The past was pain.
The present unclear.
For Tyla Rand, her future couldn’t be bleaker. Death follows her everywhere, especially behind those she cares about. Being a member of the royal pack, she believes her time of happiness will come. That is, until wolves from her old pack show up missing. Her mission is to find them, but she won’t be going alone.
Sebastian Lyall, a true born royal and the one man Tyla loathes, has offered to help in her quest. Their journey not only brings out their true desires, but attracts the attention of another, someone from Tyla’s past. However, nothing is as it seems. Death is not done with her and now he wants her to pay. He won’t be satisfied until he’s taken everything away . . including those she loves.
Another solid story of heartbreak, deception, revenge, true love and new connections in this series, this time we get Tyla's and Sebastian's rocky road to romance. Although we've met Tyla a few times in earlier books (Roped In, Turn of the Moon), we get the chance to learn more about her, and why she is so reluctant to be with her true mate, Sebastian.
A cryptic and chilling phone call from Tyla's cousin has her racing to North Carolina, with Sebastian accompanying her. Along with the devastation that is discovered, a few clues are revealed; but with each new revelation, there are another 74 questions unanswered. Tyla finally explains to Sebastian why she is so against the bond, but what bothered me is what made her decide to what do about that bond. I can understand her hesitancy, but it seemed like all of the sudden she's made her choice, almost as if someone flipped the light switch.
Sebastian is one helluva an alpha! He's all hot and intense and sexy and protective of his loved ones, but not the love 'em and leave 'em type like Tyla assumed he was.
Just when you think you've got the story figured out and the reason for all of the drama, the story adds one more element that puts a whole new spin on the book, one I wasn't prepared for, but it made the story that much more exciting. I'm hoping we'll get Sebastian's brother Zayne's story next, especially after the discovery that happened in this story.
