A race against biological time…

After being used to a life of luxury, Anastasia Trumane has the silver spoon ripped from her mouth. And she couldn’t be happier. Hard work fills her with unexpected pride, opening a world of new beginnings and hopefully redemption for her past. But when she sees her old Dom, Lucien Wolf, old hurts surface.

Lucien Wolf is a Dominant who gets what he wants. He’s found his mate in Bruno Hunter, but their bond isn’t complete. They both need Anastasia. Years ago, Lucien unknowingly started the mating bond with Anastasia. An unbreakable bond. One that would hurt them all if not completed.

One woman, two wolves, a triad forged in kink.

This story brings us many characters from the fairytales that we grew up reading. It seems it is Cinderella’s step-sister, Anastasia’s birthday and she just might get her wish tonight. If only she listens to her heart and not her other sister. Lucien Wolf made the mistake of letting Anastasia go once before, this time he is not making the same mistake and with the help of Bruno Hunter he is going to win her heart back. Will the men be able to show Anastasia the truth before it is too late or will she shut them out forever?

Red Riding Hood is one of my favorite fairy tales and I always look for re-tellings of the story.  I really enjoyed the premise of the world the author created but I felt that the characters lacked depth and I didn’t fall in love with them as much as I’d hoped, so wasn’t pulled into their story.  I did enjoy the way the characters were presented and the many twists this story has. More, it is a hot read. The sexual tension is high between the three and the love that they feel is evident in all that they do and say. Even though this story was not a favorite it was interesting to see how the author transformed many of the characters from old fairy tales. I would not hesitate to return to this world to meet other characters and see where their paths may lead.
