Secret McQueen is back and is taking no prisoners in her latest adventure. For those already familiar with Secret McQueen, she is half vampire, half werewolf, and always in trouble in one way or another. Now, after more rogue vampire assassinations than she can remember, as well as a whole entanglement in werewolf royalty, now dear Secret may very well be in way over her pretty head. A mystery assassin is hot on her trail, vampire politics is wreaking havoc on her life and the lives of those she loves, and her boyfriends, both werewolves, want her to make a decision and choose one of them. When that choice is taken away from her, can Secret save her heart from breaking, stop an assassin bent on her destruction, and still save her werewolf family and vampire family while still keeping them all separate? Oh, and survive her wedding and the ensuing catastrophe? If anyone could pull it all off, Secret McQueen can.
The novels of Secret McQueen are all laugh out loud funny with a healthy dose of charm and love, and just enough trouble to leave a few questions to carry over into the next novel. This novel, the fourth in the series, is quite easily keeping up the tradition of the previous novels, and this is a fantastic addition to the storyline. Secret aficionados will adore this novel and like myself, will be unable to put it down.
Something old, something blue, something deadly…what else is new?
It’s a nice day for a white wedding. At least that’s what Secret McQueen is hoping for, with her poofy-princess-dress marriage to a werewolf king looming closer and closer by the day. But as ever, nothing can be that easy for a vampire/werewolf hybrid for whom someone still harbors a death wish.
Summoned to the south by her werewolf uncle, who makes no bones about the fact her mate bond with Lucas doesn’t pass muster, Secret learns her furry heritage looks more like a tangled vine than a family tree. Getting her royal uncle’s blessing hinges on finding one of the missing twigs. Even with vampire sentry Holden Chancery at her side, she manages to land up to her neck in a swamp of trouble.
As an assassin’s scope zeroes in, family dramas boil up and a fast-collapsing love square threatens to bury her alive, making it to the church on time could be the least of Secret’s problems.
Warning: Contains a grumpy bride who shouldn’t be wearing wedding white, a motley crew of bridesmaids, a dangerous scenic drive in the woods and a smoking-hot trio of suitors who might be too scorching to touch.
