A bond that surpasses blood.
Thorne has found a home as second-in-command among the hybrid bikers, and while he considers his pack mates brothers, he never forgets the stepbrother he was coerced into leaving behind. From first sight, Thorne knew he was meant to protect his stepbrother, Sage and he never stopped, until his parents pushed Thorne out of his home by threatening Sage’s safety. His parents thought their bond was unnatural and while it broke Thorne’s heart to leave, he believed it was what was best for Sage. The pack would protect Sage better than an eighteen-year-old lone hybrid shifter.
When the world tells them no.
Twelve years Sage has spent getting over losing his protector, his bodyguard, and his only friend. Thorne had been his entire world, until he suddenly wasn’t. Gone without a trace, at thirteen, Sage couldn’t believe the boy who held his heart would leave him. He spent months running away from the compound he lived in with his parents and lion pride. He’d been sure that Thorne was out there, needing his help. But, after several cruel punishments and years without more than an envelope of money sent through the mail from his former savior, Sage had to realize, his soul mate was gone. Gone, but never forgotten. With only a return address, Sage sends a letter hoping it will bring Thorne home while also dreading that it will.
They say yes.
Thorne worries that returning to his hometown of Dry Creek, Texas will cause more harm than help, but he received Sage’s letter and Thorne has never been able to refuse Sage anything. Except, when he gets there, he finds his hometown in disrepair. Relations between the humans and shifters are at an all-time low, and the sweet, innocent little stepbrother Thorne left in the safety of the pack his now foul-mouthed, sharp-witted and knocked up. Thorne knows the father of Sage’s unborn isn’t his mate. Thorne is Sage’s mate, and he’s spent too long trying to ignore that fact.
Thorne has to pick up the pieces of his broken relationship with Sage and put them back together before he loses Sage for good. Or, before the Protectors of the Pure, an anti-shifter group, unveil their latest plan to wipe shifters off the face of the earth.
Under His Command is a full-length, stepbrother mpreg romance with sugar, spice and a guaranteed HEA.
Trigger Warnings include: mentions of abuse, mentions of drug addiction and alcoholism, and death of a parent.
A jaded older shifter trying to be the alpha he isn’t collides with a cocky, young Dom…
Garth isn’t a well-liked member of his bear shifter pack. He’s got a sharp tongue and a deep-seated hatred of humans spawning from a traumatic experience years ago. Garth believes that a man his age should have his life figured out. He should be an alpha, he should find a mate to start a family with. Except, all of Garth’s nasty quips, shoves, and snarls are him trying to pretend to be that thing he is not. If he isn’t an alpha, what is he? Cassius, the youngest hybrid shifter to join the pack, is cocky, arrogant and all alpha. He also won’t stop getting under Garth’s skin, making him long for things he can’t have.
Cassius knows he doesn’t have the years or seniority in his pack but that’s fine, he doesn’t want to control a group of people. He longs for control over one man in particular. Cass isn’t sure how he is the only one to see how amazing Garth is, but he’s glad he is the only one to notice how talks of submission and spanking affect the shifter in a way that Cassius will do anything to explore. He’s obsessed with Garth—his mate—and knows that if he would simply give into his true nature as a submissive, Garth wouldn’t feel like he has to keep everyone away from him with his rudeness.
But attempting to get Garth to see past the difference in their years and understand he would be happiest under Cassius’s control will mean nothing if Cassius and the other hybrid bikers don’t discover who has been targeting shifters. All over the area, entire packs are being harmed by a strange new drug that has everyone on edge. Cassius and the rest of the hybrid bikers must find the people responsible for poisoning entire packs of shifters before they are the next ones targeted.
He knows best…
For nineteen years all Chuey needed to worry about was survival. Now that he’s safe, rescued from the jungles by his adoptive father, Logan, he can start discovering who he is and what he wants. What he wants is Ryder, the leader of an allied pack of wolf hybrid shifters. But Logan wants Chuey to have nothing to do with the older biker. He does all he can to keep them apart, including threatening the fragile friendship between the packs.
Ryder has made his fair share of enemies while leading his ragtag group of shifters. He’s made some allies too. That’s why when he senses that the son of one of his allies is his mate, he isn’t jumping for joy. The opposite. Chuey is new to the bear shifters and new to civilization in general. He doesn’t need an older man like Ryder handing him more problems. Especially a man who doesn’t only want Chuey to be his mate, but to be his boy as well.
Meanwhile, Ryder’s fiercest enemy of the moment, Marcos, is revving up an old feud. The world may be big, but their area of the world is small and Marcos doesn’t like Ryder’s pack encroaching on their territory. He uses the only tool he knows, violence, and when that violence reaches the feet of Ryder’s boy, Ryder decides it is time to end this feud for good.
Under His Care is the first book in the Hybrid Heat series. It features a May/Dec relationship, themes of dominance, light age play and a whole lot of steamy moments!
