My Thoughts:

This was an interesting book. It started a little slow but didn't take long to pick up. It is suspenseful and keeps you guessing as to what these people were gonna do next. The children have some really neat skills. However, I felt sad for these children and their predicament. I am interested to see what else Vincent can do since his part was kind of understated in this book. I really enjoyed this story and I am definitely curious about what book 2 has in store for readers.

Will Sydney and Derrick find their happily ever after or will the unhinged woman stalking them
destroy their chance?

When Sydney left Seattle two years ago, she was scared, traumatized, and done with men for
good. Now she has a good job, a hobby that's fast becoming a second career, and best of all,
she's adopted a little girl named Angel. Life is good and Sydney's not about to let charming
lawyer Derrick mess that up, no matter how sexy he is, or how sweet he seems.

Things aren't always as they appear in the town of Great Oaks, Virginia. Derrick isn’t the ladies’
man Sydney thinks he is, but he does have a few secrets, such as his ability to transform into a
powerful wolf at will.

Can Derrick convince Sydney to give him a chance, something more than her elusive maybe?
More importantly, should he? He's still trying to forgive himself for being at the wheel during
the accident that killed his son. Losing Sydney when she learns the truth might break him, but
he's pretty sure not having her in his life would be just as bad.

A troubled woman running from her guilty conscience has Sydney and Derrick in her crosshairs,
and she’ll do whatever it takes to win her game. Will Sydney and Derrick survive long enough
to be together?

About Christina Lynn Lambert

Christina Lynn Lambert

A few years ago, I read my first romance novel and I was hooked, so much so that I decided to
give the idea of writing a story a chance. My style is more gritty than sweet and I look forward to
writing many more stories with strong heroines and imperfect but determined characters. Love,
courage, hope, and second chances are a few of my favorite themes. When I’m not writing, I
enjoy spending time outside and finding ways to avoid cooking. I live in beautiful Virginia with
my husband, two daughters, and a sweet, hairy monster of a dog.
