RELEASE DATE: January 16th, 2017
A dangerous lone wolf is intent on destroying the beginnings of a pack and when Connor is attacked, and near death, there is only one thing that can save him. A wolf shifter’s bite.
After a hate crime leaves one of them near dead, Veterinarian Josh Nolan and Cop Connor Vincent are starting a new life in Black Creek, a remote town on the edge of the Green Mountains range, Vermont.
Josh is taking over his grandfather’s practice, and Connor starts a new position with the local sheriff’s office.
When Connor becomes curious about unsolved crimes going back fifty years he can’t know the kind of secrets he begins to unearth. Or the danger that he puts himself and Josh in.
While I was reading the first part of this story I have to admit feeling incredibly lost. I kept thinking maybe I missed a book, but no. I didn’t. This felt like it started right in the middle of a series. The first part was a bit scattered for me. I think more background into Josh and Connor’s relationship would have helped immensely. I got and felt the passion this couple had for each other but the emotional connection lacked for me. I’ve read and loved other stories by this author but unfortunately this was not one of my favorites.
After unspeakable violence shatters their happiness, Josh and Connor decide to relocate. A small, quieter town will hopefully prove safer for this couple.
Connor is happy with Josh and the new life they’re building but there’s just something not quite right in the town of Black Creek.
After another life and death situation, Connor finds himself not feeling quite right. All of his senses are enhanced and things don’t feel quite right.
Connor learns that in order to save his life he had to be changed into a wolf shifter. Needless to say this is quite a shock for Connor and for Josh.
But the couple and town have bigger problems. There’s a homicidal wolf shifter and the hunt and it seems like no one can stop him from killing again.
Like I mentioned this one was just ok for me. Felt not quite finished. But solid writing like I’ve come to appreciate with this author.
