Flynn, lion alpha of the Bad Blood Crew, has had enough of fated mates. Every time one of his crew falls in love, a crap-ton of trouble rains down behind them. Besides, he’s…Flynn. Dominant.

Flynn protects his people and keeps them alive—period. “Happy” is not in his vocabulary.
Kira has been officially dead for twenty years—raised in secret after the Dragon House of Al-Maddeiri was wiped out in a clan war when she was only a child.
