Wolf shifter Nathan Caldwell likes things casual when it comes to women, keeping them at arm’s length and never letting them get too close. So, when he meets the one, the mate his animal has chosen, he gets the surprise of his life when she rejects him.
Geologist Dr. Violet Robichaux is focused on her career and science. She keeps a tight reign on her emotions and her tiger, so when her animal chooses the foul-mouthed and rude wolf as her mate, she quickly shuts that down. Her stay in Blackstone is temporary, after all, and she can’t let her tiger or her heart make her decisions. But there’s another reason she can’t stay, one that’s a matter of life and death.
When danger brings them closer together, Violet and Nathan must face the odds to help a friend in need. They risk their lives to do the right thing, but also grow closer. Can Nathan convince Violet they’re meant to be together or will she resist the growing attraction so she can leave Blackstone with her heart intact
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book
And another one bites the dust!!! Lol!! I think it’s funny that Montgomery’s men always seem to find their mates when they least expect it, it’s even funnier when the mate basically say “Thanks, but no thanks”.
This is Nathan and Violet’s story.
Nathan Caldwell is the Chief Engineer at Blackstone Mines, Dr. Violet Robichaux is the new temporary geologist at Blackstone Mines.
They both get one whiff of each other and instantly know they are mates. Violet immediately says “ Nope, can’t have a mate right now sorry” and Nathan says “ she doesn’t want me, well I don’t want her either. I have so many women I don’t need a mate”.
OMG, so much funny goes on with the, wanna mate don’t wanna mate stuff that goes on with Nathan and Violet.
Both are stubborn, both really want to mate, however while Violet has a reason why and just can’t share her secrets; Nathan’s reason is just stupid male pride.
While they deal with the to mate or not to mate thing, they also stumble into shifters being kidnapped and used as lab rats.
When they both sit down and really talk together, they find out that they really do want the same thing and that is each other. I can’t wait until the next Blackstone book I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it’s Luke, that’s lion is gonna be a handful and needs one heck of a mate beside him.
