Blurb: For two years, Beth Williams has run from the past, and the beast that dwells inside her. She is haunted by memories of being kidnapped and the savage attack that killed her best friend. Now Beth finally thinks she’s ready to move on…with Braden Edwards, a charming, irresistibly sexy man who tempts Beth to embrace the present.
But the past lurks closer than Beth realizes. Markko Bolvek, one of the werewolves who kidnapped her, has tracked her to Portland, Oregon, his pursuit fueled by a hunger for vengeance. Only Braden, a werewolf himself, senses the danger shadowing her steps. The Edwards and Bolveks have been enemies for centuries—and despite the instant connection he feels with Beth, Braden isn’t sure which side of the war she’s on.

With suspicion at odds with their attraction, Beth and Braden must learn to trust one another to stop Markko for good. Can Beth accept the wolf within—and love a man who embodies everything she fears?

Review: This book absolutely blew me away! It was amazing from beginning to end. It was extremely well written with characters that I could see coming to life as I read. After reading this book, I have decided I want to become a werewolf. I read this book in one day. When I wasn’t reading it, I was thinking about reading it. This is the type of book I enjoy. This book sticks with you and you will not forget it.

Beth is an independent woman with few acquaintances and no close friends. Running from a painful past that she cannot bring herself to face, she does not want to have friends that she will just end up leaving behind. She is about to learn, though, that sometimes having the right friends can help her come to grips with the pain from her past and to accept her future with open arms.

Braden is a solid man who comes from a close and solid family. When he sees something he wants, he goes after it and he wants Beth. There is just something about her that calls to him. Now he just has to figure out how to get passed her defenses to make her see that she can trust him.

In this book, Beth has to learn to trust Braden and to let go of a past that she has held on tightly to for years. She also has to learn to accept a part of her she has tried so hard to ignore. When an enemy from one horrible night years ago finally tracks her down, she will have to decide whether or not she can trust the love that Braden and his family have for her.

This is definitely worth curling up with and reading. I would suggest, however, that you prepare yourself to read it all in one sitting.
