When Shyla Smith learns of her grandfather’s death, she travels to Hood River to put his estate in order. Shyla’s not thrilled with staying at his humble cabin in the middle of a forest, and when a welcoming committee of four wild wolves greets her at the front door, she all but runs back to New York City. Nothing could have prepared her for the secrets which were about to unfold.
Coal Demmering and Jacy Roddery are the spiritually appointed mates to Shyla. The problem? They need to convince a city woman she belonged with them in Hood River, she descends from a highly revered white wolf bloodline, and a rebel pack of wolves has her marked for death.
With Coal and Jacy filling her nights with passion and her days with danger, will Shyla finally submit to the call of her wild heart?
Shyla is the last of surviving member of the White Wolf Shifters. Her parents were murdered when she was a baby and for her protection, she’s been raised with “humans”. When her Grandfather dies, she comes to Hood River to settle his estate. Coal and Jacy are both Alpha Werewolf shifters, and best buds since they were pups. They’ve grown up with the knowledge that they would be Shyla’s mate. They’re not going to let Shyla leave now that she’s come home -- To bad, no one explained that to Shyla.
She’s very attracted to both Coal and Jacy, but feels conflicted with her emotional and sexual desires. Throw in the “shifter mate bonding” and it’s even stronger to harder for her to resist. Coal and Jacy grew up with the knowledge that they’d share their mate, they already have a strong rivalry, but the need to claim Shyla makes it harder for them to deal with each other and their shifter need to dominate Shyla.
The love scenes were spicy and very nicely done. For those of you who read “Shifter” books; Shayla’s first shift to a wolf was HOT. Kudos to Ms. Regales – it was a very creative twist on the same-o’-thing. I don’t have a lot of exposure to ménage plots, but Ms. Regale’s characters are well developed and you couldn’t help hoping that everything would work out for them in the end.
