Elyse Wellston escapes from her brutal, violent ex-fiancé to a remote cabin in Australia. Fearing for her life, Elyse knows it doesn’t make sense for her to react the way she does upon meeting the enigmatic Dane Maddox.
Only when she discovers he is a werewolf and she is his weren—his mate and a werewolf herself—does she begin to understand the hot, sexual yearning within. No longer does she need to act out a desire she doesn’t feel. Dane is everything she wants. But will her ex end her happiness and her sexual fulfillment before it even has a chance to begin?
After escaping an ex-fiancé from hell, Elyse thinks she's going crazy when her body starts doing unexplainable and painful things. She doesn't know of the beast dwelling within waiting to break-free, but the tall, dark, and handsome stranger knows exactly what to do and who she is.
The action gets going right from the beginning and continues throughout in the form of either painful shifting, sizzling sex, or fighting the villain. The story has such great potential for more world building, so I was a bit disappointed. There seemed to be holes throughout the storyline that would've benefited had there been more depth since it felt as though this book were part of a series. However, I was riveted by the plot and the characters. The scene descriptions are very well done and provides easy imagery. The story may be short on length, but doesn't lack in enjoyment.
Any paranormal romance reader will devour this short fated love story and will absolutely be on the look-out for more from Ms. Teshco.
