After defeating the bears in Sanctuary, Kimberlyn, Logan, Andrew, and Elijah discover new passions and have a few peaceful months exploring their deep love and hot passions.
The peace ends when Kimberlyn stumbles upon a vampire who begs Logan for asylum, and Logan has no choice but to grant it. The vampire has a hidden agenda, and once he has Kimberlyn addicted to him, the wolves must keep him alive at any cost. If he dies, Kimberlyn dies.
With the vampires comes the wolves’ fifth -- and a whole new set of problems when Kimberlyn refuses to share her men, can’t get enough of the vampire, and finds new desires with this unusual addition to the pack.
The characters in this story come off kind of flat; they have a set traits and do not very from them. This leaves Kimberlyn looking bi-polar swinging from an absolute pacifist to a murderer with a hair trigger, while Elijah lacks depth of any kind.
The plot is more or less missing in action. Several elements are introduced, then dropped without explanation or exploration. The most obvious example is the history between Andrew and the vampire. Something happened, but after apologies are exchanged, it is never brought up again or explained beyond the most vague way.
As for the sex, it is good, if a bit overused. Whole chapters are dedicated to the characters getting cozy, while adding nothing of real merit to the story. Sex is good, sex is fun, but this story is too long to be supported on erotica alone.
Overall, this story is pretty average.
