Raff never wanted a lot out of life; his pack, his family and to be accepted for who he was. Yes, Red Wolves were smaller, skinnier and weaker than other shifters, but they were also extremely rare. Which is why, when he was banished from his home pack and family, he made a point of staying away from other wolves. But living rough, without any money, is really hard and when Raff risks a trip into San Antonio to find some cash work, he quickly wished he hadn’t. Although, thanks to his dog Killer, he did meet up with the Alpha Mate of the local pack. Maybe, just maybe his life would take a turn for the better.
Nereus was almost as old as the sea itself, but he made a point of visiting friends whenever he could. A chance visit to the wolf pack at San Antonio put him in the path of his mate, and Nereus grabbed the little man as quickly as he could. But Raff was new to the pack and when Scott and Madison get kidnapped and the men from Cloverleah zap into town, Nereus can’t help but wonder if Cloverleah might offer his new mate a safer place to live.
Back in Cloverleah, Teilo is pleased his brother is mated, but it’s not as though he has a chance to go and look for a mate himself. He’s settled in his home and loves to run in his wolf form. Although, when he gets bitten by a teacup poodle with the ridiculous name of Killer, he wonders what other surprises are going to jump out of the bushes at him. He didn’t expect to find two mates.
A crazy serial killer with no scent; danger for Raff at every turn and a landlocked beach? The men at Cloverleah are in for some pleasant and not so pleasant surprises. Throw in four dogs and the gorgeous bear cub and all of the men in Cloverleah are going to have to be on their toes.
(Warning: M/M/M menage: violence, graphic intimate situations between men and an attempted rape of one of the MCs. Also features a teacup poodle who thinks he’s an alpha, a serial killer who believes in mpreg and a merman with a beautiful tail).
A note to readers: This book is based partially on a time line from Angel in Black Leather Pants. It is not necessary to have read that first, but if you have, don’t be surprised at the overlap. Also, because of the timeline of the book, it is written in two parts. Part one is in San Antonio where Raff and Nereus meet. Part Two is in Cloverleah where Raff and Nereus meet up with Teilo.
Lisa Oliver keeps blowing me away with this series. I think this may be my favorite on yet. It has danger, love, lust, and so much humor in this bookthat it is hard not to read it all in one sitting.
Raft and Nereus made an appearance in the last book but not much was given away about them other then a crazy man trying to get his hands on Raff because he is a red wolf and believes that he can have pups. Other then that they was only in the book long enough for the readers to want to know more about them. And boy did we ever get that and so much more in this book.
Nereus in a merman and the son of a famous God Poseidon. But he is also the nephew of Death, Hades, and several other famous Gods. Not mention the son of Abraxas the horse of the sun God also. So yeah a pretty unique bloodline. But not only is Raff and Nereus mates, but they have a third mate and he is part of the Cloverleah Pack, Teilo.
Having two very strong mates like Nereus and Teilo would normally make Raff feel small but the opposite has happened now that they are all mated. He feels stronger and more confident because of them. But their is still danger waiting for Raff in the shadows and all three of these men will have to fight the gates of hell to be able to stay together.
This is another amazing read by Lisa Oliver and as always I cannot wait for the next book to come out. If the next book is even half as good as the this one then it is going to be another exciting read.
