Rook heads to South America and finds his hands full with bringing the Pride out of the dark ages that Tomas had kept it in for years under his malicious ruling. He reunites with a few old friends and discovers a dark and twisted world he never knew existed behind the closed doors of the Alpha’s house. With the help of old military buddy Jonah he guides the Pride onto the path of a happy and fruitful living.
Fate has other plans when Rook is blindsided with the fact that his true mate had been kept in the clutches of the former Alpha. Locked behind doors and used as an object to be shared rather than respected and revered as all female shifters should be.
Will he be able to cull the evil from the Pride and make it safe enough for Casey to lead without fear? Will he be able to help his mate heal from the hell she has been put through and coax her cat to come out and play?
Beautifully written story with a great message. I could not put this down and read it in one sitting. In Mack, we learn that Rook used to be Casey’s protector and they are reunited within the pack. Casey is now the first Alpha Female and is the Alpha of the Pride in South America. Rook is one of her most trusted friends and he is sent to the Pride to check things out and see exactly how bad things are before Casey goes down. Rook is faced with many evils and keeps uncovering the ways this pride has lived for so long under the rule of Tomas, the previous Alpha and Casey’s father. He finds a harem of women and their cubs that Tomas kept to himself or gave out as favors to others. The way these women and children lived are horrible. And the village….well it is no better. Rook and Casey have their work cut out for them. In the midst of this Rook has found his mate, but Jasmine has seen many bad days and feels she is broken. Their love is blooming and the cats are ready to play! There are many new characters that are introduced and I am looking forward to hearing their stories as well. Love can conquer all, but this is a great twist on the shifters we have come to know.
