Ms. Royce has written another wonderful Westervelt book and I am drawn more and more into this series. She delivers a book that is intense, funny and smoking hot with bold, loveable characters that you can’t wait to read more about. I couldn't put this one down. As always, I am looking forward to the next book in this series.
Elizabeth Willow is a witch from a powerful coven that has been taken hostage by another witch. As the new coven leader steals the power from the witches to keep them weak, Elizabeth has been tasked to take care of the coven leader’s children and she has been horribly cursed.
Rex Kane has been tasked with finding a witch and returning them to Westervelt. The wolves need protect and aide from the diabolical witch who is assisting his father in his attacks on the island. As Rex locates a witch to drag back to the island he is shocked to realize that this particular witch is his mate and needs his help before she can contemplate helping his family.
As Elizabeth and Rex learn more about one another and they both learn more of their own past and destinies, they must try to work together and Rex must deal with the most painful of betrayals to attempt to save them all.
Rex Kane has always known he was different than his brothers, down to the fact that when he shifts into his wolf form, his coat is completely black. Always in trouble, he is given one more chance by his brother Tristan, the alpha of the Westervelt pack, to bring back to their island a witch who can stop some of the magical assault that has plagued their war-torn home. Rex knows he has one last chance to set things right. Everything depends on him and he cannot fail.
Elizabeth Willow has been cursed to look so repulsive no human eyes can bear to view her. Raised in a gentle coven of witches, she is ill prepared for the realities of the harsh world she now lives in. Raised to mistrust wolf-shifters as witch-killers, she cannot seem to help being drawn to Rex. Even if she doesn't believe she is his so-called mate. He can see her as she really is and is the first person to look her in the eyes in years. Although she is not naturally devious, she sees no choice but to use Rex to gain her own freedom and her family’s safety.
Together, Rex and Elizabeth will see just how evil the people around them can be. If they can trust their hearts, perhaps they will survive another night. If not, both of their battles will never be won.
