VANISHED PRIDE Blurb
Seven sisters are entwined in a legacy larger than ever expected. One by one, they’ll find their mates from the Valendite Breed, a group of near-immortal men, and secure their place in history. The trouble now is Paige. She has too much pride to go down easily so when confronted by her mate, she convinces him to give her more time.
Donovan agrees to Paige’s plan until things around him start to go wrong. He’s losing his concentration, making mistakes on critical missions for the Terrorist Elimination Unit (TEU), and now he’s assigned as Paige’s bodyguard.
Donovan’s only weakness is his need for a mate to carry on the Breed. Now that he’s found Paige, the time has come for him to claim his mate. Taking Paige in hand might be the only choice he has as forces continue to mount against the Breed. Will she come to see their Pronouncement will need to be sooner rather than later?

Paige interrupted Donovan, “For Goddess’s sake, if that’s what it’ll take to get you to leave me alone.” She twisted the top and put it to her mouth only to feel it snatched away. “What are you doing now?”
“Not leaving you alone,” Donovan’s words were like a growl. Paige shrank back into her seat. She watched with wide eyes as he placed both waters down on a side table, lifted her out of her seat and sat down with her on top of his lap. Thankfully, she was sitting and not lying across it.
