I am a fan of Marisa Chenery's werewolves. She seems to churn them out regularly. My only problem with this novella was that it didn't allow the characters the time to get to know each other. We realize that the mate bond meant that poor Kiel couldn't keep his paws off his mate, but the fact that he had to explain that he wasn't human should have given him ample reason for restraint, and meant that the readers were robbed of watching their love develop. Could we really believe that in such a short space of time that anyone could accept the existence of werewolves and give up a career when you are a fairly ambitious person?
I enjoyed this book but I wasn't 'feeling' it.
Born a wolf able to take on human form, Kiel loves the freedom of the mountainous forests on his family’s lands. But his life is about to change as the mate brand appears on his skin, which sets off a countdown. He has a short time to find and claim his mate before he loses his humanity for good. Expecting her to be a wolf shifter like him, a chance encounter with a human woman shows she’s the one meant for him.
As a model, Neha had seen a lot of good-looking men, but Kiel took her breath away at first sight, while his intoxicating scent had her body going into overdrive. Only passing through, circumstances happen that have her staying longer than she intended, and gives her the chance to let nature take its course.
With time ticking away, Kiel takes steps to bind Neha to him, and gives in to his wild craving. Once claimed, he must keep his mate at his side or face a lifetime of loneliness.
