Keeping the Peace: When a lion shifter discovers his mate in a belligerent chef, he must work hard to pre-heat their connection.
Seever Kerns has spent the last fifty plus years as his best friend’s subordinate, even though his lion is more powerful. When he meets Reese Nelson, he realizes the human is his mate and thinks Fate is rewarding his patience. Unfortunately, even though Seever can scent that Reese is attracted to him, the human resists, hiding behind a belligerent façade. Using his mate’s love for cooking to spend time together, Seever works hard to get his human to warm up to him. When trouble with rogue shifters comes their way, Seever makes a grave mistake. He assumes that Reese—who’s there visiting his cousin, Rocky, who knows about shifters and is bonded to one—is also aware of shifters and the paranormal world. Even Reese’s cousin’s influence can’t calm him. Can Seever convince Reese that they belong together, or will Reese cut his losses and flee, which would put his human into even more danger?
