Excerpt:

“It’s about time you got here. I was too hungry to keep waiting and they were some of the best taco’s I’ve ever eaten.” Taco said with a laugh.
“You and your love of tacos. Are you gaining weight, maharishi mine?” Cobra asked with a small smile.
“Fuck you, ass hole.” Taco grumbled.
Raising a brow, Cobra asked, “I thought you didn’t like Terminator? Well I can honestly say you do a pretty good Schwarzenegger impression.”
Cobra turned to look at Calvin, “Hello, Calvin. I got your notes. Want to tell me how you knew I would be taking my bike today?”
Calvin’s eyes rounded, his mouth opening and closing like a fish. Taco quickly said, “I’m the one that put the note on your bike. I needed to make sure you saw it before you left.”
Calvin looked at Taco in confusion, however, before he could say anything, Cobra turned to his maharishi, asking, “How long have you known?”
Shrugging, Taco replied,

I suspected almost a year now. I wasn’t completely certain. I didn’t understand why you had never gone into dragon heat nor had I, but the pull has been getting stronger for the past two months.”
“And you said nothing? How could you keep something like that from me, Taco? Did you not think I would want him?” Cobra asked angrily.
The tone of Cobra voice going so cold and harsh brought Calvin out of his shock at being so close to Cobra for the first time since coming to Drago, “Please don’t yell at him. Taco is one of my closest friends and he wouldn’t purposefully upset you, Cobra. He talks so highly of you and…well I don’t want something I did to cause a rift with you and your maharishi.”
Taco smiled down at Calvin, saying, “It’s alright, Calvin. We will explain everything to you in a moment.” Turning back to Cobra, Taco asked, “When was I supposed to tell you, Cobra? You’ve had us on one mission after another for years. When we are home, you close yourself off in the garage to mess with your bike or stay in your rooms reading. You refuse to interact with anyone unless Pit forces you like he did for the Forth of July Celebration and even then you were in and out as much as possible so Pit wouldn’t know you weren’t talking to anyone. Then with everything going on with Solo and his mates…I just had to be sure before I came to you. I didn’t want his feelings hurt if I was wrong.”
“I understand that, Taco, but you should have told me. We might have been on missions, but we do have down time even then. You should have said something.” Cobra stated sounding just as angry.
“And what would you have done, Cobra. Calvin is a kind, loving, and sweet man. You look at the people here as if they are beneath you. Why? Because they made mistakes. Let he who has not sinned cast the last stone. Isn’t that what was said?” Taco argued back.
Cobra’s lips tightened and his brows drew together, “I treat them that way because most of them have done more then make a mistake. Many of them turned a blinds eye to what others were doing that was causing hurt and pain to innocent people, and how can I trust them? They lie and would have continued to turn the other way had they not been caught to begin with.”
“But Calvin isn’t like that. He’s here because bad people are trying to hurt him because of what he saw and did report.” Taco stated with pride.
Rolling his eyes, Cobra asked, “How the hell do you know that? Because he told you? For all you know Calvin could be a really good liar.”
“You two do know I’m standing right here, right?” Calvin asked getting a bit perturbed. No one like to be talked about as if they weren’t there.
Taco snorted ignoring Calvin’s words, “He is not like that. I’ve had months to get to know him and I agree I don’t know everything, but I do know that he’s a good man. Worthy of any DOA member. We just happen to be the lucky ones to get him.”
Hearing the distrust coming from Cobra, Calvin felt any hope that he might have a chance with the man dwindle away. The very fact that Cobra wouldn’t even talk to him Calvin felt his heart twist and tears building. He had made a huge mistake. He had allowed himself to wish for something he could never have.
Turning, Calvin started to walk away, swiping at the tears that had begun to fall. Gods he was such an idiot. Gordy and Cameron were wrong. At least when he watched Cobra from afar Calvin could dream…believe…that one day he and Cobra could be together. Now he didn’t even have that.
“Where do you think you’re going?” Cobra asked grabbing Calvin’s shoulder.
Not bothering to turn around, Calvin did his best to speak past the lump in his throat. “Home. I’m sorry I sent you the note. I…I won’t bother you again.”
“Calvin, why did you send me all those letters?” Cobra asked.
Calvin shrugged but didn’t answer, not really listening to Cobra’s words. All he wanted to do was go home, crawl in bed and pretend like this day never happened.
Cobra tried to turn Calvin around, but he refused to budge. It was embarrassing enough that he had enlightened Cobra to his true feelings for the man and knowing what Cobra thought of him and the people of Drago hurt. It wasn’t his fault that his father was an evil ass hole. Calvin had done everything to help the cops stop his dad from hurting anymore people. He should have thought about the fact that his dad would have so many of them working for him. If not for Clem Calvin knew he would be dead by now. Hell, his dad had already tried killing him three times before Clem finally brought him to Drago.
“Calvin, look at me.” Cobra ordered.
Calvin shook his head, whispering, “I’m just gonna go. We can forget this ever happened.”
“No we can’t Calvin.” Taco said.
Looking up he saw Taco standing in front of him giving Calvin an understanding smile. “What do you mean? I haven’t done anything to anyone. I’ll just go back to…wait!” Fear like Calvin hadn’t felt in twenty six years consumed him, “Are…are you say…saying I have to le…leave Drago?”
“No!” Both Taco and Cobra shouted at the same time.
Calvin felt his fear receding a little, but was still confused. “Then why can’t I just go home and we pretend this didn’t happen?”
Cobra shocked the hell out of Calvin when he gripped Calvin’s shoulders and turned him around to face him. “Because, Calvin. You’re our sentience.”

What a great story. It did leave a bit of a cliff hanger as now I want to see Sparkys story! As well as others. This is the first book I have read in the series and I hope more will come.
Lots of great action , emotions and good humored ribbing from "family-like" friends.
Very well written and addictive. A "must sit and read all the way through" type of story.


About the Author

I was born in Fort Knox, Kentucky. I’m a military brat that travelled a bit overseas and throughout many parts of the United States. I finally settled in Las Cruces, New Mexico, where I eventually got married and then divorced. I was blessed with two fantastic sons. As they grew up and became young men chasing their dreams. I felt that maybe now was the time for me to do the same. That’s when I started writing. Never in a million years did I expect to meet the most wonderful man in the world, move to Quebec, Canada, and get married. However, that is exactly what happened. JP has introduced me to things like; canoeing, snowmobiling, four wheeling, and has taken me to some of the most beautiful locations. Ones that I had only ever seen on a computer or read about in books. I may miss my mountains and my boys, but have discovered that when you work towards your dreams, the future can be one filled with happiness and love. My boys are only a plane ride away, and Skype is a glorious thing. So I say, on to my next adventure…don’t be shocked to find it in one of my books.
