A man who frightens her all the more because even in her nightmares, he also thrills her.
Together for the first time since that terrible night, Scott and Madison drive to Clinton’s home only to discover that he’s vanished. Frantic now, Madison must overcome her fears and uncover hidden strengths if she hopes to save him. And she’s not the only one fighting inner demons. Scott’s are literal, and they have him convinced that he will never deserve the woman he loves.
*Stand-alone companion to the Cassie Scot series
“Scott had long come to believe that doubt made more things impossible then any other force in the universe.”
Madison is a unique heroine who lacks confidence but really just doesn’t know how strong an pretty she is. Before she saw Scott turn into his werewolf monster she heard rumors she had been drawn to him but thought he had no interest in her. After that night while a small part of her still wanted him she feared him and never wanted to be apart of the werewolf world again until her brother, the only person she thought loved her, tells her he has been bitten. Madison’s love for her brother makes her brave and strong, as she discovers more about her magical talent of song and evoking emotions on others. This book is about the struggle of a man with a dark soul, who thinks he is a monster and must put his pact first, and a meek girl who must break free of her shell and the tragic things from her past in order to save her brother and have a chance at love.
I found Madison’s magical gift of evoking emotions through song weird at first. I kept picturing the scenes in my head… big, scary werewolves and this meek girl sining some song lyrics. As Madison got more confident with her songs it really came together in this weird way, and seemed to balance out with her angelic voice. It was a unique werewolf story.
There was plenty of great action in the book and the romance was wonderfully written. I was always rooting for romance and wanting more, which is a great writing. Leave them wanting more. There is no insta-romace for sure since the characters knew each other before the story begins.
I rate this book a 4 of 5. If you like paranormal romance then this is one to read.
