Author: Jacky Russell
Genre: Paranormal/ Shifter/ Romantic Suspense
Publisher: Lyrical Press
Breanna is a one of a kind earth witch in a world where witches aren't too popular and many times killed on site. Lucky for Breanna she's won the respect of a group of werewolves and a few vampires in the Bravo Unit. On a scouting mission, Breanna comes upon a wolf being attacked by black magic creatures.
When Lucas opens his eyes the first thing he sees is an angel. The two have an instant attraction. the only problem is werewolves and witch don't match and worst of all a werewolf alpha cannot mate with a witch.
Lucas has a bit of his own problems. His father wants him to be involved with a pack Lucas feels no connection with. The year before his brother who was to be alpha disappeared and feared dead. That leaves Lucas to take his place. Lucas isn't interested in being the pack alpha. He doesn't even like being around other werewolves.
Can two misfits find their way together against all odds?
Wonderful characterization and world building in this novel length book. Lucas is a strong hero with lots of insecurity issues that work right along with Breanna's tough warrior persona.
A WITCH AND A WEREWOLF. A PACK OF TWO.
Master Sergeant Breanna Welker loves hockey games, cheesy fries, and being second in command of the U.S. Army's Bravo Company. The fact that her commanding officer is a vampire and most of her fellow soldiers are werewolves doesn't slow her down a bit. Her colorful vocabulary and uncompromising loyalty have endeared her to her unit, who don't give a damn she's a shape-shifting witch.
Lucas Benelli can't boast the same loyalty from the people close to him. His father is the Alpha of the largest known werewolf pack in the world--a pack Lucas is expected to be the leader of. But Lucas has spent most of his life avoiding contact with his father's pack and they don't seem to like him much either.
Together, they forge a connection not even Lucas's dysfunctional pack or Breanna's meddling unit can break--and come face-to-face with the hardest choice either of them has ever had to make.
CONTENT WARNING: Includes a horde of evil witches, and one deliciously wicked witch with Mother Nature at her beck and call.
