Ronny Parker has always been aware that there was more to life outside of his Harlem apartment. When he goes to work one morning at Starbucks, he finds himself coming face to face with a reality that he was not prepared for. He finds himself the eyewitness to a fight between two shifters, a wolf and a lion, one of which bites Ronny and calls him “mate.” When Ronny wakes up the next morning he finds himself thrust into a world neither his family, nor his teachers ever taught him about and he does the only thing he can do. He starts to investigate.
Cole Tronk has been taught from an early age that he is never to mate a human, never reveal his true nature to a human and that he cannot be gay. But when he gets into a fight with his oldest friend outside of a Starbucks and finds himself smelling the most intoxicating scent ever, he throws all of those rules out of the window. Before long, Cole and his mate, Ronny are on the run from the governing body of the paranormals, humans who have now discovered that paranormals, magicks and supernaturals exist, and someone from Ronny’s past who is determined to kill them both.
Along the way, Cole and Ronny meet up with a group of paranormals, magicks, and supernaturals who are also gay, and who are researching the true history of the world and creation. What they find will not only change their lives, but the entire world and the future. Will Ronny and Cole’s mating survive all of these obstacles and when a millennias old lie comes back to bite them in the ass, will Ronny and Cole be able to deal with the consequences?
Ronny leads a normal life. He works at Starbucks full time as a barista and has a small apartment that he is proud to call his home. Just like any other day he takes the bus to work, ready for a long shift of making coffee and small talk. However on that day his entire life and view of the world is changed forever.
When Ronny hears fighting in the back of Starbucks, he immediately goes to see if he can help, but what he see’s when he turns the corner is nothing like he was expecting. His coworker and a guy he has never seen are fighting, but not fighting like he would normally expect. What Ronny sees are are shifters! The other guy is big, and looks like a lion, and when he is noticed, the lion comes at him and stops abruptly and says “mine”.
Cole only wanted to straighten things out with his best friend. He meets him at work and they end up fighting. As the fight between them becomes more intense, both shift to fight some more. When Cole hears a gasp behind him he turns to see Ronny. More than that he smells Ronny, feels him. As he gets closer he realizes this is his one and only mate. What follows is the story of these two men, from two different worlds trying to bring their lives together and stay alive!
