As werewolves go, Draven isn’t exactly a spring chicken. At fifteen hundred years old, he’s beyond ready to find his mate and settle down. He’s watched as his pack mates introduced their women one by one. But the fairer sex doesn’t stir him. He craves the hard planes and strength of a man’s body. He yearns for the day when destiny delivers the one chosen for him.
Wyatt has come to Buck Lake to spend his two-week vacation. It doesn’t get off to the best start, however, when the bum motor of his fishing boat strands him in the water. Being rescued by a man who can only be described as a walking wet dream certainly improves his outlook. And when he finds himself in a heated embrace with his rescuer, his whole trip is made.
But Draven has a secret. And a former pack member hell bent on revenge would like nothing more than to destroy any chance the new couple has at a happily ever after.
Draven has come to his lake house to get some long overdue rest. What he does not count on is meeting his mate. Wyatt has come to the lake to take a holiday. An unexpected problem has him stranded in the lake right outside Draven’s house. One whiff and Draven is a goner. How will he ever tell Wyatt just what he is as well as explaining that they are mates? Can Draven gain his trust before an ex-pack member comes sniffing around or will he loose Wyatt before he has a chance?
I loved the intensity of the emotions in this book. Draven is man who has lived his life with honor and pride. He has always done what was right, which has not always set well with others who do not care about honor. Watching him try to deal with Rick and his interference with his mate was a good read.
Wyatt may be a mortal but that does not make him less of a man. He is a strong man who is more than ready to fight for what he wants, and what he wants is Draven. It was nice to see the spark between these two turn into something more as the story progressed. Draven and Wyatt are a great couple. Both men care deeply for the other and are not afraid to show it. The love that they share quickly becomes apparent as the story goes on. Draven needs a strong man like Wyatt to stand at his side and fight along with him.
I was so engrossed with this story that I read it in one sitting. The author takes the reader for a wonderful ride into the world of werewolves and their mates. I enjoyed my time in this world and will gladly return with the next book.
