What it's about...
Nita thinks she has lost her whole family until she hears of a possible cousin. She takes off to see if he really is a relative. On the way, she runs into Vic.

Vic has lost his parents and run from his responsibility as pack alpha. He's in hiding. And he finds Nita bathing in "his" forest.

Can they help each other?    

Technical Tidbits...  
The cover has problems. I love the male figure on there. He works well as Vic. There is no sign of Nita except the cut & paste bear. That bear really needs to be worked in better if that's the only representation of Nita.

The storyline is really good. I enjoyed it completely and liked the way the author dealt with it.

The characters need a bit of help here. It would help to understand them better if we knew a bit more about them. They just seemed to be sort of clueless.

The pace was very good and worked well for the story.

The tension was good as well. It kept you going.

I did find some editing issues in this book. I had missing words and extra words, which is always a problem when it happens. It did not seem to be a big problem, but it did continue through the whole book.

And this is where you STOP if you don't want to see any SPOILERS...

The good, the bad, and the ugly...and how much it lit up my life... ✰✰✰✰

I have to say, this was a fun read. You knew from the beginning they would end up together because that's the formula. But it was really fun watching them figure it all out! At first, neither of them wanted more than just some easy sex. But the sex was hot and it got more than just their human sides worked up. Their beasts got involved just a bit and teeth that shouldn't have been in play were doing their thing. So, in just one night, there they are mated. A phone call to Vic's brother got them the info that they'd have to appear before the Paranormal Council to see about being unmated.

But is that what they really wanted? Immediately, Nita starts feeling cozy and secure in the mated condition. Vic isn't paying much attention to it, but he treats Nita like a mated partner. The subject of children is raised at one point.

Finally, after going before the Council about Nita's relative, they find out who her relative is. One of the women on the Council says her name is Hendricks, which is this relative's last name. Ari Hendricks tells them to come to her home and they can meet her husband, who is this relative they are looking for. And finally, Nita meets Bjorn, who is her grandfather. Together, they also talk about her mated status. And they talk about the years they missed being together.

In the meantime, Vic and his brother talk about the Alpha position with the pack and whether or not he should even consider trying to step back into it. Whether or not the pack would want him to do so. Vic's brother, Kem, has been filling the position in his place and things are going just fine. He is mated to a dryad named Lia. Nita really likes her. They do a lot of talking about the mated status and Nita thinks a lot about how she really feels since it's happened and how she feels about Vic and being here where Bjorn and his mate are.

In the end, so many things become a part of the young couple's decision. This is one of those books that make you feel good. Now, I'm going to go back and read the Paranormal Council Series, but I will be reviewing it as a series since each one is less than 100 pages.

Recommended.
