Coveted

Aiden is a seeker, she can track things, and people. She does this because she of her less than human abilities, which have gained her a stalker, who seems to have the uncanny knack of finding her, no matter where she goes. (Perhaps he too is a seeker?). Aiden is a werewolf who has been trapped and kept in a dungeon under a castle for months, his kidnappers want him to change into his wolf form so they can extract his blood, which is the key component in the latest designer drug. Unfortunately for Aiden, as a born not bitten werewolf, his blood is so powerful that the greedy dealers intend to drain him dry. So for months he has been resisting the urge to change, but getting weaker.

Shayla, hoped that taking a job in Scotland would put her well away from her stalker, then she finds Aiden, chained up in a dungeon, clearly not there by choice.

There was something about the style of the narrative that kept losing me. I'd go a few lines and realize that I'd missed bits of what was happening. There were also far too many misunderstandings between Shayla and Aiden, as the plot had plenty of other fodder to keep the story flowing; from stalkers, to drug dealing humans, and more. Though it was an understandable facet of the plot, that Aiden was hesitant about hoping that Shayla might be his mate, I found myself irritated that he and Shayla couldn't just lay their cards on the table and explain everything to each other. I was drawn into the story and certainly emotionally invested in the plot and characters. I would also be interested in anything else this author has written.
