Elder Bodb has walked the earth for over a thousand years. All that time, he’s waited patiently for Fate to bring him his mate. When he travels to the Falias clutch to share sentencing information on one of their former members, he catches just the faintest whiff of something…something intoxicating. His mate is finally near. After discovering the smell originated from the brother of a man mated to a gargoyle, Bodb learns that Nicholas Lindson doesn’t know about the paranormal world. To make matters worse, Nicholas is engaged to some socialite in Texas, and the wedding is only a few weeks away. Bodb discovers that’s not the worst thing, though. Nicholas is the heir to a Texas cattle baron empire, and his father is very involved in his life—overly so. Can Elder Bodb figure out how to not only share that paranormals exist and woo Nicholas, but to extricate his human out from under the father’s domineering hand?
Elder Bodb is a gargoyle who is over eleven hundred years old. Nicholas is the brother of Mitch, who is mated to Kardamon (APL #23). No need to read Mitch’s story first.
Nicholas is engaged to be married to Sandra when he learns not only about paranormal creatures, but he is also chosen by fate herself to be mated to Bodb.
One major problem, Nicholas is a man of his word and calling off the wedding was not an option.
“My mate is a man of deep honor.” – Bodb
Then there is Nicholas and Mitch’s father Baltus. What a jerk!!!
“His father cared for one thing, and pleasure wasn’t it. It’s always about the bottom line. Money.” – Nicholas
I love the instant connection they have. Both are open to listening and figuring out a way for Nicholas to keep his promise and still be with his mate. Bodb may not find the situation ideal, but he will have his mate however he can.
“Please try to understand that you are my mate. A gift from the gods. And I am willing to do whatever is necessary to make you happy.” -Bodb
I hope there is more explaining at some point about “Uncle Albert”.
Charlie Richards always writes quick, hot and entertaining reads. As a huge gargoyle fan, I’m always excited when a new story comes out.
