Her past has taught her to be wary…
With an abusive relationship behind her, wolf shifter Leslie is quietly raising her young son in the Kendrick pack. If she’s occasionally lonely, it’s a small price to pay for her son’s safety. And if she’s secretly longing for pack alpha Malcolm Kendrick, well…she’s keeping that fantasy to herself. Experience has made her a realist, and they’re far too different to work.
This alpha is about to stake his claim…
She has no idea Malcolm wants her just as fiercely. That he’s been subtly courting her for a year. But subtlety has gotten him nowhere—even if he thought it was the best choice after what she’d been through. He wanted to make sure Leslie didn’t feel obligated to him, that she was truly ready to move on. Now that he knows she is, he’s determined to make sure it’s with him. And when a threat from her past surfaces, he’ll eliminate anyone who would dare to hurt his mate.

I love how this author was able to show a very dominant wolf shifter hold back on that dominance for the better of his mate. It really showed how patient a true mate would be in order to make sure they never harm their significant other.
Leslie was badly abused by her previous mate. She's new to the pack and and is completely clueless to how much Malcolm wants to make her his. He never wants Leslie to chose him out of fear, so it took a lot for him to be patient and wait for her to heal and be ready to give love another chance.
This was a great way to have an instant love connection turn into a slow burn romance. It was entertaining to see such a confident alpha stumble in his attempt to whoo Leslie.
I love this series! Malcolm has a ton of responsibility as Alpha. Leslie has much to overcome. They are so good when they come together! Malcolm is possessive and sweet. Leslie has had some huge obstacles to overcome. The story to their HEA is filled with a little suspense and drama.
