being part of the supernatural world. As a magical null, he is human and vulnerable, even with the powerful, sexy guardians who have claimed him as their own. When a simple visit turns deadly, Sawyer’s mates take action and whisk him away to the clan of rich and powerful griffins.
As a griffin, Eduard Eastaughffe is considered supernatural royalty, but even with all his wealth and power, his duty as a guardian must come before all else. If he can convince his clan to support his newfound mates and not judge the fact they include a dragon, a vampire, a mage, and – Goddess forbid–a human, the rest of the clans may fall in line without much of a fight.
Danger lurks in close quarters and a new guardian is revealed. If Sawyer hopes to discover the ancient enemy hunting the Chosen One, he must survive the newest tests facing him. Because at the end of the day, when you’re a human among magical creatures, it’s nothing ventured…nothing gained.
I knew Sawyer had more mates to find. I wasn’t sure about him leaving their compound to head to New England so he could visit his griffin Eduard’s family. The griffin compound seemed safe, and Sawyer needed to be accepted as the chosen one, but dark forces are at play.
I don’t want to give spoilers, but the arrival of the next mate was unexpected and sweet. And, frankly, I’d never heard of such a man/creature.
As this series progresses, I’m being drawn farther and farther into this magical realm. I’m looking forward to more.
Again, loving the audio narration of Michael Dean.
