So far all the Lakelands have found their mates but one, Bryce.  However, Bryce has known his mate for a while now and has only recently found out that the man has been masking his scent.  When the bear shifter gives Ahm an ultimatum, he is unprepared to see his mate shimmer away. 

A Man’s Worth is the 31st book in Ms. Hagen’s ongoing series, Brac Pack.  This story tells the readers about Bryce, the last of the Lakelands to find a mate.  I could not believe what Ahm did and totally understood Bryce’s reactions.  As readers of this series know, finding your mate is important to all paranormals so Bryce’s reactions were believable.  I did, however, understand to some extent why Ahm felt he had to do what he did.  All this conflict makes their coming together difficult, but not impossible.  I had to laugh at the way Ahm reacts to life on the ranch, especially when the animals are involved.

The men’s relationship is not the only aspect of this story that will hold the reader’s attention.  There is a lot going on with the Shadow elves and while Ahm is trying to help his people, they are not very open to change, which readers will see when they find out about Bryce.  This is definitely a story that shows some families are better chosen than born into. 

Bryce’s brothers play an important part in this story, lending Bryce all the support they can give him.  Of course, that means there is some mischief along the way and I had to bust out laughing when Ahm gets his revenge. 

A Man’s Worth is a fast paced read and the many secondary characters help move the story along nicely.  Fans of this series will love this story, which I am sure will find its way on many keeper shelves.
