A love triangle is complicated enough, but when it involves a werewolf and a vampire, it can get downright scary.
Summer Gray Eagle's fate has always been tied to the immortal sisters, but in ways that she could never have imagined. College girls are dying in a series of bizarre murders. Summer is caught up in helping the police catch the killer when her girlhood crush shows up to take her home to her groom, and a prearranged marriage that she is set against. Summer has loved Anton since she was a young girl, and she is determined to entice him into falling in love with her long before she ever makes it to the altar.
Unfortunately, Summer runs into a number of problems. Anton just happens to be a werewolf, and she is about to become the obsession of a gorgeous but sinister vampire. Summer is about to enter a world of passion and danger that will change her life forever.
Wolves and Black Roses is the third book in the four book Immortal Destiny Series.

IT'S ALL CLEAR AS MUD
I've purchased the first 3 audio books in the series, and Wolves and Black Roses is my favorite - mostly because of the couple choice, Summer and Anton. They are a one big fire ball of female-male attraction at it's ripest, without the gore details. Summer is promised by her family to marry Anton's brother (I hope I can say this??) whom she has never even met. Anton is sent from the Outerlands to collect Summer and bring her home to marry his brother, but Summer has always been in love with Anton who is every woman's dream - the hunky, masculine, and towering powerful male who has the style, grace and power of a surreal wolf-man. Summer does her best to "tempt' Anton into being with her, and falling in love with her, but Anton tries his best to avoid her efforts at all costs. Summer is gorgeous, with long brown shiny flowing hair and the perfect assets and voice to match. Anton's long flowing blonde hair and emotional and sexual battle with Summer lends itself to a delicious, erotic overload (if your imagination in imagery is as vivid as mine!!) They both are strong willed and determined in their efforts to attract and detach themselves from the push and pull we call the intense 'mating game'.
All the while, Summer has two sisters who are equally beautiful, but in very different ways. Sarah is the firey red head with green eyes, and is a witch who can talk with the dead, and Nicole is more like you and I, street smart and sassy, and Kathrina is the youngest sister, the gothic hottie who is just learning of her own secret powers. It is these sisters destiny to come together and fight some bad vamps, focusing on the ancient vamps who want to start a war between the wolves and the vampires. There is something much more sinister going on in the story as it teases you along and beacons your intelligence to come forth and find out what it is (which I am certain will be found out in the final book).
Many secondary subjects are introduced. Summer can see dead people and changes into something quite unexpected to fend off her captor, which only "thrills" him at her transformation even more and makes him lust to own her in every imaginable way possible at any cost.
Black Roses has a great significance, and how they are threaded through the story is very interesting and romantic in the dark sense. It is sad to find out the Marius, Summers enchanting captor, has been seeking his revenge in vain, but oh how romantic the story is.
The narrators voices for Summer and Anton were really great and brought sooooo much to the heat of the characters. Destiny Landon (female narrator) totally seduces Anton and Lee James (male narrator) totally refuses her (only in the movies or in books I say! Even I was ready to 'be with' Summer during her very first attempt.) All of the accents and necessary passion and emotion were beautifully delivered in this audio book.
