Black Hills Wolves #41
Chance Northridge left Los Lobos more than ten years ago, deserting his family and his young, unclaimed mate. Now he’s back, upsetting their world.
But those he left behind don’t understand that the pack’s former insane Alpha threatened everything Chance cared about in the world. Still, he’s got some big-time groveling ahead of him.
Julie Pembroke has struggled hard to forget her disloyal mate’s desertion and to gain acceptance in the pack as a woman on her own, and making a new life for herself.
This is the first book after the murders and I really needed some normal. Okay so nothing in this world is really normal, but normal for them.
This book opens with Brick (Wolf’s Song), playing with his children, twins Autumn a cat cub and Clay a wolf pup. They are so adorable, I want to squeal. Then the playing has to stop so Brick can go bail his brother out of jail in Shady Heart – Cat Territory. Even though the Alpha Cal Seven is his wife Summer’s uncle, this was going to cost a lot of money.
Chance Northridge is yet another wolf who 10 years ago, left his family and mate behind. Hopefully protecting them from Magnum’s wrath. The former Alpha truly destroyed this pack from the inside out.
Dirty, sweaty, and sobering up is not the way Chance wanted to reunite with his family and pack, but that is was what was getting. But even before he makes it to Gee’s Bar to wait on the Alpha Drew and his enforcer Ryker, he feels his mate, in trouble and in pain.
Julie is not a weak woman. Even as her wolf howls mate, she knows she can’t just give in. He owes her at the very least an apology and explanation of why he left without a word.
One of my favorite scenes is with Gee, right before Julie walks in with her batch of cupcakes. It has a phrase that is repeated in various forms and very true with regard to Chance.
“Her mate?” Gee stared at him, his dark eyes going round as disks on a checkerboard. “You really must be the dumbest wolf on the planet.”
