Christian takes to heart everything he learns from Logan’s father. As he and Logan go forward in their DD relationship, he finds that he’s willing to not just take on the mantle of head of house, but to embrace it. With Logan graduating from college, Christian takes the next logical step and asks his boyfriend to move in.
Even with the stress of student teaching and trying to figure out what to do after graduation, Logan leaps at the chance to live with the man he loves. The pressure of graduation begins to get to him and the only thing keeping him grounded is the amazing man at his side.
Those closest to them make huge changes in their own lives and when an unexpected job offer lands in Logan’s lap, they have to make a life-altering decision. No matter which way they go, they need to give something up. Play it safe and stay home or accept the job and move away from their families? When it comes to decision time, there is one thing they are not willing to part with. That one thing makes all the difference in the world.
They’ve been safe for decades, but now the drakyl of Drakyl Ranch must fight for their lives and the lives of their human relatives against the vilest creatures to inhabit the earth: Vampyr.
Jeffrey’s been a drakyl for 2 months. He loves being drakyl, but his overwhelming inability to stay awake during the day frustrates him. All he wants to do is be of assistance to his cousins. Instead, he spends his nights running perimeter checks and his days sleeping.
Cor has been a drakyl for over a century. He’s spent his time protecting his tribe from others of his kind. He expects to do that for the rest of his existence. Only now there’s someone who is a constant pull toward Drakyl Ranch. He never believed in the joined. He does now.
When Cor and Jeffrey come together, their sworn enemy pulls a stunt that threatens them all. While they have hints from the research generations of drakyl left them, they can’t understand the language it was written in. Now Cor must find out what it means before the vampyr strike again.
Even though Drakyl Ranch now has four full drakyl, it might not be enough to fight off the new horror the vampyr unleash.
For Christian Darringer, life isn’t worth living. Just back from the Middle East—scarred and with permanent damage to one leg—he doesn’t think anyone will want him for anything. He didn’t plan on meeting someone he can’t stop thinking about. Pulled toward the startling younger man, he begins to question a lot of things—especially his sexuality. Not one to hide from a challenge, he plunges ahead only to find himself more than just attracted to Logan.
Logan Mannette has almost everything he ever wanted: loving parents, happiness, friends, and security. The only thing missing is the love of his life, a love just like his parents have. When he meets Christian at a party, everything changes. Instantly attracted, he does his best to help the sad man and quickly finds himself feeling more than he has ever felt before. Raised in a domestic discipline household, he holds that ideal as what he wants. His interest in spanking has become a fetish and when Christian admits he wants to be spanked, Logan believes he might have found the perfect man.
Just as everything begins for them, Christian’s past intercedes and one of his brothers makes waves about him dating a man. When it lands Christian in the hospital, he is forced to reevaluate their budding romance. Being with Logan might feel as natural as breathing, but if it costs Christian everything he cares about, is this new relationship worth it?
