Teddy is finally reunited with his father, and is pregnant with a dragon egg from his mate and the love of his life.
But his ex-mate, an abusive dragon with a grudge, is determined to cause trouble, even if it's from a distance, and Teddy cannot relax.
Vince's only job as Teddy's mate and protector is to keep him calm and happy during his pregnancy. Dragon eggs are difficult to carry and can cause the end of the life for the bearer. He's a hunter, a woodsman, he knows little about the inner details of the laws that allow Teddy's former mate to constantly interfere.
When Teddy goes into labor early, Vince is helpless to protect him, and can only rely on Teddy's own strength to get them through.

Vince happily began opening Teddy’s coat, but then his large fingers barely had the chance to touch Teddy’s pants before there was the heavy, horrifying sound of a throat clearing behind them.
They both froze, and Teddy knew who it would be before he looked up.
Vince knew it, too, and he growled a dangerous, warning noise without turning around.
“James,” he said, his teeth clenched. “Now is not a good time.”
“Uh-huh,” James scoffed. “Wouldn’t want to impose on your…whatever. Dad’s looking for you.”
Teddy knew he wouldn’t be looking for Vince, so it had something to do with Teddy.
“Uh, tell him I’ll be a few minutes.”
“He wants to see you now. The physician came for your checkup, and they’re having kittens about not knowing where you are.”
Shit. He forgot about his appointment.
He loved his father and was happy his father loved him back, but these constant checkups with the doctors he was hiring to do all these house calls for one human were getting out of hand.
“Gross,” James said, which earned him another warning growl from Vince, who snapped his whole body up and around as though he would march over there and physically teach James a lesson.
James didn’t move, other than to cross his arms defiantly.
“Just hurry up. Dad pays a lot of money for your ungrateful ass, and if he finds out the help here is getting frisky with your fragile self out in the woods…”
The threat was a petty one, and Teddy wouldn’t have taken it too seriously.
But Vince did. Vince clenched his hands, his whole body vibrating with anger, but he replied all the same.
“We are coming.”
Well, Teddy sure as hell wasn’t. At least not right now, and he wanted to cry with frustration at missing out on the chance to be intimate with his mate, even if it was just a damn blowjob.
Teddy hated his brother. He really did.
* * * *
Vince knew his mate was less than pleased to be interrupted by his idiot of a brother.
Especially with what Vince was about to give to him.
But house calls from doctors were rare enough nowadays. House calls for humans were unheard of.
And with Teddy’s condition, Vince would be damned if he kept his mate from his appointment.
With the way Teddy growled and grumbled the whole way back to the vast home where he, his father, James, the rest of the staff, and the new additions lived, Vince knew he would have to figure something out to make it up to him tonight.
He brought his mate inside, and Vince knew it was petty, but he made a point of standing in the doorway to the front entrance of the home, blocking James’s point of entry.
The male stopped, his face twisting with all sorts of annoyance before he glared up at Vince.
“Get out of my way, you goddamn peasant.”
Vince smiled, feeling Teddy’s eyes on the back of his head as he leaned in close to James.
He was a dragon, all right, but James was short for a dragon at just under six and a half feet.
Something that annoyed him greatly, so Vince loved rubbing it into his miserable face.
“I am a welcomed guest. You are the staff. The staff entrance is around back.”
Red color flooded James’s face and his eyes.
He looked ready to blow his top.
Vince raised a brow at him, daring him.
In truth, he was waiting for the male to make the first move, to make the first strike. He wanted James to fight him so Vince could have the pleasure of beating the piss out of him.
James, unfortunately, saw the foolishness of this and opted to not start a fight.
Instead, he sneered at Vince and turned his back, marching away with a stiff spine, vanishing around the side of the house, off to the staff entrance.
“I’ll make you feel better very soon.”
“Now, right now, please.”
Vince wasn’t so sure Teddy was ready yet, but as Teddy reached back, taking Vince’s cock in hand, the spike in pleasure was definitely enough to make him rethink waiting any longer.
“I need you,” Teddy gasped. “Please.”
Vince groaned, thrusting into Teddy’s hand before he had to push away his palm.
Teddy would make him come way too soon otherwise.
“All right, honey,” Vince said, giving in.
As if he could fight this for any longer. “I’ll take care of you.”
He slicked his cock, not daring to give himself so much as a mercy stroke, too fearful he would come too soon and force Teddy to wait even longer for what he really wanted.
He pressed the head of his cock against Teddy’s hole, feeling his mate relaxing, waiting, anticipating.
“You tell me if anything feels—”
“I will. I will, I promise. Please, Vince,”
He couldn’t deny Teddy a moment longer. Vince pushed forward.
Teddy was still so tight. Vince was able to push inside at a steady pace but slower, so much slower than what they were used to.
He was terrified of doing something that would hurt his mate or put pressure on the egg inside him.
Teddy showed no indication of being in pain. He sighed, his eyes closing, mouth falling open as he grabbed onto Vince’s hand and held it tight.
“More, just like that, please,”
Vince chuckled, kissing Teddy’s shoulder.
At least his enthusiasm was helping Vince to relax enough to do this.
He kept his thrust short and shallow. He held his mate from behind, holding Teddy firmly against his chest.
Teddy was right. This did feel like a hug. It was intimate and good in a way they both had needed.
“I…love this.” Teddy sighed. “I love you.”
Teddy looked back at him. Vince kissed his perfect lips. “I love you too.”
Vince grunted suddenly as Teddy clenched around Vince’s cock. “Sweetheart, you keep doing that, and I won’t last.”
He was already in danger of popping off.
“I don’t mind,” Teddy panted, his cheeks flushed and lips even brighter after their many kisses. “Come inside me. I want to feel it.”
Vince grinned, fucking into his mate with just a touch more force, but just a touch. Teddy’s mouth dropped open in a soft sigh.
“That’s what you want?”
Teddy opened his eyes, those deep browns blown up with lust and pleasure. “Like you don’t,”
Vince snorted a laugh, his thrusts briefly stopped by their laughter. “Yes, I do.”
That was the nice thing about Teddy carrying his egg. They could make love without the added protection of a dragon condom.
Not like Teddy could get pregnant with another dragon egg at this point, after all.
Vince began moving and thrusting with more energy. Teddy reached his palm out, holding on to Vince’s face while they looked at each other.
It was the most intimate, lovemaking they’d ever had, aside from that first time after Vince got his act together and came to claim his mate.
Another kiss. Another soft sigh. Another raspy please, and Vince was just about done.
His testicles felt tight. He tried to hold off, but Teddy clenched so beautifully around his cock that Vince didn’t know how he was supposed to stop himself.
