Roxie Noir (author)
4 1/2 Stars!
Sloane Garcia was hiking on the Pacific Crest Trail. She wanted to prove to herself that she could do it, after losing her job and breaking up with her boyfriend. Sloane discovers a young man in the woods with a dart/needle in his neck. After yelling for help, a naked man comes to her aid.
Austin Leed is a bear shifter that works on a wolf ranch called Double Moon Ranch. Austin has a mate that he is unable to tell his family about or claim as his own in public. After responding to Sloane’s call for help, Austin feels that she could be the one and wants his mate to meet her.
Sloane had plan to spend a few days at Double Moon Ranch. Sloane doesn’t know much about shifters, but she is attracted / interested in Austin. While spending a nice day with Austin and his mate and letting her guard down, Sloane has the day ruined. Since she found the young man, the police are quick to accuse and arrest Sloane. This causes Austin and his mate to decide what is important. The men must decide what secrets need to be exposed to save / protect Sloane and themselves as mates.
There are many secrets, both good and bad, that come out in this story. The characters learn important (life) lessons through out. (Whether it is to believe in herself and your dreams, to help others in need, & it ok to love who you want to love, etc). This is a wonderful end to the series, but can be read as a stand alone. Great ménage shifter read!
