It’s 1936 in Calgary. After a terrifying experience, Noreen is frantic to escape the Garden of Eden cult, so she catches the night train north out of town. An ominous stranger and a farmer who’s furious she slept in his barn remind her just how alone she is in the world.
Wolf shifters, Les and Karl, eke out a primitive existence on the flanks of the Canadian Rockies. Between Hunters who want to kill them and a wildfire raging out of control, they’re relieved when their clan leader, Jed, shows up.
Jed has a surprise in his car, though. While passing through the nearest town, he spied Noreen by the side of the road picking straw out of her hair and offered her a ride. Before Jed’s car even stops rolling, Les and Karl know she’s their mate. So skittish she’s barely willing to exit the car, Noreen busies herself helping Jed and his pack mates unload supplies.
Can Les and Karl convince her to stay? If she does, will the risks she faced as a cult member pale in comparison to being mated to shifters?
I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to read/review the follow-up to Alice's Alpha. I love the world that the author has created for her characters. My favorite part of Ann’s writing is her unique talent of blending setting and circumstances to establish challenges for her characters to overcome.
Although this is a stand-alone story I recommend you read Alice's Alpha, as an introduction. :Raises wine glass: “Here is hoping for many more adventures with this wolf clan.”
