A jilted bride, a wolfishly sexy stranger, one sinful attraction under New Zealand’s sun.
When Katherine finds out her fiancé cheated on her, her heart is bruised. With a mission to get her life back on track, she takes the first flight to Auckland, New Zealand. And bumps heads with a sexy stranger. Their attraction is instant, powerful and undeniable. Taking a vacation from being a good girl, she succumbs to this sinful stranger who pushes the limits of her sexual needs as he explores every inch of her body. No strings of course.
Trent seduces her…in a bed, at the beach, in a truck, against the wall…until the wolf within him lifts its head and pays attention. Suddenly, after a tiny bite, it’s everything but no-strings.
After finding photos of her fiancé with another woman, Katherine is determined to become an independent woman. She breaks her engagement, turns down a job offer from her stepfather, and travels to New Zealand alone. She hasn't counted on meeting Trent and falling head over heels in love with him as soon as she steps off the plane.
Trent, a werewolf, is terrified that, if he takes a human mate, he will lose her just like he lost his mother. He is afraid to the point of trying to drive Katherine away in order to protect his heart. Fortunately, fate had other plans for the lovers. An incredible set of coincidences kept bringing Trent and Katherine together, and their intense mutual and overwhelming attraction to each other leaves them little choice but to fall in love.
Trent and Katherine were both believable and, for the most part, likeable characters. I loved the beautifully detailed descriptions of the New Zealand landscape, especially the black sand beaches. This story is a must read for true romantics everywhere. It just goes to show that happily ever after can come to you in the most unexpected ways.
