As King of the Realm, Dage Kayrs will do anything (even kill) to protect his mate and family. He is pushy, arrogant and a little impatient at times. He is also gentle, loving and caring. It has taken him three hundred years to find his mate and he will do anything to protect her, even lock her up in her room when she has put her self in danger.
My fave quote:
"I'll not be branded, Dage." She swallowed rapidly, trying to clear her head.
He raised an eyebrow. "The marking only appears when we touch our mates. love. I drank your blood, and it appeared." His jaw fiirmed. "You will be marked."
Her temper stirred to war with deisre. "No."
His full lips quirked. "I should've known the Queen of the Realm would be a pain in my ass."
On Rebecca Zanetti website she has pictures of the Dark Protectors. She has Gerard Butler shown as Dage. Great choice. I can picture Gerard calling his mate "love".
