For an alpha male wolf shifter promised to a female whose goal is to one day be queen, coming out has never been more explosive.
Evin KinKaid, the only son of the KinKaid pack's alpha, has a secret. One that will tear his family apart. In one year, Evin is to succeed his father as alpha and continue the dominant bloodline of his family. There's only one problem: Evin is gay. When Evin is pushed into the bed of his intended female mate, he's forced to reveal the truth. And for an alpha male wolf shifter promised to a female whose goal is to one day be queen, coming out has never been more explosive.

To Mason Thorne II, heir to Thorne Global Inc., life is a lie. To sustain his father's love, Mason has agreed to stay in the family business and to one day assume his place as CEO. Instead of reaching for his heart's desire, he's settled for a life he never wanted. But an unexpected auto accident will send Evin and Mason into each other's arms and down a path toward a destiny neither man can escape: an eternity sealed in blood.

In Bloodlines by Jessica Lee we learn quite a bit about the Kinkaid Pack, bigotry and intolerance chief among them.  I loved that within that environment Ms. Lee gave us Evin and his sister.  Evin knew he couldn’t mate the woman his father and Alpha wants for him, but didn’t want to lose his family.  I loved that he stood his ground even if the results were not what he hoped for.  I loved the strength he gained being on his own and I enjoyed the man Ms. Lee gave us.  I was happy to see that Mason was just the type a man he needed.  He too was struggling with being his own man.  While his circumstances were slightly different the results was the same.  I enjoyed their similarities even as I appreciated their differences.  Ms. Lee gave both men a starting point understandable to both and allowed them to grow from there.  Both men felt young even as they struggled to live life how they wanted to and not what was expected.  There is a message in this story that was apparent throughout but Ms. Lee showed through her characters what she wanted us to know.  It was obvious but not preachy which isn’t always easy to do and Ms. Lee did it quite well.  I loved the courage both men had to stand their ground and the resulting love that grew from their honesty.  This is the first time I have read this author but you best believe it will not be the last.
