On his way home from a meeting of the North American werewolf council, Armand La Marche is stopped in his limousine by a boy who is hurt by an unknown assailant who murdered his friend. After decades of searching, Armand has found his mate. There is one problem, someone is trying to kill Sean.
Sean Quinn’s friend Leroy was gutted trying to protect him. He runs for help and stops the first car he sees.
Armand LaMarche is head Alpha of the North American werewolf council and was in his limousine on his way home to his Manhattan brownstone. When the wounded boy stops his car, Armand recognizes two things:the boy is part wolf, an Omega with a great gift, and he’s Armand’s mate. Now all Armand has to do is claim his mate and keep him safe from the murderer.
I will admit this one took me awhile to get into and sometimes Armand’s over the top possessive attitude would get on my nerves. It was just a little to much sometimes but other then that I thought this book was really good.
So Seth comes running out of Alley after almost being killed. Well he runs right up to Arman’s limo and starts pounding on the door for help. Well as soon as Armand scents his mate is Seth let me say he did not let him out of his sight again after that.
You get danger in this book and steam which was really good. But I am not sure how I feel about Seth’s character after this book because the way he just accepted everything so quickly was hard for me to wrap my head around to be honest.
So all together I did like this book even though some parts were a little annoying with Armand over possessive attitude and Seth’s easy acceptance of everything. I also did really like the way this author built this shifter world in this book.
What drew me to this book was werewolves in Manhattan. I usually read about them out west in or near the forest. So the idea of werewolves in a big city like Manhattan was very intriguing.
The plot line is incredible. Reminds me of a fairy tale of the Prince falling in love with a commoner. This time, though it’s a poor homeless young man who was kicked to the curb by his father being rescued by the Alpha.
The beginning of this book was a little difficult to read because of Armond being so 19th century formal in his speech and Sean being very quick to accept everything. Once you get into the middle of the book and after the wedding then everything just falls into place. The book greatly improves, the typos and such diminishes and the plot line accelerates and becomes really great. I love the ending as there was a lot of action and suspense and you never knew what was going to happen.
I would recommend this book as long as you can stick with it and know that it will get better and ignore the editorial mistakes. The plot line is really great and you won’t be disappointed.
