Furnace: A Fated Mate Romance
Petal Olson was going right to the top of the corporate ladder. After nearly fifteen years of hard work, she’s now an executive at one of the biggest power companies on the West Coast. Her dreams are within reach, even if the journey has left her cold, distant, and single. When disaster strikes a critical hydro dam in a tiny community, it’s her job to be on the scene and supervise the recovery. Once there though, Petal quickly realizes things in sleepy little Surrey are anything but normal.
Alexander “Lex” Cronus is a werewolf and a power line worker. The forest-covered hills around his town allow him to run free and wild whenever he wants. He loves it, but lately he’s been wishing he wasn’t running alone. While he’s lived much of his life without a mate, when the big-time corporate hotshot arrives to coordinate the recovery efforts to his town’s power grid, Lex knows that everything has just changed.
When she uses her position to tag along on a survey expedition of the main line from the dam to the city, neither of them have any idea what will happen next. But after a second freak storm hits Surrey and they become trapped, Petal finds that all the authority in the world is useless. She must rely on the no-nonsense man who has already saved her life once if she hopes to get back alive. With the power out and the temperature outside dropping quickly, things between the two start to heat up.
Petal has a lot to learn about life in a small town, and even more to learn about this town. After all, things aren’t quite as they seem. Not even the weather…
It wasn't great but it wasn't terrible. I just wish authors were not so afraid of exposition and character detail. Help us to fall in love with the characters.
