[Siren Classic ManLove: Erotic Romance, Alternative, Paranormal, Shape-shifter, MM, HEA] Dr. Adam Richards was raised in a time where being gay was taboo. Like most men of his time, he settled down, married a woman, and had children. Thirty years later, divorced and ready to start over, he wishes he’d been true to himself back when he was younger and desirable. Who’d want an old man like him? And what would his sons think if they knew the truth? Then Adam meets the young, confident, and gorgeous Aaran MacNair. Adam is positive he’s too old for him. But Aaran has a secret, he’s a thousand-year-old dragon shifter, and what’s more, he claims Adam is his mate. A single date quickly spirals into a moment of passion, igniting the bonding process. But Adam’s son interrupts, halting the completion of the bond. Feeling the effects of the mating heat, Aaran has two options—leave or risk killing Adam’s son—both choices have devastating consequences.

Colonel Jack Marsh, decorated for bravery during World War 1, is now with M15, working closely with the P.M, Mr. Chamberlain. In 1938, Hitler’s armed forces are on a relentless assault across Europe. Jews are being rounded up and sent to concentration camps, trying to escape anyway they can. Adolph Vanir and his wife, Florence, are such Jews, arriving in the UK around 1934. Living in St. Anne’s Court where he has a small business, as well as his clandestine activities he has forsaken his Jewish roots, much to the sadness of his wife. Colonel Marsh becomes aware of Adolph Vanir’s activities, and has instructed a colleague to watch him. The formation of Local Defence Volunteers and Air Raid Patrol in 1937 took men who were unable to go to war for one reason or another. Harry Lloyd was one of them. A worker at the London Docks making ships, he was exempt from call up, though he was a soldier between wars. Married to Mattie, and with one child, Lorna, perhaps Harry was saved for better things. The Vanirs and the Lloyds cross paths and are linked to the assassination attempt on the War Minister, the man who is now Prime Minister.
