Liza is Paladin, third in power in the Redhawke pack. Half witch, half werewolf, but without the ability to change forms, she has an acrimonious history with Caleb, the Alpha’s heir. Then one explosive night, they explore her interest in submission, but he leaves the pack. And her. Five years later, the Alpha orders Liza to bring Caleb home. The years of distance have not dulled his anger at her, or the heat that once flared between them.
Caleb is biding time before returning to Redhawke. It's pleasurably spent with his lover Zach. When Liza shows up, once again at his father’s bidding, he's angry and hurt, but he still wants her. This time he isn’t letting her go. Zach takes one look at the woman and knows she’s the one for them. But can he accept that her delicious submission in bed goes no further than the bedroom door?
Claimed by two werewolves, Liza struggles to move forward from the past with Caleb while getting to know Zach. But they'll have to respect her devotion to the pack and her warrior spirit if they're going to win her heart.
I love to read about strong women in romance. So often women, even those who claim to be strong and independent, crumple before their male counter parts and are in constant need of rescue. Liza is a wonderful exception to the rule. Not only does her history say she is strong, she proves it.
I also love the contrast between Caleb and Zach. The two complement each other, so that no matter the situation, cooler head prevail. Where Caleb is more serious, Zach is more easy going. It makes their interaction and their interactions with Liza entertaining to watch.
The sex is spicy with a light touch of bondage and menage. With the pairings and settings always changing, each scene is fresh and doesn’t feel like a retread of the same old moves.
Overall, a fun story and a joy to read.
