Life happens when you least expect it...

Carol Scott has everything planned. She'll finish her studies, do her internship, and return to Refuge to help run the medical center being built by her pack, The Ravens. When the time is right, she'll choose a male of her pack to mate with, push out a few pups, and life will continue--nice, neat, and orderly, just the way she likes it.

Then she meets Mark Johnson--sexy, handsome...human. Forbidden. A man who won't take no for an answer. He stirs her senses and even has her wolf sitting up and paying attention. What's a girl to do? Obey the rules or follow her heart and damn the consequences?

Then the choice is taken out of her hands.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content and graphic language.


I enjoyed reading this story because it was quick, entertaining and fast paced. The story centers around Carol, a college student who also happens to be a shifter. Carol has a seemingly good plan to finish school and return to her pack, the Ravens, but as things unfold in this novella, her plan begins to unravel.

Why? The answer is always a man. A man and a forbidden love.

The writer gets to the good stuff right off the bat, a fact that all readers can appreciate. The main character is likeable and Mark Johnson is very, very sexy. I liked the forbidden love angle and the sexual danger; this added to the sex scenes that are very well written by the way. The ending came as a surprise to me and it was a nice little twist.

I would read it again and you probably will too. Short and sweet in a naughty way.
