Kameron and Vanessa
I own both the eBook and the Audiobook – this review is written after listening to the audio version of this book.
This is my first book by this author, so I was unsure what to expect, I was not disappointed. The book starts with Travis Kameron the Alpha of the Crescent Moon Pack waking up in wolf form in a cage with no memory of how he got there – to make matters worse his senses have become dull but most importantly, he has lost the ability to shift back into his human form!
In the cage opposite, he could see a white wolf, a female with the most incredible green eyes, she was watching him but refused to answer when he tried to speak to her via a mental link. She was Vanessa Burns, she had been there for a long time, she didn’t know how long because the men keeping her there, kept drugging her. Her brother Aiden, the Alpha of the Outlander Pack was the only person she thought might be looking for her but had it been too long, had he given up by now? Vanessa feared she couldn’t last much longer, she’s been drugged so many times, they drugged her to wake up, to make her sleep, she’s been beaten countless times and shocked by a vicious shock collar just as many, but being raped by Dominic the leader of these men was the worst point of her captivity.
Dominic runs an illegal fighting ring and forces shifters to fight or die Vanessa has lost count of the lives she has taken to survive but she knows she’s getting weaker and soon she will be the one to die. Her greatest regret is that she will never see the pup she is carrying.
Over time a connection/bond forms between Travis and Vanessa, Travis leans which pack she is from, her father killed his father but was then killed by her brother. Her father was a cruel and terrible man who had made her life hell. Will Travis hold her father’s sins against her?
Days pass, they don’t know how many but the day comes when they are put in the ring together, they are supposed to fight to the death – but neither will fight the other. Then just as Dominic is about to shoot one of them they are rescued by her brother Aiden and members of his pack.
What follows is a moving and exciting story about love, betrayal, and learning to trust set against a background of family love, hate and distrust. A really well written and enthralling story.
The narration of this book by Rebecca Winder was excellently done, she managed to capture the essence of the characters together with their feelings which added to my enjoyment of this very well written paranormal love story.
