Publisher’s BlurbRunning away twenty years ago didn’t mean Gael could ever escape his past.
Gael Martinez fled the small Texas town of Del Rey the minute he turned sixteen. Legal or not, he had to leave or end up dead. Life’s been hard, and everything Gael ever hoped for has been stripped from him. He’s close to giving up, so worn down from fighting to live every day. When incredible information reaches him that gives him a reason to hang in there, at least a little longer, Gael is afraid to hope for a better life.
An accidental encounter leads to him being told things have changed with the coyote den that had been floundering in Del Rey years ago. Miller Hudson, the coyote shifter alpha, had found his mate, and the den was now flourishing—and the biggest miracle of all, some of the shifters could now actually shift.
As tempted as that makes him to return, it could all be a bunch of lies and Gael is still hesitant, even though he yearns to go home. There’s no point if he’s only likely to be killed. Dying at another’s hands isn’t the way Gael ever intends to die.
It’s only upon discovering the changes regarding some of the humans in Del Rey that allow Gael to truly consider going home.
What he finds in the small town is more than just a home. He finds himself, and the man he’s always meant to be.
Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of BDSM, BDSM-related genital torture and spanking, as well as references to fisting and to the sexual abuse of a secondary character.
In From the Cold by author Bailey Bradford is the second book in the Coyote’s Call series. I felt this one could be read as a standalone with no problem. Gael is a coyote shifter. He is homeless, cannot change into a coyote when we first meet him. He is practically on deaths door. Then he meets the local coyote pack and starts to get back some of the shifter powers he lost.
Iker Martinez has not been to El Paso in a while he used to be a sheriff there a while back. He is a wolf shifter. He wanted a quieter job in a smaller town. He was married to a woman she was his mate. She died and he thought he would not get a chance at a mate again. That is till he meets Gael and learns he does have another mate and he is a man. Iker does a great job of being able to make that transition to M/F relationships to M/M he is willing to do whatever it takes to be with his mate. He knows what it is like to lose he wants to have what he lost again.
Iker likes pain with his pleasure so Gael has to learn to cater to that. They both have some adjustments to make. Gael finds a pack again, a home, a family, and a Mate. He really shows his alpha tendencies too. Iker is a real submissive in the bedroom so they really blend well together.
I liked how there is a story inside of the love story that makes me want to know more about the coyote pack, and where they are going in the future. There is a lot that can go wrong as well as go right. I like how Ms. Bradford spins a tale and makes me want more. If you like mm and shifters this is a must read.
