Going out on a date with Charles Sinclair is the worst decision Sylvester ever made. The evening ends badly and he’s forced to flee but winds up in an even worse situation. It starts a series of life-changing events he could never image.  He’s scared, in pain and just when Sylvester thinks he’ll die, a voice offers him hope. 

When Jeremiah and his friends rescue a human their crazy former alpha experimented on, it’s obvious the man’s dying. Determined to save him, Jeremiah’s claims the stranger, stopping the pain that’s killing him. It’s an unexpected way to start off a mating but the men quickly become devoted to each other. Things go smoothly until Sylvester has a terrible adverse reaction to the serum, forcing them to break their bond. Can Jeremiah and Sylvester survive the separation and can they get back together?  

Jeremiah’s Heart is release three in Lynn Hagen’s Shifters of Mystery series. Due to the continuing storyline and returning characters, the books should be read in order.  

We met Sylvester briefly at the end of book two but didn’t get many details of what had happened to him. That’s where chapter one in this release picks up. It gives us lots of background details of his date with Charles, his capture that we didn’t see before and where Jeremiah steps in. It’s full of fear, suspense and pain and the author packs a lot into a short space, giving the reader a good idea of the turmoil Sylvester went through. It’s well done. 

I like this series and the underlying plot-line is progressing nicely without overshadowing the relationship between Jeremiah and Sylvester. The secondary characters, whether new or old, are interesting, adding spice, flavor, friendship and humor to the overall plot. I really want to see one with Pat and Sam in the near future. 

Then there’s Jeremiah and Sylvester. I like these two…so different in life experiences but a good match, nonetheless. The author has done a nice job with them and getting them together. The personalities of the characters are well developed, the story flow is smooth and the pages are filled with desire, passion, and danger.  It kept my attention throughout and I’m looking forward to the next release.
