For the last twenty-five years, Roland’s Iberian lynx had been used as an attraction in curiosity shows. One night, strangers take him away. Upon waking, he’s disoriented and scared…until he recognizes the scent of his old friend, Vane. Separated when Roland was sold and Vane wasn’t, Vane had since been rescued, and now offers the same freedom to Roland.
With the force of Vane’s entire gargoyle clutch behind him, Roland finally feels like he can make a new start. Except, one of the gargoyles claims that they are mates, but Roland can’t sense it, revealing a secret he never wanted exposed.
Tobias is thrilled to discover that Roland is his mate until the lynx shifter denies their bond. When the pretty shifter declares he can’t bond with anyone—and Tobias learns the life-changing reason why—Tobias vows that it doesn’t matter to him. He’ll stand by and care for his mate through any difficulty. His devotion is quickly called into question when dangers from Roland’s past forces Tobias to spend time guaranteeing his mate’s safety instead of spending time with Roland. Can Tobias prove to his mate that he truly wants him and doesn’t consider Roland just another duty?

Review: This is part of a series and they should be read in order. I have always loved Charlie’s stories. She gives you a story that you will not only fall in love with but also want to hear more of them. The characters she gives you are compassionate, loving, and gentle although they have a temper no one would want to mess with. They are also very protective with their mates.
Roland had been a prisoner for over twenty-five years. He was in his Iberian lynx form shown off as if he was a pet. When he was taken at the age of fifteen the people who had him had castrated him. He was terrified and felt ashamed for what had happened to him. It was a time where he had met a gargoyle by the name of Vance. When Vance had been rescued, he had lost his memory, but once he got it back, he sent out help to rescue the young lynx. When he was brought to the clutch of the gargoyles, he found his mate. Although he didn’t know it at the time, because of what had happened to him his body was still like a child. He didn’t recognize the mating bond. But he knew that he wanted to be with Tobias.
Tobias knew right off the bat that Roland was his mate, and at first, he didn’t understand why Roland didn’t realize it. However once he was told what had happened to his mate, he knew he had to be extra careful and tenderer with him. He wanted his mate though. He knew that he was falling in love with him. When danger showed up, his molting happened knowing that his mate was in trouble. He would do anything and everything in his powers to save his mate and keep him safe.
You can feel the love that everyone has for their mates. I wished that human’s had that ability. It would be amazing to have someone care for you so deeply. I loved this story and cannot wait to get my hands on the next book in this series. Charlie has a wonderful gift and I am so glad to have her books in my library. If you love the paranormal worlds, two hot and sexy men, shifters and gargoyle’s, danger and excitement you will love this books. It offers all of that and so much more.
