The King And Alpha Series
Alek’s older brother, Justice—the Alpha Zenith—was the first shifter to mate with a vampire in many generations, and it was believed the rare, fated pairing would stop at him. But, it hadn’t. Aleksei ‘Alek’ Volkov was second beta, next in succession to the most powerful shifter in the world. He was proud of his title and he took his duties seriously. It was all he had. Until his true mate literally showed up on his doorstep.
While his brother—the overachiever—excelled at having a vampire as a mate, Alek wasn’t that optimistic he would. He wasn’t averse to love, and he’d often thought of how different his life could’ve turned out if he’d ever experienced the emotion. His life was a mess and he’d worn a mask of stability for a majority of that time, only showing his siblings and pack what they needed to see—a strong Volkov alpha. Not the damaged man he was, with a tortured soul and a rogue wolf.
Alek dropped his heavy head in his hands. Now, for some reason, I’ve been granted a true vampire mate. And not just any vampire. The intimidating Belleron Liatos. Lord High to the King and the leader of his army.
Belleron ‘Bell’ Liatos had come to the states for one reason—his best friend and Vampire King, Chadwick Bentley. He certainly didn’t come to be pounced on by a wolf that could act independently of its master. Not only was his destined cherished a complicated and confused man; but he was also unaware of the powerful presence that lurked in the shadows of his soul. Bell didn’t know he’d be the key to unlocking an exceptional triad that would play a critical role in fulfilling the prophesy.
This story DOES NOT contain or even mention MPREG.
No multiple pairings. No cliffhangers. Ends with a very HFN.
Warning: This book is M/M paranormal: If you DO NOT like alpha men shifting into large wolves, or vampires feeding from their destined beloveds, than this may not be the novel for you.
At the end of Book #1, which brought me to my knees by its overwhelming beauty, we are witness of the grand arrival of The Lord High - Belleron ‘Bell’ Liatos, and how Aleksei ‘Alek’ Volkov’s claimed him as his mate, or in vampire terms ‘his beloved’ Bell surrendered to Alek.
I couldn’t wait to start with #2 Shifters, vampires, and true mates are my favorites!
Bell is the right hand of the Vampire King Wick whose true mate is Alpha Zenith Justice.
Alek, Justice’s brother, has a beautiful wolf in him but he has also a dark devastating secret no one knows of. Bell can see and feel a glimpse of the secret and can feel it is big, better to say huge and destructive, so much anger, but Bell isn’t really afraid.
Alek can’t claim Bell against his will. Bell needs time. First, he wants to fight the battle overseas, against Alessandro a vampire who recruits young vampires, under false pretenses like freedom, to fight against Alpha Zenith.
Alek and his Wolf beg Bell not to go without first being mated with him. Because without the claiming, Alek can’t connect with Bell and protect him. Bell is furious, he doesn’t need a protector, he himself is a protector. If he only knew!
Alek can’t handle this and is battling with his deep settled anger.
This is just a fraction of this immensely captivating journey. There is so much story.
An absolute must-read for the fans of shifters and vampires.
I love the claiming, the pure dedication, the possessiveness and the protectiveness of true mates. I got a bit high by it all. In this read it all is strongly present and oh boy it was outstanding. In this story we have the shifters, the vampires, the hierarchy, the unconditional love. When wolf shifters and vampires are connecting, the most beautiful things happen, pure magic. We can experience the softness of furs, the yearning, the longing of true mates. There are delicious sexy scenes. The revelations of hurt souls were devastating.
This story was a thoroughly developed beauty. With stunning creatures, breathtaking environments and a plot simply fantastic. Bit by bit we get to know more about The Prophesy.
This masterly written story was immensely captivating and intriguing. It was thrilling at times and highly sensual, it also warmed my heart with all the grand gestures.
All the feelings were exquisitely described and with that, every emotion palpable!
This story is so cleverly put together, so creative, it all made sense and was acceptable. Of course, it’s fantasy I’m aware, but hey for me, when I read it’s reality and I was totally absorbed by this story. At times I wished it was reality!
The end gave me such thick goosebumps!! What a ride!
