Police Chief Nash Savino and his mate Toby Everly have spent five years teasing and flirting with one another. That is, when Toby wasn’t avoiding Nash at every turn. Nash has had many reservations about letting Toby in and getting close to the little hottie. One, he knows his mate is lying and hiding things, and as the Police Chief for the town of Crystal, as well as being mates, that is unacceptable. And two, Nash knows that once he lets Toby in, the little Santorini Fox will have him wrapped around his little finger, and that thought scares Nash. When Toby is brutally attacked and left for dead, everything changes. Nash realizes that all of the games have been useless and he could very well spend the rest of his life alone, never knowing the true love of a mate. Sitting by his mate’s hospital bed, praying for Toby to come back to him, Nash knows that if he is lucky enough for his mate to survive, then he would gladly give his heart to his mate, and all the crap from the past can be worked out, allowing them to move forward together. At least, that was his thought until a new danger comes to Crystal, threatening not just his mate, but all the residents of Crystal.

This is the first book of Haven Ranch Sovereignty Island. It is recommended to read book 1-3 of the Haven Ranch series first. Dudley was a rarity in the shifter world. A human turned into a shifter, and not just any shifter, a Bashkiria. Two animals in one, dolphin and flamingo, and fear was his middle name. Heights, dark water, spiders, snakes──heck, you name it, Dudley feared it. However, he was not going to let that stop him from living and enjoying life. With his pink pony tail, manicured nails, and come hither outfits, Dudley was ready for anything──or so he thought. Alexander is the head of the King’s Guard. He loved being an electric eel and vampire, loved being a Bashkiria world. He preferred to blend in and go unnoticed, and he faced any danger head on. That's why, when he met Dudley, he thought Fate had lost her mind. How could this man, afraid of his own shadow, flamboyant, and "take note I am in the room" attitude, be the one for him? Alex sure hoped the term "Opposites Attract" is true, because as a shifter, Alex had to trust in the choice the Gods made for him. So Dudley can run, he can hide, but Alex will get his man──or will he?
Rene and his men are known as D.O.A., Dragons of Anarchy. They were created centuries ago, by the great Heck, to find and destroy serialists by any means necessary.

While questioning a victim's mother, Rene discovered his sentience, his mate. Now all he had to do was figure out how to tell the man he was not exactly human, and he better do it fast because his dragon heat was already kicking in. Bren was the local town veterinarian. He figured something was off about SI Rene Telkin. If not from the leather jacket with a large D.O.A. patch on the back, then maybe because he drove a navy Blue Harley Davidson CVO Street glider instead of a tan sedan. Bren was not the type to get mixed up with a biker club, even if the man was a cop. However, something kept drawing him to the sexy man and it seemed that nothing would break the bond they were forming. Not even when he discovered the secret all D.O.A. agents held. A large dragon for a partner. Now Rene needs to do his best to claim his mate and also track down a serial killer, because on the last body was a note threatening the good doctor of Poconos Boulevard.
