    Ariel is a biochemist that goes to the Woods' family property at

    Ariel is a biochemist that goes to the Woods' family property at her sister's request to help her new mountain shifter lover's family to overcome their deadly desire to mate with any unmated female.  Ariel believes Krista needs psychological help and decides not to tell her that she is now divorced.




    When Ariel announces she is divorced shortly after arriving all hell breaks lose and the two unmated brothers Jack and Rob go after each other.  I love how Ms Harbin jumps right into the action with no delay.  All of her books proceed at a rapid pace with no time for drawn out semantics or dialogue.




    However, there were several parts of this story that were completely unbelievable.   Ariel decides to formulate a medication to keep them from being so sexually aggressive and decides she must sexually tempt one of them.  She selects Rob.  She brings just happens to have brought sexy night attire.  She masturbates, gets naked, and performs oral sex on Rob--all in the name of temptation?  I just couldn't visualize any scientist deciding to masturbate with underwear on in the name of testing a medication.




    Once she realizes that she develops feelings for Rob and the medication is working she hurts him by making him think that she believes he is subhuman and a beast.  Ms Harbin did an excellent job of portraying Rob's emotions.  She also realistically portrayed Ariel's fear of commitment and doubt that love exists.  I found myself angry with Ariel for not recognizing Rob's true value and his love while at the same time understanding how difficult it would be to embark on another relationship so soon after being jilted.  Ariel and Rob come back together, and with the help of medication Rob is able to delay mating with Ariel until she is ready.




    This is another short, hot read with enough plot twists to keep you glued to the book despite some of its far fetched dialogue.

    Returning to the Woods Family Tree farm, this book in the series

    Returning to the Woods Family Tree farm, this book in the series reveals even more about the origin of the family, their shifter traits and the efforts that they are willing to take to rein in the ‘mine or you die’ reaction the males of the family have when confronted with an available and unattached female.

    Created with more attention to characterization and history of the family, this was my favourite of the books so far, although each character has grown and developed through the life of the series, this is the first book that provides a new character that is essentially complete and complex. We meet Ariel, who arrives to conduct scientific research that she hopes (and the Woods hope) will provide her with insight into the brother’s inability to love them and leave them. Ariel is a “survivor” of a disastrous marriage, and feels that love is simply a chemical reaction that is incorrectly interpreted as an emotion. Of course, the scientific possibilities cannot be ignored, even as she also wants to test the sexual limitations and potential, all the while discounting the love that Rob spotted instantly.

    Again, a fast-paced read, full of sex, smart dialogue and imagery that will make your mouth water: the author has created a book that will challenge and excite while demanding you read more. Additional questions are answered that were posed and not answered in earlier books, and these are books that do need to be read in order. A fun series that takes the whole genre of shifter stories and turns them on their ear – in a good way.

    I was provided an eBook copy from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.
