#WOTR19Attending #Review #NovusPack #Shifter

Sometimes, Goodbye is the Only Way 

Raider Black, Leader of the Novus Pack, will do anything for his people. His word is his bond no matter the sacrifice. Novus has always come first. 

Theodora Morrissey is a gift from The Goddess to the Lycan world. It doesn’t take someone with her psychic abilities to see that her future is in jeopardy. 

When Theo is discovered bloodied, beaten, violated, and broken, Black must find a way for her to be healed or his dream for their future will be destroyed
Feel Me is Book two of the Novus pack.  We know that Theo and Black are together, but she also knows that its not forever because of two things: 1 she’s human and has a finite life span and Black is immortal. 2: At some point in the future Black is to be mated to a princess from another pack.
Yes, the contract to marry kills her but it was before she was in the picture and it is for the good of the Novus Pack.
Black hates that he has the contract, but he knows he and Theo may have many happy years together before his intended is ready, heck it may not even happen in Theo’s lifetime.
However in the real world fate is a bitch and it is time.
Be prepare to ball you eyes out people, have tissues and wine on hand because you will need it. M. Jayne made me feel all the feels with this one.
So much happens in this story that saying anything well be a spoiler for someone who want to read it for themselves.   Yes it’s only a story, but just like in real life sometimes you gotta get through the bad to get to the good and also yes there is A LOT of bad but there is also A LOT of good.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU my Twinsie friends for turning me onto M. Jayne and I will be waiting on pins and needles for the next book

She’s worked retail, recorded hearings in a Federal Courtroom, worked behind the scenes with security at a casino and currently she is living her dream writing Romance.

#WOTR19Attending #Review #Shifter #NovusPack – See Me by M. Jayne/Melanie Jayne

Throughout history, The Lady, Goddess of the Lycan world, has gifted werewolf packs with humans who carry her mark. Theodora Morrissey’s plans to return to college for her graduate degree are ended when she is awakened by an otherworldly voice on a rarely used airstrip in Nebraska. Injured and disoriented, she has no idea the discoloration on her back has marked her as a Seer, and that she is now a possession—and the prisoner—of the Novus Pack of Lycans. 

To the Novus pack, the word of their leader, their Laird, is the law. With compelling gray eyes and long dark hair, Raider Black rules his pack with intelligence and ruthlessness. To cement the security of his pack, Black has committed to mate another Packleader’s daughter. But he’s finding it impossible to fight his attraction to the pack’s alluring new Seer, claiming her as his own. 

Sweet, fearless, and unintentionally funny, Theo upends Black’s world and pushes the boundaries of his rules. How far is Black willing to go, and what will he sacrifice, to save both his pack and the human Seer who’s found a way not only into his bed, but his heart?
So as a reader I sometimes get stuck on what to read next and nothing sounds good, this is why I’m glad my friends are readers too.  See sometimes we read the same authors, but there are other times that they can off up a new author that I haven’t read and this is one of these times.
While searching for someone to read  some of the other Twinsie pointed me in the direction of M. Jayne and her Novus pack.
Holy heck am i glad for friends after starting this series.  First of all I love how every shifter author has their own rules for shifters and while some are the same there are differences too.
Theodora Morrissey is left beaten and frozen on a airstrip runway and is no longer just a “human” when she awakes, she is now a Seer and marked by The Lady.
Raider Black is the Novus pack leader, for him Novus comes first above everything and he will do whatever he has to do to make sure that it stays that way,
OMG, the heat that these two have is off the charts first of all and second Theodora is having to learn about her new life.  Her place is with the pack, she is theirs, well Black’s, and there is no going back to her old life.
She has all these things that she has to learn, about the pack, about shifters, about what The Lady has gifted her and how to use her gifts for the good of the pack.  While she has been marked which is a honor, she is also just human so not as good as a wolf.
Black and Theodora fight the pull between them for a while and it is hot watching said pull, its also hot watching them when they stop fighting.
Not only is the book hot, but it has its humorous moments too.  Along with the hot and funny are some tearjerking moments, so be prepared to laugh, cry, and be turned on all with one book. LOL!!

