Return to the sensual and feral stirrings of the Phoenix Pack as a woman who’s already bound to one man is tempted by a wolf who’s bound only to his nightly desires.
Cat shifter Mila Devereaux can’t help but see it as a betrayal. That her one true mate imprinted himself on another female was hard enough to accept. Struggling to be at peace with her loveless fate, she doesn’t fight the suggestion of entering an arranged mating. Then she meets Dominic, a pack enforcer with a notorious reputation. It’s in his very scent. This irresistible playboy—and delicious badass wolf—is making Mila’s fantasies come alive again.
Alarming, compelling, and heady with sensual energy, Dominic is an expert at making women shed their inhibitions. Now everything about him—his killer smile, his perfectly sculpted body, and his smooth-as-honey voice—is drawing in a captivating new catch. But for the first time in his life, Dominic is feeling more than a fling. He finds himself tantalized by a female who makes him think of forever. He wants all of Mila and won’t be satisfied until he has it.
As the passion grows wild, so does the risk. They’re falling in love in the shadows and secrets of their pasts. And it’s threatening to destroy everything Mila and Dominic are fighting for. And are destined for.
Wow, I can’t believe that this is already the eighth book of this series. Time sure does fly by, especially with these great characters. I have to admit that I forgot some of the characters stories from previous books but given that the first one came out seven years ago I think I can be forgiven. Anyway, from what I do remember of the previous reads, I had some reservations about Dominic’s character since he was such a huge flirt and the ladies sure did love him (and still do in this book). But turns out that my prejudice was just that. In the end I fell in love with his unique humor and how he deep down was actually a great guy. He just needed the right woman or better said the right pallas cat to make him overcome his insecurities. And don’t even get me started on Mila’s character. She truly is awesome. She’s the most no bullshit and down to earth character I’ve read in a long while. That is until you try to cross her, then she’s the devil cat incarnate, which btw I’m all down for. I mean, if someone had to go through so much stuff as she did, you bet I’d be so angry not even the pope could save me. At times it even felt like I was reading a Game of Thrones episode, so much treachery… But in the end, I loved it all. Even the crazy exes didn’t bother me, not in the slightest. Save to say they all got what the deserved, ha! It always feels great when you know that you can count on the author to do right by the characters and essentially by the reader. So, can I say that I liked and enjoyed the story? Sure can! I even think that this one, apart from the first book, is my favourite story of this series. Everything just fits. And on that note, if you read the previous books in this series and aren’t sure about this one, then I would highly recommend you read it. Bacause it’s amazing and I’m sure you won’t be regreting it.
