The Elven King’s Love | Devon Vesper
Fated Elves #2
Release Date: March 19th, 2021
A former king must learn to compromise or lose his mate forever.
Living in a grand castle is awesome. But after a while, Dustin, a guy accustomed to hard physical labor surrounded by co-workers he considers family, can’t handle staying home and nearly isolated without going absolutely insane. Dustin yearns for more freedom, but Casersis restricts him for his safety.
Casersis longs for a soulbond so badly his soul feels like an open wound. But he fears Dustin will refuse him, or worse, run away screaming when he learns what the soulbond entails. To avoid his worries, Casersis takes Dustin on dates. If Dustin is busy having fun, he can’t hound Casersis for why he’s always so sad. Or so Casersis thinks.
When Casersis and Dustin accidentally soulbond, neither of them are prepared. Dustin isn’t fully an elf yet. The soulbond’s ancient magic ravages Dustin’s body, sending him into random fits of excruciating pain. And if they don’t find a way to compromise about Dustin’s freedom, it may just be too late.
This 70,000-word non-shifter omegaverse novel is set in a world where mPreg (male pregnancy) is a fact of life. However, this series does not end with a baby or pregnancy.
“Something wrong, Kev?”
He smirked. “Dad’s being a shit.”
“Yeah. I’ve noticed that, too.”
Kevin snorted and shifted until his ankle rested on his opposite knee. “I’ve tried to tune it out, but his avoidance is driving even me nuts. I don’t see how you put up with it.”
I sighed and saved my work. After powering down the workstation, I slumped down in the comfortable desk chair and rubbed my eyes with my thumb and forefinger. “Mostly because I can almost feel how distressed it makes him. Cass wants to tell me, but it’s like he can’t. It’s killing him, but I just don’t know how to pry it out of him without losing my cool and getting in a fight with him. I want to help him, not push him away.”
Groaning, I thumped my head back against the chair and stared at the ceiling. “I’d ask you if you knew what was wrong with him, but even if you knew, I’d want Cass to be the one to tell me. I just hate how he’s making himself miserable by keeping it locked away and how it’s making me miserable because when I ask, he shuts me out or changes the subject thinking I don’t know what he’s doing.”
Kevin grunted and ran a hand over his short hair. “I wish I knew, kid. If I did, I’d at least let you know if it was something stupid you needed to drag out of him, or if it was something important that you needed to be patient for.”
“Either way, it’s important,” I said softly. “Whether it’s important to us or not, it’s important to him, or he’d have spilled his guts long before now. He wouldn’t continue letting it torture him. Or, at least, I hope that would be the case.”
Kevin nodded. “I hope so, too.”
About the Author
If there’s one thing Devon likes most, it’s chaos. She has a chaotic mind, messy house, and throws her characters into every calamitous situation possible. When she isn’t writing, she’s editing or formatting other authors’ works, building websites, creating graphics, reading, playing video games, or watching Fortnite streams on Twitch. She likes to stay busy. So yes. Chaos.
Starting in 2003, Devon turned her writing bug away from poetry and online role play in chat rooms to write her first novel. Yes, it was trash, but the process of learning to edit that piece of garbage spurred her to learn more and more. By 2013, she read an author by the name of Raythe Reign, and somehow, Raythe’s stories finally made all that learning in Devon’s mind click. She wrote her first semi-salable book in two weeks. The next in ten days, and by the beginning of 2014, had seven books written.
Were they all trash? No, but she’s in the process of rewriting them, and has already written one, turning Duty and Sacrifice into three books of a nine-book series, The God Jars Saga. Those three books were followed by more, and the last two books in the series will be published in the first quarter of 2019.
Born on a Navy base in Patuxent River, Maryland, Devon has traveled the world, living in Sigonella, Sicily for three years, and visiting many European countries before moving back to the states around the age of seven. She’s lived in Florida for sixteen years, Oklahoma for a year, and Pennsylvania for the rest.
She graduated from surgical technology school near the top of her class in 2004, and uses her medical and worldly knowledge to enrich her books whenever possible. Being the worldly woman she is, and having spent most of her teens as a broody goth, Devon has four tattoos, nine piercings, loves techno, electronica, dubstep, and similar music genres, and has an incurable internet addiction.
She builds her own computers, can’t stand Mac-anything unless it’s to format books in Vellum, and purple and black are her favorite colors, though that can change to burgundy and gray depending on the day. Since she has bipolar disorder, PTSD, social anxiety disorder, general anxiety disorder, clinical depression, and has trouble leaving her house due to all that, Devon works full time as an author and editor, and spends as much time as she can talking to other authors and her readers.
