Olivia endures a thirty-four year passionless marriage, discovering her dead husband’s philandering history at his funeral. She devotes her energy and life-long sensitivity with animals to her wildlife refuge and preserve.
Chance, a Lycan alpha and leader of the Lycan International Investigation Agency (LIIA) throws himself into his investigations. He chooses to neglect his duty of finding a primal-mate after watching his father become an empty shell over the loss of his.
A murderous rogue pack draws Chance onto Olivia’s wildlife preserve, sending Olivia’s animal sensitivities into overdrive. Chance and Olivia discover a sizzling force driving them together.
Will they succumb to its enticing tether, or fight to resume their loveless lives apart?
This is a hot book! I was expecting a paranormal romance with some steamy scenes and a lot of kissing, but this book was good surprise.
Chance has given up on primal-mate simply because his father suffered a lot after his mother died. And the way his brother treated him, blaming and pushing made things even harder.
Now he’s the alpha of LIIA and for years his pack is trying to arrest and stop a crazy wolf that has killed both, humans and lycan. That’s how Chance met Olivia. She has a wildlife preserve and the crazy wolf has been attacking her animals.
I loved how the author handled the discovering’s and the relationship between Chance and Olivia. He’s trying to save her but she is trying to forget her adulterous husband and lies are not the best thing. Plus there’s a chemistry between these two that is extreme.
The sexual scenes were more than I expected taking in consideration Chance pack lives a very human life. A great thing to overpower the suspense and the crazy wolf killing past time. I liked this book, but wish it were a little bigger.

Where the hell is it?
Sharp prickles raced up Olivia’s spine as the deepest, longest, eeriest
wolf howl she ever heard echoed through the forest. Her body froze and her
fingers clung white-knuckled around the tranq rifle. A longer ominous howl
answered. It came from the back side of the barn. She took a deep breath,
stood up with gun ready, rounded the corner, and ran the length of the
barn. Olivia paused for another breath before dashing around to the
backside of the structure.
She stepped away from the building, intent on walking her yard
perimeter, head pivoting in all directions, scanning the short grass and
fallen leaves. Movement to her right alerted her too late as she pivoted
toward the motion.
“Oomph!” She took a hit, like a truck slammed into her front side. A
flurry of black and silver fur, claws, and teeth. She fell flat on her back, her
head bouncing off the ground. The rifle flew from her grasp. No footfalls, no
heavy breathing, but a pungent scent of musty dog fur lingered in the air.
Olivia lay there, afraid to move, afraid the wolf had just called in his pack.
