Back Cover Blurb:
From the moment he was born, Nic Kagan’s future was sealed. He’ll accept a mate, have kids, and eventually take over his father’s role as pack alpha. There’s just one problem.
Long ago, his heart settled on Riley, the pack’s human doctor and honorary member. Except only half of him can have her. The other half—his wolf—won’t give a weak non-shifter female a second sniff.
No one—human or shifter—has left a mark on Riley’s soul like Nic. But with his father hospitalized, any hope things could work out between them is slipping away. Yet Riley understands something else about pack life. Power isn’t always a physical gift; love is just as strong. What she and Nic have is worth fighting for.
With rival threats mounting, Nic realizes he can’t simply turn his back on Riley. Though his wolf could tear his heart out for it, he must fight for what he wants before he loses his mate. His pack. Maybe even his sanity.
Warning: Contains a reluctant alpha with only one roadblock between his heart and the woman he loves—biology. And a woman who isn’t giving up on him, even if it means risking her life to fool Mother Nature.
The battle of wills between the main characters really stood out for me. Not only was this between each other, but within themselves, and within the pack as a whole. Nic’s duty clashes with his and Riley’s desires in a very explosive manner. Corrigan develops them on multiple levels, giving you a clear look into who they are and where they’re coming from. I also appreciate how Corrigan begins to develop the supporting cast of the series here. We don’t necessarily get to know them in-depth as individuals, but their loyalties and agendas definitely become apparent. They definitely draw you deeper into the series.
This was a very intriguing and captivating start to Corrigan’s new series. It was a hot & spicy read that I thoroughly enjoyed and has left me bated for the sequel.
