Plagued by nightmares. Stalked by kidnappers. Tamra McMillan needs a safe haven. When tattooed bad-ass Kyle Rossini steps into her life, the last thing she expects to find is a sanctuary from her demons in his arms. In fact, everything about him screams danger. But appearances can be deceiving. The tender possessiveness of his touch, the hunger in his eyes, the scorching sensuality of his kiss… He wants to brand her as his for life.
Etruscan werewolf Kyle is a loner. The king’s assassin with a killer’s instincts. The last thing he needs is a mate who could be placed in danger because of him. Until he meets the one woman who needs him more than he needs his solitude. When Tamra, battered but not broken, stumbles into his world and tumbles into his bed, she captures his heart. And nothing—not kidnappers or visions of his possible death—will keep him from her.
Tamara is looking for somewhere secluded to hide away from the world after a vicious attack. She finds comfort in talking to a wolf pup and later adult make wolf, not realizing that there is more to these two then meets the eye. She’s horrified to learn that she has been sharing her darkest secrets with a teenage girl and her father, who live next door. Kyle has never been interested in anyone enough to give up his life as the Kings assassin and his bachelor ways, but he is instantly attracted to Tam. When he learns that someone is after Tam, he instantly wants to protect her, even if it goes against centuries of training and might expose all that he holds dear. This was a very interesting story, but there were several points that I felt that the sub-plots distracted from the core story. It definitely didn’t read as a Book 1 of a series as I felt that I was missing some backstory. I did find all characters to be interesting and it made me want to read further storylines. Two drawbacks: Tamara’s attack was discussed several times as it shaped her character, but no details were ever really given. There were some editing issues that were drawbacks from the story. I rate this book 4.5 Stars.
