Harvest: Tangled Vines (prequel)
Xander and Stephanie
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.
Stephanie Savik is a human, turned wolf against her will, but she accepts what has happened after a year. She has lived under the protection of the DeMedici pack with Marco as her alpha. But, it is time for her to enter a new chapter in her life; training as a vintner, she is moving to California's wine country to work with Evan as an assistant vintner.
Alexander "Xander" Charles was under Damian Steele's command in the military, and when he sustained a life-threatening injury, Damian turned him to save him. Now, he is the Beta of the Luna de Lobo pack. He is also a Master at Torch Light, a BDSM club.
The story will have Stephanie traveling from Italy to California, planning to stay a day in the city, attending club Torch Light, and then on to her new position and pack. What a shock when she is getting settled in at Torch Light and in walks Master Alex—both know the feelings mean their 'fated mate' is nearby. Once Alex sees and talks with Stephanie, no one else will touch his mate—they agree to scene together, and no matter what Stephanie thinks she can manipulate, Alex is one step ahead of her.
"Are we negotiating, or do you just lay down what you want like the big bad wolf?"
"I do have eyes that see you better than most, and part of what I will require does involve my eating you up."
"Xander enjoyed her spirit. She was going to be a challenge, but then he liked a good challenge, especially one that had her figure and whose arousal smelled as sweet as hers did. "I'm going to ask you one last time for your safeword. If I don't get it, I'll assume you have none. You should know, little wolf," he whispered, "I can feel the same thing and mean to claim you as mine. Watch how you speak to me, mate."
"You're awfully confident for a Dom who knows nothing about me."
"I know everything I need to know. You are my fated mate, and you will take your vows to me—one way or another. Mine is the last voice you will hear before succumbing to me."
OMG, I love the angst, the chemistry, the erotic passion between Stephanie and Xander. While this wasn't something she wanted, she also has been around others and knows that "fated-mates" are not something that can be denied or ignored—she knows that they are fated mates and fight it or not, she won't win—so she accepts the fact and enjoys the ride.
"One of the things I learned from what happened to me was that nothing in life is certain and that when something good comes along, you have to grab it with both hands and hang on."
The story is a fast-paced tale, a spin-off from the Wayward Mates series, and has several people from that series. It also will take place in America but will have ties with Europe. There is trouble brewing, Hunters coming, and she-wolves are the target. I can't wait for the next book out later this month.

Corked: Tangled Vines
LINC AND GRACE
As a fan of Ms. Delta James' Wayward Mates series, there are many similarities in the storyline, but this one will involve a human and a wolf. Lincoln Steele is an Alpha, but not over a pack—yet, not a lone wolf. When he meets Grace Marlow, not only is he impressed with her credentials as a chef, he learns she is also a submissive and wants to play at Torch Light—she is his fated mate. Grace is human, and that isn't going to stop Linc—he will wine and dine her and win her over.
This new series, Tangled Vines, will also revolve around vineyards, and in this story, it will have Grace applying to be executive chef for both Lobo Bahia and Torch Light for the Steele brothers.
Linc: "I think I've found our head chef. She's human. She's also my fated mate. No admonition that I should seek another—that turning a human needs her consent and is not for the faint of heart."
Damian: "Look, Linc, consent can be interpreted in many ways. Most of the best pack mistresses had to be persuaded to one degree or another—Skylar Grainger, Catherine DeMedici, Riley Nichols. Then go get your mate, little brother."
Linc and Grace will conclude their business with him, making her an offer, and she will accept; then later, she will meet him at Torch Light. Linc puts the word out that no other Dom will be involved with her—she is his. They will scene together, which is detailed in the story, and then he takes her home.
The chemistry between these two is instant for both of them. Not only do they pair up well as Dom and sub, but as a couple. But, then there is the danger of the Hunters, and before Linc has a chance to wine and dine her, to win her over, she is kidnapped so that they can destroy him. So the story has plenty of angst, danger, along with passion and romance. There are the D/s between them, but also a spanking scene and intense sex scenes. Unlike some fated mates, Grace learns what fated mates mean and what will take place, and she is willing to accept his claim and make her vows.
"Oooh, great sex and courting. I may have hit the jackpot. Careful big guy, I could fall hard for you. I feel like I've been waiting for you my whole life."
"I feel the same way about you, Butter?"

