Kalen is happy living her normal, human life. Though she’s the daughter of two strong werewolves, she inherited almost none of the wolf’s traits. She has a great job, a comfortable house and Brennan, her very sexy, very human fiancé. She has no intention of ever telling him that her family turns furry and howls at the moon.
Then Rebel returns, a childhood friend Kalen hasn’t seen in years, stepping out of the shadows of her past. Despite the desire simmering between herself, Rebel and Brennan, Kalen is not about to let Rebel screw up her plans for a normal existence.
But when an injury puts Brennan on the edge of death, there’s only one way to save him. Now Kalen must watch her fiancé turn into the very creature she fears, drawing her back into a world she left behind long ago. Her new werewolf’s lust and needs and their mutual attraction to Rebel awaken hidden depths in Kalen. Is she strong enough to keep two werewolves?
What’s a girl to do when all she has in life is a very sexy fiancée, a successful career and a very hot, hot, hot childhood friend who shows up one day on her couch half naked? Oh, and this particular girl is also a werewolf with an identity crisis.
Kalen is living her life as a human with little connection to her werewolf heritage when she is confronted with her past and two men who will need her to survive. With the appearance of her childhood friend, werewolf Rebel, Kalen finds herself looking at him in a whole new light. But she cannot ignore her deep devotion and love for her fiancée, Brennen. An unforeseen circumstance brings Brennen deep into the lifestyle of the werewolves and Kalen now needs to acknowledge her reality and accept her werewolf lineage. With the help of Rebel and her werewolf family, Kalen is able to accept her true identity and at the same time teach Brennen to accept his new identity and embrace love from whoever holds his heart.
This is Book 5 of the Wolf Heritage series but it stands very well all by itself. The story moves so well, the detail and dialogue are so well placed and the characters are interesting, dynamic and diverse. The characters of the two heroes are so opposite to start and then their similarities emerge with such imagination. This book contains so much story you can read it twice and not come away with the same thing. I'm certain you will enjoy this throughout every page.
