Blurb: 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.

Review: Riley is minding his own business when suddenly he is attacked by demons. Khalon and his warriors come to the rescue and whisk him away to another realm. Riley is not happy and tells them all this. He wants to go home. But alas he is the mate of Khalon who is also not happy with the idea of being mated to a human.
They all travel to go to the high priestess to correct the bond. But along the way the two grow closer and secrets are revealed casting a new light on why the high priestess sent Khalon to Riley.
I really enjoyed this story so much. It was both intriguing and fascinating. Learning about the Soldati was very refreshing. I loved that Riley was no pushover; he was sarcastic and humorous at times as well as understanding. Khalon seemed a bit uptight but that did not diminish the story. His character fit the story perfectly.
Many other characters were introduced in this first installment. I can’t wait to see what is in store next. Filled with action, drama, and sexy men this book grabs hold and does not let go until the very end.
