Hello and welcome!
It has been a few years since the series started and I along with the many fans of the Elven world have been emotionally connected to one character or another, cheered with each triumph and wept at each loss they suffered.
One thing that stayed constant is their absolute love for their Life Mates and this is my theme for the next 6 weeks, sharing the bonding scenes in each book.
And to start at the beginning… book 1 is…
There are two couples bonding in this book.
DAROTH King of the Light Elves, a powerful seer mated to C’LIANDRA, a powerful seer herself…
As C’Liandra stepped forth Daroth beamed at her his face full of love and pride. He held out his hands as she walked up to him and placed her hands into his. Her eyes never once left his.
“C’Liandra, my Life Mate.” His voice was strong.
“Daroth, he for whom I have waited all my life.” C’Liandra almost sounded breathless and her hands trembled in his.
“Would you wish to speak the words of binding now before all who are assembled before us, or would you wish to wait pending a period of courtship as is your right?”
“We have our entire lives for you to pay court to me my love. I would be yours in all ways from this moment on, if this is also your wish.”
“It is my fondest dream. I shall speak the words of bonding. C’Liandra my Life Mate; my love, light of my soul, I am yours.”
“Daroth, my Life Mate, I am yours.” C’Liandra replied.
“As you are mine, I am yours. We are one.” Daroth then sealed the declaration with a kiss.
The crowd cheered as Daroth drew her into his embrace and as she took her place at his side.
GABRIEL EAGLE CLAW, High Lord General of the Elven Combined Forces mated to EDEN, a powerful Tratchar (A special title held by Elves of extreme power focused on the health and welfare of the Great Guardian and the Sentinel Trees of the Elven Empire.)
… skipping the parts that are not PG, you’ll have to read the book to get the whole scene 😉
“…….Are you mine?”
“Yes,” Eden hissed, her mind was a jumble of emotion.
“I want to hear you say it Eden. Say the words Eden. You’re mine.”
“You’re mine,” Eden rasped out and Gabriel ran his tongue over her ……. as she gave a throaty cry and begged. “Gabriel, please. I need you Gabriel. Please.”
“I need the words Eden,” he urged her and he worked his way back up her body. …..
“I am yours, my Eden. You are mine.” Gabriel repeated the words of binding.
Eden’s eyes met his and all he could see was need,……. she cried aloud. “Gabriel! I am yours. You are mine. You are mine, Gabriel.”
“As our bodies join my love, we become one in body and Soul, in mind, spirit and heart.”

2nd book is
MARIOUS EAGLECLAW, Diplomat of the Light Elven Kingdom mated to TAMARAK, a Fletching, guardian to the birds…
“Come, join me.” Daroth held out his hands to Marious and Tamarak as everyone gathered around them in a circle.
“This is your moment, your dream and hearts desire. Here, beneath the light of the full moon you will reaffirm your bond, surrounded by the light and love of your family.”
Daroth joined their hands together and went to stand amongst the others that formed the circle about them.
Marious took Tamarak’s hands in his and looked deep into her eyes. They were shining a brilliant green, filled with love and happiness and he smiled as he spoke.
“Tam, you are mine.”
In a sure but silvery soft voice, Tamarak repeated the beginning of her vow.
“Marious, you are mine.”
“Tam, I am yours.”
“Marious, I am yours.”
Together they finished. “Together, we are one. Forever.”
There, in the family estate gardens, amidst the light of the full moon and Elven magic, surrounded by beauty and majesty, Elven voices raised in song. Those who had attended the small ceremony were serenading them. Marious took his Life Mate into his arms and kissed her.
As the couple parted, a hoot of an owl was heard, followed by another in answer, and two white snow owls glided out of the night to land on Marious and Tamarak’s shoulders. To Tamarak, that was the crowning touch. Confirmation that it was a joining that had been meant to be, and the acceptance of her mate by those she had lived her life with.”
