Breakable Faith: A Winter Romance
(Vale Valley, Book 8)
by Michael Mandrake
One night equals a test of faith for Father Lance…
Trouble always finds Mateo and he’s succumbed to it several times with or without help. However, after running with the wrong kinds of people, he’s decided to turn a new leaf. His attention to detail lands him a job as a tattoo artist, making people’s dreams come true through body art. With this steady gig and his grandmother’s support, Mateo is convinced he can live mostly anxiety free.
Father Lance has always suppressed his needs to care for others. The older alpha is Vale’s most handsome and available bachelor, but Lance has no interest in hooking up. Instead, he puts all his energies into his church. Although loneliness is a constant partner, Lance refuses to let it stand in the way of his goal.
One wintery night, Lance spots a man in need of assistance and immediately calls for help. Despite Lance’s instincts crying out to the victim, he ignores those desires.
As he’s being rushed to the emergency room, Mateo feels his destined mate near. Once he recovers, he’s determined to find his forever partner to build the relationship that will stabilize the young omega’s life.
Warning: On page violence and a near death experience.

Sassy, sexy and fated, I loved Lance and Mateo!
This story was my first foray into the worlds of Alphas and Omegas (and possible mpreg) and I was surprised to find I loved it. The Alpha and Omega dynamics hooked me from the start and I was interested to see where they would go. I liked Mateo’s sassiness and hopeless romanticism that he would find his destined mate, and he does! I liked sweet, innocent, Father Lance. He was a virgin priest trying to do the right thing but had no hopes of resisting Mateo – ensuring sexy times 🔥.
Each character endeared me to them and I found the whole world intriguing, so much so, now I need to read the rest of the Vale Valley series. I’m still not entirely sure I understand the alpha and omega elements outside of shifters and I’ve got to admit I kind of kept expecting Lance and Mateo to shift into something. Regardless, this was a great book to wet my appetite for the world of Alphas and Omegas and even Mpreg. I never thought I’d like that but now I’m intrigued, thanks Micheal for opening this world up to me!
This was a great story and I look forward to more like it!
