Erin was tired of hiding her true nature. Bound by the secrets of her heritage, she found herself stuck between a rock and a hard wolf. When her secrets are unveiled all hell breaks loose.
Lucas Jansen’s plan for life was simple: Serve his pack, find a mate, and start a family.
Now that Lucas has found his mate the next step was claiming her. Or so he thought. Everything he believed is about to be turned upside down as ancient legends and a forbidden love push him toward a path of self-destruction.
His mate was everything he had ever wanted, and everything he had vowed to destroy.
L8dyknightkc 4.0 out of 5 stars Great book! Reviewed in the United States on December 2, 2017 Verified Purchase Erin is half wolf shifter and half witch that had to keep her witch side hidden from everyone. Her parents had moved a lot because her mother's twin sister did not agree with their relationship and she wants to be high priestess of the witch coven. She also wants to be very powerful so she tried to steal her mother's gifts. Erin and ger mother were able to hide their witch side being discovered bythe Black Paw Pack by wearing magical tokens that concealed it. Erin's powers were bided and she was not able to tell anyone that she's half witch or she would experience so much pain if she tries tell someone. Lucas is wolf shifter who also Rafe's Beta and he knows Erin is his fated mate but he doesn't understand why she fight him about it. Erin wants to tell him that she is half witch but she can't tell him or be feeling a lot of pain. She also tried of hiding her witch side and wants a mate that loves her no matter what. Her mother does help her remove the bidding spelled but Lucas doesn't take her new well. He has hatred toward witches since their pack were attacked by witches that killed his family. Erin just wants him accept her as she is but he is having trouble being open minded about there are good witches and bad witches just like there are bad shifters and good shifters. I really wanted to punch him the face or kichpk him sometime that he is being stupid toward Erin. Rafe's uncle is a council member that trying help repair a pack that had gone down hill but the abuser alpha had been killed by Rafe's mate. His sons are trying to get revenge on the Black Paw pack and their father's killer. Do they succesed their revenge or not? Does Lucas overcome his hatred toward witches and fully mates with Erin? You will have to read this book to find out more. I like Erin's personality and felt like I understood her and related with her. Erin and her mother had a strong bond but I wondered about her relationship with her father. I love to read more about the Black Paw pack and may be find out if Deacon ever get out his punishment or not.
Tabi Ann 5.0 out of 5 stars OMG!!! Perfection Reviewed in the United States on April 6, 2018 Verified Purchase I always love it when a book leaves me on the seat of my pants so bad that I can't help but read the book in one sitting. That is just what this author has done to me. This book covers everything it seems. Love, hate, prejudices, anger, and passion. You are given two mates that fight their connection and it's all based on prejudices of what they assume to be. No people are the same and this book shows you that. You can't help but cry for the feelings that Lucas is having one minute and then in the next you are wanting to beat him over the head. In the next moment you are feeling for Erin and understanding why she is feeling the way she is feeling and you agree with her about zapping her mate across the street. I promise this book will make you laugh and cry with the rollercoaster of emotions it sends you thru, but you will love the book in the end. Until Next Time... Tabi

This is book #2 in the Black Paw Series.
Even though Erin is Lucas Jansen's mate, she keeps him at a distance. She would like nothing better than to be his mate except she is hiding a secret and is trying to keep him safe. She's not only a wolf she is also a very powerful witch. Her mother Brenna is also a witch but has put a concealing spell on both of them so no one can scent that they are witches. Rafe's father let them stay with the Black Paw and after Brenna saved Rafe's life with her magic , he welcomed them there permanently, despite her being a witch. The Black Paw Clan was attacked by witches and Lucas lost his whole family and many others were killed. Lucas has a deep seated hatred of witches because of it. However, Lucas' wolf accepts Erin and knows she is also a witch but knows she's good and not evil. Will these two have an HEA? You'll have to read this for yourself to find out.
There is just so much going on in this story and a lot of suspense that keeps you on the edge of your seat! Once you start reading you won't be able to put it down until you finish. I absolutely loved this book and highly recommend it. You'll love Erin & Lucas as well as all of the other characters in the story.