DAMIAN AND KINZIE
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.
Kinzie Edwards lives in Paris is a freelance reporter for various food and wine publications. She has gone to Florence, Italy, to meet her sister and brother-in-law, Kayla and Evan, and then travel to DeMedici villa. Kinzie and Kayla are identical twins—but one is now a she-wolf, and the other does not know. As they travel, their driver notices something is wrong with the car and instructs them to prepare to jump when he gives them the signal.
"One moment she'd been happy, talking to the driver, the road safe, the day sunny. All of that was shattered when she'd heard Kayla scream and an ear-splitting blast echoed all around her. In that fraction of a second, her world was torn apart."
When Damian and the Luna de Lobo pack are informed that Evan and Kayla did not make it to their destination, the driver and car not found he will immediately head to Italy. Arriving, he feels a call, a pull, and with a helicopter team, he sees the blast site. What appeared to be his two friends, Evan and Kayla, another woman, is unrecognizable. But when he hears a moan, he realizes that 'Kayla' is still alive and a medical team brought in. Damian is called to Kayla—but that is odd; he's known her for years and never felt this way. During her recovery—he will not leave her and eventually returns her to their pack.
"Her soul recognized his in a way she'd dismissed when her sister proclaimed Evan to be her soul mate. Whoever this man was, he provided her a tenuous hold onto her life and eased her suffering."
The plot of this story is heart-wrenching as death comes to not one but two packs. To learn that Kinzie survived and, in many ways, Evan saved her life before dying. Damian has now met and claimed his fated-mate, but she wants nothing to do with him or his claim.
"She briefly wondered how she'd fallen through the looking glass and what might lie on the other side."
"I am your lord and alpha. My word is law for you and the rest of our pack. I miss them, too. I can't imagine what it must be like to lose a twin. Then to wake up after a horrible attack to find your DNA has been over-written without your knowledge, and you're called to a fated mate, a concept completely foreign to you."
The story is a fast-paced tale, a spin-off from the Wayward Mates series, and has several people from that series. It also will take place in America and Europe. There is trouble brewing, Hunters attacking, and she-wolves are the target. Kinzie will come face-to-face with danger, fights off one attacker, and has words with another Hunter.
I love the angst, the chemistry, the erotic passion between Damian and Kinzie. While this wasn't something she wanted, and new to her, she knows how Evan and Kayla were soul-mates and learns that "fated-mates" are not something that can be denied or ignored—she knows that they are fated mates and fight it or not, she won't win—so eventually she'll accept the fact and enjoys the ride—but not before she goes on a merry chase.
"Kinzie knew this wasn't lovemaking; there would be time enough for that later. Right now, she understood his need to dominate her, to ensure she acquiesced and submitted to him in all things."
"I had a very wise woman point out to me that happiness was standing right in front of me if only I had the courage to reach out and take it."
The good, the bad, and the ugly play their roles. Kinzie must accept that her life has changed, her DNA has changed, her sister is gone, but she has a new life and happiness to be found, if she will only open her heart and soul. Damian held out for a fated-mate and will do whatever it takes to keep her and make her happy. The hunters are bold, and now they have a few names and faces to add to their intel.
"You old flame is about to find out what happens when a Hunter becomes one of the hunted."
The story does have power exchange, male dominance, feisty females, who eventually learn submission is powerful. There are explicit scenes and discipline. While the story does not end on a cliffhanger, it does give us insight into the next book.

