Mia’s testimony against Russian mobsters forced her to enter the witness protection program. She is relocated to a quaint cottage in Wolf Woods, near Mt. Rainier, far from everyone and everything she loved and cared for. All is calm, until she meets Dominic, the gorgeous ruggedly handsome owner of the mysterious Wolfe Estate. He is all alpha male, domineering, and controlling. The last thing she needs is to get involved with a sexy control freak.

Alpha werewolf, Dominic Wolfe, is the packs’ enforcer. When an attractive young woman moves into a cottage near his territory; his senses are heightened to obsessive proportions. A human pet to meet his desires.

Dominic is determined to unveil Mia’s real identity while keeping his own securely hidden. Haunted by the howls and shrieks coming from Dominic’s estate, Mia wonders if she can really trust the enigmatic man she suspects of wanting a dominant-submissive relationship. A man who brings out her darker desires. Will hidden danger keep them from gratifying their burning passion?

A world so familiar and yet totally unlike anything I’ve read before.

Mia has lost a lot in a small space of time. She first appears to be a strong woman who stood up for herself in the beginning. As the story evolves and changes, I began to question the strength that originally drew me to her as a character. She stood up for herself in a big way once, I couldn’t understand why she allowed herself to be minimized in a very real way later in the story.

This book has a very unusual and unique paranormal background. For the most part, that was a plus. I felt a lot of different kinds of emotions (both good and bad) as I got further into Mia and Dominic’s story. What put a damper on the plot and the story is the use of the word ‘Pet’. It wasn’t necessarily an endearment like it is in some books. In this case, ‘Pet’ refers to ‘mistress’ or something to be owned, such as a human. Miss Gordon did a good job in trying to explain what ‘Pet’ actually means in Dominic’s world. The issue I had wasn’t so much with the word as with how it made me feel for Mia’s sake. Because she’s human, she would never be allowed to be more than a ‘pet’ or ‘mistress’ to Dominic. It wouldn’t matter that they were clearly drawn to one another and had chemistry to spare. Being human made her unacceptable in his society and the best she could ever hope to be was a ‘pet’. Never a mate, never a wife.

Dominic Wolfe is a werewolf. Not just kind of werewolf. He is the enforcer to the king. When he sees the newcomer in the cottage, there is an instant connection between both of them. Though the falling in love comes a lot later. He is protective and partial to her. When the plot starts unraveling the chemistry and the passion between Mia and Dominic heats up and with it the paranormal activity does the same. Dominic plays a crucial part is getting Mia to come out of her shell after she joins the Witness Protection Program.

Whenever she’s is in danger, Dominic goes into a protective state which is very sweet to see. There is BDSM in it but only small amount, very light.

Since this is a series, I would say Miss Gordon has done a good of keeping the suspense while satisfying the readers at the same time.

I would recommend it to readers who like their paranormal with a slight hint of BDSM
