The shadows of her past could destroy their future.
Green Pines, Book 1
Eden Green can’t remember a time she didn’t believe in monsters—her cousin was born one. Her family’s dark past casts a long shadow, making it hard to make friends and harder to commit to a lover. She lives a quiet life in small-town Clover, Tennessee, but she’s always waiting for the other shoe to drop.
Tired of the city packs’ corruption, yet too alpha to be a subordinate in a sanctuary town, Jay Ancheta satisfies his need to protect by serving as Clover’s Chief of Police. As much as he’s drawn to Eden, he can’t offer forever to a woman who doesn’t know what he is—or trust himself to let her go after one taste.
When Eden’s cousin and his battered pack stagger into town, their tormentors hard on their heels, Eden is bitten in the chaos. Now Jay not only has a traumatized pack to deal with, but a newly turned wolf with enough hungry alpha power to consume them both.
With their combined strength, they can create a new sanctuary—if their passion can survive the ghosts of the Green family’s legacy.
Warning: Contains a newly turned werewolf heroine who enjoys a little rough dominance in bed and a badass alpha wolf hero who’ll fight bad guys, ghosts and even the past to protect what’s his. Be prepared for violence, death and heartbreak on the way to a happily ever after.
Haunted Sanctuary is the first in the new series Green Pines by Moira Rogers, It ties in with one of the previous series Sanctuary but is separate and stand alone and can be read as such.
This is an excellent story and well worth putting on your re-read shelf. The world building and imagery are amazing and the character development and interaction is top notch. Jay is the perfect alpha and assists Eden with her being turned into a werewolf as well as taking over a pack all when he really didn't want to be the alpha of a pack to start with. The sex scenes are steamy and intense so be sure to read when you have a handy outlet for the sexual tension you will be feeling (husband, significant other, your own hot werewolf).
Be prepared if this is the first Moira Rogers book you read you will be going out to buy them all by the time you are done!
