The first novella in the Rogues Inc. Series.
Sinc can’t forgive…
Despite an early trauma Sinc, a leopard shifter, had made a good life for herself with the Rogues Inc. team—until the day her world exploded and everything she'd worked so hard for came crashing down around her. Now she has to start over, learn how to cope with a devastating injury, maybe even lose her hard-won place on the rogues team. Problem is, the former love of her life is back to haunt her, and old feelings are coming alive, despite the hurt she's lived with for the past twelve years. Opening her heart to Gabriel would be the worst idea ever.
Gabe can’t forget…
Gabe, the former heir to the alpha position in the corrupt Los Altos werewolf pack, could have done something to stop the tragedy that caused Sinc's injury, only his decision to do the right thing came too late. Now he's on the bottom rung of a new pack, fighting with every ounce of his strength to make a place for himself among strangers. When Sinc arrives to testify against the wolves who hurt her, Gabe yearns for a second chance with Sinc, even though he knows he doesn't deserve it.
And when the call goes out for a new alpha to head up a nearby territory, life gets complicated.
Content Warning: This book contains adult language and violence between supernatural characters.
I was just introduced to author. Gayle Parness and her shifter world and I am hooked. I was introduced to her world by Gabe and Sinc in A Stubborn Heart, which is the first book in the Rogues Inc. series which includes characters from the Rogue Shifter and Triad series. The World is well developed and inviting with lots of strong, compelling characters that I really want to get to know better so I will be visiting the previous series as soon as possible. Gabe and Sinc were captivating and their story was full of romance, passion, chemistry and suspense.
Gabe and Sinc had a very troubling past, so their romance is full of emotional turmoil that pulls the reader into their story as they work hard to overcome the past and move forward, but the journey forward is no picnic either due to the circumstances that the couple must endure. Sinc is a solid character that draws empathy from the readers as well as she strives to stabilize her world since the explosion. Note – the explosion took place in a previous book but I had no problem catching on to what was going on.
This fast paced story is full of thrills and suspense that gets the heart pumping and hanging on to the edge of their seats as these characters have to deal with heart breaking and disappointing but also cathartic issues before they heal and start a new chapter in their life. (Beware that the way the issues are solved is quite violent but to me well deserved). The story jumps ahead a bit as changes to Gabe and Sinc’s lives progress toward a hopefully bright future which also adds to the depth and the overall full view of this couples journey toward their happily ever after.
I was completely enthralled with A Stubborn Heart and Gayle Parness’s shifter world which she painted such vivid images of that I was easily able to picture the scenes and I eagerly awaiting the next book in this series.
