Guy Keaton doesn’t want a hookup or a soulmate or anything in between. When he lost his wife to cancer, he knew he’d be alone for the rest of his life. He has a grown son, and his woodshop, and in a world where those born with powerful gifts are few and far between, that’s all that really matters.
Theo Fraser’s empathic gift is rare and strong. He isn’t looking for love, but when he meets Guy, everything changes, because he knows that when you find your soulmate, you hold on tight and don’t let go. The only problem is that Guy thinks he’s straight, and Theo doesn’t know if he can convince a man already set in his ways to change his mind.
Will Guy be able to give up his grief and accept Theo’s love? And what happens when a terrible betrayal forces them to fight to keep each other alive?
I was so nervous about this! I’m NOT a fan of pining and this practically SCREAMED pining. (You’ll see later why that is a terrible pun….)
In any case, Guy is still mourning his wife. She was his mate, but not his fated mate. When – in this unique world Erin Leaf has drawn for us – a person of magic meets their fated mate – powerful things are put into motion.
Though he wants to deny it – he can’t – Theo is Guy’s fated mate and together they not only have amazing chemistry and love but they also create some amazing magic together.
I found the world building to be entrancing and the romance really sweet – despite some of the weirdness surrounding the ex-wife and their relationship….
