It would not be a shifter story by Delta James without a sexy alpha intent on marking and
knotting his fated mate. A mate who was so overwhelmed that she ran away and hunters
out to eliminate the entire shifter population.
From their first meeting, Jameson Sinclair affected Whitney Morrison’s equilibrium making
her melt into a puddle of submission. His rumble soothed her soul. Whitney may have run
from Jameson, but he had eyes protecting her until she was back in his arms. His dominance
stole her breath. How could she feel so out of control yet so safe. Jameson was out for
revenge when the hunters kidnapped Whitney. Her strength and resilience shone through
in the face of danger.
The sexual chemistry between Jameson and Whitney burned up the sheets. I was surprised
at how quickly Whitney accepted that Jameson was indeed a shifter. She was not scared by
the prospect of being marked. In fact, she was excited. Whitney was lush and full-bodied
like a fine wine. Jameson was dominant, protective, and expected to be obeyed. Whitney
soon learned over Jameson’s knees that he would not allow her to make derogatory
comments about herself. She was perfect as she was.

As a fan of Ms. Delta James' Wayward Mates series, there are many similarities in the storyline, two wolf shifters meeting, realizing they are fated mates, which she will fight, but never wins. But then, beyond how they come together, accept fate, and the relationship, the story is new. This new series, Tangled Vines, will also revolve around vineyards. With Jameson Sinclair and Whitney Morrison, he is the Alpha of Earthly Spirits Vineyard in Monterey, California, and she is human and an event planner in Chicago, Illinois.
I especially liked this one because I felt that Jameson paves the way for Whitney to come to California. He doesn't cause issues with her fiancé; he doesn't take away a job from someone else to offer her a position. Instead, he arranges solutions that work the best. The chemistry between Jameson and Whitney is undeniable, and for him, he knows immediately that she is his fated mate. I loved that, unlike many Alphas, he does not force her, he allows her to accept him, his dominance, giving him her surrender, and she wants to become his.
The story's plot will first have Whitney and Jameson meeting at the wine convention in Chicago. Whitney does a fantastic job with the conventions, and Jameson knows she will be a plus to the coastal wineries when he finally can lure her there. When she arrives at Earthly Spirits and twists her ankle and that is the start of him carrying her wherever she needs to go. While she doesn't understand the dizziness she feels, he knows immediately he has finally found her, his true-fated-mate, and he couldn't be happier.
Whitney: "You don't need to carry me, Mr. Sinclair. I'm too heavy."
Jameson: "Nonesense. And we've talked about how I feel about you putting yourself down. When did I become Mr. Sinclar? As I recall in Chicago, I was Jameson."
Whitney: "That should never have happened. It was completely unprofessional. Besides, I thought I'd be working with Leo."
Jameson: "It most definitely should have happened. And why on earth would I let Leo gobble you up when my appetite is so much more ravenous?"
"There was something odd about the way she could be furious and slightly afraid of him one moment, and in the next, she felt as though sitting in his lap with his arms wrapped around her was the safest, and only, place in the world she wanted to be."
Whitney: "What do you want from me?"
Jameson: "I don't want anything from you I want you—all of you."
Whitney: "I keep thinking I must be dreaming. That at any moment I'm going to wake up and be in my hotel room."
Jameson: "Why does it seem so difficult for you to believe me?"
Whitney: "Because men like you don't fall for women like me."
Jameson: "Intelligent, passionate men like me don't fall for beautiful, intelligent, wildly responsive, and spirited women like you? Since when?"
From a night in Chicago, where these two become lovers for a night—to misunderstandings the following day, it sets this tale into motion with Jameson paving the way to bring his mate to California and him. He doesn't force the vows; he actually lets her fall in love with him and then learns the truth about being a wolf shifter. He proves that he and his people are all dedicated to working together for the good of the pack—and that means seeing Jameson and Whitney together as fated-mates. Yes, she is disciplined, but she is loved even harder by him.
"Just relax and let me hold you. I'll take care of you, Whitney. You don't need to worry about anything. Everyone here is glad you've finally come home."
The story has the good, the bad, and the ugly. A cheater works perfect for Jameson to free Whitney—and a new beginning with a job location brings her to the coast of California. I liked how the relationship between Jameson and Whitney progresses. The story also has problems with the Hunters—which leads to kidnapping and danger.
Jameson: "I love you, Whitney. Why won't you believe?"
Whitney: "I do, Jameson. I love you too. I believe."
"My mate is a woman of rare courage and a ferocious spirit. I would expect nothing less."
Whitney: "Why is it you say the dirtiest things to me and make them sound so sensual and loving?"
Jameson: "Because they are. I want you geared to my voice, my touch. I love it when you tremble with desire, and I haven't even touched you yet."
Whitney: "I don't know why I believe you, but I do. I don't know why I don't care that there are things about you that should probably scare me to death, but they don't. It doesn't matter to me."
Jameson: "Will you agree to take your vows and become one with me?"
Whitney: "I’m not sure I ever had a real choice in the matter. Jameson?”
Jameson: “Yes, sweetheart?”
Whitney: “Again, something I never thought I’d hear myself say, but I want to be the one with you in all ways. I want to give myself to your completely.”
“He was so strong, so loving, so everything she’d ever needed.”
Whitney: “I want to be one with you.”
Jameson: “You already are. From the moment you were born, you’ve been one with me. We will be one in this lifetime and all those that follow.”
The story does have power exchange, male dominance, feisty females, who eventually learn submission is powerful. Again, there are explicit scenes and discipline.
“He wondered how he’d lived without her until now. It was as if all that had come before had been a pale imitation of the life that now lay before them.”
