Blurb: Out of the Cage: While out hunting with family in the woods, a wolf shifter finds something he never expected.
Castrose Zukan returns to the hideaway his brother, Clayton, had been using, only to find it destroyed. After checking the escape route they’d created, he discovers Clayton didn’t leave alone. While it takes a few days, Castrose figures out who took him…and where. He sneaks into the United States and heads to a little mountain town called Stone Ridge. What he doesn’t expect is to become the hunted.
When Eion MacDougal watched his two eldest brothers and dozens of others in their wolf shifter pack find their mates, he never lost hope that he would find his own someday. Out hunting with family in wolf form, that day comes when he runs across a guy with a sniper rifle. Revealing himself has unexpected consequences. The big, blond human faints.
With help from his family, Eion takes him home. Help from his pack tells him who the human is…and why he’s there. When Castrose wakes, can he win the man’s trust? Or will his mate flee from Eion when he learns he’s part of the group that kidnapped the human’s only family?
Review: Each book in the Wolves of Stone Ridge collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This series is the start but there were many different series that are connected to this.
Castrose and his brother Clayton are assassins and damn good at their job. They are very close but Clayton is the one that doesn’t border on being truly bad. Now Clayton is missing and Castrose is going to get him back. He just had not expected to the one being hunted since he was the hunter. He also didn’t expect the sexy man to tell him they are mates.
Eion was talked into hunting with his family and in fact lost a bet because of it. However today is a damn good day for it to happen, he has found his mate. A mate with a sniper’s rifle aimed at his alpha’s house, maybe might not be the best day for it either.
It has been a long time since I have gotten to read one of these stories. I use to love getting to read them and loosing myself in their world. The only true downside to them is that they are not long enough to truly get lost in them. They are full of action and danger plus lets not forget to say sexy times. I liked the characters quite a bit. Although I do think that they give in to soon to the love side of things.
It is a very enjoyable read and I look forward to seeing what is next in this amazing series.
