Werewolf Sair McCallan escapes the confines of her brother’s pack with the help of a mated werewolf couple who believe in open sexuality and relationships. With Weylyn and Keir Randall, Sair experiences freedom in all things for the first time in her life. When she meets her mate, she’s shocked to find he’s a boring, broody vampire. Uptight Marius Granville has his staid and orderly life completely shattered by the arrival of his bloodmate, a beautiful werewolf who steals his heart and expects him to join in her kinky play with the Randalls. Marius is forced out of his hum drum existence and opens himself to new sexual experiences to please Sair. As her new mate strives to give her everything she needs, Sair battles internal demons that threaten their fragile new relationship.
Can Werewolf Sair McCallan except her vampire mate Marius? Sair longs to escape the prison of her pack but she is not ready to bond with her mate and trade one prison for another. With the help of Weylyn and Keir will Sair find love and a home with Marius?
I loved Marius and his willingness to love and help Sair no matter what. Even letting her friends Weylyn and Keir into his heart as well. Sair herself was a strong woman and I enjoyed seeing her blossom and discover herself with the help of Weylyn, Keir and Marius. The bond that develops between Sair and Marius was a great read. Not only must the two discover each other and their feelings they must also deal with their respective families and friends. Showing just how strong their bond becomes.
Once again Lex Valentine brings us back to the magical world that has been built through out this series. As we watch Marius and Sair’s story play out we get to revisit old friends and meet new ones.
