Alpha Caleb Redding has spent 20 years trying to bring his first love back into his life. When he finally devises a plan, the Council of Elders agrees to it, but they add their own stipulations. In order for the mate covenant to happen, Caleb has to agree to give up his clan and alpha status, submitting to Grayson.

Alpha Grayson Cane has watched Caleb from afar, never able to touch him or speak to him due to clan conflict. It’s been a heartache that has stabbed at him for 20 years. When a peace treaty comes in the form of a mate covenant between their two clans, Grayson is all too eager to agree, especially when he learns that Caleb must submit to him.

But when the vampire mediator sent to broker the peace agreement disappears, will their second chance at being together also vanish? And what happens when Grayson accidentally mates the vampire while trying to save his life? Will Caleb have to give up his clan, his alpha status, and his dream of being with Grayson? Or will being alpha born have its advantages?

Excerpt

Grayson and Caleb were childhood sweethearts whose romance lead to their werewolf fathers fighting to the death.  Since their fathers were alphas they both have to assume leadership of different clans.  Caleb never wanted to leave Grayson and has been fighting since that day 20 years ago to get back to Grayson.  Now he has a way.  Peace must be achieved between their two clans and Caleb will risk all to have Grayson and peace.  Joel is their vampire mediator that is kidnapped on his way to the meeting.

I loved these three men.  None of them were weak willed characters.  They were all alphas and it showed.  I thought it interesting that the way the men were all raised they didn’t have more issues with “bottoming” for each other.

This book was a little better than some of the author’s work.  More was put into this story and it shows.  The characters are more equal and the plot line, while still obvious, was better written.  The relationships between characters have a little bit of a different dimension, even though it still appears close to insta – love.  The characters more fleshed out, though they still need perfecting.  The setting isn’t a huge deal in most of the book.  It is pretty much glossed over.   Some description is given but you really don’t get a feel for it. Would have loved to feel more of the forest and Joel’s house.   If you are one that enjoyed the author’s other books this one will be that much more appealing.
