Red Rock Pass, Book 3

After a decade under a corrupt alpha’s thumb, Dylan Gennaro is still reeling from the changes in his life: a new home, a new alpha, a pack at war. Even normal things like an ending relationship. Still, when he’s asked to work with an outcast witch, he agrees without hesitation. Maybe by protecting her, he’ll rediscover his own inner strength. If, indeed, it exists.

Sasha Wallace lost her mentor in a vicious attack that left her scarred in spirit as well as body. While she’s grateful for the refuge offered by the Red Rock alpha, it’s tough living with the pack’s suspicion. Even though—or maybe because—she’s willing to use her powers to help them fight their war. Except for Dylan. When she’s finally free to find a new home, he’ll be the only one she regrets leaving behind.

Their attraction is a balm to their wounded hearts, until their journey for knowledge brings them face to face with a terrifying vampire. Neither has the strength for this fight—but if they can let go of their pasts and trust each other, they might just be able to do it. Together.

The Red Rock Pass pack is uneasy. Dylan Gennaro is viewed as a hero, after rescuing wolves held by an evil and corrupt Alpha. But he doesn’t see himself in the same light as the others do. When he is asked to help an outcast witch, he agrees to do it, hoping he can find a sense of inner strength.

Sasha Wallace is a powerful witch, but she makes the wolves at Red Rock Pass nervous. When she and Dylan are asked to go to Maine to seek help from a vampire in order to save a pack-mate and end the vampire influence over another Montana pack, they agree. They travel to Maine, along with Brynn and Joe, to try and locate Adam Dubois, a vampire who may be able to give them what they need to break the vampire hold on the Montana wolves. What they find there is worse than they could have imagined.

When the Maine wolves, with the help of a vampire woman, try to seize Brynn’s power, Sasha and Dylan are in for the fight of their lives. Can Sasha, Dylan and Adam beat the vampire at her own game? Will they be able to keep Brynn safe, rescue Joe and get the answers needed to help the Red Rock Pass pack? And will they finally give in to the attraction they feel for each other and find happiness?

In this third offering of the Red Rock Pass wolves, Moira Rogers gives us a wonderfully complex love story. Dylan is a conflicted soul, wanting to find his inner strength, but doubting himself at almost every turn. Sasha wants Dylan, but doesn’t want him to sacrifice his place at Red Rock for her. As their attraction grows, the insecurity of any new relationship keeps cropping up between them.

Ms. Rogers has created such marvelous people in Dylan and Sasha, and made them real. I laughed with them cried for them and rejoiced when they finally came together. I loved the way Dylan enjoyed the simple things with Sasha, like researching the history of wolves and vampires together. They are not super-human or unnatural, they are simply a man and woman learning about each other and falling in love.

Will they stay in Red Rock Pass? Only the future will tell. Will they have their happy ever after, wherever they end up? Most definitely. I want to see more of the Red Rock Pass wolves, especially Brynn and Joe. This is a world I want to visit again, and often.

If you like your romance a bit on the hot and wild side, with vampires and witches and wolves (oh my) this one is for you.
