Published by: Fated Desires Publishing, LLC
Maddox Jamenson almost lost his mate before he knew she existed, but his life is now exactly how he’d dreamed it. The war with the Centrals is over, and his family is healing one day at a time. Ellie is reveling in the simple perfection that is her life and family now, but that doesn’t mean she can shed the self-doubts and concerns that come with being a new mother, mate, and Redwood.
When a disturbance in their quiet life threatens to ruin everything they’ve fought for, Maddox and Ellie will have to learn not only to rely on each other more than ever, but find within themselves the power to forgive
I started this series in the middle somewhere, and I really cannot get enough. I now own, I think, the entire series and I have to go back and read them in order.
I loved this book the emotional exchange between Maddox and Ellie is palpable as is the love they have for each other and their adopted daughter, Charlotte.
In this book they are faced with different emotions brought forth by outside influences. First in trying to help a couple with the loss of their son, and later with the fear that their daughter had been kidnapped. The way they share through the mate bond shows how strong they can be when they help each other deal with the outside emotions.
A favorite passage:
“No one is in trouble. Well, you’re going to be grounded a bit,” Maddox said, and Charlotte wiggled between them.
Ellie met Maddox’s gaze and nodded. “Yes, baby, grounded. You can’t leave without telling an adult. A lot of people who might have been needed elsewhere were taken off their shifts to help find you. That’s not saying it wasn’t worth it because you know all of us would do it again to make sure you were safe.”
“No TV or cookies for two weeks,” Maddox answered. “You can play with your cousins because you’re a wolf and you need the pup play, but only at our house during that time.”
I cannot wait for the next book in this series. I know Carrie Ann has been hinting at the next one, so hopefully it won’t be too long a wait.
Once again Carrie Ann Ryan has earned 5 contented purrs from me!
