Forbidden Passions, book two
Published December 7th 2010 by Samhain Publishing
She ran straight into love’s arms…and he isn’t letting her go a second time.
When his mate and his father died in a freak accident, Jason Leonidas left home and became a park ranger in the Florida Panhandle. The distance and solitude suit him. After all, the less he cares, the less he hurts.
As a hurricane bears down on the coast, he races to secure and evacuate the park before conditions worsen. Just as that point of no return passes he discovers an injured and unconscious visitor. Celeste Lykaios, his mate…who died over a year ago.
Truth has turned Celeste’s world upside down. Not only did her family lie to Jason about her survival, they lied to her about his abandonment. And the new boyfriend she’d trusted is trying to kill her. Her only hope was to race into the teeth of the storm to find Jason. She almost made it.
As she and Jason unravel the betrayal that split them apart, the ragged strands reconnect, forming a fragile hope that their love can be salvaged. Out in the storm, the killer waits for a chance to make Celeste the stunning finale in a plan to overthrow the Lycan alpha…
This book has been previously published and has been revised from its previous release.
Warning: This book contains smokin’ makeup sex, a hot leopard shifter, a deadly hurricane, and one deranged killer.
So... you're a human female who has just witnessed your best friend murder a woman with his bare hands, your family confessed that your mate has spent the last year thinking you were dead, you're about to lose your deceased father's land, and there's a deranged shifter after you. It's a hurricane season, so what's the natural response to your situation? Go to the beach!
The heroine's thought process in this story didn't make a whole lot of sense to me at first. That's a pretty wacky thing to do given the predicament. Then, I couldn't figure out why the blurb referred to the killer as her boyfriend... amnesia of course! 3 out of 5 stars.
