Gabe Stewart has everything he ever wanted. Mortal Earth is safe. He’s a super-hero Protector whose best friend is within telepathic shouting distance. And then there’s his soul-mate, Singer. He knew right away she was the one he’d been waiting for.

But Gabe’s world shatters when Singer professes she doesn’t love him. On top of that, his mother admits she’s been messing with his memory making him doubt everything he’s ever known. And just when it seems things can’t get any worse, his best friend in the whole freaking world, Kellen St. James, wants Gabe to stop being his Protector. Being a Protector is who Gabe is. What will happen if he’s not standing between the prince and danger?

When the man who’s sacrificed his freedom is faced with life alone, which path will he choose? Will he remain the last Protector? Or will he finally get the happy ending he deserves?

*A Faerie Wedding is a companion novella--intended to be read after the other books in the series. It is a New Adult novella and features adult language and situations.

EXCERPT

Tears spilled over and onto her cheeks. Singer rarely cried. I bet she'd take it out on me later. Hopefully, when she was wearing a leather outfit. 

Please, let there be a leather outfit.

Stephen had us repeat some things I barely remembered. Everything we'd said already tied us together. The rest–just a technicality.

"By the power vested in me by all of Faerie," Stephen said.

"Dad," whispered K.

Singer sucked in a breath.

Stephen's eyes widened. "B-by all the power vested in me by a very local municipality."

Singer grinned.

"I now pronounce you Mr. And Mrs. Gabriel Stewart." Stephen's voice sounded triumphant. I was the winner, though. "You may kiss the bride."

I framed her face with my hands. Singer had tied herself to me now. How in the world had I ever ended up with a girl as flipping sweet as Singer? And now that I'd have her for a lifetime, what exactly would I do with her?

Yeah. Guess I could think of a few things.
