Following the customs and edicts of the pack Elders and Shamans Levi is bonded with his human lover Ian and they are forced to separate for a year’s time. If the bond truly exists between them they will be able to use the bond to reunite when the year is up.
The time apart was hell for Levi, there were days and weeks he barely coped with being so far from his bonded mate. If not for the support of his pack Levi wouldn’t have lasted out the year.
The time’s passed, Levi waits for Ian to appear while thoughts and ideas race through his head as to what they will do now that they can be together. No longer will anyone be able to object to Levi bonding with a human or bonding with a man. As the hours slowly pass Levi feels Ian getting closer. When Ian finally walks into the clearing Levi knows that his bonded mate is no longer the man he once was, now he is the hated enemy, a vampire and…still in love with his maker, Darius. Betrayal leaves him speechless.
The Given and the Taken takes the characters through hell and back in a non-stop action packed drama.

Everything in The Given and the Taken pulses with tension, suspense, and passion leaving readers breathless by story’s end. Wanting to know what happens next is a given in this highly addicting tale of true love.
