 Okay this was a short but really great read. Sam (Samantha) wants a life on her terms and to find a mate she and her wolf love but her family has other ideas. Chase basically got slammed with his feelings and I loved that he didn't fight it. Sometimes short reads have too much struggle and this one particular was just perfectly balanced. Even each of the siblings to me had their own unique feel to them vs just generic plot drivers I sometimes see. I LOVED it! Being a short read I really don't want to spoil the book for you by going into too much detail but I really enjoyed this book. I was in a horrible mood when I picked up the book to read it and it wasn't long before I was whisked away with Sam and Chase having a mini adventure and falling asleep with a smile to dream about the bear! Okay so I have thing with  for  about bears. You'll get it after you read the book. But it stuck with me and I've found myself re-reading a part of it this morning just to smile. 


Samantha Demakis doesn’t want a mate right now. Her birth-rite and family obligations to her status as the first daughter of a noble family beg to differ. In fact, even her wolf seems to be against her. When a chance encounter reveals the man who might just be a perfect fit, will she run? Or will she fight?

Chase Michaels has been alone for seventy-five years. He’s fought in Vietnam, the Persian Gulf, and Afghanistan in the US Army. Somewhat resigned to never finding his true mate, he is shocked when his wolf reacts so strongly to a woman he runs into in the airport. Unprepared for the politics and snobbery of the noble families, Chase finds himself fighting in a different type of war —a war for the heart of a woman he knows should be his.

A lot of things are chasing Sam, but who or what will catch her in the end?
