Felicia ran from her pack and their harsh treatment of her, the unworthy mongrel. She found a life among humans in Afghanistan. Using her nursing skills she was able to help many people. Her werewolf genes allowed her to go into dangerous situations without having to worry about injuries that would kill a mere human. After two years her contract has ended and now she finds herself returning home with few options of where to go.
Alaric has spent the past two years worried about Felicia. He has kept tabs on her, always known her whereabouts and how she was doing. After a while the tabs weren’t enough. That’s when he started emailing her. Alaric has known for too long that Felicia was his mate. He knows that she doesn’t seem to notice this herself. What’s a wolf to do? He starts emailing her flirty emails and he continues to increase the intensity of his flirtiness. He’s assuming this will let her know his feelings and intentions…wrong.
Alaric is not allowed any peace in his courtship of Felicia. They are immediately stalked and attacked. Felicia fears that it is repercussions from her abandoning her old pack. Alaric fears that it is more inner turmoil from the recent killing of an Alpha and the consolidations of a pack along with an important treaty that is about to take place. Neither one of them could have ever imagined what the attacks were really all about.
I absolutely loved Alaric! He was so different from the typical werewolf male who is after his mate. He try’s for subtly. He doesn’t go Neanderthal. He really wants this to be an easy going process. The problem is she’s trying to avoid pack life and not telling anyone that she is returning home. Felicia has been treated cruelly by pack mates and has never known her true worth amongst a pack. This makes Alaric’s pursuit of Felicia all the more intense.
Alaric and Felicia are wonderful characters to read. Alaric is such a caring male. Felicia is kind and compassionate. Even though she’s had a rough life she never comes off as that female with little self-esteem who’s enjoying her own private pity party. She figured out early on that if she needed something she had to get it herself, thus she can take care of herself. Felicia was a great strong female heroine to read.
Go buy it, now!
