Theron, the Alpha of the Lochinver pack, is not looking forward to Christmas this year. His brother Xavier has been fortunate to have found his lifemate, and this will be their first Christmas together.
Jeri had only met her friend's partner once before and although he seemed nice he was too intense for her liking. Now Jenna has invited Jeri to spend the Christmas holidays with the two of them and Xavier's older brother.
When Theron arrives home after attending pack business he is assaulted by the most delicious scent. Who does it belong to and how does he go about claiming the owner for his mate?
This is a fun book, with surprises threaded through it.
Jenna has found her perfect mate in Xavier. Her best friend Jeri is coming for a visit at Christmas, and Jenna and Xavier are watching to see what happens. It seems that Jeri is the destined mate of Xavier’s brother Theron, alpha of the Lochinver pack, and he hasn’t even met her yet.
When Jeri arrives, she goes to her room to freshen up after the drive, and emerges from her bath to find a handsome man in her room, staring at her like she is tonight’s dinner. Jenna takes her aside, as Xavier gets Theron out of the way for a while. Can Jeri adjust to the knowledge that werewolves do exist? Can she accept that her best friend is mated to one? And can she accept what Theron offers-a new life with him?
I liked the way that the main characters ‘met’ and the way that Jeri and Theron recognized what was between them. This is a great story for those times when you just need a short something to fill in a few minutes.
Jeri is a sensible woman, but one willing to hear the whole story before acting. I liked that she didn’t run off screaming once she found out that werewolves exist, and I liked her acceptance of the attraction between herself and Theron.
Theron is the hot and sexy alpha of the pack, and he rushes in, following his nose to his mate. I like that he was reasonable, and gave Jeri time to adjust to the strange new experience without pressure.
This is a fun and hot short read, and it can really warm you after being out in the cold. There are some interesting twists here, and this is a story that could have gone two ways, but I loved the happy ever after that developed here.
