Like the electricity he commands, Pierce Blackmoor streaks through life on raw power and pure sexual energy. His conquests on the battlefield and in the bedroom form his foundation, but that bedrock crumbles when his younger brothers’ abilities surpass his own. Pierce finds himself at an all-time low, and clawing his way back to the top becomes his only concern.
Pierce’s plan to reassert his dominance, however, takes a backseat when he wounds Kale Aquilo, an emissary of the Beast King, lord of all shifters.
Kale’s beguiling nature shoots like a lightning bolt straight to Pierce’s soul, and when the soft-spoken Kale relays that a virus is killing his people, Pierce abandons his quest for power to do something he has never done before—protect someone other than himself.
As Kale, Pierce, and his brothers struggle to find the root of the magical virus spreading plague across Aeaea, the shifter island, they face a gauntlet of old and new foes. Soul struck, Pierce and Kale must uncover the truth behind the conspiracy gathering in the shadows.
Pierce is really feeling at an all time low, he is supposed to be able to protect his family as the oldest and he recently found out that he can’t do that. He knows that his father is keeping things from him, and suspects his brothers are to. He uses anger to hide his fear, but how long can he keep this up. It’s clear that they are getting stronger than he is.
Kale is a kind and happy, he is also an avian shifter. A dove, and that makes Pierce want to hold him close and protect him. Kale is a messenger for the shifter king, but he thinks that he is somehow something less because he is not a predator. Yet when ever Pierce looks at him he sees a man full of courage and love for his fellow-man and shifter.
As they work against a common enemy, they learn that it takes trust, family and magic. The magic families all pull together when they go against the evil that is attacking the shifter. Will Pierce find the strength it takes to protect everyone he loves? Can Ķale find the love and faith needed to believe in Pierce when it matters the most?
