The paranormal world is in chaos. The elders are tired of their younger people playing the field, causing trouble, and fighting with each other. Everyone who attends the UPAC Conference now has twenty-four hours to claim a mate of a different species. If they don't, they will never have a mate. The spell is cast. There is no escaping the Midnight Matings.
Ten minutes after setting eyes on the sexy little phoenix shifter, Zaiden finds himself accidentally mated to the man. He doesn’t know how it happened. The last thing he remembers, they’d been trying to escape.
Asher isn’t exactly thrilled about their mating either, but he doesn’t have a choice. Giving up his life and everything he owns in Mexico, he commits himself to Zaiden and their new relationship. Luckily, he actually kind of likes the guy. Unfortunately, someone else does, too. Someone who’s willing to do anything to remove Asher from the picture.
“Yeah, it was my first kiss, but I liked it. Stop being such a drama queen.” Asher preened at the compliment, puckering his lips and puffing his chest out. “Would you like another one?” Zaiden cuffed him in the back of the head again. “Focus.” Rubbing his head, Asher glared. “Are you always this violent?”Zaiden and Asher
“Food, shower, and clothes—I knew I liked you.”Asher to Zaiden
“You’re going to make my life very interesting, aren’t you?”Zaiden to Asher
“You’re a sex therapist?” “It’s just my job. You look like I found the Holy Grail or something.”Asher and Zaiden
“Hurrying up the walkway, he hurdled the steps and burst through the door, eager to see his mate and congratulate him on the new car. He froze just inside the doorway, then turned and walked back out, looking up at the numbers above the door to make sure he had the right house.”Zaiden Reed
“You are my fire, Zaiden Reed.”Asher to Zaiden
“Pretty words will get you everywhere.”Asher to Zaiden
“Motherfucker! It does make perfect sense when you say it like that.” “I know. That’s why I’m the smart one, and we just keep you around to look pretty and get the stuff off the high shelves.”Zaiden and Asher
“This doesn’t mean I trust you. If you try anything, I will incinerate you and laugh while you scream. Got it?”Asher to Andrew