#NewRelease #Review #TrueMates #Shifter A Witch in Time:True Mates Generations Book 4 by Alicia Montgomery

When three strangers appear at his doorstep, Lord Reed Townsend, Duke of Huntington, knows something is not quite right. And it’s not just because his wolf immediately recognizes Elise Henney as his True Mate. But the cold, unfeeling Alpha doesn’t want to risk his heart again, despite the fact that his wolf is urging him to claim their mate. He ignores his instincts, hoping that the desire and longing he feels for the young American miss would eventually go away.

Transported from modern day New York to Regency England, wolf shifter Elise Henney and her companions deduce that their only way home lies with the London Alpha. But, Reed’s suspicious nature is a major hindrance, not to mention, his cold, unfeeling nature. Still, she can’t help but feel drawn to the broody duke, but he can never know who she really is or where she’s from.

Sparks fly despite their denial of their attraction to each other. But, Elise’s only way home relies on Reed’s fate, one she cannot change no matter what happens. Can they let history play out as it’s supposed to or will they defy time, in order to be together?
 I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book.


Welcome to True Mates Generations book 4 and after reading it I now want to watch Back to the Future!!!
That’s right a couple of the true mate kiddos travel accidentally back in time after a attack by the mages.
Elise Henney’s parents are the alphas of the San Francisco clan.  She and her mother are in New York for the new Alpa’s ascension.  Elise is a hybrid wolf/witch, she has never been able to control her powers so she wears gloves.  When the mages attack during the ceremony she uses her powers and she, Julianna Anderson, and Cross Jonasson are transported back in time to Regency  London.
Reed Townsend is about to become the alpha of London when these unfamiliar people save his nephew.
He is unsure of these new guest that he now has, he just knows that he is attracted to Elise and they are not telling the truth.
As always the chemistry between True Mates is off the charts!!  It’s crazy that Elise had to travel back in time to find her mate.
Of course we gotta deal with the mages, it wouldn’t be a True Mates story without them trying the screw thing up.
It was funny seeing 3 people from this time trying to fit in during that time period and Alicia Montgomery did a excellent job at making me feel that it was a smooth transaction be between time periods.
I’m excited to see who will be the next True Mate kiddo to find their mate and to see if they can defeat the mages once and for all.
Alicia Montgomery has always dreamed of becoming a romance novel writer. She started writing down her stories in now long-forgotten diaries and notebooks, never thinking that her dream would come true. After taking the well-worn path to a stable career, she is now plunging into the world of self-publishing.

Sexy shifters, billionaires, alpha males, and of course, strong, sexy female characters are her favorite to write. Alicia is a wanderer, along with her husband, they travel the world and have lived in various spots all over the world.

#WOTR19Attending, #CoverReveal, #PreOrder, #DomsofHerLife, #TheChase, #HeavenlyRising

One temptress. Two alphas. Hot pursuit.

The night Heavenly Young gave her innocence to Dr. Kenneth Beckman and Seth Cooper, her world was ripped apart by betrayal and tragedy. She leaves behind everything and everyone to fulfill a deathbed promise and start her life over. But her solitary quest forces her to face her past and question where her future truly lies—alone or in the arms of the two unforgettable men she loves?

After putting his heart on the line—something Seth swore he’d never do again—he’s devastated when Heavenly walks away from him and Beck. Hell-bent on reclaiming her, they chase her down and help her complete her solemn duty. But Heavenly is caught between independence and love, forcing him and Beck to make her a deal. She’ll give them total commitment for eight weeks. If she still wants her freedom after that, they’ll let her go—for good.

