Book Blurb

Dreading his arranged mating to an abusive werewolf, Omega wolf Six decides to sneak out of his pack’s compound for a one-night stand with a sexy stranger. Dante’s different from any other man he’s ever met. Six knows there’s an unexplainable connection between them, but he flees the next day, knowing they can’t be together because of his strict pack.

Alpha werewolf Dante can’t stop thinking about his hook-up with a feisty yet sweet Omega, but Six disappears on him before they can start anything good. When Six arrives in town looking for him, bruised and pregnant with Dante’s kid, Dante knows luck is on his side. This time, Dante isn’t about to take any chances.

Dante knows Six is meant to be his, and he’ll do anything to protect his mate and pup—even start a war with an entire werewolf pack.

Book Review

It is with a little wistfulness that I began this fifth and final installment in the ‘Wolves of Emerald Valley’ series. I have enjoyed reading about each man finding his mate and the mates have all been well written characters. Dante is the last and I noticed differences in him during the previous novella so I was looking forward to his own happy ending. I wanted to see all of these wolves, and vampires, safe, happy, healthy, and maybe get some resolution to the problem of the current wolf pack alpha not able to handle his role or his pack.

I didn’t blame Six at all for sneaking out of the compound (told me everything I needed to know about his birth pack) and heading to a bar for a drink and to find someone to lose his virginity to. He certainly didn’t want to give it to Spike, his alpha’s brother, who is to be his mate. Spike is mean and vicious. Six can’t believe his luck when he meets Dante at the bar. Dante is in town tying up some business he had with Randall, alpha of the Ridgeback pack. Six’s pack. Dante is well aware of, and completely disagrees with, the way Randall deals with the omegas in his pack. Dante is ridiculously attracted (as is his wolf) to Six and he gives the omega a night they both can remember.

Two weeks later Dante is miserable missing Six and wondering how he can sneak into the compound when Six shows up. Pregnant and exiled from his pack for having broken his mating contract by having sex outside of their pack and his intended mate, Six is thrilled when Dante welcomes him and his pregnancy. Of course, it’s too easy to think that Spike won’t still hunt Six down for revenge but I’m pretty sure Dante can take that guy.

I really would have liked more backstory on both of these main characters and fewer editing errors. However, Six is very sweet and Dante gladly stepped up to the plate, so I was rooting for them to make it. The drama involving Spike was very anti-climactic and I was a little disappointed with that. All in all, though, book five finished out the series very well, and even though there were things in each novella I wasn’t thrilled with, I’m glad I read this series because I definitely liked the characters.
