A decade in captivity tore away all hope.
But Margery never lost her resolve to help the sick. The village she’d hoped to serve as banfasa, caring for the ill and injured, is long gone. Humans captured the young shifters and killed the adults. Finally rescued, she has a chance at her dreams—at least for meaningful work. With her leg crippled and her face scarred, she knows she has no hope of ever finding love.
Tynan is ready to find their mate.
After years away from his littermate as a police officer among humans, Tynan is finally home, a beta in the wolf pack, and serving his people as a law officer. Assigned as Margery’s mentor in the pack, he patiently works to earn the skittish little wolf’s trust. Her captivity has left her with problems, including a fear of uniforms. But he’s a fixer at heart—and he’s starting to want more from the gentle female than just friendship.
Donal has no intention of making a family.
Separated from his littermate for years, Donal has remained unmated, devoting his energies to healing. Believing ugly rumors about their new neighbor—a banfasa—he won’t have her in his clinic or his life—no matter what his newly returned brother wants.
But a feral shifter’s attack on Tynan shows Margery in a whole different light. She’s levelheaded, compassionate, sweet—and far too appealing. What male could resist her?
But even as the brothers work to win their mate, cruel forces move to crush their entire clan.
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
I seriously LOVE this series. I love how the series is ever evolving. The addition of the Bad guys who are really bad guys was great reading.
When the book starts, we know Margery has had it rough. To see her fear the good guys saving her but also worry for the young and the hurt lets you see inside her soul. She is blessed with the Mothers Goodness. She truly is a healer in her own right.
When we see her striking out on her own after realizing her new pack was not the right pack for her or any woman, it was great to see her embrace her new life in the Zeb and Shay and Alec and Colum. Plus, revisiting with the old pack pairings is always fun times.
Littlermates and total opposites Donal and Tynan are happy to finally be together again after 10 years. They know they are going to live their life together and Tynan hopes take a mate together. Donal is not so into the whole mate thing. He can’t imagine any women keeping his attention for that long. Plus, all the women are more interested in his title vs the man.
The men see Margery, and both are interested. Unfortunately, Donal takes the word of the wrong people and won’t give her the time of day. Tynan is not as interested in others words and falls head over heals for the stubborn and unsure wolf. When he makes sure to be her mentor, he helps her overcome some deep scars.
As the novel continues, we see Donal realize what an idiot he is and run headfirst into a time with Margery. Tynan and her bond is strong and now she is bonding with the town healer as well.
We see some of her past come into play, more bad guys come, stupid males being stupid, and jealous women causing issues.
I admit I really want a book for Oliver. Margery’s brother seems so lost a good HEA could totally do him well!!

I met my dearheart when vacationing in the Caribbean. Now I won’t say it was love at first sight. Actually since he stood over me, enjoying the view down my swimsuit top, I might have been a tad peeved—as well as attracted. But although we were together less than two days and lived on opposite sides of the country, love can’t be corralled by time or space.
We’ve now been married for many, many years. (And he still looks down my swimsuit tops.)
Nowadays, I live in the west with this obnoxious, beloved husband and a seventy-pound lap-puppy. I’m a gardener, and I love nurturing small plants until they’re big and healthy and productive…and ripping defenseless weeds out by the roots when I’m angry. I enjoy thunderstorms, collecting eggs from the chickens, and visiting the local brewery for the darkest, maltiest beer on tap. My favorite way to spend an evening is curled up on a couch next to the master of my heart, watching the fire, reading, and…well…if you’re reading my books, you obviously know what else happens in front of fires.
