In continuation to the Roxie's Protector's series Marisa Chenery brings readers book 4 and the related series Wulf's Den.
After accidentally finding his mate while stopped at a stoplight in the middle of a busy San Francisco intersection, Skylar has every intention of telling exact what he is and what it would mean to mate with him. As a werewolf of more than 1,000 years old he is one of the foretold one's, Roxie's, protectors and has vowed to protect her at all cost, but more than that anyone who mates with a werewolf is in for a life change. Aside from the whole there aren't suppose to be werewolves in real-life, there is the fact that once connected there is no turning back you are joined with your mate for life...a very long life.
Braelyn is a supermodel for Victoria Secret and on a vacation at home when she meets the very sexy Skylar. Once she finds out that he's a bodyguard of sorts, she wonders if he might not just want to become her new boyfriend, but also if he might be able to help her with a stalker.
I almost completely missed this continuation of the series, which would have been disappointing because I like the general theme and quick reads of both Roxie's Protectors and Wulf's Den. Luckily I happen to notice that the new book in the series, Kye's Heart, came out last week at Liquid Silver Books.
Skylar's Devotion didn't disappoint. This is a series that should really be read from the beginning because each of the books are short and the full story is told the snippets in each book. It won't take readers long to catch up. This book, however, only tells a little bit of the secondary series story and concentrates mostly on Skylar and his new ladylove Braelyn. Enjoy.
A famous Victoria's Secret fashion model, Braelyn comes home to visit her parents after being away for a year. On a shopping trip, a man on a motorcycle at the red light snags her attention while she crosses the street. When she draws even with him, he flips open the visor of his helmet, and she instantly forgets what she's doing. A blast from a car horn makes her aware she's standing in the middle of the crosswalk, and she quickly gets moving.
Skylar follows the beautiful blond with his gaze, watching where she goes. Sitting at a red light is not the place he expects to run into his would-be mate, but there she was. Determined not to let her get away, he follows her. He finds it hard enough to deal with her being mortal and not knowing anything about werewolves, but the bigger problem is the stalker who wants to do his famous mate more harm than good.
