As a healer Lea is in demand, but for all the wrong reasons as far as she’s concerned. She kept from being sold into mating by keeping her head down. Taking care of her cousin while she’s pregnant, Lea gets roped into taking a job for her cousin’s alpha mate. Now she was heading off to the middle of nowhere to help another alpha male and Lea didn’t have a good feeling about this.
Yuri’s stepson was burned by dragon fire and being a new shifter bear, he needs to help from a healer desperately. He’s immediately attracted to Lea, but he expected that because any healer would draw his attention. He’s sure she’s too young for him and Yuri made a promise to Lea’s alpha to protector and not try to mate her.
Quickly Yuri is fighting his attraction and trying to protect Lea from not only from dragons but also from himself.
Lea is having a hard time keeping away from Yuri. He’s not what she wants, but is he just what she needs?
This is a part one to a three part story, but if you just want to read the first story it can stand alone. Good world building for a first book, but apparently reading further brings up a whole more info about the new world that Lea has moved into.
Yuri and Lea are good characters. They work together and keep the reader interested and rooting for them.
Interesting note: This is re-write story from the author’s pen name as a gay romance, so if you feel you read this story before, you may have. The author re-wrote and publish this book under her regular name. She’s decided to stop writing gay romance and move to more MF stories.
A Healer who can kill with a Touch. An Alpha Bear determined to save his son. Will they clash- or will they accept their bond?
Brilliant, skittish Lea spent years downplaying her power as a Healer. She doesn't want to bond to an Alpha, doesn't want to lose control of her life, or her gift. But when called upon by the Territory ruler to do something useful with her gift, Lea reluctantly travels to a strange Clan in order to heal a dangerously injured young Bear.
Alpha Yurii promises he won't try and bond the Healer to him. But resolve flees when he sees the snarky, curvy female for the first time. His Bear knows they were meant to be together- but Yurii can't break his word. And healing his son, Tanner, is more important than convincing a wary Healer that he is worth the risk to her heart and body.
Lea struggles to control her power, struggles to retain her independence in the face of unexpected temptation... should she trust that Yurii isn't a tyrant, but is a rare Alpha male willing to allow her autonomy? Is a fated matebond worth risking freedom- or her life? Because Yurii left out one important detail out when requesting her aid…
Fire breathing Dragons trying to take over the Clan territory.
