The Delight

A lynx-wolf hybrid living in a world that is very dangerous to her in particular, finally gets the wolf she’s had her eye on, to make his move. The chemistry is off the charts and the friendship already developed is as well. But wolf shifter Vance has a big secret and Kaya isn’t going to be a happy shifter when she finds out. The delight was their journey to a happily ever after, all the while fighting the horrible forces that can’t wait to use Kaya for their evil purposes.

Review

Lisa Kessler’s Moon series was a suspenseful delight from book one until the end. This new series is a spin off from the Moon series and several of the new characters first made their debut in that series. Since I read all of the books from Moon and enjoyed them, I was more than happy to dive back into this shifter world that Kessler has built. While Moon takes place in Nevada, this one takes place in Sedona, Arizona. One thing the two packs share is the evil Nero organization that has pretty much been at war with all shifters. They are trying to build super soldiers by having shifters changed to hybrids-among other nefarious actions. More importantly, they do not care who gets hurt in the process as long as it is a shifter.

Kaya is a chef and owns her own restaurant. Since she was born as a lynx, she can shift at will at anytime. Nero had her kidnapped and bitten as an adult and after she escaped, she now has to change with the full moon into a wolf. Kaya’s lynx changes with the jaguars that are now members of the wolf pack during the new moon. Then with the full moon, she changes with the wolves from her pack. The jaguars are former Nero organization members, now brought over to the good side. Vance is Australian, runs a rock(stone)shop, has an adorable dog and spends his evenings eating at Kaya’s restaurant while the two practically dance around each other with want. Vance can’t admit a horrible secret so he stays only as friends with her-until he doesn’t. He knows that she will not be happy about his secret in any way, shape or form.

As always, Ms. Kessler has written an exciting story, one that is full of romance and suspense. The action was typical of Nero, as they are relentless at trying to kidnap Kaya back to their organization. There’s plenty of romance, action and violence involved. The pack in Nevada gets into the action at times as well. It’s always nice to catch up with characters I care about from past books. I love that the author includes scenes of pack life, shifter children and even a wedding-not Kaya and Vance’s though. Very good world building and a, at times, thrilling romantic plot just showed me once again what a polished writer Kessler is and always has been in her previous works.

Recommended to adult(due to sexy times and violence)readers of paranormal romance.  Even though this is book two and I haven’t read book one yet, it really didn’t cause any problems. Good Read!

I’m a lifetime book addict and currently own nine Kindles, with only six still working. I do tend to wear them out! They pretty much are my favorite technology-well that and my cell phone. Okay, yes and my laptop. I spent most of my life in Kentucky, but moved to Maryland in my attempt to get closer to the the ocean a few years ago. Being retired helps. I have a B.S. degree in law enforcement with a minor in sociology, but never really worked in my major. Instead, I spent my entire adult life working in the medical field in some capacity. After retiring(early), I found my passion in reviewing books for a couple of blogs and I love it. My author favorites include, Dannika Dark, Amber Lynn Natusch, J.T. Geissinger, Colleen Hoover, Samantha Towle, K.A. Tucker, Karina Halle, Sarina Bowen, J.R. Ward, Mariana Zapata, Dianne Duvall, and I could go on and on. I read many different genre’s, but still like a romantic element in most, if not all of them.

I haven’t read this author yet, but I know how much you have enjoyed her books. I love the sound of the pack dynamics in this one most especially.

Great review

My favorites by her are her shifter books but she’s also got a really good demon book, a good vampire type series that’s really different and several others as well. I’m getting behind on them.

A series much enjoyed by a friend of mine, I wonder if she knows about this one. For myself, I know, I know, never judge a book by its cover, and yet I can’t seem to get past the cover.

I don’t read it all that often, not like I did when I reviewed for Rabid Reads. Certain authors I still do though.

Oh neat, a spinoff series! I really need to get busy reading the first series which I already have most of them on my Kindle. Great review, Lorna! 🙂

If I ever get back to a PNR mood, I’ll keep this in mind.

I know what you mean, I don’t read it near what I used to.

Another author I need to try. I will probably start with the Moon series.

That’s a good place to start her books. I started with her Night Walker books and liked those a lot as well. And a demon book I really liked.

Yeah pretty much but she was forced into the wolf part so there’s that.

Well it was book two and she also sent me book one. I read it out of order as this book was just releasing. I really enjoyed her Moon series so I was happy to jump into these.
