- Savage Heart
Warning: Cree and Maggie had wanted this book to be a stand apart from Eternal Flames and Eternal Flames Maddox. However, with this being the first book and some connections in the other series it seems to of created some confusion to some as to who those men are and what circumstance brought he and his mate together. Therefore, a prologue was added to this book to help the readers understand the connections to other characters as well as how Savage met the man he would call his fated one. A reader should now not have to read EF or EF Maddox to understand what is happening, however, it might help with some understanding as to backgrounds on some of the other characters if you are interested. Thank you and know we do listen to input from our readers.
Russell Savage has been around since the dawn of time. He is the original shifter and has spent most of his life fighting in one war or another as well as hoping that one day he would be blessed with a mate. Little did he expect to find him, clinging to life, as the last victim of a serial rapist and killer in Crystal, Colorado. Going on pure instinct and need, Savage whisks his mate to the place he has called home for thousands of years.
Gill wakes in a strange place, with a gorgeous stranger watching over him, explaining that he is the ultimate of shifters and Gill is his mate. All the promises Savage makes about love, safety and acceptance is something out of the romance novels Gill loves to write. However, how can he believe Savage when his own parents never offered any of the same. Little did Gill know how easy that would be but underestimating how far his family would go to get him back threatens the life Gill and Savage are trying to build.
How will Gill and Savage unravel the evil Gill’s father has started so that Gill can finally find love, peace, and paradise, in a place they call…Savage Island.

Russell moved closer then slid an arm under Gill’s shoulders. “Here, let me help you.”
With Russell’s help, Gill was sat up and leaned against the headboard. The pain in his back was still there but not so bad. Once he was comfortable, Russell released him and stepped away. Gill could swear he heard a quick intake of breath as Russell touched him and then felt the reluctance when Russell released him, but he knew he must be mistaken. There was no way, even though the man seemed to be flirting with him, that anyone who looked like Russell Savage could be interested in a dweeb like him.
“There, is that better?”
“Yes, thank you,” Gill replied shyly.
Russell gave him a beautiful smile full of sparkling white teeth. “Hey now, none of that. You don’t need to be shy with me.”READ MORE
Gill cleared his throat. “Okay then if I am on some island, then my first question is how long have I been asleep? Because as far as I know the last place I was, was in Colorado and there are no islands there, which means we traveled some distance and I don’t remember a damn thing. So how long have I been out and what caused me to be out?”
The smile fell from Russell’s lips and his eyes filled with anger, but somehow Gill knew it wasn’t at him, but Russell’s reaction was beginning to worry him. “I will answer all of your questions and I promise to always be honest with you, but first let me ask you this. What do you remember?”
Russel watched Gill’s face closely trying to concentrate on the conversation and not the scent of fresh chocolate mint candy ready to be tasted. Just touching Gill and being so close, when he helped the man sit up had about made him forget his mate’s injuries and give Gill what his eyes and lust filled scent had been asking for.
“Honestly it is all broken up. I think I have flashes, but honestly Russ, I don’t think my mind wants to remember,” Gill softly replied.
Savage pulled up his high wing back chair close to his fated one, sat, then gently placing his hand on top of Gill’s. “It’s okay, Gill. Sometimes our minds know when our body needs healing and when you’re ready it will bring the memories back to you. I give you my word, as your mate, that I will do everything in my power to help you through that when the time comes.”
“Maybe it would be best if you just told me,” Gill suggested.
Shaking his head, Savage replied, “I don’t think that’s wise. However, I can tell you this, you were badly injured. You had three broken ribs, internal bleeding, a severe concussion, and well…a broken back. I didn’t think you would live until I brought you home. Grey healed you as best he could, he mended your ribs, fixed your spleen and was able to bring the swelling in your brain down. He has intermittently tried to heal your spine and you won’t have to wear a back brace because of his treatments, but the rest is up to you.”
Gill continued to stare at Savage, rapidly blinking. “Are you saying I won’t be able to walk?”COLLAPSE
This ties in with the stories of Maddox and Crystal. This is Savage story and we get to see little more of the shifter that like to stay in the background and why. We are taking on a journey on a island that is hiding some hidden treasure. Cant wait to see what comes next on Savage Island when others come there to train maybe some hidden will find their mates. Highly recommend this book.
