Cover Description:

He was broken by the war. She has a secret that will destroy her family.

Ex-Marine sniper Jared River left the war, but the war never really left him. He’s a broken wolf who’s only good for one thing now—killing men. And he’s peering down his scope at Senator Krepky, the anti-shifter politician about to ruin the lives of all the shifters Jared loves.

Grace Krepky is the daughter of the Senator, a good girl with a passion for her father’s politics and who’s earned her way into being his campaign manager. Only problem? She’s secretly a shifter… and the clock is ticking until her own father inadvertently forces that secret into the open, ruining both their lives.

Jared’s all set to pull the trigger when he sees something shocking through the Senator’s glass walls—his daughter is a wolf. Jared puts his gun aside to go after the fleeing girl, but he already knows this can only end in one of two ways—either he’ll convince her to reveal herself to the Senator and stop his anti-shifter legislation, or Jared will have to assassinate her father.

If only she wasn’t making him come alive again…

Only readers over 18 should dive into the deliciously hot world of the River brothers.

Read on for my thoughts on Jared.  No true spoilers, promise.

Jared watched the Senator through his scope.  All that was delaying that evil man’s death was the woman in his office having a heated arguement.  He’d been in this spot for hours and the decision to end the Senator’s life was his alone.  It was what he did, as an ex-military sniper he could take out this threat to his family, his pack and shifters everywhere.  It had to be done eventually and he’d decided this was the Senator’s night to die… until that woman left the office and appeared in another upstairs window – and for a quick, brief moment shifts.  Shifted.  What the… ?  Someone in the Senator’s family was a shifter, known or unknown to the man whose sole purpose was to eradicate all shifters.  Soon his excellent sight spotted a woman running from the back of the house toward the forest and Jared made the split second decision to allow the Senator to live one more day – and took off after the escaping woman.

Jared and Grace’s romance brings River Pack Wolves to a stunning conclusion.  Grace’s struggle as a completely lone shifter will break your heart.  And the opening of Jared’s heart will certainly make you smile and root for this couple to make it in spite of the obstacles in their path.  To go into much detail about this story would give away conclusion spoilers that I don’t want to let those slip.  If you have followed this series then you will find Jared to be a most satisfying wrap up for this part of the overall story… But, there is another series, connected that begins soon so keep an eye out for the release of the Wilding Pack Wolves.

If you enjoy Paranormal Shifters stories, strong heroes and heroines and an intense, sensuous and entertaining story then you need to pick up Jared (and if you haven’t read the entire series, they can stand alone to some degree but are best read in order).
