Mari Winston has been working up the nerve to have the Council of Elders name her mate. She wants it to be Aiken Mayfield—needs it to be, she loves him after all. But when she stumbles upon a dark mage’s spell, and is separated from her inner phoenix, everything she knows is turned upside down.
Aiken Mayfield has been in love with Mari since the day they met four years ago. He dreams of waking one morning to find himself named as her mate. But unless he can find a way to reconnect her with her phoenix, it will never happen.
Rogan is part of an elite team sent out to infiltrate and eliminate the corrupted jaguar prides. While deep undercover, he finds the last thing he ever expected—his mate. Mari may be Avalorian, and she may think to get away, but she’s his. And now that he’s found her, nothing will stop him from claiming her.
