Summary

Hope is a young woman on the brink of a successful career as a jeweler. The last thing she needs right now is trouble, but trouble finds her when she's caught trespassing on private property. Bad luck is following her like a menacing cloud, and the only way to survive the storm is to walk through it. 

Tak is a fish out of water in the city, but settling unfinished business with an old friend means leaving tribal land and traveling to Austin. Things heat up after a chance meeting with a captivating woman who commands his attention. Hope is intelligent, unpredictable, and knee-deep in trouble. Instead of burying the hatchet with his old friend, Tak risks everything to protect a woman he barely knows. 

Two shifters are on a collision course with destiny, but will the sins of their past prevent them from having a future?

Love takes courage.

Tosh

Absolutely dire!! What a load of tosh! I actually went in believing the reviews. The narrator was terrible and the story awful.

The Alpha

A great second book in the new series, Hope funds her strength and herself. Fights and struggles along the way, she finds she can rely on herself. Read brilliantly by Nicole Poole who brings all these stories alive. 👍👍👍👌

Average

I usually love Dannika Dark books, but this one just seemed a little lacking. Didn’t feel the relationship, and the plot didn’t engage me. It was still ok, just not as good as normal.

A Suspenseful & Romantic Read!😲🔥💘

As you'd anticipate, Nicole Poole did an amazing job in bringing all of the characters & emotions to life!😍

This was a worthy story for both Hope & Tac. They were looking for redemption from past mistakes & needed to forgive themselves. Their bond was full of heat but also a deep respect. This story line was full of red herrings that kept the suspense high. I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish.😍

I'm finding myself more & more invested in this new series, it's really no surprise!😁🌟

Amazing as always.

First off Nicole Poole is an amazing narrator. Truly bring these characters to life. Tak and Hopes story is not what I expected and I enjoyed it more because of that. Dannika Dark is one of my favorite authors because she always surprises you. Highly recommend. Can’t wait to see where she goes with this series.

Great Series

Once again the author produces a winner! Hope and Tak make great characters and are perfect for each other. The struggles they face are what makes them perfect for each other. I’m looking forward to what is ahead of them on their journey.

Love This Series, Dannika Dark is a Great Author!!

This Author is so good I keep purchasing her Audible books. This one Did Not Disappoint, Really enjoyed the Character Tak who is stubborn and Gentle. Tak is a Alpha with so much Spirt, Soul, & a Good Gental Heart. The Narrator Nicole Pool does one of the Best jobs of being a Narrator and I love listening to her read these books!

Loved it!

This has been one of my favorite books so far. I love Hope and Tak's story. Two imperfect people, perfect for each other. I hope for another book in this series. The narrator did a great job as well.

Another great one!

It is so much fun to return to Austin Texas and get to hang out with the Westin pack again. Hopes story is very different than Mels and very enjoyable that it took place in Austin. Got scenes with all my favorite Coles except Reno and the ladies. I really enjoyed going to Howlers again. Now with the Twins heading to Alaska what are we in for?
