Blurb: Cole Jakovich and Billy Martin find themselves in a fight that very well may take both their lives. Together they will triumph or they will fail. Only fate knows what’s in store for them and she ain’t talking.
Cole Jakovich’s job is to protect an undercover cop and his friend. Cole learns not everything in this world is as it seems when truths from his past come to the surface. The one place he’d believed to be absolutely safe is put to the test when a world he never knew existed calls a hunt, not only upon him but also on the men under his protection.
Billy Martin, former police officer, finds his whole world flipped upside down and far from safe. His choices are to run, or to stand at Cole’s side to fight the enemies coming at them from all directions. Billy does the only thing he can, especially when Cole is captured by an enemy who wants to see him dead.
The Diamond Rose is known as a refuge for people from both worlds. Will Cole and Billy be able to keep everyone safe? Or will they all go down together?
With the help of family and friends, Billy and Cole find a strength they didn’t know they had.
Review: This was a really fascinating story from start to finish that I could stop reading until the very end. I loved the fact that Cole had no idea he wasn’t human and was amazed as to who his mother was. Cole seemed like a tough guy who always tries to do the right thing and protect those in his care.
Billy seemed like a truly nice guy and he’s undercover on assignment when he meets Cole who is his mate. I was stunned by how many people in Kalethia wanted to do Cole harm. I was also sickened by the elders in their plans to seek more power which in reality they have none at all. They ruled by fear and nothing else.
Very well written with amazing details in the history of Kalethia and the families that live there. Looking forward to reading more about the different characters that were introduced in the book from Kalethia. Great fight scenes as well as hot sex between Cole and Billy.
This story had all the right things to make an excellent read, drama, mystery, suspense and action. I loved it and can’t wait to read the next book in the series. Highly recommended.
