This book has it all! Ancient Enemies. Powerful Rivalries. Red Hot Lovers.
Bears and wolves have been enemies since the dawn of time. But in the town of Black Salmon Falls, a truce - fragile though it may be - has been in place for more than a century, keeping the peace between Wolf Packs and Bear Clans.
Jackson is the strongest warrior in his Clan and serves as the Sword of his Chief. To him, loyalty and duty are everything.
Neesa is the most feared fighter among the Wolf Packs. But she's also a woman who's fiercely independent and unafraid to speak her mind.
Both serve their masters and serve them well. But both also secretly long for more in this life. And in each other, they surprisingly find a kindred spirit - and perhaps, something more.
When an ancient enemy surfaces that threatens to wipe out both bear and wolf alike, Jackson and Neesa find themselves in the fight of their lives. A fight with the survival of their people as well as the new life they hope to build hanging in the balance.
Loyalty is tested and rivalries are renewed. But with a powerful enemy rising, there are no guarantees any of them will survive the coming fight.
This book features a fiery, independent curvy woman who's not afraid to speak her mind and kick some ass, as well as a strong, powerful man who is far more than meets the eye.
This book is a stand-alone, no cheating, no cliff-hangers, and a guaranteed happy ending!
I loved the new take on vampires in this story. I also liked that the lead female character was smart and strong. She didn’t have to constantly be rescued. And I loved that the male lead character respected her strength but still also treated her like a woman. The narration was great too. Wish all the series has the same narrator!!
Paranormal and shifters are not my typical listen, but was pleasantly surprised with this book. Much like many two separate communities, the wolves and bears are rivals. A situation that threatens both of them arises and they find that they may have to fight together. When this does not happen,Neesa, the wolves assassin and Jackson(a bear assassin) work together to try and save their clans/packs. Will they be able to see past their differences? Lively has created an adventure of suspense, erotic romance and acceptance. Through the many twists and turns this story takes, we get to interact with a great cast of characters and work to find out if they will survive and get their happily ever after.
Jeffrey D Peterson and Ali Peterson give a wonderful duet performance for this narration. Jeffrey has a deep baritone edginess giving the male characters, especially Jackson the alpha feel necessary for their characters. Ali gives Neesa the necessary assertive and tender voices for her character to be the warrior that she is.
