I’d been hanging out for Cormack and Elena’s romance ever since they appeared in Celtic Moon and this book was definitely worth the wait. Elena is targeted by Pendaran who wants to control her abilities activating Cormack’s protective streak. He has to master being a human before he can defeat Pendaran though and attempt to win Elena’s heart.
When Prudence “Rue” Alessandra Maccon Akeldama, our favourite metanatural, scores a dirigible from her beloved adopted vampire father, she and a motley crew head off to India to source the perfect blend of tea. Naturally she becomes embroiled in a conspiracy of epic proportions and just as naturally she manages to prevail against the odds.
Jessica McClain is special. She’s the only female werewolf in existence and her mere presence is enough to send the wolves into a frothing frenzy. A mercenary hunts her down but he’s hot so Jessica decides being rescued isn’t in her best interests. Cue some cheesy dialogue and the kind of plot we’ve seen time and time again.
Erin Flynn bucks the trend as she is a female Enforcer in a world dominated by men. She and Noah, the werewolf that adores her, travel down to New Orleans to try to investigate the disappearances of a group of pregnant shape-shifters. Angelo, their packmate and Brianna, a Fae warrior, are also recruited to help out.
Lachlain MacRieve, Lycan warrior king has been imprisoned in the Parisian catacombs for 150 years give or take. One night he sniffs his mate and amputates his own leg in his desperation to get to her. Emmaline spots him and sensibly does a runner. When he finally catches her, he tries to sexually assault her. I’m afraid that things pretty much went downhill from there.
This court is now in session… When Natalya Stravinsky was abandoned by her lover, she fell apart and was cast out of her pack. Now she spends her days organising things at an antique market and avoiding the attention of the Long Island werewolves who want to kill her.
Werewolf enforcer Jayce Kazan has a complicated relationship with Kat Saburova. They were together and blissfully happy until Kat realised that Jayce didn’t want to make her his bondsmate and spend the rest of their lives together. Jayce can’t forgive himself for not being there when she needed him.
Shortly after Liam rocked up in town with his pack, he sniffed December McIntyre and realised that she was ‘the one’. Unfortunately December is human and she’s not willing to mate with or even date Liam. Her brother, the local sheriff, is also dead against any relationship between the two. When December becomes a target for an anti-shifter group, Liam takes a stand.
Ana Cordona is temporarily managing her pack since her father, the Alpha, and most of the pregnant females were killed suddenly. Ana’s pack is fairly vulnerable to the attentions of the sleazy Taggart and she agrees to pair up with the Alpha Connor who she grew up with. Connor isn’t content with just merging their packs though and wants to claim Ana as a bondsmate.
Human Luke Dalton inherited a werewolf business in a poker match but he doesn’t have much time to enjoy his win as his sister Giselle runs off with his enemy Bryce Landry. He decides to team up with Bryce’s sister Giselle to find the wayward pair more quickly. Unfortunately the book is not as interesting as the premise.
