Blurb: The holidays are supposed to bring festive feelings but Ray is ready to toss the eggnog and mistletoe out the door—along with Lorenzo, the handsome and tenebrous construction worker who fascinates and frustrates Ray in equal measures. But when Ray discovers a world he never knew existed and is pulled into the conflict, he finds there is more to his grandmother than meets the eye. And what she confesses to him leaves Ray reeling.
Ten years ago, Lorenzo left Brac Village to deal with something that changed his life forever. Angry, confused, and filled with bitterness, he is approached by the Ultionem to join a battle that may very well end his life. But when he discovers his mate, Lorenzo is torn between his duty and the one man who engulfs his soul with flames of deep hunger.
As the Christmas celebration draws closer, Lorenzo is left with a decision to save either his mate or walk away forever.

Review: This is part of the Brac Village series and they need to be read in order. Each story focuses on a new romancing couple. I have always loved Lynn’s books they always give me what I usually need. They give me a world that I could lose myself into. I have always loved paranormal stories but when you put it into a romance with two gorgeous men then I am pretty much sold. Most of the time they are full of humor but every once in a while you get one that has a little more serious tones to it. I had a blast reading this story and can’t wait to read it more than once.
Ray owned the coffee shop in Brac Village but was totally clueless when it came to the paranormal’s around him. He had the hots for this one very sexy man who comes in for coffee, but he can’t seem to get his tongue to work. That is until he spilt coffee on him, and then things got a lot of hotter.
Lorenzo has found his mate, but there are things holding him back. He is blood bound and can’t get out of it. He is to find hunters and kill them. If he doesn’t it then his own blood will kill him. Now he has a mate and things are just getting dicer. For it would seem Ray is more than just human, too bad no one told Ray about it.
I loved the twist and turns to this story. It caught my attention and kept it all the way to the end. This story was a little better than the others were because Ray didn’t go down so easy with Lorenzo. He didn’t just fall in love and have sex. There were difficulties and even fights about things. It just came off a bit better than the others. Which is saying something because I have loved this series and the ones that are intertwined with it.
Before reading this series you need to start with the Brac Pack series first. It does have several series that branch off but they all have the same goal in the end. You have the Brac Pack, Brac Village, Zeus’s Pack, Christians Coven, and Demon Warriors and so on. It is an amazing set of books but once you start reading them, you won’t be able to put them down.
I loved it and cannot wait to read the next one. If you love sexy men, dangerous situations and some twisted moves then this is the best series for you.
