Some ranch hands want to teach him a lesson. Steven is surrounded by danger and it seems Colton is the key to his survival. Because Steven has a gift that people are dying to get their hands on. It’s a gift that has been nothing but a curse for him. Colton spots Steven working with the other construction men. They are finishing off the bunkhouse and Colton has yet to get close enough to speak to the man. But he’s determined to make Steven his, even when he discovers Steven’s dark secret. Together they strive to not only keep Steven alive, but to build a life both desperately yearn for. But when Steven goes into premature labor, Colton fears he will lose the family he’s craved his entire life. Worse, betrayal hits home when one of their own tries to cash in on the contract that is on Steven’s head.
My Review : Colten is the technological guru out at the Big Bear Ranch. He has been eyeing Steven, one of the construction crew who is helping on the new bunkhouse. Steven is very different, he is quiet and keeps to himself. Steven can sense things that people have done or what they are thinking from a single touch. It is a very debilitating condition for him , because he has no shields set up in his mind to block all the outside influence. Colten shows Steven that he is interested and would like to get to know him better. Steven shies away from him, because even though his interest is piqued, he has stayed a virgin because he can’t touch anyone without repercussions.
Rowdy the foreman on the job notices Colten’s interest and suggest he tones it down, because of the backlash that Steven would receive from the homophobic pricks on the construction crew .
Steven is not sure what it is about the big guy that draws him in , but he realizes that when he is around Colten it nullifies all the voices that normally bombards his mental faculties. Steven is on the run from the big scientific corporation run by his parents. They see Steven as their pet project and they are forever experimenting on him like a lab rat. Steven knows that as much as he likes to see and enjoy the easy camaraderie between Colten and his brothers ,he can’t stay for too long. He sees a shadow of a Bear in Colten but he doesn’t know what it means.
Colten sees a crack in Steven’s defenses and decides to seduce him. His seduction goes over really well, because Steven just can’t resist him. They start to trust each other a little more when they realize that they come from similar backgrounds where they have been betrayed by their own parents.Colten tells Steven that he is a bear and explains how the mating works and that the success will be proof of pregnancy. Steven gives himself up wholeheartedly , because he wants to belong to Colten body and soul.
Shortly after they make love, Steven has to be put in the house to do paperwork due to his extreme morning sickness. One day after sitting for hours hunched over, Steven realizes that there is something wrong with the baby after experiencing serious pains. The doctor is called and pronounces that Steven is in early labour; the only way he can stop it is by taking him to his medical facility. Shott and Colten goes to protect Steven , because they have recently learnt that Steven’s crazy parents are searching for him.
After staying in the facility for weeks watching and marveling at the beauty of his mate all swollen with his child, Colten is horny as hell because he hasn’t touched his mate sexually since he went into premature labour. Steven is really super horny as well and convinces his mate to give him a blowjob. What a blowjob it was, the orgasm immediately puts Steven out like a light. Colten goes to the bathroom for a washcloth to clean his mate up. He comes back to find doctors examining Steven, only to realize that it’s Steven’s crazy parents. They have a gun pointed at Steven’s stomach. Colten feels helpless , but he knows he can’t let them take Steven. He tries to protect Steven and gets shot in the process ,before Shott notices there is a breach in security and kills both parents.
Shott figures out that the breach is an inside job and corners the doctor who he suspects. They have to find someone else to deliver the baby when Steven goes into labour. Rene, Harland’s mother decides she is up for the job since she used to be a midwive. Moirai, a beautiful son is the newest addition to the Big Bear ranch. All this happens while Colten is recovering from his gunshot wound. Colten wakes up to find his mate and his son safe and at home. He can’t wait to make sweet love to his mate and provide a safe haven for them always. I give this my ratings of 4 – lose the underwear.
