Another great one from Nicky Charles and what makes it even better is that this and the others in the series are free from Smashwords. The only thing Nicky asks is that you make a donation to your local animal shelter or foodbank which in my opinion is a lovely and thoughtful thing to do ☺

Once again I thoroughly enjoyed this one and am regretting that I left it so long before actually picking it up and reading it. Like the first one I read (0.5 in the series) I was once again up until the early hours of the morning as I didn't want to leave it before finishing.

I really liked the character of Elise and felt quite sorry for her that her father just sprang an arranged marriage on her. She had no warning at all - she came home and her dad introduces her to the man she is gonna marry and then the next thing we know there is a mating ceremony and the poor thing has to then be subjected to having the bedsheets shown around the next morning as proof that she was a virgin and that the mating had been consumated. I didn't like the fact that she slept with him immediately despite only having just met him and suposedly was in love with someone else. Yes I know this is normal in PNR but usually both characters feel the mating bond immediately and then get together but neither of these two felt that so it was kind of strange even for this genre. For a werewolf I thought that Kane was a mild mannered man and was kind and considerate towards Elise which made us, the reader, immediately soften to him and thought he was a special man. I do agree with most other reviewers here and that is I wish we had seen more of Kane's perspective rather than just from Elise.

These books are not short/novella length but are full size. This one registered as 314 pages on my Ereader.

Dee @Leslie Thanks Leslie....I see you only gave it 2 stars so obviously not your cup of tea.

@Karla Thanks Karla I have really enjoyed the 2 I have read so far and yeah it is really nice/special of her to ask that donations be given to help animals. I saw that you enjoyed them too!

You need to push them up to the top of the pile Vashti. I originally got them nearly a year ago and kept meaning to read them but they kept getting pushed down the list :)
