Tangled Vines is a follow up series to Wayward Mates. All of the packs involved operate vineyards on the West Coast. There are quite a few references made to people and situations from Wayward Mates. The prequel, Harvest, is available for free by signing up for her newsletter.
When Hunters strike at the wrong prey, Damian Steele will stop at nothing to claim the ultimate prize… his fated mate.
On the backroads of Italy, a fatal accident takes the lives of three of the four people in the car. The only survivor is an unconscious Kinzie Edwards, who is mistakenly identified as her twin sister. In a targeted act of violence, Kinzie loses her sister, Kayla and her humanity.
Damian is the brooding Alpha of the Sonoma Pack and the head of the Luna de Lobo Vineyard on the California coast. When Hunters strike at his people, Damian rushes to Italy to care for the mate to his omega. Except it isn’t Kayla he brings home.
While Kinzie hovers between life and death, a powerful change within her DNA occurs and she wakes as a wolf. Kinzie knows nothing about wolf-shifters or fated mates, unlike her sister who had been a wolf-shifter.
Thirsting for answers and revenge, Kinzie leaves the safety of Damian’s embrace to confront those who murdered her sister. Can Damian reach her before the Hunters claim her as another trophy?.
Bookworm555 5.0 out of 5 stars Loved Karter and Ronan Reviewed in the United States on March 20, 2019 Verified Purchase After seeing Commander Karter in several books and watching him interact with Dara (Chloe, Seth, and Dorian's daughter), we have begged Grace for him to get a mate and she answered us with this great story. (To understand my review, I just want to put it out there, I read for story and could care less about the sexy times) This story drops us right into the middle of the Hive war, as mentioned in the previous books, the Battlegroup Karter is actively holding back the Hive in sector 437. Karter was tested years and years ago and has been too busy to have any thoughts of a bride. Ronan is also a Commander and is just as intense as Karter due to the heavy weight of responsibility demanded by their positions. Erica has always loved the stars and jumped at her chance to be among them, especially after her testing as part of a Prillon sandwich (her words, not mine). This story is told from all three POV and we get to see just how tortured Karter is and how much weight is on his very broad shoulders. I really loved Karter and Ronan and even though Erica is just a feisty as the other Interstellar Brides, I guess I just wasn't as impressed with her as I was with the other brides - she does love both of them and fights for a true mating but that's about it. BUT, Karter and Ronan make up for any deficiencies I felt Erica had. The new development in the war is a major game changer and the Coalition is going to have their hands full dealing with it. I love this series and while I have received advanced copies of these books (yes, I joined Grace's review team to get my hands on these books as soon as possible), I have purchased every single one. Purchasing these books and writing reviews so that others have a chance to discover this talented author's work is my way of supporting her and my habit 🙂
Sue B 5.0 out of 5 stars A really great read, impossible to put down once I started reading Reviewed in the United States on March 27, 2021 Kinzi had been waiting to see her identical twin sister Kayla and husband Evan for some time and now they were all together again the limo that had been sent to collect them and drive the around. Who would have thought that the laughter and the love she had seen and heard in her sister and the love of her life Evan’s eyes would be permanently changed and there was not a damn thing she could do to stop it from happening? When Damian had heard of the attack by the hunters and the death of his two packmates his vintner assistant and Kenzi and his Beta Evan. Imagine his surprise when he discovers that the woman, he found was Kinzi and that she is his Fated mate, unfortunately being close to death and already undergoing the change to wolf he has a lot of explaining to do if she survives the transgression fully. Damián has never been happier he has discovered his fated mate and now he has to explain to Kinzi what is happening to her body and also explain why her sister and her mate were killed as they were all travelling in Italy, unfortunately she has other ideas. When Damian discovers that his recently marked mate has made a run for it he is furious and also frustrated, when he discovers she is on the way to Italy he knows she is looking for the hunters and for retribution he knows her life is at risk. This is a wonderful read and it is simply wonderful to meet up again with Marco and Catherine in Italy along with Damian’s brother and his recently turned mate. This is a wonderful read and I guarantee that once you start reading you will not be able to put this book down until you reach the very last page. I voluntarily received and review an Advanced Reader Copy I thoroughly enjoyed the book and look forward to reading any future publications; keep up all the great writing.
