One girl. Two wolves. Promised to one. Destined for the other. 

To escape the cruel, overbearing, Kade, the Yukon Pack alpha she’s been promised to, Bailey Whitehill flees her home in search of a new life, one of freedom where she can make her own choices. However, Kade will stop at nothing to make her his and begins the hunt. 

As Bailey starts her new life, everything she’s known to be true, is not. Time is of the essence and choices have to be made or consequences suffered. Not only does Bailey fear Kade, but another danger lurks deep in the recesses of the forest. Unbeknownst to her, that danger is what she’s been searching for all along. At the turn of the moon, her fate hangs in the balance . . . and it’s up to her to make the right choice.

I couldn't put this book down until I finished reading it. Truly addictive. For fans of "The Originals", it's as if this book focused on the werewolves packs that we all know and brought all the sexy and raw emotions these creatures can have.

This book was truly a surprise. The synopsis is catching and promises what delivers. There's action, a mystery, secrets, an evil brother, witches and a destined love. Did I mention the part where all the characters are werewolves? I think this topic has been used by a lot of authors, some of them making it almost unbearable to yet have to read "another typical" werewolf story. But L.P. Dover, not only wrote a great story, she made me crave for more and brought me back to being number one fan of the werewolves' stories.

The characters are well developed and their relationship start a bit destined, meaning we are soulmates therefore we are meant to be together forever and ever. But it takes a turn when we get to know that the characters knew each other and that there's a huge story behind their relationship. I was glad to find a badass Bailey who'll mistrust everyone, even the one who claimed to be his true mate. I was captivated by their irresistible attraction and magical connection and ended up head over heels with Ryker the very first moment he showed himself as a good guy, without leaving the alpha male behind.

The plot is flawless and the reader does not have second thoughts when the author introduces some drama, mystery or romantic moments. Even when secrets are unraveled, it feels like the story has been well built and it's the right moment to know everything. 

I was invested in this book from the very first page until the very end and was left asking when the next Royal Shifters book is going to come out. I seriously thought about The Originals and that it was all as badass and cool as the TV Show, minus the vampires and with a more sexy touch to the story. I highly recommend it to all NA readers searching for a good Paranormal Romance story.

USA TODAY Bestselling author, L.P. Dover, is the author of the Forever Fae series, as well as the Second Chances standalone series, and her NA romantic suspense standalone called Love, Lies, and Deception. She lives in the beautiful state of North Carolina with her husband, her two wild girls, and her rambunctious kitten Katrina.

Before she began her career in the literary world, L.P. Dover spent her years going to college and then graduated to cleaning teeth, which she loved doing. At least until the characters in her head called her away. She has never been the same since.
