[Siren Publishing: The Lynn Hagen ManLove Collection: Erotic Alternative Paranormal Romance, M/M, vampires, shape-shifters, HEA] Avery Collins wants a docile, chivalrous mate, but gets Navarez Espelimbergo instead. As a vampire, Rez is intimidating enough, but whenever the man is near, Avery feels as if he’s being branded by the tall, dark, and handsome man.
Navarez was kidnapped and tortured as a teenager.
He hasn’t been able to get past the nightmares that still haunt him. He lives with chaos as a constant companion, that is, until he meets Avery, a cat shifter who quiets the demons inside of him and shines light into Rez’s dark world. When Avery mysteriously disappears, it’s up to Rez to find his mate.
He tracks down his mate who is in the clutches of the same man who tortured him all those years ago. Worse, Avery is dying and Jaden shows up to claim his soul, but Rez isn’t giving his mate up so easily, not when Avery is carrying his child.
