A Prideful Mate (Supernatural Mates)
Lion shifter Kevin had long suppressed the craving for the touch of another man. He always knew it was the hard form of a man he preferred. Now that he had two cubs of his own, it was time to find his mate. At the prodding of his cub's mother, Kevin halfhearted signed up for the online dating service Werekin Wanted and found "the one". Payce, a jaguar shifter living in Seattle is the man of Kevin's dreams.
The Cascade Mountains is home to the lion pride. The characters are engaging with fantastic interaction. Kevin recognized Payce as his mate the moment he saw Payce's photo. Kevin is easy going until his mate is threatened; then Kevin is all action.
Payce is a hard working straightforward man who never considered he had enemies until he was nearly killed by an unknown assailant. Like any new relationships, Kevin and Payce must become familiarized with having a mate. Both men exhibit momentary doubts, but are able to swiftly smooth away the few emotional creases they each encounter.
A wonderfully enchanting story that I enjoyed immensely.