After Beck’s reckless mistake implodes the fragile bond he and Seth share with Heavenly, he’s determined to prove they can give her both the adventure she seeks and the devotion she craves. So the men devise a game to break down her barriers and bind her in bliss. But when their dreams are within reach, a demon from Beck’s long-forgotten past returns, bent on revenge that might cost him his life.

#NewRelease #Review #Contemporary Falling With You (Fractured Connections #3) by Carrie Ann Ryan

NYT bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan concludes a brand new series where second chances don’t come often, and overcoming an unexpected loss means breaking everything you knew.

The day I lost my best friend was the day I realized that I’d been living in the past. I’ve tried to find a way to heal, to mend that break. Somehow, I came through it partially whole. But I know I couldn’t have done that without Aiden Connolly.

The problem is, he once loved my best friend. And now she’s gone, and I refuse to be in that shadow, or worse, a replacement for someone we both loved.
 I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book.


This has really been one of the most heart wrenching series that I think that I have ever read, that being said I do so think that Carrie Ann Ryan has once again written a story that finds itself ripped from someone’s life.  As we know, and if you don’t I’ll tell you, that the couples in this series are dealing with the death of a friend and finding love after.  As they are doing this they are doing this with people that they have known since forever and the death of the friend brought them back together.
Sienna and Aiden have a very special relationship.  Sienna had a crush on Aiden as a teen, but nothing could come of it because he was her best friend Allison’s boyfriend.  Years later even after Allison and Aiden had been broken up nothing could come of it because she couldn’t talk to her about it because she was dead. 
However, the heart wants what it wants and to people coming together in love is a beautiful thing.  
Aiden and Sienna might just be my new favorite couple…….
Until the next Carrie Ann Ryan book that is.
Carrie Ann Ryan is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of contemporary and paranormal romance. Her works include the Montgomery Ink, Redwood Pack, Talon Pack, and Gallagher Brothers series, which have sold over 2.0 million books worldwide. She started writing while in graduate school for her advanced degree in chemistry and hasn’t stopped since. Carrie Ann has written over fifty novels and novellas with more in the works. When she’s not writing about bearded tattooed men or alpha wolves that need to find their mates, she’s reading as much as she can and exploring the world of baking and gourmet cooking

#WOTRAttending, #ComingSoon, #Review, #StandAlone, Broken Scars by JM Walker

Ruined. Tortured. Broken. 

What could have been the perfect childhood, turned into a hell that the devil himself would shy away from. I was forced to deal with an evil that would make the darkest of souls cringe. 

Lily Noel was scarred but beautiful. She was perfectly flawed and everything that I needed. 

Attraction bordered on obsession. 
Passion bordered on ecstasy. 
Addiction bordered on insanity. 

Nothing could get in the way of our love. 
Nothing…
 I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book.


Ok, so I am so sorry to report that I only sorta remembered Lucas.  I mean yes when we first met him as a side character I was curious, but unfortunately he slipped my mind with the other alpha’s of JM Walker’s mind grapes filling it.  That being said let me beg Walker’s forgiveness for forgetting him because man oh man i am so very happy that he got his own book.
Lucas and Lily’s story is sooo awesome, it’s like Reńee Zellweger says in Jerry Maguire “You complete me” and they so totally do!
Walker spills the tea on all that is Lucas and Lily.  Lucas had a horrible childhood and a not so hot early adulthood, the childhood nit of his own doing but the adulthood was all him learning to deal with his childhood.  Lily is the same, bad childhood and bad choices as a teen/early adult.
Their story is one of pulling yourself out of the muck and making yourself the person you and those that love you can be proud of.
Lucas’s story also shows us how people can have the same exact things happen to them and how they can turn out to be totally different people. 
I think Lucas and Lily are a story of Walker that I didn’t even know I was waiting for.  It also is a story of not letting the horrible things that happen, if they happen to you, define you.  You make your own path and God or whoever is in charge of the universe makes or perfect other half and brings them to us when we didn’t even know we were looking for them.
   