HUDSON AND SHASTA
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.
Shasta Warren, daughter of Artemis Warren, sent her to Sonoma Pack because he was tired of dealing with her. She has earned a reputation of being difficult, but Xander Charles, from Sonoma, shows her kindness compared to her father's Beta. When she goes to the Sonoma Pack, she is a bitter she-wolf, uncooperative, but she isn't mistreated.
Hudson Rhodes has recently ended his military time as a Navy SEAL and is ready to take his rightful place as Alpha of Coronado—removing his older brother, Miles, and his mate, Chelsea. After he sets things right again, he will be going to Damian's for a meeting of other Alphas to discuss the issues with the hunters. What a surprise when he arrives and can smell her—his fated mate.
"Hudson had finally found her. His fated mate was here."
The plot begins with a group of Alphas coming together at Sonoma Pack and having Shasta use their businesses to attempt to make her escape. She may get away on Zeus, Damian's stallion, but once Hudson catches her sent, he is in pursuit, going a different route provided to claim his fated mate. The story has plenty of angst, action, adventure, mystery, suspense, and danger. Before Hudson can claim Shasta, they will come under attack by Hunters, and he is injured helping her escape. Shasta will direct others to his location, and while she might be able to slip away, she doesn't; she waits for Hudson—for the medics—and then must decide her future.
"I'm not afraid of the big bad wolf because I am one."
"I won't be playing. When being punished, your likes are not high on my list of concerns. I'm going to take fiendish delight in the way I deliciously discipline you."
"But who will save you from me? And will I be safe there"
"Always, my fierce, beautiful, courageous fated mate. Always."
The good, the bad, and the ugly play their roles. While Shasta would rather be by herself, a lone she-wolf, especially with the danger of the Hunters, is foolish. There is something about Hudson that calls to her, she watched him risk his life to save hers, and he treats her well. But that isn't enough for her to slip away while he is recovering—or him to come to NOLA and find her. The Hunters are becoming more brazen, and the risk is high—but maybe, just maybe, Shasta will be able to convince one of them that they are being played.
"I once thought I wanted no wolf at all. But a wise friend once told me that when happiness with your fated mate presents itself, you are a fool to turn away." –Darby
"Shasta, I want you to know that not only do I recognize the gift you gave me, but I will cherish it always."
"I'm thankful to have a mate who knows me so well, but still chooses to be with me."
"I have no choice, but even if I did, I would always choose to love you and call you mine."
The story does have power exchange, male dominance, feisty females, who eventually learn submission is powerful. There are explicit scenes and discipline. While this story does not end on a cliffhanger, several people mentioned in it will have their own story next.

Set includes:

Harvest (prequel 1 never previously published)
'Harvest' is the first prequel in Delta James' new series "Tangled Vines" and if the rest of the series is as good as this book, then I just know it's going to be one heck of a ride! We immediately start with a scene where Stephanie and her sister were being chased by so many they finally split up thinking that would help. Stephanie wound up being chased by three men and two wolves into the dead-end of an alley. Just when it came to the climax of the scenario Stephanie wakes up. Was it a dream or her reliving a memory? Remember this is a quick, easy read prequel so I don't want to give away too much. Both women are members of the DeMedici pack in Tuscany and Stephanie has been hired as the assistant vintner for the Luna de Lobo pack in San Francisco which also gave her a new pack of family and alpha. Making the move has given her WAY more than she bargained or anticipated. All she was going to do was go to the local BDSM club for some stress relief before checking in with the new alpha. Instead, to her dismay, she meets her fated mate! I loved the book and can't wait for what promises to be a phenomenal series!

Corked (prequel 2)
Grace had won an international cooking contest last year and after a year of working at Michelin star restaurants for additional experience and reputation, she's been offered the position of head chef at Lobo Bahia hotel and Torch Light, a BDSM club. Both were owned by Damian Steele, Alpha of the Sonoma Pack and head of the Luna de Lobo Vineyard in San Francisco, along with his younger brother Lincoln, aka Linc. Wonderful news, huh? Just two small problems with that statement. First, Grace is human and has no idea what the Steele brothers are. Second, while Damian is the romance between them and has always been looking and waiting for his fated mate, Linc has always believed fated mates were a myth that was used to coerce fractious she-wolves into pairings. Until he met and interviewed Grace. And lo and behold, it turned out it wasn't a myth after all. Grace was his fated mate. It gets a little more complicated when you add the fact that Linc had a tough time reintegrating himself into civilian life after he left Delta Force and encountered Hunters. They're a group of humans who knew of the existence of wolf-shifters and are dedicated to exterminating wolf-shifters. Ever since it has been Linc's mission to turn the tables on the Hunters and make them the hunted. He had already gone rogue at one point but Damian was afraid he'd go completely feral. That's why he introduced Linc to a BDSM club and that's where Linc found peace, pleasure, and the self-control he'd been missing since leaving Delta Force. This short, second prequel in the Tangle Vine series is as captivating as the first one and only makes me want the first book sooner

