I see him and know what this turmoil inside of me means: He’s the one. My forever.

kayla is the nature lover, the all-American beauty who can’t understand why she’s so drawn to distant, brooding Lucas. Adopted as a young child, she has no way of knowing that she’s inherited a terrifying—and thrilling—gene that will change her life forever.

lucas is dangerous, gorgeous . . . and a werewolf. As leader of the Dark Guardians, shape-shifters who gather deep within the state park, he has sworn to protect his pack. But when Lucas finds his true soul mate, his love could put them all in harm’s way.

As Lucas and Kayla struggle with their feelings for each other, a greater danger lurks: Humans have discovered the Dark Guardians and are planning their destruction. Kayla must choose between the life she knows and the love she feels certain is her destiny.

WOW! A young adult novel that I actually couldn’t put down. This book started slow, mainly introducing the different characters that will be coming into the mix during the book. Once you get past the first chapter though, it takes off on a wonderful ride of young love and suspense. You can’t help but fall for the quiet and intimidating Lucas. You just know he is the Alpha in the wolf world and human group. He is protective and a character that commands attention in the book. This was such a delightful young adult book that has plenty of intrigue and action throughout the story. Just when you think it is slowing down, the author throws in another action scene or love scene. A true teen soul mate kind of book. Aahh, young love. Girl meets boy, boy shape shifts, girl shape shifts, they mate for life. A great read for all adults as well. This was suppose to be the first in a three part series, but the author has noted on her web site that there will indeed be a fourth.

I am giving the following only four flames only due to the slow start.

Very Good! Worth Spending Your Money on!
