A heart-pounding new series set in the Black Dagger Brotherhood world, about a scientist fighting to save the gray wolves—and getting caught in a deadly trap herself...
Lydia Susi is passionate about protecting wolves in their natural habitat. When a hotel chain develops a tract of land next to the preserve, Lydia is one of the most vocal opponents of the project—and becomes a target.
One night, a shadowy figure threatens Lydia’s life in the forest, and a new hire at the Wolf Study Project comes from out of nowhere to save her. Daniel Joseph is both mysterious, and someone she intrinsically wants to trust. But is he hiding something?
As the stakes get higher, and one of Lydia’s colleagues is murdered, she must decide how far she will go to protect the wolves. Then a shocking revelation about Daniel challenges Lydia’s reality in ways she could never have predicted. Some fates demand courage, while others require even more, with no guarantees. Is she destined to have true love...or will a soul-shattering loss ruin her forever?
Bestseller Ward keeps readers' hearts racing in the first paranormal romance of a sexy, action-packed spin-off series to her Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Lydia Susi has been running the Wolf Study Project in Walters, N.Y., on behalf of her absentee boss, and it's up to her to hire the preserve's new handyman. The moment Daniel Joseph walks in the door to interview, she knows she's in trouble but she has no idea how much. As her boss's continued absence gives rise to concern that something may have happened to him and the wolves suffer increasing ill-effects from the construction of a nearby resort, Lydia and Daniel team up to get answers and save the preserve. Along the way, the pair can't help falling for each other, but Daniel has his reasons for living as a drifter and Lydia knows he can't stay. Ward builds to a breathtaking finale with an impressively orchestrated twist, setting the bar high for the series to come. This emotional roller coaster does not disappoint.
“CLAIMED” BY J.R. Ward- JC 68!
Another outstanding read by Ms. Ward- an unusual blending of characters and it helps if you have read previous Dagger Brotherhood stories (which are great reads) by the way. Her sequel will really bring this story forward with her (2) main characters- can’t wait until that comes out. (5)🌟’s all the way. Thanks 👏🤩- Cincy Kid 68!
I expected more.
Let’s Face it JR Ward has set the bar pretty high. I’m a huge fan of her BDB series, but this book just didn’t do it for me. The slooooooow development of the story was annoying. The romance was pitifully infrequent. I felt like a just read a really long intro to a story. Like you read a book about wolf shifters and you only find out at the end who the shifter is?!?! I have it three stars because it has potential. But honest if it had been written by anyone else I likely would not have finished it.
Huge fan of JR Ward but this one left me wondering who was writing the story. Kept waiting for something to happen but it’s thread after thread going where? Then you reach the end and spoilers….. I’ll still tune in next year to see what happens next…
