About the Book: (blurb from author site)
Running for their lives, overcome by desire—can Rogan protect the wife he doesn’t remember from the one man who wants them both dead?
Rogan Wolfe desperately wants to find the wife he doesn’t remember. After kidnapping him two years earlier, B*E*A*S*T* faked Rogan’s death to make it appear as if he’d died in a gruesome car accident. With that knowledge, he is driven to reclaim the life that was so maliciously stolen from him.
Marlie Silver is in shock. Not only has she just found out that her husband is alive and well, she learns that he’s a shifter—able to change his shape into a timber wolf. She’s never gotten over his loss and he’s offering her a second chance. Problem is, he doesn’t remember their life together.
But Rogan is being pursued by Sean Ross, a murderous shifter determined to kill him-and Marlie-at any cost. Can Rogan protect her from the man who wants them both dead? And can a wolf ever stand any chance at all against a Kodiak grizzly?
Dangerous and addicting is the only way to describe this book. From the first page, you are roped into the world of sifters and military science experiments. This series is filled with lovable characters that the reader can’t help but follow through every twist and turn.
There is the perfect combination of reunited love and pure adventure as we follow Rogan, Marlie, and Wade on their journey to escape the B*E*A*S*T* organization. Once you read the first sentence, you will not want to put the book down until you discover all of the secrets of this world. While pure paranormal fantasy this book holds enough of reality to be completely believable and that is part of its charm.
Truly one of the best books of the past few years, I can’t wait to get a hold of the next installment.