Uncorked
I, plus I'm sure so many others have been anticipating this book with patience I didn't realize I had and Delta James has delivered in spades! 'Uncorked' is the first book in her "Tangled Vines" series. If you've read the prequels or even just the blurb then you'll know there is an evil entity out there. The Hunters seem to be organizing in their quest to exterminate wolf-shifters. Kinzie, her twin sister Kayla, and Kayla's mate Evan were going to meet and visit the DeMedici Pack. On the way from the airport, a bomb had gone off, blowing up the car and throwing the driver and three passengers, ultimately killing all but Kinzie. There's a great deal of confusion because few know Kayla had a sister and even fewer knew she was an identical twin. So much intensity is displayed, whether it was loyalty, anger, fear, chemistry, or love amongst these characters. Then you have the intrigue and suspense of what's around the corner and what the Hunters are planning. I couldn't be more pleased with the start of this series and am highly anticipating the next book. Now if I can just wait without fidgeting.

Decanted
'Decanted' is Delta James's second book in her "Tangled Vines" series. That being said, if you haven't started it yet you have no idea what you're missing. This storyline starts off running and doesn't stop until the end of the book. Hudson was a Navy SEAL and just took his unit through their last mission before returning home to Colorado where he intends to reclaim his land and pack from his elder brother and his mate. After being used for his own personal gain, Shasta's father has kicked her out of the pack and sent to the Sonoma pack. Shasta has had enough and has decided she is not going to be an Alpha's mate and plaything. She's an Alpha in her own right and intends to keep her freedom at all costs. The rollercoaster of events and emotions as these two come together is riveting. The tension is explosive, both inside and out of the bedroom. Add in the fact that The Hunters have amped up their game and killed several of Hunter's pack alone, not counting the deaths from other packs and I found myself completely engulfed in this book. I can't wait to see what happens in book three, 'Breathe'.

This was so good. I am not going to lie a few times I was close to tears. To be separated from your fated mate for so long. Delta thank you for using a older she-Wolf in your book. Notice I said older not old. Reading about Char makes me feel young. Daniel was a very patient and loving mate all those years and he never lost hope. This was truly a great read.

This was the most emotional of all of the books in this series for me when fated mates
were torn apart without a thought for their happiness. I admired Charlotte’s resilience
and the length she went through to keep her fated mate plus her son safe. Daniel never
gave up on a future with Char and his son. He had no choice but to let them go, but
nothing was stopping him from claiming Char now that she was free from a loveless
marriage. Char tried to resist Daniel, but he was like a wildfire that threatened to
consume her. Char realized that Daniel and Raphaêl were as different as night and day.
Daniel respected her opinions while Raphaêl had been harsh and demanding, but she
was not prepared to be vulnerable again.

This was an entertaining story filled with action, danger, sizzling sex scenes, and just the
right amount of spankings. I enjoyed the inclusions of the characters from previous books.
The women continued to defy their men and wreck damage on their enemies. At the core
of it this was a true love story.

Reviewed in the United States on September 9, 2021
It was a pleasure to read this suspenseful second-chance shifter romance & it will definitely capture the reader’s attention. The plot is well-written & has extremely good world building, with intense, emotional scenes. The main characters have interesting back-stories and one of them (a alpha male wolf, Daniel) was absolutely determined & stopped at nothing in order to finally claim his mate (Charlotte aka Char)
There is: wolf shifters, hunters, action, adventure, fated mates, twists & turns, intrigue, suspense, family/pack issues, deceit, betrayal, conspiracies, blackmail, vengeful feelings, conflict, danger, threats, retribution, defiance, discipline, spankings, domination/submission, contentment, steamy scenes, love & a well-deserved, satisfying conclusion for this couple. I honestly enjoyed reading this shifter romance & would recommend this shifter romance & the series to people who enjoy reading this genre.

Don’t be surprised if you find yourself needing to refresh your memory with this one. So many of our favorite couples make an appearance in this one. It really makes it enjoyable to see the continuity from one story to the next.

It should be easy when the Alpha of Otter Crest decides to claim his fated mate.
The only problem is… she’s hunting him.

Ethan Storm had survived more dangerous missions than most men. It was only after he was mugged and his life hung in the balance that he was turned by one of his men.

Returning home, Ethan had hoped to be able to resume his relationship with the love of his life, Marissa Prentiss.

The only problem is that with the exception of her sister, Marissa’s family has become entrenched with those that hunt the wolf-shifters. When her sister is murdered, Marissa joins the Hunters and vows to end those of Ethan’s kind.