J.M. Walker is an Amazon bestselling author who recently hit USA Today with Wanted: An Outlaw Anthology. She loves all things books, pigs and lip gloss. She is happily married to the man who inspires all of her Heroes and continues to make her weak in the knees every single day.

#TwinsieKristiTop5, #WOTRAttendingAuthors, #Reviews, #Shifter, #Contemporary, #MC, #Vampire, #Cowboys.

Wow, can you believe we are halfway done with this year? I mean it’s crazy!!  Since we are at the halfway point we all know what that means!!! That’s right its time for Twinsie Kristi’s Top Five!! I’ve got a little bit of everything going on with my reading this year.  Out of everything that I have read so far its been really hard to pick my favorite reads, but did it.  I’ve picked for you a hottie cowboy, a kick butt female vamp, a heartbreaking contemporary, a shifter, and a MC Alpha!!!

Now a few of these ladies will be in attendance at WOTR so if you’re going check them out and if aren’t and your in the Peoria Illinois area on July 20th you should.  Not only do you get to met some authors and buy books, its for a great cause too!!!

So back to it, here it is in no order at all Twinsie Kristi’s Top 5.

Loss. Passion. Rage. Love.

It started the moment she left me.

Submission. Wrath. Savage. Resentment.

She rejected me when I needed her most.

My walls were up. My life was lonely. My world was dark. 
I opened up to her and gave her every piece of me only to have her rejection slap me in the face. I needed her. I wanted her. But hated her just the same. After years of giving myself to others, she falls back into my life when I least expected it. With so many years between us, we fell back into an easy routine. She was no longer the girl I had fallen in love with, but a woman who was running from her demons only to land in the arms of a monster…
 I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book.


So, having read the other books from the Hell’s Harlem Series I thought that I knew what Catch was gonna be about.  Hot MC guy on guy action with some sort of killing mixed it, along with a few scenes of the guys in church. Catch had the hots from Greyson, was in love with Trey so of course finally he’s gonna get him a Hot MC Man of his own right, but I guess he could of found him a hot civilization too, either way it was time for the hotness that is Catch to find is HEA.
Boy did Walker totally freak my mind grapes with introducing Sara.  That’s right I said Sara, a female for the man that I thought was gonna give us some hot MM love.
Sara isn’t just any plain ole female, nope, nope, nope!!!    SHE’S HIS FREAKING FIRST LOVE THAT BROKE HIS HEART!!!!  Ummm, ok I’m calm sorry for the yelling, but dang Walker are you trying to give me a heart attack here???!!!!!
Walker takes us on a awesome journey to the past  to show us why Catch and Sara were no more, what happened to Sara since leaving Catch.  Sara’s life has not been a easy one and she’s trying to change that,  seeing Catch again isn’t something that she thought was gonna happen.  You can not have a story with a past love coming back with a present and hopefully a future and Walker gives us the present with Catch helping Sara and maybe a glimpse into the future, I’m gonna zip my lips on that one though you have to read it for yourself!!!
P.s.  to those of you that have been reading Walker for a while our favorite Masochistic physiologist Santos!!!!!!  To those of you that are getting to see Dr. Santos for the first time here check out his book Beautiful Pain. 

 
From NYT bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan, comes a brand new series where second chances don’t come often, and overcoming an unexpected loss means breaking everything you knew.

I fell for Cameron Connolly at the wrong time. And when he left, I thought my life was over. But then, after the worst happened, I truly understood what that phrase meant. Now, he’s not ready for a second chance, and I’m not offering one. Though given that our families have been forced together after losing one of our own, I know there’s no turning back. Not this time. Not again. Not when it comes to Cameron.

