Colt is on a mission that turns deadly when he stumbles onto a she-wolf trying to steal his horse.
In the chaos of a vampire attack, Belle Beaumont escapes the Grey Wolf compound only to stumble upon the High Commander. When a vampire attacks and he is wounded their story begins.
For me this story was stronger than the first, in part because I was already comfortable with the world Ballenger had set up in book one, allowing this story to focus on the characters, relationships, and some wicked battles involving Lucas and the Wild Eight.
Both Belle and Colt carry burdens. She longs to belong to a pack; he is ashamed of his past and determined to honor those who raised him. Belle is a doctor, and perfect for Colt as she can see beneath Colt’s brazen exterior. Their romance begins with deals and arrangements and ultimately tugged at my heartstrings.
Secondary characters and the pack added to this story giving it depth and allowed me to feel a part of something. I loved the interaction with the horses, who have personalities of their own. The females of Grey Wolf are head-strong and seeing them tease and torment the alphas was fun. We see more of Wes and Naomi and get developments there. The more I learn of Maverick their leader, the more I respect him.
A little something or should I say sizzle happened between the pack leader’s sister and a rogue wolf… I sensed something and I am hoping the author is dropping a hint of things to come! This review was originally posted at Caffeinated Reviewer
