Bald Eagle wants his mate, Cheyenne, but he’s been fighting the need to take his mate for a while. Cheyenne is an omega who is able to heal wounds both inside and out. Bald Eagle is scared his inner demons will tear him and Cheyenne apart if they mate.
Doctor Maximus Samuel turns out to be the third mate for Bald Eagle and Cheyenne. He doesn’t have a dark past so mating with Cheyenne isn’t hard. When Bald Eagle sees that Cheyenne and Maximus are able to mate without problems, he thinks it’s time for him to leave so that Cheyenne can be happy. Will the past that haunts Bald Eagle destroy them all when his mates won’t let him leave?
Bald Eagle by Lynn Hagen, the seventh book in the Zeus’s Pack series, is a very emotionally packed story. Bald Eagle has some real horrors in his past and watching him have to relive them was heart wrenching. Cheyenne is a strong, sweet, and loving person; he wants his mate but he understands that to heal you have to relive the past and that the amount of pain Bald Eagle has is enormous.
Max, on the other hand, doesn’t seem to understand that Bald Eagle’s past is very tortured. He’s new and has not had to relive a lot of the past Bald Eagle has lived, like the readers of this series and his mate Cheyenne have. I thought that as a doctor, he came off as a little heartless when he almost demanded Bald Eagle bond with Cheyenne, but to be fair, it turns out he didn’t realize just what that would entail and once he does, well, it’s too late.
I found this to be one of the best in the Zeus’s Pack series, but it is not by any means a standalone story; this book will be a much better read if you read the series in order. For me, a fan girl of this series, I found it to be a strong loving addition to the series and I’m very glad I got the chance to read it.
