Tension grows between old rivals.
Cold-blooded murder sparks a feud that could lead to the deadliest civil war in Pack history. Alpha Devin Caedmon and his council are tempted to risk all that is precious to protect their bloodline. Tristan Arnou, the rival Pack’s leader, isn’t the only force trying to tear down the unity holding them together. All threats must be eliminated before their entire race is destroyed.
Forbidden love burns like a wildfire.
There is one woman who Blake DeLuca loves more than anything else: Naomi Valentine. Despite the escalating battle and power struggles among their leaders, the erotic fire between these two lovers has yet to be extinguished. Naomi’s heart belongs to Blake, but her allegiance lies with Arnou. She’s left with two choices…assume her duty or accept Blake’s eternal bond?
In Wolf’s Strength secrets are exposed, and memories that were buried long ago have resurfaced. The game of deception is a deadly one. There can be no peace until the bloodshed ends.
This book is part of a series but it’s getting to the point that if you want to understand the characters you should read this series in order. Do not attempt to read as a stand-alone – things will make more sense when reading the Caedmon Wolves in order.
Naomi Valentine is coming up upon her mate, Blake DeLuca. They each have an itch that needs scratching. And then it’s over way too soon – and that’s just the Prologue. Then the author turns up the heat by having the action start from the first chapter.
I will warn you that you may not want to be eating at that particular time. There is a fighting scene that’s just a little too graphic. Ambrielle has a way of writing a scene that has you feeling as if you are part of it. Especially when the scenes take place in the bar/nightclub – you can almost hear the music, smell the smoke, and feel the vibe of the people in the place. There’s just the right mix of sex and action that will make the story going by very quickly. And if you like a good werewolf tale, this author’s series will give you that.
By the time I got to the end of this book, it left me wondering what’s next for the Packs. Looking at Ambrielle’s web site, I couldn’t find if there will be a next book. So we’ll just have to be patient and you can always check out some of the other books she has written. (Reviewed by Lynn Reynolds from Romance Reader Enthusiast)