~~

I never wanted to hurt Violet Knight, but there were reasons I had to leave all those years ago—not that she’d believe me if I told her what they were. I not only left her, I also left my foster brothers. Honestly, I didn’t want to come back to Denver to help run my father’s failing brewery. But when it comes to my brothers, I know I’ll find a way to make it work. Perhaps I’ll even earn Violet’s forgiveness and face the connection we both thought long forgotten in the process. Because I wanted her then, but now I know I need her. I just hope she needs me.
 I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book


I love starting a new series, especially one by a favorite author. Why you ask, because it’s like coming into a new group of friends, but of people that you already know but now you get to really know them and come to love them.
In Breaking Without You we have Violet Knight and we meet Cameron Connolly.  Violet we have briefly met before as she is Mace’s sister from Fallen Ink: Montgomery Ink Colorado Springs Book 1.
This story is a heartbreaker for sure, what Violet and her tribe are going through is one of the toughest things a group of friends can go through.  Suicide is something that is very prevalent in the world today and when it happens it is awful and when it is someone that is close to you it’s even more devastating.
That is what brings Violet and Cameron into each other’s life’s…….. again.
See not only is this a love story, it’s a second chance love story and those are always good.
The chemistry between them is off the charts, but that was never the problem for them when they were together in college.  No the problem was when Cameron just left without a word or reason.
I love that Ryan always gives us true life in her stories.  From how Violet and her friends are coping with their grief, to Cameron and his brothers trying to come together again after years apart, to the why of Cameron leaving.  All of it is vey real life things that could happen to and does happen to every day people.  
Also, what I love about her writing is that if you haven’t read the series that a new series has spun off of it doesn’t matter, you won’t be lost because you can read them as stand alones. A warning though, you won’t want too if you are anything think me you gotta know everything and everyone so like Pokèmon you gotta get them all. Lol
I can’t wait to see more of this series, it’s gonna be a good one.
When Killian Brody showed up at Dallas Faircloth’s work with news that her half-brother might die without her help, she never expected the oldest and sexiest Brody to kidnap her to ensure her cooperation.

The scandalous affair between Dallas’s mother and Killian’s father made everything inside Dallas revolt at the Brody name. It was because of a Brody her life had been left in ruins at the age of eight, and she’d had to rebuild all on her own. She hatedthe Brodys. Which was too bad, really. Killian Brody was take-charge, arrogant and so damn sexy she would have climbed him like a tree if it weren’t for that last name of his.

Her weak-willed mother had proven to her that the men in the Brody family were as addictive as any drug, and Dallas didn’t want to get hooked. But when Killian turns his sights on her and makes her believe she’s his greatest weakness, she has a choice—play it safe, or dive in headfirst and risk falling in love with a Brody man. (
 I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book.
Welcome back to Bitterhorn Texas and say HELLO hottie to the oldest Brody brother Killian.
Ok, somethings to know about Killian: number 1 he’s a man that always gets what he wants no matter what it is. Number 2; he  has a tendency to act without thinking whether this is by action or saying something, and number 3, the man is a protector which means sometimes he does number two because of this. 
Dallas Faircloth is a woman who hates the Brody name and never thought she would see Bitterhorn again.  Why you ask? Simple, because her mother and Killian’s father had a affair which lead to a child, which lead to the absolute destruction of two families and the lives of 5 children as they knew it.
Oh my, the heat between these two I can feel all the way from Texas to my house in KY!!!!  
The relationship between these two in the beginning is rough to say the least, after all he did “kidnap” her and bring her back to Bitterhorn.  She was coming back on her own but he didn’t know that when he grabbed her.  See here’s the thing, the half brother that they share was hurt and no one was a match but her, so even though she was coming back to help the little brother he didn’t know that so it was technically kidnapping but not really. LOL
When they stop fighting and start talking they see how much they have in common, neither lived the life the other thought they did growing up, and they start having feelings for each other.
Gail has done another awesome job at showing yes alpha men can be for lack of a better word a**holes, but they have feelings too and maybe can turn that part of themselves off for the love of a woman that will stand of to that and show them that they can show their softer side to the world.
The last Brody brother is going to be the baby Des, he’s going to be a doozy and I can’t wait to see the woman who claims him.
Ada Carlisle never knew anything outside the gates of her clan, but she isn’t oblivious to why the men were there to touch her. When she is put up for sale to the highest bidder, she flees her home clan for a chance at survival. After traveling for weeks, her bear calls to build a den for the winter months. Once spring arrives, she wakes scared and alone on the land of three male grizzlies. 

