As an older dragon, Nyve’s been waiting years for his fated mate. He just didn’t think he’d be so… young. Austin is the breath of fresh air the alpha dragon needs, but Nyve can’t help but worry about the age gap.
Austin feels stifled by his overprotective aunt, who took him in after his mother died mysteriously. As a half dragon, half wolf shifter, he’s never felt like he’s fit into either world. But he misses his mom—and meets his fated mate when getting a tattoo to remember her.
As Austin strives for independence while also learning to accept his mate, the guys at Treasured Ink learn more about a mysterious organization with a sinister motive attacking mythical shifters.
And it seems like Austin’s distant father might be involved.
It’s up to the dragons to get to the bottom of this—before someone they love gets hurt. And in the midst of it all, Nyve struggles to give his young mate the space he needs, while controlling his fear that he’ll lose the one thing he’s been waiting his whole life for.
Austin has lived a sheltered life under his aunt’s watchful eye. When he meets Nyve their time together finally gives him the courage to take steps to make his life his own. Nyve is willing to wait for Austin but has trouble with Austin’s yo-yoing actions, they are happy together in the end but no nice conclusion for their relationship.
The book left the mystery form the first book still open ended so presumably once we get to the last guy in the shop we may find out everything. Much more was found out about the muggings and the group they are connected to and it connects back to Austin’s father. I was confused as his aunt’s reactions but hope that will come out in a later book. If I had known this was a serial type storyline I’m not sure I would have gotten started but I’ll probably continue as I want to know what will happen in the end.
The cover art is nice and follows the pattern for the series.
