A lone wolf is a dangerous creature, until he meets his mate. Then he’ll become lethal to protect her.
Faith Anderson never asked to be a wolf shifter, but one strange encounter with the Westervelt Wolves and she suddenly has a past she knows nothing about and a future wrought with danger. No one is more disappointed than she to discover that the island does not hold a mate for her…that is, until she collides with Theo Kane, the missing prince of the Westervelt Wolves who has chosen isolation to save his pack from what he believes are his insane tendencies.
Theo couldn’t imagine anything worse than the near death experience that left him scarred and forever changed. Until some of the same things start happening to Faith. Now he has no choice but to face what he has avoided for over a year if he doesn’t want the past to repeat itself, this time taking Faith along for the ride. Together they will battle demons, invisible wolves, and worst of all his father to find their eternal love.
But if the price is eternity, are they willing to risk it all?
How do you flush out a traitor who can mask their identity and even hide their scent from a wolves sensitive sense of smell? Well, when the former Alpha is a psychotic madman who resorts to all kinds of dark magic to destroy the Westervelt Werewolves and their mates, then an invisible traitor becomes the next logical spy in his sadistic plans.
After fending off an attack with a demon and now self-exiled to hide his darker side from his pack members, scarred and tortured Theo Kane (half brother to the Alpha, Tristan Kane) soon finds that his mate is the new head of security, Faith Anderson.
Rebecca Royce is a shining star with this action filled and fast paced story between werewolves Theo and Faith. Ms. Royce continues to impress with her engaging writing of wolf-shifter adventures. Her fictional world development is both believable and fascinating. I keep finding myself searching for wolf traits in my personality half-believing I might be a long lost shifter at heart. I have grown to love this series and look forward to each new saga.
Dream-mystic Faith discovers her wolf side quite by accident when a forced shifting takes place in Mexico. She's finally able to set her wolf free by working security detail on the island that has been calling for her return for many years. What a shock it is to Faith to discover not only that there is another Kane brother on the island but that he's her predestined mate.
Soon Theo and Faith find themselves working together to flush out the enemy among them. Despite the physical and mental repercussions they both have had to endure, you'll love how these two lovers secure their happiness before the wolf-shifters are all destroyed.
Ms. Royce has discovered the secret of writing her werewolf creations in such away to express their dual natures when ultimately they are one and the same-being. I love the witty dialogue and banter between the simplistic thinking wolf and it's emotional charged human counterpart. I find this unique and enjoyable.
I suggest anyone interested in this series to start from the beginning as each story is riveting and exciting; however I'm impressed with how each book covers enough background material to insure it can be a stand alone novel.
This particular story, though furthering the drama of the werewolves fate, focuses mostly on Faith and Theo and their lives, their past and how to unlock the mysteries that ultimately will decide their futures. I have really enjoyed the fact that these two characters accepted each other at the beginning of the tale and found themselves working together as a team to solve the drama of discovering who has betrayed them. The secondary characters are insightful and informative. You can feel the sense of evil in the development of this serial making this paranormal realm invigorating and thrilling. Each new addition to the Westervelt Wolves series entices us with a nibble of upcoming exploits making one anticipate reading about the Kane brothers, their new mates and the battle between good and evil.
Looking for an enchanting fable with scintillating and enigmatic plots, a sense of family unity, and a succulent romance that engages your imagination and satisfies your sense of adventure? Then Wolf Reborn might be the book you have been searching for.