When new information regarding her sister’s death comes to light, can Marissa bring the real villains to justice and find her own happily ever after with the only man she ever loved?

Marissa intends to destroy the lives of the men who had raped and murdered her sister, including their father. Erin, her sister, was a wolf shifter and she was killed by a group of Hunters, who want to destroy all shifters. Of course, the men of the wolf packs decide that she needs to be rescued. Marissa doesn't need to be rescued, she wants to be left alone to finish her retribution. But, Ethan Storm is a past love and when he was made a wolf shifter to save his life, he realized then that Marissa was his fated mate. Six years later, he finally decides that he needs to claim her. The result is a very entertaining story.

Delta James is one of my favorite authors. I really enjoy the stories she writes about shifters. I can't wait for the next two books in this series.

When she goes to the Sonoma Pack, she is a bitter she-wolf, uncooperative, but she isn't mistreated.

Hudson Rhodes has recently ended his military time as a Navy SEAL and is ready to take his rightful place as Alpha of Coronado—removing his older brother, Miles, and his mate, Chelsea. After he sets things right again, he will be going to Damian's for a meeting of other Alphas to discuss the issues with the hunters. What a surprise when he arrives and can smell her—his fated mate.

"Hudson had finally found her. His fated mate was here."

The plot begins with a group of Alphas coming together at Sonoma Pack and having Shasta use their businesses to attempt to make her escape. She may get away on Zeus, Damian's stallion, but once Hudson catches her sent, he is in pursuit, going a different route provided to claim his fated mate. The story has plenty of angst, action, adventure, mystery, suspense, and danger. Before Hudson can claim Shasta, they will come under attack by Hunters, and he is injured helping her escape. Shasta will direct others to his location, and while she might be able to slip away, she doesn't; she waits for Hudson—for the medics—and then must decide her future.

"I’m not afraid of the big bad wolf because I am one.”
“I won’t be playing. When being punished, your likes are not high on my list of concerns. I’m going to take fiendish delight in the way I deliciously discipline you.”
“But who will save you from me? And will I be safe there”
“Always, my fierce, beautiful, courageous fated mate. Always.”

The good, the bad, and the ugly play their roles. While Shasta would rather be by herself, a lone she-wolf, especially with the danger of the Hunters, is foolish. There is something about Hudson that calls to her, she watched him risk his life to save hers, and he treats her well. But that isn’t enough for her to slip away while he is recovering—or him to come to NOLA and find her. The Hunters are becoming more brazen, and the risk is high—but maybe, just maybe, Shasta will be able to convince one of them that they are being played.

“I once thought I wanted no wolf at all. But a wise friend once told me that when happiness with your fated mate presents itself, you are a fool to turn away.” –Darby

“Shasta, I want you to know that not only do I recognize the gift you gave me, but I will cherish it always.”
“I’m thankful to have a mate who knows me so well, but still chooses to be with me.”
“I have no choice, but even if I did, I would always choose to love you and call you mine.”

The story does have power exchange, male dominance, feisty females, who eventually learn submission is powerful. There are explicit scenes and discipline. While this story does not end on a cliffhanger, several people mentioned in it will have their own story next.

Another wonderful read by this author! Hudson and Shasta balance each other out perfectly. He is an alpha and protective and dominant whilst she is sassy, bratty and willful. Shasta has been a thorn in the side of her Alpha. When Hudson shows up at her pack wanting to discuss the Coronado Vineyard he declares her his mate and let the games begin. The Hunters are becoming more and more bold, what will happen when Hudson is attacked by said Hunters? Will Shasta come to his aide? After she disappears will Hudson track his wayward mate down?

5.0 out of 5 stars Tension, steam and danger
Reviewed in the United States on May 6, 2021
This book easily swept me up into its captivating storyline. The combination of emotion, drama and action is potent and consuming. Shasta and Hudson were amazing characters that really deliver a rock solid one-two punch right to your heart. Shasta was feisty and so easy to feel for and Hunter will have you swooning with his hot intensity and alpha tendencies. Tension, steam and danger keep you on the edge of your seat while being bombarded with heat and excitement. This is my elective, candid review.

Uncorked: Tangled Vines

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?.

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 🙂

5.0 out of 5 stars A really great read, impossible to put down once I started reading

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.
