The Protectors, Volume 1
The secondary characters in the best-selling Armageddon Mates series get their own stories.
Erin and her family are special, and because of their "gifts" they move often so people don't notice how strange things happen when they're around.
Erin's new job with a catering company takes her into a world she didn't know existed. She learns her family isn't so special after all when she's "claimed" by a werewolf. Jarrod explains that he's one of many shifters who help save the world, and she's his mate.
Unsure of her new situation, and if she has the strength to deal with it, Erin gives herself a week to see if she can fit in with this new life. Can Jarrod convince her that she's the one for him and she doesn't ever again need to move or worry about her family's gifts being discovered?
Lexie's life changed six months ago when she was saved from demons by a group of werewolf shifters. Since then she's watched her new friends find mates and is envious of their loving relationships. She craves what they have.
Duke had almost given up hope of finding his mate. He decides to join a different shifter group in a new country and is surprised when only a couple of days after arriving he meets his mate. The leader of the shifters tells him to take the time to woo her and let her have a chance to get to know him before he makes her his.
Lexie is excited when she meets her own mate, but things aren't what she expected and she starts to worry that Duke doesn't really want her.
Duke is trying to give Lexie the time she needs but is impatient for her to be his. He becomes frustrated when she distances herself and their mating looks to be doomed.
Will these two be able to find their happily ever after?
