Ayasha White knows she is different, even for a wolf. When a fire burns her house to the ground, killing her uncle, she flees to Wolf Creek and into the arms of Lenox Carter. Her body awakens with passion and her wolf spirit rises in the presence of her mate. But Lenox holds disturbing knowledge of her past and a cold truth about her other mate.
Riley Tormel, Lenox’s friend-turned-foe, leads the rebel pack hot on Ayasha’s tail. He won’t stop until she’s dead. When she unleashes a powerful surge of emotions within him, he’s left questioning his motives and unable to shake a foreign desire to protect her.
Time is running out. Ayasha’s life lies in Riley’s unpredictable hand. Can she and Lenox convince Riley his place is with them? Or will the untamed rebel wolf rejoin forces with his pack and hunt them to the death in the wild night?
In a matter of minutes Aya’s safe and protected world with her uncle is shattered and her life in danger. Little did she know, as a sacred white wolf, her life was forfeit from birth. Aya’s uncle sacrifices himself to ensure that Aya has a chance to reach Lenox Carter, one of her two destined mates. While Nox wants only to protect Aya and make her happy, her other mate, Riley, is sworn to eradicate the white wolves from the face of the earth. Can Aya forgive Riley’s role in the death of her beloved uncle? Will Riley be able to let go of his desire for revenge? When Aya confronts Riley the dialogue and tension is explosive!
In this second installment of Ms. Regale’s thrilling Blood Moon Legacy the fight to save the last descendants of the sacred white wolves continues with Aysha White and her mates Lenox Carter and Riley Tormel. Wild Nights is every bit as exciting and breath stealing as the first book, Wild Hearts. Ms. Regale has created a tantalizing world of werewolf shifters and the legacy of the Blood Moon Massacre. Rebel wolves continue in their quest to destroy the powerful and mystical white wolves. The sadistic she-wolf that tried unsuccessfully to destroy Shyla, Coal and Jacy in Wild Hearts has a sister, Eliza who uses her control over a rebel band of wolves to manipulate them into killing for her pleasure.
There are so many great elements to this story. The romance and sexual chemistry between Aya, Nox and Riley is hot. Their personal struggles that have to be overcome so that they can be a triad unit are compelling. The inherent evil of the devious Eliza is literally palpable. Ms. Regale has a very vivid writing style that makes the action appear to jump right off the page and carry the reader along for the adventure.
Eliza mentions having another sister that gives this reviewer hope that there will be at least one more installment to this series. While I would have liked to have had Shyla, Jacy and Cole brought into this story, even if it was for a cameo only, it didn’t detract from the book at all. My understanding of the story is that Aya and Shyla would be cousins so I was looking for a reunion of sorts, but that could happen in a third story.
The wolves out to decimate the white wolves seem to get more inventive and determined as the series progresses. Eliza was certainly more manipulative and sadistic than Laela. This reader will be keeping her eyes open with hopeful anticipation that Ms. Regale will honor us with one more installment!
