I admit looking at this book and wanting to give it a pass, I’m glad I didn’t. This is one story that I will reread again and again, a great example why we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover; the words, the plot and the characters were something I’m glad that I got to read and experience, nothing but pure joy.
The book was long, yet not once did I feel it was overdrawn. It allowed for such great character development and the connection between the two main characters to deepen over time. Wynter and Kham go through a tumultuous relationship, they are two of the most awesome couples I’ve read about, due mainly to the heroine. Her strength, endurance and pure heart resonated with me. They both fought their own battles and faced many obstacles not only against plotting villains, but also for him to regain his trust in others and her to make him see her for what she is , a woman of great character.
“Wynter of the Craig would never take another woman to wife.
Because when snow wolves mated, they mated for life.
“Whatever you do, Khamsin, don’t betray me,” he whispered. “Don’t ever betray me.”
“Afterward, he’d watched her with the strangest expression on his face. As if he was beholding something . . . precious.
Kham ran her hands over her face, letting her fingers linger on her passion-swollen lips. She’d never been precious to anyone”
The villains in this book are some of the most despicable, not only because of the evil they unleash, but due to the fact that one of them happens to be the father of the heroine; Someone who should love her and protect her yet instead subjects her to mental and physical abuse.
The author manages to grab my attention even with some slow-paced parts, her gentle style of writing suits our protagonists despite their stormy nature. I recommend this book, for anyone who is looking for a strong and lovable heroine, an equally endearing hero and a great storytelling.
“She was his wife, his queen, his mate. His heart.
