Missy Roper's fantasies have revolved around Graham Winters since the moment they met. But the imposing leader of the Silverback werewolvf clan always seemed oblivious to Missy's existence. At least he was, until Missy collides with him at a party and then abruptly runs away—arousing Graham's interest... and wild desires. Lupine law decrees that every Alpha must have a mate, and all Graham's instincts tell him that the sensual, beguiling Missy is his. Trouble is, Missy is human—every delectable inch of her. Convincing his clan that she's destined mate, and keeping her safe from his enemies, will be the biggest challenge Graham has ever faced. And now that he his determined to have her—as his lover and his mate—Missy's world is changing in ways she never imagined...


When I started reading this book I have to say that I had lots of laughs and it was a pleasurable reading, all a mix of comedy and sex. I wouldn't put it down because I was really enjoying it. But then something changed... Less humor and the sexy Alpha appears different, more "silly", especially in the language and at some point you have to ask yourself: where are his so decesive manners? Seriously, you have to do something about that!

When you're close to the end you seriously expect some drama scene, but there's none. In fact it seems like nothing happened and it's like "Ok, it doesn't really matter. You love me. So, why make a drama about this thing?" And believe me, this THING is something I wouldn't have taken well...

But there is a particular thing that really bothered me... There are time issues. I even re-read those parts again to be sure about that and, unfortunately, I'm right.

This book is the second of eight in a saga called "The Others", every book talks about a different couple so, I will probably give another one a shot, but I have to think about it because I'm afraid the plot would be poor like this one was...
