Cass Nolan has been forced to avoid the burn of human touch for her whole life, drawing comfort instead from her dreams of a silver wolf—her protector, her friend. When her stalking nightmares return, her imaginary dead sister’s ghost tells her to run, Cass knows she should listen, but the sinfully hot stranger she just hired to work on her ranch has her mind buzzing with possibilities. Not only does her skin accept Nathan’s touch, it demands it. Cass must make a decision—run again and hope she saves the people who have become her family, or stand and fight. Question is, will it be with Nathan or against him?

Nathan Rivers’ life is consumed by his quest to find the Omega wolf responsible for killing his brother, but when the trail leads him to Cass and her merry band of shapeshifters, his wolf wants only to claim her for himself. When evidence begins piling up that Cass is the Omega he’s been seeking, things become complicated—especially since someone else wants her dead. Saving her life might mean sacrificing his own, but it may be worth it to save the woman he can’t keep from reaching for.


Review: I was a little lost at the beginning of this book.  But once I got past the confusing part, I was up to speed and found myself enjoying the story. I am rather partial to werewolves so I liked that this had weres in it. In most stories shifters tend to stick to their own kind.  I liked the magical element along with all the different weres living and working together to protect Cass who was unaware of what she actually was; which made for a very entertaining story.

Ms. Kyle wrote with passion for the paranormal almost as if she had inside information. The characters from the main ones to the ones in the background were real. They were easy to envision. Her eye for detail made a very compelling story that I hated to see end.

I liked that Nathan, who was on a quest which led him to Cass, knew that she was his mate right away even if she was human. They had a bond from the beginning which drew them to each other. This helped in making for some pretty tense scenes along with some hot and steamy sex. Nathan tended to be a little overprotective of his mate but Cass showed him that she was much stronger than she looked and could hold her own. I loved that Ms. Kyle had her use a dart gun on him so she could look for her sister. It added some warmth and humor to the story.

Overall I enjoyed Ms. Kyle’s Omega story. The bond that the sisters had was magical. I liked the way they connected and yet even though they didn’t know where the other was as one thought her twin was dead they still worked in helping each other survive. I thought of them almost as an atom split each needing the other to survive.

I am so looking forward to the next in this series to see what new adventure we get to go on. This was such a fun quirky book with something for everyone.
