Erik found his mate Lucas when he was only thirteen and in desperate need of help. Erik stepped in right away to save Lucas and his sisters, and his entire life became about caring for them.
But now Lucas is a man and wants Erik to see him as more than just someone who needs protection. As the ups and downs of life teach them all the true meaning of family, Lucas makes plans to show his vampire that he’s more than ready to be claimed.
In this short story, Erik a vampire lord, finds his mate when his mate is only 13.
His mate is the only boy and has 7 sisters, and all 8 children are being abused by their father. Erik takes in Lucas and his family and becomes their “father” while waiting for Lucas to grow old enough to be his true mate.
There is virtually no angst and not much happens in this story, but it’s a sweet enough vampire/mate novella.
I think that this opens up what might be a lovely series, though this particular tale was fairly uninspiring.
