Cole Blackpelt makes his living as an underground cage fighter up and down the Gulf Coast. When he was young, he fled his home, believing that his entire family was dead. But a wolf-shifter witch shows up to tell him his brothers are not only alive, but one of them will die if he doesn’t help.
Mallory Delgado is the curvy, pretty, but lonely sheriff’s deputy in the sleepy down of Lockdale, Texas. Nothing ever happens in Lockdale, except that in the past year, there was a strange multiple homicide that left the old sheriff dead. And now the new sheriff, Ben Smith, has decided to take on the richest and most corrupt man in town, Carson DeLaine. She’s worried he’s bitten off more than he can chew when a pair of strangers show up in town and Ben falls mysteriously ill. But someone else is coming to Lockdale, an unlikely hero who just might save the day and steal Mallory’s heart

Review: If you have ever lived in a small town, you know that a lot happens underneath the surface and even small towns have an underworld. What most small towns don’t have, however, is someone hell-bent on destroying a whole family – or what’s left of it, in any case – through supernatural means. Cole Blackpelt, a cage-fighting bear shifter, is notified of his brother, Ben’s being in trouble by a witch named Valinda, but Cole is about to discover that Valinda isn’t all she seems to be, and not all problems can be solved using his fists. Teaming up with Mallory Delgado, Cole works to save Ben and their other brother as forces conspire against them all.
This novel is the second book in the trilogy and, while I have not read the first book, I found it very interesting and there was not much action that I felt I was missing having not ready the first book. I do think that reading it would give a richer understanding into the events of this story, and I will definitely be looking for it, but the novel is written in a way that there is a beginning, middle, and end. The epilogue does make it obvious that there is another book to follow, but it does not end in a cliffhanger. The novel ends simply with making the reader wanting to know what happens next for the Blackpelt brothers and their mates. I truly enjoyed this book and Macy Babineaux has made her way onto my list of authors to look read. There are a few explicit scenes that make me feel more comfortable recommending this book to readers 18+.
