From the unorthodox author Eri Nelson comes an introduction into the dark primal world of the DHC (Dearhart Clan Series). Where an adult tale creates the foundation for untamed passions no longer bound by humanity but unleashed under the push of extinction.
An unknowing waitress by the name of Kristen Still slips of to sleep with her illusions of normality. Only to be awoken by heated dreams for an unknown traveler’s face who had visited the diner in which she works. Although as the dream subsides her reality is disrupted by a wolfly protector unmasking a deadly mistake in which held Kristen against her will.
Under uncontrollable duress the wolf unfurls to, Owen, the man from her dreams. With fear and doubt discarded under their hastily following pursuers, Kristen flees with Owen’s guidance only to learn more than she had ever bargained for let alone the desires she and Owen create.
Owen went into the diner to get some breakfast but he got more than he bargained for. Kristen Still is an overworked waitress. Owen is more than a man and he has an agenda that involves Kristen.
Eri lets the reader know early on how sexual Owen’s kind is. And as you read the two books that follow, you will find that this is a series that must be read in order. I’m also speaking from personal experience – I tried reading this series out of order but when I read this book, a lot of things made much more sense.
One of Eri’s characters is named Wash and this book shows how he develops into the character you see in book three. Reading this book definitely changed my mind about this series and it gives me high hopes for book two. If you like a paranormal series that is not a stand-alone, you will want to read this one. The book is short enough that you can finish it in just a couple of hours. (Reviewed by Lynn Reynolds from Romance Reader Enthusiast)
