Bryan is perfectly happy with his life. He has a best friend he can rely on, a tomcat he can’t but loves anyway, and neighborhood hellhounds that he spoils outrageously. But New Rialto can be dangerous, and when shadow wraiths cross his path, his life changes forever.
As a natural-born shifter Alpha, Dusty has gathered a pack of true gargoyles, magical creatures of stone and magic. His Pack has grown stronger as the gargoyles under his protection find their chosen ones, a binding that stabilizes their magic and transforms the chosen humans into shifters.
When Bryan tries to return a lost gargoyle, Dusty realizes that life has gotten a lot more complicated. He’ll need finesse and skill to convince Bryan to accept his role in the Pack - as a gargoyle shifter and as Dusty’s mate. And it’s starting to look like the hellhounds that follow Bryan like demented lapdogs are the least of Dusty’s worries, as a lethal new threat stalks the city.
More commotion at the front of the house interrupted further commiseration, and soon enough Brenda ushered a young man into the room. He was off-balance from the weight of the small gargoyle clinging to him, but was supporting young Nix carefully as he walked. He had soft golden hair that tumbled in a curl down to his collar, and his cheeks were a distinct red against his fair skin. His bright blue eyes flitted around the room and landed on the hellhounds with a suddenly joyful expression.
“Stay,” Markus told the hounds when they started towards the man. They stopped, then lay down in a disgruntled heap.
Dusty walked over and held out his hands for the gargoyle. The man turned slightly, so that Nix could move over easily. But the young gargoyle clutched tighter to the bright-eyed young man and chirruped softly. So that answered that question. Nix had found his chosen.
“Oh, fuck,” Brenda said, from where she had moved to stand at Dusty’s side.
Fuck was right. The young man was very… fuckable. Dusty couldn’t keep his eyes off him. Not at all what he had expected. Markus’ laughing reaction to his assumption of the man’s military background now made sense. This was not a hardened soldier, but rather a soft, sweet siren of a man. He barely came up to Dusty’s shoulder, and the pink flush that swept his face was adorable.
“Nix,” Dusty barked. The gargoyle was strong and sure, but also very young. He needed to be reminded of his place in the pack. Otherwise he would take even more chances and bring danger to himself and his chosen. That could not be allowed to happen. Not with this gargoyle. Not with this chosen.
“Perhaps introductions are in order,” Markus drawled, amused. “Dusty, may I introduce you to Bryan. Bryan, I suggest you put that pepper spray back in your pocket. I’ll remind you that we are indoors, and Dusty won’t harm your new friend.” Dusty was shocked to see that Markus was right, and that Bryan had a can of pepper spray in his hand, ready to defend Nix from Dusty’s anger. Ridiculous and yet endearing.
