Blurb: Destiny brought them together even before they were born.
Raiden Shou, a fierce and loving Tah’Narian warrior, has everything he ever wanted. A loving mate, a highly sought-after position as Chief Helmsman of the Unity, and now the possibility of a young in the near future. But destiny never promised life would be easy.
A chance encounter with the Ne Reyn goes horribly wrong, an enemy from the past makes a reappearance, and egos flare out of control. A rejection turns lethal during a trip to Quai to collect mates for the Tah’Narian Volunteer Program. Jealousies threaten to destroy Raiden’s perfect life.
A plot is hatched, and Raiden’s mate, Dayo Kwen, is kidnapped during a mission. Time is running out as estrus looms on the horizon for Dayo. Once it strikes, Dayo knows his body will betray him. He’s alone, scared, and surrounded by enemies. Can help from the most unlikely sources change the course he’s set on? Will Raiden and Dayo overcome the obstacles they face? Only their belief that destiny bound them together can save them.
Review: This is Raiden and Dayo’s story. Jealousy, evil intentions and love are all abound in this addition to the The Harvest Young series. I felt so bad for Dayo. It seemed everyone was either jealous and wanted his mate or they wanted revenge for what his mates fathers decisions.
Raiden definitely had his works cut out for him trying to keep his mate safe. Though that was not always possible. I liked the way this couple interacted with one another and talked.
The overall feel to me of this story is that something was missing but I was never quite sure what. Other than that I loved it. It was an awesome read.
