All she had wanted was one night of mind-blowing memories to recall when she went back to her staid, boring life. Well, Sophie Briggs got that and a whole lot more; according to the little blue line on both of those bloody sticks, anyway. Now, the question is whether she raises the baby on her own or contacts the scrumptious man who helped to create it.
Being Pack Alpha isn’t the easiest of jobs, but the loneliness of living without one’s True Mate is even harder. Artemais Rutledge has spent many years looking for his and is positive he’s found her in Sophie. Now all he has to do is find her and convince her of this.
I found this to be a bit different style of werewolf story in that it was based almost upon a religion of sorts, which made it a totally intriguing concept to ponder. I loved the strong women, gentle yet savage if necessary men, and the entire feeling of family which permeated this story and made it an absolute treat to read. I’m looking forward to reading more in this series and watching the developments with interest. I have a feeling I won’t be disappointed.