The spring mating season comes with the discovery of a female bear shifter on the Morgan’s land. Rex Morgan knows immediately Ada Carlisle is to be his mate, but she’s too weak to complete the mating. When it is revealed her clan intended to sell her to a male in Montana, the Morgan brothers vow to take down the leader of the O’Kelly clan and bring justice to the male who paid for her hand. 
Like shifters? Like bear shifters? Well you have come to the right book!!
Mating Instinct is book two in Theresa Hissong’s Morgan Clan series and it’s about to get real for the Morgan Brothers with this one.
A little information before we start though.  If you are new to Hissong’s shifters there is a few things you need to know:  Mates are found first by smell, then by touch.  Once a female has found her mate and simply touched him all other touches by any male but her mate burn.  Mates are sacred.  For bear shifters there is nothing more that the male wants then to take care and adore his mate once she has been found.  Trying to force a mating on a female is wrong and finally any harm done to any female shifter or cub is to be taken care of by shifter law rather than human law.
Rex Morgan is the second of the Morgan brothers.  His older brother just found his mate and is finally settled.  It’s mating season again and he and his youngest brother are feeling the mating pull, but haven’t found their mates yet.
now, bear shifters are similar to the animal brethren in that they are not much are packs and they like to hibernate.
Rex comes upon a scent that he doesn’t recognize while out in the woods on their property and there he finds Ada.
Ada has ran away from her clan and has been hibernating on The Morgan’s land.
When Ada tells the reason why she ran things get real.
We get to see two mates find each other, shifter justice, and the coming together of a clan in this story.  If I say anything more it will ruin it for you.  Just know that love wins and justice gets served in the end.  
Hissong’s shifters are awesome stories and Rex and Ada’s story has certainly done them justice.  I can not wait for Gunner’s story and to see more of the Shaw pride.

Nicole Callahan, mate to fierce and brooding VC Warrior Damon DeMasters, has been trying to find her place in his world. Without a doubt, it’s been interesting, but she believes there’s a lot more she can offer the children she spent so much of her human life fighting for. 

The Mate series delves into the kickass world of the Warriors’ mates and how united, they can make a difference—just like their badass Protectors. Follow along to see how these exceptional women’s newfound freedom affect those around them and which Warrior may or may not support their feisty independent mate’s new and exciting path.

Look out VC Warriors the Warriorettes are coming!!!! Lol!!!
Nicole is the first book in the VC Warrior Mates series and oh boy these ladies  love their alpha mates, but they aren’t taking it anymore!!!
Nicole heads back to work for Mitch are Social Services, without talking to Damon about it; hee, hee, hee, and does she have a doozy of a first day back.
First off I absolutely love that we are going to get more Warriors. Secondly, that we are going to get more from the women’s POV now that they have mated their men it’s going to be great.  If you have read the VC Warrior series you know that the Warriors are all alpha males that do not want their mates hurt in any way and they will say and do anything to keep it that way no matter how caveman it may seem.
Also, we know that these women are all very strong women; they also knew how their men were when they mated them, but no couple stays the same you either grow or crumble under the pressure and THAT is what we are going to see in this series.
Who will grow? Who will crumble? Please baby Jesus no one crumble, we will have to just see.
Our favorite Warriors and now Warriorettes have a new enemy too, one that we have never seen from Gabelman before and I think that it’s going be epic.
I can’t wait to see where we go next and fingers crossed none of our favorite couples crumble, don’t worry though if Jill and Slade crumble I’ll be there to console him. LOL

