Amidst a war of attrition and a struggle for power Lily Blackwood is torn between two strong men... One, Wallace is her perfect idea of a partner, loving, loyal and handsome. The second, Bryn, is her true mate, the man chosen for her by nature and her family. Denial and naivety for nature’s choice, sends her into a rage of independence against the laws of her own destiny, family and her own father.
Wallace Kirk is assigned to protect the beautiful Lily since her birth... His loyalties are tearing him apart. His own mate, dead, taken from him, fills his thoughts as Lily begs for his attention. She needs him, but not as much as the wolf that prowls in her flesh.
Bryn Kemp's nature and need fill his flesh... Yet his true mate, the woman chosen for him, denies her destiny. His battle for her and his own pride must overcome her feisty rebellious streak.
Both men must fight for her in the throes of oncoming battle and she must make the right choice. A decision that will shape the war.
First, I loved the cover! Love the color and the wolf in the background is great, like danger lurking in the shadows. Though I guess that is the point since there is definitely danger lurking in the shadows for Lily Blackwood. This is the first book in the Blackwood Wolves series and it was awesome! It was an excellent start to the series, it give us enough background about the Blackwood wolves pack and some of the mysticism the comes along with the Blackwood name. And also their very long feud with their nemesis, a vampire who loves wolf blood, and there is nothing better to him than Blackwood blood.
Lily has tried to escape the reality of her future as Alpha. She moves to the city, goes to school, gets her degree and now works at an art gallery. But destiny can only be put on hold for so long and when she starts to realize that she needs to take her rightful place in the pack and is bombarded with information and is on info overload, she finds that she and her sister may also be the target of their greatest enemy. Wallace is Lily's best friend, he protects her and helps her in her times of need, but unfortunately he is not her true mate. Bryn, who is switching places with Wallace for protective duty, may just be the candidate that Lily is looking for. But will they find out before danger strikes?
If I had to choose who it would be, I'd say Wallace, he just did something for me in this story. Totally Alpha hot, lol. I thought this was a great introduction to the series, and an amazing read full of action and shifter hotness. I'm totally looking forward to the next installment.
