Silas had always expected to find his fated mate early in life, like most pack leaders do. But as he nears his fortieth birthday, still single, he begins to accept that maybe he’s not meant to have a mate after all. When he finds an intruder in his territory, a young cop who smells human but also like everything he’s longed for, Silas can’t help but feel a spark of hope. Could this man be part shifter? Could he be Silas’s mate?
Cory’s conservative family believes shifters are evil, but when he meets Silas, he’s shocked by the pack leader’s gentleness and hit with feelings of desire beyond anything he’s ever experienced. All of Cory’s fantasies center around older men who take charge and take care of him, so when Silas asks if he needs a Daddy, all he can say is yes.
Torn between his family’s expectations and the pull he feels toward Silas, Cory knows he’ll have to give up his career if he follows his heart. Silas wants Cory, not fate, to decide if they should be together, so he fights his protective instincts. But an unexpected pregnancy forces their hands, and the two men have to figure out how to fit their lives together. And maybe have love at long last.
Readers were introduced to Silas (and a couple of other key characters) in Love at Lupine Bakery. That was the novella that started Silvia Violet’s Trillium Creek MPreg series. That taste was just enough to make me want to get to know them all better, especially Silas. It was obvious that he was an alpha who deserved to find his true mate. I’m so glad that Love at Long Last was the first official book in the Trillium Creek series.
Cory was adorable and his his family… not so much. In his world, humans knew all about shifters. Not all of them were prejudice, but the members of Cory’s family had a very narrow view when it came to them and found every reason they could to cause them trouble. Rather ironic considering what Cory discovered about his heritage.
Silas earned my respect in Love at Lupine Bakery, but it grew with Love at Long Last. He was a great leader and compassionate enough to put his own needs second, even when it wasn’t what was necessarily best. Which, his pack wasn’t afraid to call him out on. 😉
MPreg isn’t my “go-to” genre, but I’m kinda falling in love with the members of the Trillium Creek pack. The next “couple” is going to be interesting. I can’t wait to see how Silvia Violet makes things finally work out for a very special pair in Love Times Three. 😉
