What better way for a pack of wulfkin shifters to remain in seclusion than to hide in plain sight?
Death has followed Alena Novac’s circus family for years, but when the police arrest her brother for murder, she must rescue him before he transforms behind prison walls. With less than a week to execute her plan, a member from the Varlac family who murdered her mother reappears. Now, Alena has to decide whether to make good on her promise to avenge her mother’s death or risk rescuing her brother.
Enre Ulf has one mission – prevent Alena’s father from claiming his territory and slaughtering his wulfkin pack in Transylvania. Enre may have turned his back on his Varlac heritage, but that doesn’t mean he won’t impersonate one to infiltrate the circus clan and take out their alpha. Knowing that his secrets will lead to his demise, Enre takes the risk in order to save his home. What he never planned on was his wolf claiming Alena as his mate.
Now with the police closing in, and the real Varlac threatening them, Alena and Enre must overcome their pasts to save their packs’ futures.
I rather liked this small paranormal story. The way it was written reminded me of the innocence of a Young Adult allure but with mature taste and scenes, It was a refreshing take on a well known genre. The energy between the two main characters was electric from the moment they saw each other that it drew me in from the first. Added to that the drama unfolding around them and it kept your interest. I felt that the author could have drawn out the ending a bit more as it ended quite abruptly for me but this is the second book in the series so we will have to wait and see what is to occur next. Based on content this book is for an mature audience of 18+. I am an independent reviewer for Romance Authors That Rock and am giving this book 4 Hearts.
