Instead, he’s a warrior, one whose suffering has led him to lock his heart away in a prison as cold and hard as a diamond, who fights to resist the bond and their deep attraction.

Far from home, with a soulmate who is still a stranger, Megan learns that the path to true love isn’t quite as straight and easy as she thought . . .

My Review:

I love a good PNR / shifter read, this blurb seemed a little different to the usual so decided to give it a go and see what happens. As I understand it, this is the author’s debut novel, which she did pretty well with for a first attempt.

Megan is looking for her mate, the one who is going to love, cherish and protect her, her own Prince Charming. James turns out to be far from Prince Charming – he is cold, aloof, rude and not in the least bit happy to have found his mate. Megan is taken home to Canada to live with his pack, such as it it, quite dysfunctional, not pack-like at all really. It turns out that this is a warrior pack and they have things to do, that Megan knows nothing about. James has secrets and a dark past and does not want to consummate his bond to Megan, who tries just giving him time and finding other things to do around the place.

The main story obviously centers around Megan and James and their lack of commitment to each other, or should I say James with his hang ups. You don’t get an awful lot of background about his past and the why’s about what happened, which needs expanding on really. This obviously makes it a slow burn of a relationship, with only one small amount of sexiness in this book.

Its a pretty good read with lots of promise in the story line, it just needs more to it, more background, more wolfiness – here’s hoping this will come in later books. But its worth giving this a go if PNR / romance is your thing.
