Book Blurb

Oliver Clarence never expected to be picked up by Templars after being kicked out of his pack for being gay. He's an omega werewolf, and they usually hunt dragons. When he finds a dragon shifter, however, a creature so beautiful and mesmerizing, he can't leave him behind when he finds a way to escape.

Fraser Hamilton cannot believe it when he sees an omega werewolf fighting his way to freedom. Aren't omega wolves supposed to be weak? Not Oliver. The wolf is not only incredibly young, but also brave, and Fraser recognizes his mate, even if Oliver's youth prevents him from seeing the obvious. He will do whatever he can to protect the wolf and bring him back to his clan, where they can both be safe from hunters and Templars, but until then, Fraser must claim the man as his own. His body can't wait any longer, and he can clearly see the way Oliver looks at him.

 

Book Review

Book three of the series opens with a bang. Fraser, Grant’s twin brother who saved High Dragon Aris’s life by taking a bullet only to be taken captive by the evil Templars and to go missing at the end of book one, is lucky to be alive. His mate, Oliver, is a new character; an omega wolf kicked out by his pack for being gay and picked up by the Templars for some nefarious purpose. Both of them together are hot enough for each other to set the pages aflame, and in the middle of trying to get away from the Templars, that doesn’t make their life easier. I was happy to see some of the characters from earlier books return, and with some startling revelations to boot! I predict major excitement coming up in the next few installments – not that this is difficult with everything that’s been going on – and I’m only three books in!

Oliver is supposed to be an omega werewolf, but he certainly had me fooled! He is feisty, stands up for himself as much as possible with the Templars’ brutality, and manages to fight for Fraser’s freedom as well as his own while he is at it. He is very young and naïve in many ways, hence the Templars manage to lure him in with the promise of food, but he knows what he wants: and Fraser becomes top of his list as soon as he sees him chained in a cage. It takes Oliver a while to figure out that the attraction he feels is due to the fact they are mates, but once he does, there is no stopping him. He has a keen sense of right and wrong, and some of what he finds in the dragons’ home upsets him. Being Oliver, he sets out to fix it, even against the resistance of some of the dragons.

Fraser is biding his time, playing the subdued dragon to lure his guards into giving him just enough freedom to make his escape. It’s the only way he figures he will ever manage to free himself, but he hates every minute. Then Oliver walks into the camp and Fraser is not just immediately attracted, but determined to protect the wolf. Not that Oliver wants protection, and that leads to a few problems, but Fraser is determined not to let that stop him. Oliver is his!

If you liked the books in this series so far, if you enjoy watching a much older man get used to the fact that his much younger partner is a lot more self-secure and able to take care of himself than he expected, and if you’re looking for a read that is as tension-filled as it is hot and cute, then you will probably like this novella. I really enjoyed it and look forward to book four!
