Isaiah's Haven (Legacy #2) by N.J. Walters
Legacy, Book 2
Isaiah Striker puts family first, the pack a distant second. Which is precisely the reason he s in noisy, crowded Chicago instead of alone in his beloved woods. One look at the owner of Haven nightclub, however, and a simple favor for his brother turns into something else entirely.
Meredith Cross holds her small pack together with sheer determination. After years on the run, they hide in the glare of the city s nightlife. Isaiah may heat her blood, but she can t afford to risk the lives of the outcast half-breeds in her care. Once exposed, every bounty hunter and werewolf purist in smelling distance will hunt them down.
But when their sexual attraction spirals out of control, a moment s distraction is all it takes to lead danger right to Meredith s door. For Meredith there s only one choice: her pack.
But Isaiah knows his mate when he sees her. And he s not giving up without a fight.Warning: This book contains hot sex, a jazzy nightclub, sexy werewolves, rogue werewolves, nasty bounty hunters, a mysterious vampire, and did I mention hot sex.
Isaiah is one of the Striker brothers & a very powerful werewolf. He is on a mission for his brother Joshua (who you met in book #1) which takes him to Chicago. Isaiah feels like a loner even though he has a big supportive family. He just does not seem to fit in after his sister was taken on his watch. He has been different ever since that day 35 years ago.
While in Chicago he overhears a beauty voice singing & can not help himself to get a glimpse of whom the beautiful voice belongs to. The moment he walked in Haven his world would change.
Meredith Cross is an independent full blooded & unmated female wolf, she is also the ALPHA of her little pack. She has 2 pure blood sons (Michael & Benjamin) & 3 adopted half breed male sons (Hank, Kevin & Teague) & 1 half breed female daughter (Neema & Teague's mate). She escaped from her pack when she knew they would force her to mate again against her will now that her 1st mate was dead. Along the way she took in more children who had no clue as to what they were, explaining to them the best she could. Also protecting them not only from hunters but also purists (full blood werewolves that killed half breeds).
Isaiah meets Meredith & with time learns her fears & past experiences. Isaiah helps protect her & her pack when hunters come to kill them & purist come looking for the 2 females they heard about. Knowing they will mate with her against her will & kill her 4 adopted children she fights along side of Isaiah & the rest of her family to survive.
It is a good love story & leaves you feeling happy & victorious in the end.
