A lonely over the road trucker and a woman terrified of who is chasing not far behind her have a memorable encounter at a truck stop in Wyoming introducing a new and exciting paranormal world. I was right in this story and engaged with the main characters from the moment I encountered them on the page and I stayed hooked through this quick and easy, yet exciting and spicy read to the finish.
Jackie Breton is on the run for her life. The last few months of her life have been a nightmare that few would believe- not that any of her life has been easy growing up the bi-racial child in a small southern community who condemned her mother for marrying her father for the different color of their skin. She shakes loose of that town and uses her work as an accountant to save for the time she can move her mother to live with her far from there until she makes the mistake of trusting and thinking she was in love with the wrong man who wasn’t even human. Then, an encounter with a gentle bear shifter who rescues her from trouble at a truck stop asking nothing in return other than to get her to safety shows her that she’s been carrying around her own prejudices against all shifters because of the ones who mistreated and abused her and one left her pregnant with his child before leaving her with worse of his kind.
Trevor has always been alone save for the aunt who took him in when his parents didn’t even want him because his bear side was nothing like any bear they had ever seen. Most shifters fear him and think there is something wrong about him so they keep their distance. He just wants to belong- and have a mate and family of his own. He knows Jackie is his true mate, but he knows she hates his kind and wouldn’t believe him about the mate thing so he puts aside his own hopes and wants to do whatever it takes to make sure she is safe even if that means she leaves him.
This book really wasn’t that long and yet it was developed so well. The world of shifters, fae, magical humans, vampires and more is introduced, a few possible series-long conflicts are begun, and the main characters are given a deep background and an opportunity for personal growth and healing as well as spicy hot romance while racing for safety together. The book felt complete and wrapped up the central issues, but also left me eager to dive in for more from the series.
All in all, this was a good one and I can heartily recommend it to those who enjoy fated mates spicy shifter stories set in a world of many paranormal types.
