Finn Macmillan is at odds with himself. The son of the alpha, he hadn’t even been thinking of his purpose in life when suddenly, life drops him a handsome young prince in the middle of the road on the way home to Hidden Lake, a haven for shifters away from the eyes of humanity.
And while Finn sees no problem in claiming his mate, Kahlil fears putting down roots. After all, he is being hunted.
How will Finn calm the exiled princeling down and make him see that with his rightful mate, Kahlil is Safe and Sound?

Exiled because he is gay.  Forced to leave his home or die by stoning.  That is the choice forced upon Kahlil.  He refused to be something he wasn’t and found himself alone and on the run because of it.  But fate steps in when one least expects it.  Kahlil’s brand new car breaks down among the mountains of Montana, luckily within walking distance of Hidden Lake.  Kahlil avoids death by the elements when he meets Finn.  Finn is the Alpha’s son and is surprised by his attraction to Kahlil.  Can he convince Kahlil to stop running and that he is Safe and Sound not only within his arms but within his town?  I really enjoyed this new series by Frey Ortega.  Both Kahlil and Finn were young but handled their mating well.  Kahlil was innocent of body but tested in mind while Finn was experienced in body but less aware of politics.  Together they were able to learn from each other even as grew as a couple.  Mr. Ortega blended these men who on the surface had little in common in such a way that their relationship had no clear dominant even though Finn was definitely an alpha.  I enjoyed seeing both men bend and accept each other.  This story was well written and I am looking forward to seeing what Mr. Ortega has in store for the other residents of Hidden Lake.
