I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I know we are getting into the thick of things with Christmas season so to divert your attention today I have a short paranormal romance I would recommend checking out. You can’t beat a diversion that contains a hot Alpha wolf. For my full review check it out after the book blurb:
Corliss Rumdone hides behind her status as Healer to avoid the normal wolf pack hierarchical challenges. A forced mating changes the course of her life. Instead of Raymond, the beta wolf selected for her, she mates with Liam—her best friend and heir to the Alpha pair.
Liam whisks them away to a shifter retreat so they can allow the mating bond to settle in private. But interference from those seeking power and two terminal children arouse past hurts and challenge their new relationship. Even their home is not the haven it should be as Liam must watch Corliss fight for the right to remain his mate. For one healer, death becomes a weapon to balance life.
Corliss is being forced into a marriage she desperately does not want. When her intended doesn’t show the Alpha’s son, Liam, takes his place. Corliss is shocked because Liam is her best friend and long time crush. She can’t imagine how this will be permitted when she is so low in the pack hierarchy and he is the Alpha’s son. Liam has a plan. He takes Corliss away so that they can finish the mating bond without being bothered by any of the pack. Corliss at first thinks Liam is doing this a some sort of joke until he realizes that she is who he has always wanted and couldn’t stand her being forced to marry anyone else. While they are on their hideaway a few challenges come up. She must try to heal two children and a sorcerer tries to take her powers. Not to mention the moment they return, Corliss is challenged to the death to be Liam’s mate. Can the challenges these two meet strengthen their bond or will it tear them apart?
This was a really enjoyable read. I liked the love story that was mixed so well in with the paranormal. This is definitely a relatable story to any woman who has ever loved someone and hoped that one day they would say they loved them too. The depth of Corliss’s character and the growth of Liam’s was done so well you could almost see how the mating effected them both. This is a fairly quick and easy ready but it’s so well done you really hope that Beth Caudill does more. I know I’d love to see more of Corliss and Liam along with their friends. Overall, it is a good read that any PR fan will enjoy.
