Jess, a multiform shifter with Scottish mother and American father, has returned to her grandfather's ranch in Montana from Scotland to get away from her mother's attempts to marry her off to Cameron, another multiform shifter and her second cousin. She soon learns, however, that her grandfather, a wolf shifter, has been keeping secrets when they are involved in an accident and he is hospitalized. Before he dies, he alludes to debts and extracts a promise from her not to contest his will.
Cade is Tom's Alpha and long time friend. Jess remembers him from her childhood as the black sheep of his family. His father was Alpha and his older brother was expected to follow as Alpha. But after their deaths, Cade was chosen to lead his pack, winning over another contender, Brandon. Cade's ranch adjoins Tom's and he has made an offer to buy Tom's land. Tom also gains his promise not to contest his will.
When Tom's will is read, both Cade and Jess are present, both stunned. Tom has left his ranch and home to both of them. But to claim it, they will have to marry and stay married for six months. Otherwise the ranch will be sold to a land developer and the proceeds will be donated. Both promised to follow his wishes, never expecting to be snared in an arranged marriage. For Jess it's out of the frying pan and into the fire. For Cade it a win win-sex with an end date. But Jess has secrets of her own.
With Cade being the bad boy, no one thought he would be the next alpha and there was one plotting against him from within giving lots of questions as to back story and a satisfactory response. Cade learns a lot about his new bride including her bad past and the darkness she believes she has inside. He does not turn away from her and encourages her to embrace both shifted forms. Through their love, she finds that darkling does not necessarily mean evil. It is rewarding when they truly declare their love and I totally loved this pair.
Jess MacLeish was so unique, she was from a very power family of Highland shifters. Not only that but she had not only her human and wolf form but also her Darkling form. I felt so sorry for Jess. How awful it must of been to fear shifting because you were scared that the Darkling side would come out. The Darkling was like a vampire. It was her dark side and it craved blood. She feared of what or who it would hurt or kill. Jess how so much hurt from her past. She need not only help to except who she was but she need inward healing as well.
Had to love sexy Cade Derringer. Just his smile and his sexy voice made the women’s panties melt. He was the alpha of the Whitter wolf pack. He was true bad boy and loved his women. He had plan on never settling down, but one thing he knew for sure was that he wanted to have some fun with Jess. One thing I love about Cade was his love for his pack and compassion he had to help others. He is truly what you would like to read about for an Alpha and a mate.
Got to love Grandpa Tom. He had not only his granddaughter in mind but also his alpha. He loved the both of them very much. he decided he was going to play match maker from the grave. Now Cade and Jess would have to marry and live together in grandpa’s house for 6 months, conditions of the “Will”. Will Jess be able to keep her dark side hidden? Will they be able to keep not having feelings for each other? Will Jess end up kill Cade in his sleep?
Through out the book there was a couple of characters I did not like, but I have to say that by the end of the book my heart broke for one of them. I can not imagine going thru that kind of pain. Want to know more, well read the book.
There is a murder loose and danger seems to not be far, will Cade be able to catch the murder before it is to late?
There is a lot going on in this book. I received this book for free for an honest review. Trust me when I say Linda will not disappoint.
There's fun, laughter, and lots of yummy sex that's organic to the developing relationship. As the heroine's dark past unravels and the hero deals with a mysterious series of deadly attacks, the story grows ever more suspenseful. Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down.
