They’ve been hiding from the past. Now it’s time to fight for their future.
Red Rock Pass, Book 4
New England is ideal for vampire Adam Dubois. His cozy home in the Great North Woods reminds him of a happier time when werewolves and witches were stuff of legends, and he was a simple lumberjack.
Hiding from past failures has worked for over eighty years, but a life debt owed to the Red Rock alpha has forced him to leave his retreat—and come face to face with a woman who challenges and tempts him on every level.
Hiding secrets is a lonely business, and Cindy Shepherd is lonely with a capital L. Red Rock isn’t exactly crawling with available men, but her interest in the mystery-shrouded new vampire in town seems mutual. After all, it’s only sex—there’s no danger he’ll dig deep enough to unleash the demons of her past.
Casual flirtation turns deadly serious when Adam discovers that the vampire plaguing Red Rock is using his mistakes as a road map. When it comes to his life, he knows Cindy has his back. But in order to secure the future, they both must trust each other with more—even if it means sacrificing themselves to save everything they hold dear.
This fourth book in the Red Rock Pass saga by Moira Rogers is the best yet. The danger to the pack is coming closer, and the tension is evident on every single page. This story kept me on the edge until the very end, wondering if they would succeed.
I love the world of Moira Rogers’ wolves. They are real people, with cares, concerns and passions just like the rest of us. There is such a feeling of family and friendship between the characters, and these are folks that could live just down the road, except that they can turn into wolves pretty much at will. I love that we see the pack dynamic in a more personal light. Adam Dubois is a wonderfully complex character, one we got a brief look at in the previous book.
This book is definitely Adam and Cindy’s story, a story of secrets revealed and passions unleashed. I love Cindy: she grabs on to what she wants with both hands, but isn’t afraid to do what may have to be done in the end. I love Adam, and his self deprecating sense of humor, and his dedication to his friends. And the man is seriously hot in the bargain. Once these two wonderful characters decide to let the past go, they both soar into the future, and take the roles necessary for the coming battle. And the passion they share grows as the book progresses, culminating in one scene in Cindy’s kitchen that requires ice, a fan and lots of heavy breathing to get through.
Do Adam and Cindy save the Red Rock Pass pack, and find the happy ever after they deserve? You will just have to read this one to find out. But bring the ice and turn the air down low.
