Being the tag-along on a camping trip with Heather and Graham is not what Cassandra has in mind for her long weekend. However, when a tall dark stranger with staggering green eyes shows up to lend a hand with her tent assembly from Hell, she has to rethink her predicament. Despite the mixture of excitement and apprehension he incites with his soul-startling stare, the possibility that she's just found her brawny Tarzan in the depths of Redwood National Park suddenly doesn't seem so absurd.
Cray feels an equally potent draw to the fiery red head with the soft hazel eyes, attractive features, and tempting shape. Despite his resolve, she provokes a primordial calling he's long sought to contain. He wants this female, he can't deny, but he knows giving in to such unabashed urges can lead to disaster, and he refuses to sentence this woman to his own horrid fate.
But just as is powerful as Cray's attraction is his unexpected surge of protectiveness. There's something about Cassandra's male friend that needles his suspicion. Graham invokes his predatory sense of dominance, and that doesn't bode well. If his instincts are correct, Graham is more than he appears and Cassandra's life is in danger.
In Lycan Lore, Shannon Leigh let’s her imagination flow and creates an intense situation that just gets better as the book progresses. Ms. Leigh is exceptional at setting her scenes; making her audience feel both Cassandra’s fear of the unknown and her excitement at meeting and getting to know Cray. We experience the thrills, chills, lust, trepidation and every other emotion each character goes through as Ms. Leigh takes her audience deeper into the woods and into the werewolf psyche. While on the surface Lycan Lore seems like a good vs. evil story, deeper exploration reveals layers hidden within the context of the tale that make it more interesting, and lead to an ending more exciting than one ultimately expects. I found myself falling in love with these characters, and hoping that theirs would be a truly happy ending.
