As with many of the Virkolans, Patrea has a reason to dislike the Angellum. The loss from years past lingers, leaving Patrea less than eager to form close bonds. One man has gotten past his defenses, his bunkmate Hadreal.

Hadreal is a touch older but has cleaved out a portion of his heart, just for Patrea. In the past, he was reluctant to act on the attraction. New developments between the two have left Hadreal sure the feelings are mutual.

A truth withheld, a battle for life and a surprising discovery will thrust Patrea and Hadreal into each other’s arms. Is it enough to help the attraction grow into something more substantial?

Shrouded Angel is the second story in the Virkola Dreams series. Shayla Kersten does a fantastic job of developing the storyline, thanks to her interesting characters, surprising twists, explosive action scenes and delicious erotic moments. Patrea’s fears are understandable and well illustrated. I felt my heart race a bit each time he came in contact with those who took so much from him. Hadreal is the mate who helps Patrea to begin healing, while providing substance for his sizzling sexual craving. They take their lovemaking seriously, leaving little doubt that two very dominant men are eager to play. The story’s developments leave room for at least two more stories and I’m anxious for the next installment.
