From the coffee shop setting where they meet to every destination after, you are sucked into Sadie’s world and are just as captivated by Noah as she is. For a paranormal there is more focus on the human side of these shifters than on their wolf counter parts, however it is still a good read.
The story line is easy to get into and you instantly start rooting for Sadie to find her mate and keep him. Noah is a man of action and his inner wolf demands to be satisfied, but will they do it in time?
You have to get through quite a bit of bad romantic encounters before you see the silver lining in this story. Personally I would have loved to read more of an actual shifter story with a focus on the wolves, however this being a romance story and not an action romance I can appreciate this as well.
For the romantic in us we will enjoy Sadie and Noah’s struggles and triumphs. We can even relate to the scorned advances and the struggle to be more than friends or just to hiding how we truly feel.
Sadie McCallister wants to find a mate and start a family, but the only man her wolf recognized as a potential mate rejected her nearly four years ago. To make matters worse, Noah follows her every move and his popularity with women is hard to ignore, especially when she can’t get another man to come within ten feet of her. Any hope of finding a mate seems foolish. When a summons from the council leaves her mated with Noah, she buries her feelings deep and resolves to live a life without love.
Noah Alexander recognized Sadie as his mate the moment they met. Their budding friendship occupied his every thought and he couldn’t wait to claim her and mark her as his. Unfortunately, tragedy and fear for her safety forced him to push her away, but he couldn’t stay very far. A summons from the council leads to a mating with the only woman he ever wanted, and the one woman he should never have.
In order to sustain the numbers of all mythical beings, the Council, the governing body of the Mythical Realm, intervened and found prosperous matches for several of their subjects. Rather than create an act of treason punishable by death, Sadie and Noah reluctantly agree to the mating, but hide their true feelings for one another. When Noah’s worst fear threatens to destroy their unstable union, he realizes his worries could have been prevented if he’d been honest with his mate. Now he must find Sadie before it’s too late, and prove his desire and love are worth claiming.
