Rating: 5 Cups
Ashlei is the town doctor, and the only non-shifter in a town of weres. Her family of feline-shifters is worried she will never have a mate. The new sheriff seems horrified to learn Ashlei does not shift. Luckily for her, he does not know how hurt she was by his reaction.
Seth, an alpha wolf, is letting his brother run his pack while he enjoys being a small time sheriff to a town of shifters. It is Ashlei, though, who keeps him in a state of arousal. Now he has waited long enough and is about to have his beautiful doctor…if only he can convince her he is serious.
The alpha in hiding sheriff and the non-shifting doctor throw sparks off each other from the beginning, but considering their different upbringings, they may not understand each other. Ashlei is tired of being overlooked sexually, but has her pride and is strong enough to stand up to the new sheriff…if he cannot appreciate her.
Run out to buy Haven: Rules Of Mating right now! The characters are compelling, even though I think Ashlei should have told her family and friends “see ya” a long time before. Another enjoyable aspect is how different Sheriff Seth is from the shifters in the town. This is really well written. The rural setting marks the town’s isolation and is helpful with the killer sub-plot and sequel. The sex is volcano hot with some scenes so good readers will find themselves flipping back a few pages to read it again. The book is an interracial one, but it is the wolf versus feline dynamic and how they are raised that is the focus. There has to be a sequel, and I am looking forward to reading it.
