Rene and his men are known as D.O.A., Dragons of Anarchy. They were created centuries ago, by the great Heck, to find and destroy serialists by any means necessary. Each member was gifted with a dragon that was connected to their soul. If one died, so did the other. The men didn't shift into the dragon, but they would call out and the maharishi would join them in the fight against evil. Not wanting their secret discovered, D.O.A. lived in a town called Drago, just outside Poconos Boulevard, and they hid behind their image as a bad ass motorcycle club
Children were being murdered and Rene, otherwise known as Pit, along with his men were out to find out who was behind the copycat murders of a long time serial killer known as the Alphabet Killer. While questioning a victim's mother, Rene discovered his sentience, his mate. Now all he had to do was figure out how to tell the man he was not exactly human, and he better do it fast because his dragon heat was already kicking in.
Bren was the local town veterinarian. He figured something was off about SI Rene Telkin. If not from the leather jacket with a large D.O.A. patch on the back, then maybe because he drove a navy Blue Harley Davidson CVO Street glider instead of a tan sedan.
Bren was not the type to get mixed up with a biker club, even if the man was a cop. However, something kept drawing him to the sexy man and it seemed that nothing would break the bond they were forming. Not even when he discovered the secret all D.O.A. agents held. A large dragon for a partner.
Now Rene needs to do his best to claim his mate and also track down a serial killer, because on the last body was a note threatening the good doctor of Poconos Boulevard.

Rene looked at Bren and built up the courage to take his hand, "Not all the unsolved murders you've heard about are really unsolved. Then you have some that are still being committed and being kept quiet. Some are committed by shifters or other paranormal and because your government doesn't want people to know that there really are things out there that go bump in the night, they will never know about them."
Bren shook his head in wonder, "This is all insane. I woke up today thinking the sky was blue, only to find out it's red."
Rene looked at Bren intensely. Taking his finger he gently tucked Bren's hair behind his ear, whispering, "I know. I woke up alone and ready to catch me a killer and instead I find my very heart and soul being stolen and the man doing it has been living less than thirty minutes from me for five years."
Bren never turned away as Rene took the bull by its horns and leaned in for a kiss. It was soft and sweet, just like his mate.
Then Bren began to open up to him and Rene couldn't resist delving in deeper. Tongues touched and moans were heard by the wildlife around them. Yet any thoughts Rene might have had evaporated with this moment.
Bren slowly pulled back, softly saying, "That was nice."
"Yes it was." Rene rasped.
Bren sat up looking out towards the lake, saying, "Every part of me wants to do as Jude said." Bren turned to Rene, saying, "You know, don't over think things, just go for it." Looking back to the lake, Bren whispered, "But I can't do that, Rene. Not just because of who you are and what you do, but because it's not who I am." Looking back at Rene, his eyes were filled with concern, as he said, "But I don't want to take the chance of losing someone that might be very special to me either."
Rene tilted his head, giving Bren the most sincere look he could, "You are not going to lose me, Bren. I told you, you are my sentience. That means you are it for me. I will give you as much time as you need. Living the rest of our days together is my reward at the end of your journey."
Bren shook his head slowly, saying, "I don't get it. You're so sure we are life mates. You don't even know me. I mean, what if I'm bitchy, or you like soccer but I prefer football? I like playing cards with my friends once a week and going dancing at the club once a month to unwind from all that I've been through during that time. Do you like dancing? I could chew with my mouth open and scratch my ass in public. You know nothing about me, yet you are so sure we are meant to be together? I don't even know your favorite color, food, if you've ever been married, have you always been gay or is this a new thing for you? Just saying we are to be mates for life so screw everything else just doesn't cut it for me Rene. It makes no sense."
Rene grasped Bren's hand saying, "I prefer football, the Eagles are my team of choice. I've played poker with the guys before, and I have to tell you I'm pretty good at it. I'm not much of a dancer, but if it means I can hold you close while we sway to the music, I'm all for it. If you chew with your mouth open, I can always direct you to something else you can chew as for scratching your ass, I would be more than happy to help you with that, just say the word."
Sighing, Bren replied, "As sweet as that is, you know what I mean."
"Bren, finding our mate and feeling the pull is only biological. I am not saying that I am already in mad love with you, that is something all together different."
"I don't understand." Bren replied confused.
Rene looked out at the water for a moment, trying to think of the best way to word what he had to say. Finally turning back to Bren, he replied, "Think of the pull like a compass. It points us in the right direction, but it's up to us to find our way."
"So how do we do that?" Bren asked.
Shrugging, Rene replied, "I don't know exactly. We do as you said, get to know each other and even though I've never dated anyone before, I don't mind giving that a shot. Bren I'm willing to do anything I can to convince you that I am in this relationship for the long haul."
"Relationship? Are you asking me to be your boyfriend?" Bren asked with a shy smile.
Rene raised a brow snorting, "I am wanting you to be as close to a husband as one can be, but if you want to start off as boyfriends, I'll take it. However, I have one request first."
"What's that?" Bren asked.
Rene looked intently at Bren, "That we are exclusive. No dating others while we try and work this relationship out."
Azul gave out a low grunt that Rene took as agreement to that request. Rene wanted to add the fact that if he tried Azul might decide to eat the bastard, that is if Rene didn't kill the fucker first.
Bren drew his bottom lip in and began to nibble. The move was sexy as hell and Rene had the urge to readjust his hard as rock cock in his pants.
Nodding, Bren replied, "You have a deal."
