Excerpt:

The two men sat across the table from each other both frowning over their next mission. It was bringing up an old argument they had both been avoiding for over a year now. Dorian clamped his jaw tight and glared.

“What other choice is there? Stop being resistant to your destiny and set a course for Pleiades. You have to go tell the investigating counsel the whole truth,” he said, glaring at Liam Synar who was looking at the com station with murder in his eyes. “You know you can’t let Ania be punished for something out of her control. Besides which, your demon might kill more people because of her.”

“Malachi is not my demon, and don’t you think I realize the risks?” Synar asked stiffly. “I fear my brother was behind the recent attack on her and her parents. When Conor discovers the group he sent has been killed, he’ll know Malachi is nearby. I just wish I could rescue Ania without her planet announcing she’s a demon host to every other bloody planet in the Alliance. The Pleiadians believe in making things public. The day after I go there, Conor is going to know exactly where Malachi resides.”

Dorian nodded. “How can you face conflict after conflict on planets full of creatures who kill without thought and yet hesitate over this? Do you really fear your brother that much?” he asked.

“Yes, because no matter how much time has passed, my death is still his goal. More I fear what Conor would do if he actually gains control of Malachi. I can’t let that happen,” Synar said. “I’m caught between the past and the present, and I curse my father every day for that fact.”

Using his Siren intuition that he’d spent centuries perfecting, Dorian scanned his friend’s energy and saw that fear of his treacherous sibling was not Liam’s largest concern. The worst thing Liam feared at the moment was facing the wrong he had done to his mate for the past two years.

“Are you also worried about seeing Ania again after all this time?” Dorian asked, bringing up the touchy subject in the gentlest manner he could.

Synar took a moment and then answered with a question of his own. “Did you know Jonas before he hosted Malachi?”

Dorian shook his head slowly. “Just barely. Why?”

“Jonas dreamed of having a family and was trying to convince his favorite bonding female to formally mate him. When I put Malachi into Jonas to save his life, the female severed her relationship with him almost immediately. She said there was something different about Jonas and she couldn’t bring herself to bond with him anymore,” Synar said sadly. “I never felt that aversion with Ania, but I also never bonded with her before I left. She wasn’t healed enough. In our last discussion, she accused me of no longer wanting her. I let her believe it.”

“I still say that all your concerns would have fixed themselves over time if you’d just taken her with us. Do you really still think the answer was to abandon her completely?” Dorian asked.

“Regretting the past will not change what I did,” Liam said, frowning.

“Yes that is true Liam, but avoiding it won’t make it go away either,” Dorian said.

Dorian hoped the familiarity of hearing his first name would help the message get through his friend’s strong mind. Honor and duty had stifled Liam’s personal growth.

“I didn’t abandon her,” Synar said, the question bitter on his tongue even after all this time. “I believed if I left Conor would chase me and leave her alone. It’s mostly worked for the last two years. That proves I was right to leave her and the demon where they were both safe from Conor.”

“Maybe from your perspective your plan worked. What do you think the cost has been to your mate?” Dorian asked. “What do you think Ania feels about it?”

“Do you think I did this randomly? Without thought to the pain for us both? Well, I didn’t. I knew it would hurt us.” Synar drummed his fingers on the table. “Though I haven’t finished the third training book, I can tell you there’s nothing about demons being hosted in mates in the first two books of training. My father would be sorely disappointed in the demon master I’ve turned out to be. Yet I would do the same again to save Ania’s life. The decision is as horrendous to me now as it was when I made it, yet I would repeat it. I’ve all but gone mad dwelling on it.”

“I’ve known Ania a lot longer than you have, Liam. Her spirit is resilient and truer than any creature I have ever known. She bears the mark of the creators inside her. I believe she remains much more than a demon host body. In fact, she is a more complex being than you ever took the time to discover, which is why you underestimate her. You have always been blinded from seeing the whole person by focusing only on the physical desire you feel for her,” Dorian said.

“It was never the physical, Dorian. She was always small and fragile looking, and the lack of heat in her was vexing to me. I had to always be careful when we bonded. So no, it was not the physical. It was the spirit inside her, the way she had of seeing and dealing with things. I’ve always liked older females who were very settled in themselves,” Synar said. “Ania is unique. She can’t be replaced. It’s why I haven’t dissolved our mating agreement.”

Dorian’s spirit leapt to know that Liam Synar still had a great affection for his teacher and friend. Though he hadn’t been the catalyst for their meeting, he had counseled Ania to give his friend a chance. He had teased Liam in the beginning, but Dorian had seen they were meant for each other in a way few mated couples ever were. It was not the kind of gift from the creators that anyone should set aside—for any length of time.

“Indeed—unique is a good word for Ania Looren. She deserves more than you have given her, Liam. Don’t make me choose between the two of you again. I will choose very differently next time,” Dorian warned.

Synar nodded as Dorian stood and walked to the door.

“As a celibate Siren, you are a male quite adept at avoiding his own destiny. How can you claim to know so much about mine? Are you ever going to claim your own mate, Dorian? I’m not the only one who’s been avoiding things for two years,” Synar reminded him.

“Have I killed the other males in her life yet? No I have not. I know precisely what I am rejecting, and yet I would not stand in the way of her finding happiness with other males. Can you say the same? What if Ania Looren one day finds another male who will not walk away from her in times of trouble?” Dorian asked, shrugging as he walked out of the room.

Synar frowned at his friend’s back. It had honestly never occurred to him that his Pleiadian mate might one day replace him. He assumed Ania’s fidelity was bred into her in a similar way as his. His body didn’t even long for another female. In fact, his desire was dormant until he thought of her.

Now Dorian’s words made him wonder if hosting Malachi could have changed Ania’s nature. Had she perhaps already found someone else?

Synar rose from the conference table and headed to his room to study the books of training again. His mind was now filled with dark thoughts about the only female that he’d ever wanted badly enough to bind her to him.
