It’s been six months since Jacque Lupei was imprisoned in the dark forest with her female pack mates, wondering if they would ever see their mates again. Six months since she and Fane found out that Jen and Decebel would not be the only couple adding a new pup to the pack. Six months of peace and quiet…other than Jen running her mouth incessantly about Sally getting to go on an adventure with Peri while she has to miss all the fun. When she isn’t complaining about that, she spends her time commenting on how Jacque’s butt is getting wider by the minute. Jacque doesn’t know it, but the reprieve was about to be over. She and Fane thought his demons had been dealt with, but the nightmares are back and the In-Between is once again ripping a hole inside of her mate.
Jacque can’t stand to see him hurting. She can’t stand knowing that in some way she was responsible for his struggle because she, after all, was the subject of his pain from the In-Between. She’ll do anything to stop his turmoil. So she makes a desperate decision to do what she thinks her mate needs, or doesn’t need. Others will call it insane. Jen will add her own creative descriptions, including expletives thrown in for added effect. Whatever you call it, Jacque calls it an answer to the darkness that is slowly consuming her mate.
She knows that if Fane has any idea of what she has planned, he would chain her to his side. So, naturally she does what any female Canis lupus would do in her shoes–she shuts down the bond and prays that no one gets in her way. She knows he might never forgive her, but then, if her plan works, he won’t even remember her name
This is the first novella in the Grey Wolves series….also book 8.5 in the series. I have absolutely LOVED this series from the very first book. I absolutely fell in love with all the characters…Quinn did an amazing job building them up and making you love them!!
Each book is focused on a different couple, except the first 2 are both about Fane and Jacque…this novella is about them and when I found out I was so excited because they’re my favorite couple!! We haven’t had them as the main couple in quite a while and I’ve missed them!! I love Jen and Dec, along with Sally and Costin though!!
There was something in the past that happened and Fane is having a hard time getting past it, which is straining their relationship. She of course tries to fix things alone…not a smart thing for her to do…especially since the bonded mates can talk telepathically and sense each others feeling. Talk about hard to keep a secret, even though it’s possible to close the bond down to keep things secret…highly unrecommended !! Makes the men very enraged lol
“Something is wrong with Jacquelyn,” he growled, unable to hide his frustration.
“Is she hurt? Is the baby okay?” The Alpha took a step toward him, his natural instinct to protect kicking in full force.
“She’s blocking me. I can’t feel her; I only know she is alive.”
This book had my emotions all over the place. Would Jacque go through with her plan? Would Fane be able to stop her in time? If he does will be be able to forgive her for what she tried to do? Will they be okay?!
He was barely holding it together. The sound of her voice in his mind was his undoing.
“I only wanted to take away your pain. Is that so wrong?”
If you haven’t read this series I highly recommend it!!! This series is on my top 5 list!! The males in this series are the absolute best…talk about committed and protective and possessive!!! Sometimes it drives the females crazy, but it’s so amazing how much love they have for their mates. Real men can definitely take some pointers!! Quinn has totally outdone herself!! If this series ever ends I’ll be so sad!!! I’d definitely see myself doing annual re-reads!!!
