You'd think they were flies instead of werewolves. Leif is watching his family fall to the mating urge and vows never to succumb. Then he scents his own mate and soon realizes his days are numbered. Fighting until the bitter end, he really has no choice. And after he submits to his fate, he realizes it's the best thing that ever happened to him.
Jaden is as average as you can get and has no illusions about her ability to attract men. When the hunky man buying ice cream kisses her senseless she is confused to say the least. What happens next is totally out of her realm of reality and she soon realizes her life will never be ordinary again. And if that wasn't enough there are even more surprises in store after the werewolf issue is dealt with.
I loved this latest addition to the Roxie's Protector's series. Leif talked the talk but when it came time to walk the line he was just like the rest of them. Nothing thrills me more than watching a big strong man fall in love. While these stories rely on the "fated mate" scenario it is also made clear that none of it would be possible if love weren't a factor. The relationships start with lust but soon turn into something real and lasting. Since they will be together thousands of years that's a good thing! Sexy and a little out of control, the pursuit and capture of Jaden by an unwilling Leif made for a great read. And the zinger at the end didn't hurt either.
Jaden notices the sexy hunk in her cashier’s line. But she knows, with her plain looks and glasses, he'd never notice her. So when he returns to the grocery store the next day and kisses her senseless in front of everyone, she can only hope she'll see him again.
Leif swears he will never be permanently mated, but when he feels his mate at a grocery store while buying pregnant Roxie ice cream, his world turns upside down. Drawn to his would-be mate, he finds fighting his mating urge is harder than he expects. If he can only hold out long enough to let nature run its course, he can get on with his life. But resisting her is impossible, and he needs to claim her as his.
