Description from the Publisher on Goodreads
A heart-pounding new series set in the Black Dagger Brotherhood world, with a scientist fighting to save the timber wolves—and getting caught in a deadly trap herself…
Lydia Susi is passionate about protecting wolves in their natural habitat. When a hotel chain develops a tract of land next to the preserve, Lydia is one of the most vocal opponents of the project—and becomes a target.
One night, a shadowy figure threatens Lydia’s life in the forest, and a new hire at the Wolf Study Project comes from out of nowhere to save her. Daniel Joseph is both mysterious, and someone she intrinsically wants to trust. But is he hiding something?
As the stakes get higher, and one of Lydia’s colleagues is murdered, she must decide how far she will go to protect the wolves. Then a shocking revelation about Daniel challenges Lydia’s reality in ways she could never have predicted. Some fates demand courage, others require even more, with no guarantees. Is she destined to have true love… or will a soul-shattering loss ruin her forever?
I will not given anything away about J.R. Ward’s new book in this review. Yes, it does take place in the same world as the Black Dagger Brotherhood series and you may, like me, get a bit spoiled about some of the characters in that series if you, like me, are not up to date BUT…..it really isn’t that big of a deal if you read this before catching up with the previous series.
This was really a slow burn but I enjoyed the storyline. There was a bit of mystery and suspense with J.R. Ward’s intense romance. It left off on a cliff hanger and now I have to wait until Summer 2022 to see what happens. I guess this is the perfect opportunity to catch up a bit in the BDB series!
I gave this book 4 crowns.
