I own an e-copy of this book.

Book Synopsis:

Council threats and Renata’s deadly attack leave the Vegas pack scrambling to regroup…

Heartbroken over the death of her fiancé and tortured by a voice in her mind that’s haunted her since childhood, Sarah McLain learns her true ancestry after attending her best friend Margaret’s wedding. Can the pack save Sarah from the darkness that threatens to overwhelm her? Or will the wolf inside drive her over the edge before they can show her being a supernatural being is a good thing?

Chris Michaels is in charge of training the new latent werewolves at the O’Hearn mountain inn, now known as Woodhaven. His focus is tested when he finds out the beautiful but sad redhead, Sarah McLain, is his trainee. The connection he feels to her is strong but not magickal, and his wolf claims it foolish to listen to his human instincts. Can Chris heal her broken heart in time, or will he lose the woman he knows is perfect for him.

My Review:

This series continues to deliver! Much of this book was spent outside of Vegas and we learned quite  a bit about the history of shifters, how they originated and such. Sarah was half human and like us needed to be filled in on all the details.  I’m so glad that the author took this approach and shared more about this interesting world she created.

I thought much of Sarah’s reaction to all this and her inner wolf was pretty authentic as well as heart wrenching.  I really felt for her as she struggled to deal with this new life and knowledge.  I thought that Chris was a good match for her, even if I wanted to smack him a couple of times…  Being such a short book of course there was the insta-love/mating, but this is pretty common in paranormals.

Sam’s mom, Renata, is still there causing trouble for the shifters in America.  I am really looking forward to reading how they bring her down.  There was some introduction to new shifters with mixed heritage and it looks like we will be returning to the original family for the next story.   It looks like there is a fifth book, but it isn’t available for Nook.  While I really want to continue the story after #4, I don’t want to buy it from Amazon…  Hopefully it will be available at B&N and I won’t have to say good-bye to this world.
