It’s been 6 long years since AJ Buckley walked free. A weekend in the city with his triplet brothers that was supposed to be a chance to sow some wild oats had turned deadly. The desperate cry of a woman had drawn them into an alley where a bloody scene greeted them. A small female was swinging a makeshift weapon at her attacker.
Rage gripped AJ as he tore the man’s body apart. His brothers aided him in the work. Turning to the woman, he commanded her to say nothing. Arrested by the police, he was tried for murder. Convicted, he was sentenced to 25 years to life. His Alpha, Toman, ordered his brothers home. The Alpha repudiated him and forbade his family to contact him.
After spending a year in jail for contempt, Vivian has dedicated herself to getting him freed. She hadn’t wanted to refuse to testify on AJ’s behalf, but his command kept her silent. During the last 5 years, she began to doubt her own sanity. More than once, she’d awaken to find herself in strange surroundings. She’d even gone so far as to attempt suicide. Thankfully she’d reached out to her court appointed psychologist for help. Now, at last her struggle to free AJ seemed to be working.
AJ has been freed on a technicality from prison. He thinks that his old Alpha, Toman, is planning to kill him on his return to Willow Bend. Little does he know that Mason has taken over the pack and has much different plans in store for him and Viviane.
I adored this book. I am having so much fun reading about the wolves of Willow Bend. The difficulty faced by AJ after having been unjustly imprisoned is handled well in this book. While you don’t have to read them in order, it does help!
