One moment Riley Murrough is living a normal life working in a coffee shop, and the next he’s running for his life from demons, learns he bears the mark of a shape-shifter king from a magical realm, and—worst of all—he’s destined to become the mated prince to the arrogant tiger shifter he would rather strangle.
Khalon, the shifter king, is equally distraught at the idea of being bound to a human prince, and along with his Soldati warriors, he sets out to return Riley to his own world where he belongs. On their journey they might discover why the priestess brought them together—if they can escape the demons and make it to her alive.
Oh. My. God! I freaking LOVED this story...and that narrator? Slap on that Khalon’s accent, and he can read me the phone book!
Although short this story hit the spot. It was just different enough that I got lost in the world and the story. I immediately fell for Riley, with his natural charm and happy disposition, even with suddenly finding himself running for his life from demons while being pushed away by the guy that’s supposed to be his mate. Khalon was this tough Soldati warrior and Prince, loved by his people and a fearless leader. But one Riley Murrough has a way of disarming him without him even knowing. But despite even the good times they have in the story Khalon insists Riley cannot be his mate since only a Soldati can be strong enough to stand by his side and rule.
Ahh, life has a way of showing us what’s true and right even when we don’t want to see it. I wanted to kick Charlie Cochet for how she brought that out in Khalon, but I will reluctantly admit it made the story even better! If that was possible!
I will repeat...Manuel Pombo with Khalon’s accent is the best thing I’ve listened to in years. Holy Moly! Not only is his voice sexy as ****but he gave a true performance at every turn and made me so freaking happy that I hadn't read this first because his way is sooooo much better than my measly voice ;)