#WOTRAttending, #Review, #ComingSoon, #BDSM. Sabrina’s Seduction (Love Strictly Tested Book 2) by Anna Hague

Desperate to understand my best friend’s choice to be a submissive to her Dom husband, I decide to study BDSM for my Master’s thesis in Sociology. The very thought of giving up control terrifies me…until my research takes me to a “play party” and I witness Cameron Terry spanking a sub. The striking Dominant’s unassuming power mesmerizes me, exciting me in ways I’ve never known possible while my sheltered and strict upbringing tells me this new desire is immoral. But when at last I plead for what I crave, I struggle on the edge of fear and bliss. Can I change who I’ve always believed myself to be?

 I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book.

Welcome to book 2 of Anna Hague’s Love Strictly Tested series.  The book picks up right were the first left off except this time the story is about Emma aka “Angel’s” bff Sabrina.

Sabrina decides to do her Master Thesis on BDSM to better understand her bff and to make up to her and her husband about misjudging the lifestyle so quickly.

Poor Sabrina.  I don’t think I have ever seen someone so repressed as her.  She is a 30 year old woman that is basically scared of her own shadow and everything makes the woman throw up.  However as she learns about the lifestyle she is introduced to Cameron Terry.  We’ve met Cameron before in Angel’s book, he is Jordan Angel’s husband nemesis.

As I was saying, as she learns about the lifestyle she also learns about herself.  

Hague, has done a amazing job taking a repressed woman and making her blossom into someone almost completely different fans she has done that with the help of a well written male character in Cameron.  He helps Sabrina find that woman that she has hidden deep within herself.

Also, as we read about Sabrina and Cameron, we also see glimpses of Angel and Jordan and how they find out the story that she told the reporter in book 1, will come back to bite them in the butt.

After the ending that I just read i cant wait to see what happens in book 3.

From the moment he was born, his future was already set: to be Alpha of the most powerful Lycan clan in the world. He would do anything to protect his clan and keep their existence a secret. But when a gorgeous,*human* police detective accuses him of murder, his life is turned upside-down and he can’t ignore her or the passion she stirs up in him and his wolf.

But, she knows he’s hiding something and solving this particular puzzle both scares and thrills her.

Unable to resist each other, they play a dangerous cat-and-mouse game that only brings them closer together and sparks the flames of their desire. When her life is threatened, he knew he would burn the world down to protect her. But, she was still human and not to be trusted.

The True Mates Generations Series is back with Lucas’s book.
Lucas Anderson is the next Alpha of New York and CEO of the Fenrir Corporation.  Sophia Selinofoto is a human detective of the NYPD.
Parts of this story coincided with book 2 which is Lucas’s twin sister’s book so you get a little bit of a view of what happened in those scenes from his point of view which is cool.
Lucas is unlike the other alpha’s in that he changed at a young age due to seeing his sister hurt and  because of that the blood lust caused him to shift.  He still has problems sometimes when he sees someone he loves being hurt and his wolf takes over causing a shift that he has no control over and it can make him very dangerous when he goes through a shift like that.
Sophia is called to the Blood Moon night club due to a disturbance and sees him after such a shift.
What happens next is fate putting them into each other’s path by her investigating a murder of a man that has ties to him and she can’t help but look more closely into him.
Lucas doesn’t want anything to do with the human, but his wolf is always calm around her.  When she realizes that he is not who she’s looking for and he realizes that maybe his wolf is right to want her things change.
Montgomery does a great job at showing us how hard it is to still  be a woman in what is still considered to be a man’s field of work and how hard it is to still to the right thing sometimes.  She also does a wonder job at showing us how hard Lucas works to control his wolf when it gets agitated and wants it to shift.
I can not wait to see what happens next after the ending that she wrote to this story either because it was a totally out of nowhere.
