In A Man’s Worth, Bryce Lakeland finally gets his story after seeing his entire family—and almost everyone he knows—find their mates. A joyous occasion, right? Wrong. As it turns out, Ahm has been hiding his scent from Bryce for years, masking the fact that they are fated to be mates. Poor Bryce is deeply hurt, but he can’t help but be drawn to the sexy Shadow elf despite his efforts to distance himself. He gives Ahm an ultimatum, telling him to choose Bryce or to stay away forever.
But not everything is as it seems. As the leader of the Shadow elves, Ahm is torn between tradition and love. His people don’t allow Shadow elves to mate outside of their race, and especially not with another man. Ahm’s double whammy has forced him to hide from Bryce, from his people, and from himself. But is his heart-wrenching sacrifice the right choice? How long can he deny his true nature—and his true love?
As Bryce and Ahm navigate the choppy waters of romance and politics, trust is built and truths are revealed. Lynn Hagen uses her distinct voice, laced with fantastic sarcasm and humor, to tell the story of how through love, one can find the courage he needs to stand up to prejudice and face his own fears, and possibly change the course of history in the process.
