Have you ever made a decision you thought was right at the time only to find out later it was a mistake? I have. At the time, I thought leaving my hometown to start my own pack was a good idea but lately I’ve come to regret that decision. According to pack law when an Alpha takes his place as the head of the pack he must choose an Alpha mate to lead by his side. At the urging of my parents I took a female mate. Their explanation for it seemed logical at the time. Most people are still old fashioned and may not look to a gay Alpha. While, I’m not entirely gay and have bedded women before I still prefer the company of men.READ MORE
Even though I have a wife, and a five year old son, I’m not happy. I love my son. He means the world to me and I have love for my wife as well but it isn’t the right kind of love. No matter how hard I try to make it work with her I still miss the attentions of a man. She’s not stupid. I know she can tell something’s off and I wish I had the courage to tell her the truth. To dissolve this mating so she can have a chance at real happiness. But I won’t, because I’m an old fashioned coward and without a legitimate reason, I’ll stay in this relationship for my son’s sake. He needs both parents in his life and I won’t destroy that for a one night stand. No matter how unhappy I am.
Shit has officially hit the fan. Scientists, drugs, labs. It’s giving me a headache just thinking about it. I’ve teamed up with the wolves of Asphalt Bay to try and clear up this mess. We managed to take out one lab but according to the tiger who led us to it there are more facilities. Since the guys from Asphalt Bay are leaving the recon to us I’ve sent some of my best guys out across the country and further to look for these labs so we can shut them down. So far we’ve had no luck but I have faith.
This scientist guy spares no one when it comes to his experiments. Which is why I find myself in a meeting with the local vampire coven’s second in command. Apparently, their master had an important meeting with the leader of another coven and couldn’t make it so I get to deal with his second instead. What fun. I hope these guys aren’t total assholes like the last group I had to deal with. The last coven I dealt with tried to move in on my territory and since my pack is mostly former lone wolves, women, and children; I brought us here to avoid annihilation.
I have some strong shifters in my inner circle but my pack is small and a war with vampires would’ve wiped us out. However, the pack is steadily growing and I have hopes that we’ll be larger and better able to protect ourselves in time.
Negan, my beta, walks into my office and says, “The vampire second is here.”
“Send him in.”COLLAPSE

Great story line. I love the Asphalt Bay series and this new series takes place just after the events of book 4 of Asphalt Bay. It is so great to meet new characters and to continue the story line of the last book. Well written with well developed characters. I can't wait to see what happens next.
I love this latest story from Ezra Dawn. I love that it ties into the great Asphalt Bay series. This book and all those before it in the other series are so great that even though you can read them for free, I bought all of them. If you love vampires and shifters, to say nothing of some hot man on man action, this book is for you!
