Book Description:
He was the best mistake she ever made…

…and he might just be the death of her.

Many years ago, Heather threw a coin into the old fountain and made a wish. She wished that the man of her dreams would come and sweep her away, far away from the home where she’d always felt ignored and unwanted. Now, she’s grown up, and she’s learned better. You can’t count on anybody to make your future better. You can only build it yourself.

And you especially can’t count on Cole Jackman.

It’s been nearly a decade since their tumultuous high school romance, but Heather can’t quite shake the memories. And when Cole stumbles back into her life, she learns that she still can’t control herself around him. But she’s no naive little girl anymore, and now, Heather sees something she missed before: Cole’s hiding a great big whopper of a secret. Something dark. Something dangerous. Something…furry.

As Heather uncovers the truth, she finds herself caught in a centuries-old conflict that puts her on center stage. Her dual destinies - one as Cole’s mate, and one as his sworn adversary, have made her enemies on all sides. And to make matters worse, she just can’t seem to keep her hands off of him. Can she find a way to tame his wolfish nature, and bring peace to the Douglas Mountain clan before it’s too late?


My Thoughts on the Book
What a great story. I like shifter stories because they bring a good sense of fantasy to what you are reading and for this book the author did an amazing job.

You jump right into the story feeling like what Dante is telling you is already unfolding but you've jumped in at the right moment to learn all you need to to get the story going.

Right from the start you get a sense that something isn't normal about the people of Douglas Mountain but you aren't quite sure what it is until Cole gets to town and everything starts falling into place.

While some aspects of the story were predictable others not so much. Of course, the predictability of the love story was only because of their presence within the story. Why else would Dante bring them together if she didn't want them together and yet the circumstances, the twists and turns... all enjoyable and great.

I need the second book!
