For eighteen horrific months, Chrissten Lawton was at the mercy of a crazy doctor and his pureblood werewolf flunky. She was subjected to experiments, beaten, mated against her will…and fading fast.
Just as she reaches the breaking point, the Haven pack comes to her rescue. Although any strange male makes her nervous, one of her rescuers stays by her side night and day, and something within her responds to this wolf’s gentleness.
From the moment Hank Brewer picked up Chrissten’s unique scent, he’s been driven to help her overcome her trauma-fed fears. He may be a half-breed, but he never does anything halfway. As he dedicates every waking moment to her healing, their fragile link leads them toward something they both hesitate to name.
But the danger isn’t past. Chrissten’s mate is still on the loose and he won’t rest until she—and the rest of Haven’s females—are taken for the cruel enjoyment of his rogue pack. Even though Hank would give his life to save her, the biggest challenge lies ahead. Admitting their love to each other.
Chrissten Lawton is finally rescued after a horrible 18 months of abuse. Her brothers (Quinn & Craig) never gave up hope of finding her. Now with the help of The Haven pack they were able to save her from her kidnappers.
Chrissten has been forced to mate with Brian (pure blood werewolf) against her will. Will Chrissten be able to overcome her trust issues with men as a result of the abuse she has suffered? She will have to if she wants to be with Hank.
Hank has fallen fast & hard for Chrissten. Hank knew the moment he caught her scent that she was supposed to be his. Chrissten & Hank should not be attracted to one another with her being mated but they just can’t stop the attraction that they feel for each other. Hank knows he has to take it slow, Chrissten is fragile from her ordeal. Hank is winning her over with his charms & the feeling of protection she has when she is near him.
Now Chrissten & The Haven pack have to face off against Brian her mate/rapist as well as 5 other pure blood werewolves to protect herself & all other female werewolves out there. Once that is accomplished then she must decide if she can be Hanks mate after all that she has been through. She also will have to convince her twin brother Quinn that she wants to be mated with Hank & hope that it does not start WWIII.
