Sandy Parks is a contributing member of her pack. Her daughter is married to the alpha, which gives Sandy status. The only thing missing from her life is the touch of a man, a mate who will provide her with love and companionship, and sex.
Ralph Hipp has had his eye on Sandy for years. He’s protected her from a distance, but now it is time to make his intentions known. But he doesn’t count on the reaction that interest gets. Can love be better the second time around?
This was one of the better reads. The only thing that kept it from a perfect score was Beth, Sandy’s daughter. I understood the need for conflict to move the story along, but I just wanted to smack the woman. Her attitude toward her mother and Ralph was just too much, even if she was queen bitch. And she earned that title, believe me.
The romance between Ralph and Sandy made my heart go pitter patter. He was forceful but loving. She was careful but not shy. The sex was fabulous with a desperate, animalistic sense about it. This was a romance I was sad to see end, and would like to see more of this caliber focused on couples who aren’t young and foolish, but mature and know what they want. And go for it.
Sandy Parks accepts her widow status in the pack. Her daughter’s success and status as queen bitch give Sandy the status she needs to lead a good life. Only one thing is missing—the touch of a werewolf, the companionship of a mate.
Ralph Hipp is tired of simply protecting Sandy from a distance. Too many strays chance upon her, hoping for a nibble from the youthful-looking widow. It’s time to make his move, show her this old werewolf still has a few tricks up his sleeve.
Together they prove life and love can be hotter second time around.
