Heaven dreamed of the day he would meet his mate and settle down. He had no idea that the bad luck he experienced his whole life was about to give its grand performance. How has the fairy tale romance he dreamed of turned from blissful wishing into the hell he would soon find himself in?
Murdock has always been the playboy of the estate. With an endless supply of willing males, who needs a mate? Then Heaven walks into the bathroom at the club and sees something Murdock wishes he hadn’t.
Now Murdock has two weeks to convince his mate that he didn’t know Heaven existed and win his love or Maverick will execute him. Talk about pressure.
Heaven struggles to get past the images burned into his memory and find forgiveness in his heart before he loses his mate forever. The only wrench in that plan is the humans who have discovered their existence and are now out for blood.
I must say Heaven’s Hell was straight out of left field and took me by complete surprise. Ms. Hagen adds that special shock factor to all her stories and this one is no different. I applaud this author’s creative storytelling that feeds the imaginations of her readers and keeps them on the edge of their seats.
Heaven and Murdock’s relationship starts out rocky from the get go. As the reader you can’t blame Heaven’s reactions to finding his mate in the arms of another. But Heaven’s dramatics at times are a little over the top. For a grey wolf he’s is still considered young at fifty. Being young and naïve causes struggles that he and Murdock have to work through.
Murdock puts off the image that he wants to be a forever bachelor playing the field with no commitment to tie him down. It’s all a façade he puts out there so no one sees his fears. After all his years he believes he is destined to be alone until he dies. His and Heaven’s relationship starts off less than satisfactorily but with hard work and forgiveness these two men work toward their happy ever after.
As a devoted fan of this series have been waiting for the addition of humans who have discovered their secret and Ms. Hagen touches on this in Heaven’s Hell. Heaven is kidnapped and taken to a lab where the unexpected happens to him that will change his and Murdock’s lives forever.
This story is action packed to the max. So many things are going on with these two men it’s amazing they keep their sanity in check. There is an introduction of three new timber wolves to the pack that has me looking forward to reading their stories. Ms. Hagen has out done herself with Heaven’s Hell and it’s a must read for all Brac Pack fans.
