Stuart Reid was a Dark Fae and an Iron Master who had the ability to bend iron at his will. He was exiled by his own people because they feared him. He found a place to call home in Shiftertown outside of Las Vegas. He spent his time watching over the beautiful, brave and strong woman who'd awakened something unexpected inside him. And the cubs, she cared for.
Peigi, a bear shifter who was rescued from an evil shifter and was giving shelter and protection into the Las Vegas Shiftertown that was run by Eric Warden (MATE CLAIMED). Reid and the six orphaned cubs she looked after have been the balm her soul needed in order to heal. She felt a strong connection to the sexy as sin lonely man but it scared her as well cause she'd been hurt before.
When his people send him an urgent message, she knew in her guts that the man she'd come to know and developed feelings for was in grave danger. She was willing to do anything to keep him safe even if it meant losing her own life. Reid's needed help from the Red Wolf, Dimitri Kashnikov in order to help his people from the horrors of the high Fae.
Loved the bond between the cubs, Peigi and Stuart. They were FAMILY, no matter where they came from, they had each other's backs. Cain whom we've met previously was the one that reached out to Reid for help. Just as him and Peigi decided to give into what was growing between them, her past came back to haunt her. But Reid was her shield and vice versa.
They found themselves in Fearie with an unwanted companion, they had to stick together until they made it back into the real world. Meanwhile everyone was worried about them being MIA, Ben was the only who could travel into Faerie to find his new friends. Reid still had a decision to make and when he took it, Peigi was right there beside him.
They helped Cain, the enemies never imagined what was awaiting them when both sides worked together. The dokk alfar and the shifters were a force to be reckoned with. They were all still in danger but new alliances and friendships were made. They will be ready for when the high Fae strike again.
Peigi, Stuart and their cubs finally got their HEA.
It was great catching up with Graham McNeil (WILD WOLF), Dimitri & Jaycee (RED WOLF), Angus & Tamsin (MIDNIGHT WOLF), Dulan and Sean Morrissey and many others. Ooh I can't forget about that lovely haunted house of Jasmine's (WILD THINGS).
