He let her father chase him off once, but this time nothing is getting in his way.
Fletcher Stone was forced out of the pack life, and now he makes his living as a hired thug, living day-to-day without honour or commitments. Shame over his choices and his lifestyle keep him from returning to the pack to claim Delaney — the woman who holds his heart. But when a rival pack hires him to kidnap her, Fletcher takes his chance. Now he must convince her that he never wanted to leave…and reveal a betrayal that will break her heart.
Delaney Jones has spent the last five years convinced the man she loves is dead. Nothing else would keep him from her. So when Fletcher shows up, whole, healthy, and very much alive, she’s devastated — and pissed off. He broke her heart once and he's never going to get close enough to do it again.
Delaney Jones thinks the love of her life is dead and is shocked, mad and confused when comes back to claim her as his mate.
Now this was a fun quick read. The action and sexual tension between Fletcher and Delaney starts right away. At first she's shocked to see him and then when she realizes he's not hurt, has never been hurt, she's really mad because that's the only explanation she can think of that would have kept him away from her for five years.
When she tries to get away from him and he won't let her, she fights him and almost shifts into her wolf form. That is until Fletcher puts what only can be described as the Vulcan Death Grip on her, rendering her unconscious. Oh yeah, he's gonna pay for that move.
This is an epic love story laced with family betrayal, greed and power. Delaney's father is the lowest of the low and she never saw what kind of man he really was until it was pointed out to her and her heart had already been broken. But when Fletcher comes home and faces down the alpha that threw him out of the pack with nothing but the clothes on his back, everything changes.
For such a quick read, there's a lot of story and back story here. There's also a good bit of steamy sex, which is never a bad thing in a romance book.
If you like wolf shifters, sarcastic banter, a kick ass heroine and a great love story then you'll love this novella.
I give this book 4 1/2 sheep.
