Thursday, November 3, 2011

Running from a nightmare stalking her every move, Phoebe Martin arrives in Echo Falls hoping she has finally found a safe place to stop. But trouble has a way of catching up and soon the signs are there.

After a vicious attack in an alley, policeman Aidan O'Bryan is left with Phoebe as his only path to understanding why the Echo Falls werewolf pack - his pack - is being attacked. When another pack member is killed, Phoebe is forced to confront her past before she loses Aidan and everything she has come to love.

Love and duty become one as Aidan strives to prevent Phoebe from becoming the next victim. But with Phoebe just as determined to protect Aidan and her new home, secrets from her past threaten to tear them apart.

Will love give Phoebe the strength to trust Aidan and face her fears, or will her past destroy her future?

Goodreads Summary

This book takes the reader right into the thick of the action.  Phoebe, the main character, is running away from a certain evil who the reader will meet later on in the novel.  Phoebe is a tense, cautious, and slightly afraid main character.  She has every right to be though, the monster that chased her was the same monster that killed her brother.  Phoebe lives life carefully and always with a wary eye on the lookout.  When she runs into Aidan, a real alpha man, her life becomes even more confusing.  She has to deal with feelings she now has for a person she can't easily protect. 

Attacks by the mystery monster continue to happen, forcing Phoebe to come full circle and face her fears before she loses someone very special to her.  The reader will enjoy reading about the shifter scenes, the touch of paranormal makes the novel much more interesting than the average love story.  The love scenes are steamy and believable, integral in a novel with a romance edge.  The characters were worth reading about.  Phoebe has her flaws, but those serve to make her a more believable character.  Aidan is the handsome protector, he will be a huge draw to female readers.  The secondary characters are just as fun to get to know.  The ending is exciting and perfect for the novel.  The reader will be completely satisfied.  This book is recommended to adult readers who enjoy paranormal romance.
