Back of Book:
Who's been sleeping in the Alpha's bed?
Exiled from his pack by his father, Brice Walker has secretly come home to visit his ailing grandmother only to discover a human and very desirable female sleeping in his bed. Their attraction is instant. But his new bed buddy seems determined to resist his Southern charm and Alpha allure.
For Brice, fiercely independent Cassie not only represents a chance to build a new life in Walker's Run but is also his one true mate. Cassie's reluctance dissolves when a rogue shifter kidnaps her, and now she and Brice must work together to save his pack. But once she witnesses the savagery of wolfan justice, can Cassie accept Brice as man, beast and her true love?
Oh, wow. I'm only at 45% but the drama and sexual tension has been through the roof. There is an authoritative father, a scheming uncle, and two women. One he calls Sunshine who is from the wrong side of the tracks but smells like sunshine after a terrible storm and another he never wants to see again after the last stunt she pulled. Too bad she's in town and reserved the Honeymoon suite for them. And to top it all off, Granny died at the beginning of the book but we haven't gone to her funeral yet.
First kisses are fantastic
He tasted like a storybook Christmas, sparkly, exciting and overwhelmingly wonderful.
You expect danger when the kidnapping is mentioned on the back cover. You even expect some when you meet Victoria (the second woman) but other danger shows up that had me holding my breath. And Victoria proves the saying that beauty is skin deep.
Usually I can stop and write some then read some more but this time there were only the three breaks. I just got sucked into the story. I should mention that the sexual tension gets hotter before exploding.
I love that while paranormal stories don't all follow the same rules, they generally agree that if something smells rotten, it is rotten.
