A Gay Paranormal Harem Romance
What do you get when you mix a dragon, a vampire, a griffin, a mage, and a human? Sawyer Smith’s life sounds like a punchline, but the mates he’s come to love are no joke. They’re fierce and wonderful, protecting him from the outside forces trying to destroy him. Add in a reluctant hippocamp and an egotistical fae prince, and Sawyer has his hands full in more ways than one.
Sawyer is closer than ever to fulfilling the ancient prophecy of the Chosen One, but the bonds between him and his newest guardians are giving him doubts. The rules are changing, and Sawyer has to adapt quickly if he’s going to keep up, especially after he’s whisked away to the land of the fae, a place with cryptic customs. One misstep could very well lead to his death.
Navigating the waters of his newest relationship is tricky enough without the encroaching dangers. Something terrifying is heading Sawyer’s way, threatening not only his life, but everything he’s built with the mates he loves. Despite their concerns, Sawyer is ready to make sacrifices, because there’s next to nothing he wouldn’t do to keep them safe.
The arrival of Sawyer’s new mate in the last book – Saeward – meant Sawyer was one step closer to achieving his protectorate of eight. In this book, we are introduced to the Fairy Prince. He has the mark, so he must be a guardian of the Chosen One. The problem? None of the other mates likes him. And considering each new mate has been drawn to their bed, this is an issue. A visit to Fae, though, makes everything clearer.
I’m entranced by this series and gobbling up the audios as fast as I can. There’s so much more I want to say, but I don’t want to give away anything of the plot. The blurbs are written very vaguely so as not to clue in readers as to what is coming next.
And since I’m doing audio, I have to mention the amazing Michael Dean and what a great job he’s doing. On to the next.
