Synopsis:

Jonathan Winchester has clashed with his alpha one too many times. After another argument he leaves the Manitoba pack, his only home since the werewolf attack that changed his life. He returns to his home state of Virginia to start a new life free of pack politics. Jon finds work and meets a young waitress, Raine, who appears to be a lone werewolf, too. As their relationship progresses, Jon’s embroiled in more intrigue than he bargained for and a danger bigger than he can handle. He's running scared until his own alpha tendencies surface, making him unable to leave the pretty werewolf’s problems behind. The young man is desperate to save Raine—even if his efforts may lead him straight to death

 

My Review:

This novella was a free download for subscribing to the author's newsletter. Despite not being convinced by the whole werewolves and vampires combined thing, I was pleasantly surprised - it's actually much much better than I'd anticipated. The characters are well developed and intriguing and the story held my interest throughout. It's exciting and suspenseful with just the right amount of romance/sex.

 

After reading this prequel, I'm looking forward to getting to know more about the V V Inn and the characters.
