Released: October 2013
Nikita Ashton and Raoul Saint Germain have been friends for five years, so when Nikita is attacked, there is only one place she can run to—straight into Raoul's arms.
Raoul is the Alpha of his pack and he is furious that the woman he loves has been harmed on his territory. Were it not for the fact that Nikita does not believe in anything even remotely paranormal, his wolf would have claimed her aeons ago.
Nikita is in need of tender, loving care, not his baser needs that are threatening to overtake him.
However, when Nikita admits that she knows about his being in the lifestyle, the Dom in him cannot resist the challenge to make her his submissive.
Blissfully happy in their new Dom/sub relationship, everything changes when Nikita is kidnapped. Can Raoul get to her in time to save her life?
I loved it all, the story and the characters. Raoul.. I can't imagine the patience he had in waiting for his mate. There is so much against Raoul, his intended mate is human, she is clueless about shifters and that life. One evening changes a lot, his intended mate is attacked by a known assailant. Raoul struggles not to let the past replay itself.
Nikita, a sweet something that had enough heartache in life, she is her own worst enemy. When she is attacked by creatures she didn’t know existed, it brings her to her best friend Raoul’s place. The easy friendliness between both of them is evident. What lies just under the surface is the real passion that Raoul fights to hold on to.
The sex is a bit heated with a few BDSM themed elements. It will have you wishing for more though, well if you’re into BDSM. (smiles) Raoul is a Dominant and loves his spankings. Nikita is tired of hearing and seeing how many women Raoul plays with, she is also tired of being “just” his friend. If Raoul thinks to scare little Nikita away with disclosing the darker of side of His sexual preferences, he is in for a rude awakening. His wolf pushes against him to mate Nikita, Raoul digs in trying to take his time. He has loved her from a distance, watched her date.. now that she is with reach he is afraid to lose her.
Then the past comes to rear its ugly head, and Nikita is taken as a hostage. The past is revisited in a dark cell, as Nikita's life is taken from her. Nikita fights hard and will make a choice that will not only effect her but Raoul and his pack. So step into the world of Shifters and immerse yourself in the story that Ms. O'Connor weaves for us.
