Publisher's Summary

Nikki Calhoun is on the run, fueled by terror of the shadowy world she had married into. Desperate to survive and nowhere to hide, Nikki turns to the wolf-shifter pack of her childhood, but it’s hard for her to trust anyone, even the people closest to her.

Enforcer and bear-shifter Bret Axel receives a call from his cousin who manages his Portland nightclub about suspicious activity. After obtaining the approval of his Alpha, he travels to Portland. Two nights later, screams of a woman shatter the silence of the dock and with the help of his cousin, they save her from being killed.

In this twisted tale of hunter and prey, two worlds collide as Bret falls for the human and then struggles to convince her that they are meant to be together. It’s up to him and the Crescent Ice Pack to get to the bottom of the brutal acts of one man. Will Nikki survive the wrath of her estranged husband, or will the murky world of Edward Calhoun destroy her and any who try to help?

Strong, Steamy Sequel!

This is the second book in the Vendetta series, by author Desiree L. Scott. Once again, Ms. Scott has woven a story around characters whose loyalty, bravery, and compassion run deep. This story follows Bret Axle, a bear shifter loyal to the werewolves of the Crescent Ice Pack. A series of events leads him to bring Nikki Calhoun (an abused and traumatized woman) under his protection. A sweet romance blossoms between them as danger creeps ever closer. Though part of a series, this book can stand on its own, without needing to read Crescent Vendetta, first (although I highly recommend it, too). My one complaint is simply that some of the descriptions of violence were a bit off-putting. Nikki's husband is a vile cretin. I got it. I don't need such disturbing imagery to establish him as an irredeemable bad guy. That said, I really like how Ms. Scott only lets the chivalry go so far in her books. She understands the importance of letting the female character/victim exact justice by her own merit. She doesn't let the muscled hunks take the bad guys down. Rebecca Winder was the narrator again for this book, and did an excellent job. This book had more sex scenes in it than Crescent Vendetta, and they were really steamy! I liked the narrator's delivery a lot!

Shifters Protecting Those They Love Against Evil Men

A dead body hitting the floor and Nikki hiding under covers..Abused by her mob husband for 10 years she is beaten down..but she knows her time is up..he killed his first wife and she has a premonition she will be killed soon.
She sneaks away drugging him, alls a friend(who is a shifter and who was a close friend 10 yrs prior), but is saved by Brett and Zak, members of her friends pack..Brett a bear as an enforcer in a pack of wolves.
This is the second book in the series with the alpha and his mate the focus of the first book. They can be read separately, but enjoy the first as well.
The writing draws you into the horror of Nikki’s husband and the tenderness and protectiveness of the pack and Brett who soon recognizes Nikki as his mate.
The narrator did a fantastic job with the voice..Nikki’s soft and injured voice and the power in the males..evil for her husband.
Enjoy an action packed and romantic story!

Great listen

This was a great shifter audio. the main character had his loyalties tested and showed what fabric he was made of. The author drew you into the world and kept you wanting more. The narrator did a fantastic job of bringing the characters to life and keeping you wanting to hear more. I was given a free copy of this audio in return for an unbiased review.

Bear’s Shadow

"This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review”

I loved this book. I am a huge fan of shifter books and this one is awesome. The start of the book with the variance of what a normal pack is sucked me in right off the bat! Highly recommend this book.
