When jackal shifter Quade Danas was banished from his pack for being gay, he spent years in the military escaping his father's prejudice before returning to civilian life as a bodyguard for Roman Howell, the teenage son of a very rich man. After Roman is in an accident that leaves him physically scarred and emotionally distant, Quade is the only one who can get through to him. As Roman becomes a man, he realizes what he wants—his bodyguard by his side and in his bed. Unfortunately, Quade can’t seem to see past the kid Roman once was to the man he has become, certain Roman’s feelings are merely misplaced gratitude. But Roman knows a lot more than Quade realizes, and he’s used to persevering, no matter how many impediments life throws his way. He wants the chance to prove to Quade that he’s strong enough for a jackal alpha to call mate.

Despite the decades Quade has been away, and the heartache of his father’s rejection, his inborn loyalty to the pack remains, and his abrupt departure left the jackal shifters without an alpha heir. As a psychopath shifter staking claim as alpha draws Quade back home, and Quade feels compelled to heed the call, he may be forced to make a choice he never anticipated. But doing so means he must leave Roman behind… unless somehow they find a way to make loyalty and love work together.

Old Loyalty, New Love by Mary Calmes starts off the L' Ange's series. I really loved this story. There are many twists and turns in this story. The chemistry and love between Roman and Quade is really what drives this story. I love how Ms. Calmes really brings the emotion to life and makes me love these characters.
Roman wealthy, has scars all over his face. He lost his family and Quade took over watching over him when he was just 16 years old. Roman is strong. He has had to be. He relies on Quade to be strong too. He though by himself is a loving, sweet, and determined man.
Quade is a jackal shifter. He was thrown out of his old pack for being gay. He thinks he is not good enough for Roman. But Roman has other ideas.
I really loved the chemistry in this book. Roman and Quade are meant for each other. I liked how strong Roman is. He is determined to get what he wants and he wants Quade. There is the beginning of back story as well in this book. I liked learning about the pack, and what might come in the future. I would love to read more in this series and find out who falls in love next.
