All the power and killer instinct she possess can’t protect her from the claiming of one determined wolf.
They call her ‘The woman in white,’ whisper ‘Death-Bringer’ with their last breath, but no one knows exactly what she is. Not even Voltaire herself. The deadly magic within her is a living thing, able to crush anyone and everything with a blink. Abandoning the blood-soaked world she’s used to, Voltaire seeks out the one constant in her tired life-the green-eyed wolf in her dreams. She’s ignored the wolf’s call for years, afraid to surrender, but danger haunts her mate. He needs her.
Wolf-shifter Blake Montez is in the middle of a war, battling the usurpers intent on taking over his territory. Unfamiliar magic hums in the air, unnoticed-it seems-by everyone but him. He finds the source already under his nose, in his home. The delicate woman in white knows things no one should know, and the heat simmering between them is unlike anything he’s ever felt. His wolf recognizes her as his mate, though Blake remains unsure he can trust her.
Voltaire sets out to prove herself with time running out. Enemies are on the prowl, some foreseen, others remaining cloaked in shadow. She and Blake team up, fighting side by side, but in the end Voltaire might be the biggest threat to their love.
Review: Ok I have to say once again Avril Ashton is off the chain good. This book kept my attention from the first page till the last. Entrancing and sexy characters who you fall in love with immediately. Action packed from page one.
Voltaire is a volatile character, but you can also sense the vulnerability in her and you want her to succeed in whatever she does. With the mouth of a sailor, ash white hair and a blue and a gold eye she casts a beautiful figure of a woman. Though what kind of being she is, isn’t quite understood by her or anyone else for that matter. Her psychic abilities are nothing to sneeze at either.
Blake wow what can I say about him. He is one sexy shifter wolf male that cares deeply for those he wishes to protect and that comes to include Voltaire even though he doesn’t trust her. But even with the mistrust Blake is drawn to Voltaire and cannot help himself when it comes to claiming her as his own true mate.
The plot is well developed and keeps one guessing as to what will happen next. A book with a heroine that can kick butt and in heels no less has my vote as one great read. Filled with exciting twists and turns
Voltaire and Blake both have Alpha tendencies and it makes for a on your toes exciting read as you wonder whom will give in to whom. A very believable love story. Once more proving to the naysayers that you can have erotica and romance in the same book. Would I get an Avril Ashton book again? The answer is a big sounding Yes! She never disappoints. Her stories are always sexy, gritty, dark, fun, loving and erotic all the things one wants in an erotic romance paranormal. And the urban humor in her stories make it seem down to earth and realistic. This book is steamy, sexy and filled with those moments that will have you sighing or catching your breath. Cheers to Avril Ashton, she has made me smile yet again.
