The legacy he must obey...
The child she must save...
The man who threatens to fulfill her every fantasy...
and break her heart.
Alpha wolf Ridge Addison left his wife in Las Vegas, vowing to put their one reckless night of passion behind him and return to his clan. Thirteen years later he needs a divorce so he can become pack leader. Yet he's never forgotten the sensuous witch whose life he saved...or the knee-buckling kisses he still craves.
After they parted, Abigail tried banishing Ridge from her memory. Now her heart belongs only to her son. But when the boy is kidnapped, she knows she alone can't save him. Though Abigail's body still aches for Ridge, she's willing to give him his freedom in exchange for his help. But who will shield her heart from the only man she's ever let claim her, body and soul?
What happens in Vegas....doesn't stay in Vegas....Ridge and Abigail are case in point. Theirs was a wild and fun beginning. Wolf meets witch, saves witch, after a night of partying Elvis marries them and then everything kind of explodes from there. Ridge is a rare guy, a guy who wants to settle down and have family...and guy who actually craves it. He's also a guy who doesn't know that he's half way there. Abby....well she needs a good clunk on the head. She pushes everything away and has done that most of her life. Now, her son is kidnapped and Ridge is the only person that can help her, a knight in shining armor! Lies and half truths can't prevent either from their goals; in the end it takes one smart kid to point things in the right direction.
To me this was major role reversal; it's usually the guy that has commitment issues not the girl. Change is good! The story is delightful, even if a bit predictable in some places, but still a good read. The ending was cute, needless to say that I've gained a respect for teenagers.
The audio was fun. I laughed out loud causing a few stares in my direction. I must admit to not liking the sound of Sasha Dunbrook's voice at the beginning of the story, it had a whinny undertone to it. But by the third chapter I had notice that she acts well, using inflection in her tone and distinguishing the multiple voices so that you know who is narrating, and which character is speaking. She even made Ryan's voice sound younger, the perfect age for a new teenager. If you have enjoyed Michele Hauf in the past you will continue to do so, weather in print or audio, this is a must read.
