Being held captive for winter never felt so good.

Lili is on her way to her cousin’s wedding when she thinks she hit a man in the road. Leaving the safety of her car to check on him turns out the be a big mistake, and pretty soon Lili is being abducted and held against her will by a super-sexy wolf who her body longs to touch. But just because he’s hot doesn’t mean she’s going to remain a captive.

Cade is not just an alpha, he’s a very wealthy man, used to getting what he wants. So when he attempts to abduct his ex-friend’s fiancé, in an attempt to teach him a lesson, he doesn’t expect to wind up with the wrong woman. Just how did he wind up with the maid of honor? And why does the woman melt every inch of him? But when the woman escapes, real danger awaits. And Cade must convince her to see beyond his deception if he wants to keep her alive.

This was a great book! Maybe a bit shorter than I would’ve preferred, but it was wonderfully written, with absolutely everything that I expect to find in a shifter story.

The story was fast paced and packed with heat. Five years ago, Cade’s fiancee claimed to be having an affair with his best friend. Now that his old friend is getting married, Cade is looking for some payback by stealing the bride before the wedding. His plot goes awry when his packmates grab the wrong woman. Instead of the bride, they kidnap Lili, the cousin and maid of honor. The plan backfires and bites him in the butt, when Cade realizes that Lili is his mate. The chemistry between them was hot and the love scenes fairly sizzled. Alpha Cade is busy scrambling cause he knows that when the truth inevitably comes out, Lili is bound to be hurt. There was also some suspense to the story as Cade’s enemies target Lili.

I enjoyed the humor in this one and found myself chuckling at some of Lili’s antics. How she reacted to the wolves was freaking hilarious. She was a firecracker and not about to be a pushover for anybody. Big old alpha Cade is stunned when she stands up to him, and I enjoyed watching her one-up everybody. As the alpha of his pack, Cade is used to getting his way but his audacious mate isn’t backing down. Now he’s in a tight spot and I loved watching him squirm.

The author did an excellent job of pulling me into the story. I got a few chuckles and was totally captivated by the characters. For a short story, I was surprised at how easily I got caught up in this one. Brilliant writing, I’m sure. I loved the sexy alpha wolf. I loved the sassy heroine. The plot was engaging and has me wanting more. Overall, it was a fun sexy read that I enjoyed immensely. Looking forward to more from Milly Taiden.

I loved it and recommend it to all the shifter fans that are bound to love it too.
