Cole Andrews, biologist by trade and werewolf by blood, is tired of being alone. He and his two brothers live in the large Victorian home that had belonged to their parents. He’s always wanted to find his mate and start a family. Now that he’s in his thirties, he’s starting to give up hope. He’s already seen all of the women available in his small town of Ashton Grove and so far none of them are “the one.”
Marin Thomas is fleeing for her life. After being abducted and held hostage, she is determined to escape the maniac once and for all. Stealing his car, she travels as far and as fast as she can – until a car accident lands her in some woods near Ashton Grove, Georgia. Fighting for her very life, she finds herself begging a wolf for help.
Is Marin the mate that Cole has been waiting for? Or will she end up with one of his brothers? One sniff tells him that she belongs to his pack. The only question that remains is who will win her heart?
Will she chose Cole as her mate or will Gabrielle’s gentle touch and gorgeous eyes steal her heart? Can the brothers stop Stephan before he kills Marin?
Jessica Coulter Smith really has outdone herself with this book. I love paranormals and recently began to like werewolf romances. The plots and scenes are beautifully written. The love that forms between Cole and Marion truly is magical. Marion starts out as a frightened, lost woman. But through her journey and finding love with Cole she becomes a strong willful, vibrant woman ready to fight for the man she loves and the life she wants.
I definitely recommend this book to any paranormal romance reader. And if you haven’t picked up a paranormal than I would most certainly recommend this as your first! It’s captivating and spellbinding, you really feel like you are sitting through a movie as you read this book. Smith has an amazing way of expression emotion and showing detail. If you are looking for a book to send you on a whirlwind love and romance ride than you MUST read this book!
