They say opposites attract and Kyla and Nick are no exception, but he's a cursed werewolf and she's the descendent in a long line of werewolf hunters. Kyla has every reason to hate werewolves; they robbed her of her parents and blighted her childhood. Nick is the epitome of the noble cursed loner, determined to avenge himself on the monster who murdered his wife and son centuries before, and convinced that he doesn't deserve happiness.
I did find the constant misunderstandings between the two main characters tiresome. They were clearly part of the universal romantic plot devise, but there were too many of them.
This book was entertaining and worth reading but would have been much better with less angst, from either of the main characters.
"What if you were honor bound to kill the man you love?"
Nick Radford is a reluctant werewolf who’s been fighting the Beast within for nearly 500 years. He’s never killed a human, but the Beast is gaining strength and Nick may not be able to ward off his inner demon much longer.
Kyla Yaeger is an elite were-hunter with a scarred past. Her life’s mission is to slay the werewolves that slaughtered her parents. Her quest has brought her to Maine, where she’s been summoned to destroy the werewolf terrorizing the quaint little village of Heavensent. The last thing she needs is to get distracted by her mysterious—not to mention hunky—new neighbor, Nick Radford.
By the time Kyla learns Nick is her target, she’s already fallen for him, making her task of killing him that much harder. She is torn between her love for him and her duty to kill her sworn enemy. Nick fights his forbidden love for Kyla, knowing she is duty-bound to kill him. Kyla and Nick must join forces to fight an even bigger threat—one that will destroy all humanity. Only by their combined powers, can they destroy the evil and bring an end to a centuries old curse.
