This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers captures the heart and keeps readers on the edge of their seat with suspense, action, drama and romance. The author inspires vivid images that capture the imagination with well written scenes and details and the well orchestrated drama and suspense draw the reader deeper into the strong and compelling characters’ world.
Cleary has been Madalaina friend for a while now, but what’s happened to him shatters him especially as he has to give the space needs to heal, but this strong lion will do whatever it takes to be the mate she needs. The trauma that Madalaina suffers grabs a hold of the reader and causes quite a few tears throughout the story not only for the horror at the cruelty of some… well I have no words for what they are, but also because she not only survives, she manages to take back her life. Cleary and Mads passion may be simmering in the background to start off but when things start to heat up, it’s obvious that these two will make a great couple.
As Mads and Cleary’s story unfolds, the author also gives us glimpses of the major characters that are involved in this world adding depth and spice to the story and it also gives more info about the overall series plot as well. Despite the tears, I enjoyed the story and couldn’t put it down until I had read every last word and learned exactly how Cleary and Mads fared in their search for happiness and I can’t wait to read the next book.
