Synopsis
Derek Gabriel and Nicole Peyton have been lusting after each other for a while but at the moment they finally decide to give in to their attraction, their world comes apart when Michelle's sister arrives on their doorstep on the run from the Wolf Conclave. Things go from bad to worse as wolf politics and traditions threaten to destroy Derek and Nick's new found love.

Note: It is necessary to read book #1 in the series first in order to understand some of the backstory.

Review
The Southern Arcana world is intriguing. However, the background of the Wolf Conclave politics as well as the customs and traditions of their society are not sufficiently fleshed out which results in confusion and a vague dissatisfaction.

While Derek and Nick have a tangible chemistry and a sweet romance, their relationship also lacks background detail. This makes it difficult to become emotionally engaged in their characters and story - it is like coming into a movie in the middle. Nevertheless, Nick is a strong heroine and her devotion to her sister is admirable. Derek is one hot and sexy wolf and his willingness to sacrifice himself for love makes him even more appealing.

The plot lags in the beginning but heats up just past the halfway mark and becomes action packed toward the end. The secondary characters are very compelling, especially Alec and Kat, and I look forward to reading their books.
