[Book #1 in the Blackwood Pack series] ________________ Asher has been abused by the man who has held him prisoner for as long as he can remember. He longs to be free from the unjust violence, but there are reasons he has to stay, people he can't leave behind. Kade has been away from his pack and finally decides to return. While doing border patrol he catches a whiff of what seems to be an average wolf. The only thing is... that wolf is his mate. Determined, Kade takes Asher away from his abuser (along with two others). Asher, not being used to people being kinda, is suspicious at being welcomed into Kade's pack with open arms. Will Kade be able to show Asher that he deserves love? Can Asher take down the walls he no longer needs to survive? And what will they do when Asher's abuser wants him back, even going as far to enlist a rival pack? _________________ ---The Blackwood Pack series--- -Worthless -His Reluctant Mate (coming soon) -Let Me Be Your Drug (coming soon) -Lies and Bullet Wounds [Side Story/Prequel] (coming soon) _________________ WARNING: This story is a HOMOSEXUAL romance between two GUYS.
