Review: Each book in the Eternal Flames Maddox collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.
Destrain’s mate Clove died many years ago and it always broke Destrain’s heart. Fate had another idea though, they brought Clove back from death. The problem was Clove hadn’t wanted to come back. Things were not going to well, and then in comes a sexy little shifter.
Tobias was a cute ferret shifter who knew that Destrain and Clove were his mate. However Destrain and Clove had no clue, for they don’t know until a kiss. So you can imagine what is going to happen.
I came across these two authors since the first book in the original series came out and let me tell you that it was a series that I will always read more than once. Action packed, excitement filled, danger and some hot sexy time is just a bit of what you are going to get in this book.
I loved this book and can’t wait to get my hands on the next one.
