Can they find the magic in a practical union?
West is on the run from his werewolf pack, but if he cannot renew his magical defenses, he won’t get far. What he needs is a mage….
Julian is part of a wealthy and ancient family, and one day, his legacy will include his mother’s vast library of spell books—and the knowledge he needs to correct his past mistakes. But his inheritance comes with a stipulation: he has to be married before he can collect. What he needs is a husband….
West and Julian can help each other, and at first they don’t want anything further. But as they dodge meddling cousins, jealous rivals, and an insidious drug, it becomes clear that their lives are entwined in ways they never imagined—and they’re in greater danger than they thought possible.
The Mage and his Wolf
Take one runaway wolf and one prudish mage. Add a couple of gold digging cousins, a blast from the past, a kidnapper, and a mysterious benefactor for the dark side, and you got one dynamic book.
You know how spaghetti is better the next day? That’s what this book is like. It’s better starting with chapter 2. The first chapter was a bit confusing, but when you press in and move forward it gets better and better with each chapter. By the middle of the book I couldn’t put it down. All the action and drama and mystery kept me on the edge of my seat.
I loved West, the wolf. He has such a big and gentle heart. He’s also a man of few words, but his actions speak louder, as the saying goes. Julian is a real character. He was a lot of fun to read. He’s outlandish and outspoken and spoiled and high maintenance, but he’s loyal to a fault and he fights for what he wants no matter what the cost. You wouldn’t imagine him as an alpha but that’s what I think. He’s the alpha and West is like the Omega. Together they are a force to be reckoned with and that is put to the test more than once. Their ‘battles’ are lot of fun to read.
