When you start to read this book please make sure to read the “Dear Reader” letter at the beginning. I usually skip this part and get right to the story. But Michele gives you a little hint into how she writes her stories.
Ridge Addison reminds Michele of Jason Statham.
Michele then asks you a question at the end. You can stop by either her blog (http://blog.michelehauf.com/) or Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Michele-Hauf-Author/84169458804?v=app_159280820764230) to answer. She has also dedicated this book to her “tweeple”.
Richard “Ridge” Addison is seen swinging an ax in order to make some firewood. The forest is located thirty miles northeast of the Twin Cities. Jason Crews is helping him. This just conjures some interesting pictures in my mind.
Ridge has become Pack leader and is looking to build their numbers. He’s also a man that stands up for what he believes in. As they talk, Jason reminds him of his duty. He lets us know that he’s married to a witch. Then Michele shows the reader how they came to be married. I won’t let you in on how it occurred because you should read it for yourself. It also explains how Ridge knows that she’s a witch.
Abigail Rowan’s son, Ryan, is coming in from Switzerland. Switzerland is where he goes to school. Ridge has come looking for her and they need to talk. They haven’t seen each other in thirteen years. She lets him know that she needs his help with her son. What has she got him involved in? You’ll just have to keep reading to find out the answer to that.
Michele gives us plenty of action. But she also makes you hungry. There’s a scene where Ridge and Abigail stop for a bite to eat. I’m just warning you because you may not want to read the scene on an empty stomach – I’m just saying.
Michele has also made Ridge to be very ecologically conscious. It makes you wonder if there are any other authors out there who have also made some of their characters aware of what they are doing to our planet. It also makes you question if you are doing enough in your own corner of the world.
Ridge and Abigail seem to go back and forth with their relationship. And always in the middle is her son. But for all the mentioning about the son, he doesn’t make much of an appearance. I think I would have liked to have seen more of an interaction between the three of them. I would have liked to have seen if Ryan was the typical teenager. Why does he go to school in another country? Michele gives us a small hint but I think I would have liked to see that scene played out a little more.
I loved when Ridge and Ryan finally connected. This story had the HEA (happily ever after) ending you would expect but I would love to know if there’s going to be a sequel. Does Jason get his own story? Do we get to see what type of young man Ryan grows up to be?
If you like the writings of Michele Hauf, you will enjoy this story. If you like werewolf or witch romances, you will want to read this one. When you read a paranormal romance, nothing is off limits because it’s totally up to the imagination of the writer. Michele has a great imagination and we’re just along for the ride.
