She outran her memories. She couldn't outrun her past.
"Legacy, Book 3"
Shelley is a killer. Never mind that her crime freed her from thirty-five years of brutal captivity the bounty hunters on her trail don't care. For the first time in her life, she is on her own, free to put the past behind her and explore what it means to be a werewolf.
James Riley is dead tired. After a week untangling legal and financial affairs his brother s death left behind, he s feeling every ounce of his new responsibility as Wolf Creek pack alpha. He s not too tired, though, to notice his sexy waitress is a werewolf one that strangely doesn't recognize him as one of her own kind.
After his questions rattle her composure and get her fired, Shelley figures the least James can do is drive her to the next town, but he wants more. He wants to take her home. And despite her fear, something inside her is irresistibly drawn to his commanding yet gentle presence.
James is willing to give Shelley all the time she needs to embrace her heritage, her sexuality, and eventually his love. But her past will not be denied...and her secrets demand a price paid in blood.
Another good story for the #3 book of the series.
I can not tell to much or I will give away a key point that readers should figure out for themselves but it is shocking, sad, & happy all at the same time.
James is moving across several states setting up some financial meetings to get things situated after moving from Chicago to NC in Wolf Creek. As he is headed back to NC he stops at a diner in Kentucky to grab a bite to eat. As he does so he is awestruck by the waitress. She is a werewolf & an unmated one at that. The boss treats her like crap & James standing up for her gets her fired which also gets her evicted since she was renting the apartment from her boss. Shelley (waitress) ends up on the road with James but she has a terrible secret & is very fearful especially when they have to go through Tennessee. She escaped a horrible life & has been running for her life & trying to put all the bad memories behind her. Shelley has no idea who she is or where she came from all she knows is the horrible past that started around the age of 15.
James is determined to help Shelley. She is very patient & kind to her. Taking everything slow as werewolf possible. This is a struggle for James since he is very attracted to Shelley. He senses a lot of abuse in her past & tries not to push things to fast for her. He has witnessed her fear, cry, & panic attacks and just hopes he can get her back to Wolf Creek with him in time to help her. Shelley starts to trust him & opens up a little bit of her past to him. Now learning what it is she has endured for years he is more determined than ever to make her as comfortable as possible & to make her stay with him until she can see that she belongs with him. It has to be her choice nothing else will do. The question is can he convince her to stay with him. He has not felt like this towards a woman since his wife past away & that was over 100 years ago.
