In the previous book we read about Missy’s sister.  She was used in the scheme to get Missy to marry the Alpha’s brother of their old pack, so that the alpha could control Missy.  Things were done to Maggie then that changed her.  She hasn’t been able to shift or even really be around wolves for a long time.  Now that Missy is happily mated and even pregnant, Maggie comes for a visit. Her sister sends the welcome committee to get her.
One of them being the Granite Lake Beta, Erik.  And there’s an immediate recognition that passes thru between them.  They are mates.  Not sure if it’s because he’s described as this huge guy, or the fact that he can actually speak Russian, or maybe it’s because he’s actually really cute and funny… but I loved Erik.  Big and cuddly, hot and sensual, possessive and understanding.
Maggie on the other hand was a biiiiiiiiit whiny.  I understand that her personality and actions were probably appropriate for having gone through what she did and the problems she still goes through.  However, a heroine that normally cowers behind the hero is usually not my favorite one.
To add to this mix it is time for the Wolf Games, a series of competitions between neighboring packs.  Names are picked out of a hat to form the representing team and Erik and Maggie were chosen to go.  The games were fun, looking for the clues and using their team members and resources as best as they could.
Speaking of the Games, I cannot wait to read TJ’s book.  I adore his clumsy ass!  I was happy to see Erik make the others stop teasing him but also yelled at TJ for putting himself down.  The kid is brilliant and he deserves a place in the pack.

I can’t wait to see who’s up next!

About Vivian Arend

Vivian Arend in one word: Adventurous. In a sentence: Willing to try just about anything once. That wide-eyed attitude has taken her around North America, through parts of Europe, and into Central and South America, often with no running water.

Her optimistic outlook also meant that when challenged to write a book, she gave it a shot, and discovered creating worlds to play in was nearly as addictive as traveling the real one. Now a New York Times and USA bestselling author of over 30 novels and short stories in both contemporary and paranormal genres, Vivian continues to explore, write and otherwise keep herself well-entertained.

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
