The child she must save…
The man who threatens to fulfill her every fantasy…
and break her heart.
Alpha wolf Ridge Addison left his wife in Las Vegas, vowing to put their one reckless night of passion behind him and return to his clan. Thirteen years later he needs a divorce so he can become pack leader. Yet he’s never forgotten the sensuous witch whose life he saved…or the knee-buckling kisses he still craves.
After they parted, Abigail tried banishing Ridge from her memory. Now her heart belongs only to her son. But when the boy is kidnapped, she knows she alone can’t save him. Though Abigail’s body still aches for Ridge, she’s willing to give him his freedom in exchange for his help. But who will shield her heart from the only man she’s ever let claim her, body and soul?
Michele Hauf has established herself as a writer of fantasy stories. I admit I downloaded a story of hers last year, but haven’t got around to reading it yet. This book was given to me by my neighbour, telling me it was a wonderful read.
Ridge (short for Richard) married a witch in a drunk Vegas spree, but fled when she zapped him after he turned into a wolf mid-sex. Abigail’s son has been kidnapped, and Ridge turns up with divorce papers at just the right time. She needs someone big and strong to help her out.
Having to rescue a vampire from Werewolf pit fights turns out to be more dangerous than they anticipated, especially when Abigail keeps jumping in to ‘defend’ Ridge. Do either of them realise that their actions are screaming to each other that they need each other?
While romances are generally about the love hate relationship between the male and female, for some reason, this one really frustrated me. I don’t know whether it was a good thing or not, but it seemed rather too obvious for me, and I couldn’t really relate to either party as to why they kept their love under wraps for so long.
If you like love stories, with werewolves, witches and vampires, you will enjoy this yarn.
