Chayton Wiston is a veterinarian. He is also a werewolf. Much to his Native American parents chagrin, he has always dreamed of a fair-haired, Caucasian mate. however, he never imagined his mate would be male. As a heterosexual man, he’s not quite sure what to do with a male mate, but more than willing to find out.

Keaton Reynolds wakes up, in wolf form, and finds himself with a mate. He’s instantly attracted, but not so thrilled to find out the man is straight. Having been in a relationship once before where his partner professed to be “Not gay” left a bad taste in his mouth. Keaton wants to make a break for it and pretend he never set eyes on Chay—but Chay is not ready to let him go.

Together the two work solidify their shaky relationship and battle the prejudices against homosexual. Chay must deal with not only his mother’s prejudices against gay men but also her hatred of white people. When a power struggle in Keaton’s pack threatens Keaton’s life, the two men learn to depend on one another and their relationship to get them through it.

Warning, this title contains the following: explicit sex, graphic language, violence and hot man-love.

This is another of those books that had me disappointed, which is crap because all in all it was a fucking beautiful book.
But it wasn’t an erotic and because of that...

It was a great book, much more about Keaton and who wants him dead then about the romance, though the love between them was exceptionally sweet, but no real hassles—like yeah, it’s a shock when someone you didn’t think was gay comes out, but that’s pretty much all.
Chay had to make Keaton believe in something he couldn’t help but want and everyone else had to deal with it of Chay didn’t want them around.

It was one of those stories that so sweet and genital and loving and come with a storyline for the next book that makes you crave it.
And that’s really all there is to it.

Still, it wasn’t a erotic novel and they said that it was, and because of that I’m a little pissed, though it’s a great story, it’s clearly a romance, hell, the sex is softer even in its hotness, than some of flat out romances I’ve read, honestly it’s light and fun and year it’s all about men together but it’s not as graphic as it should be when calling something erotic.

With Love, Hearts for the Ashes, [tb], With Cautions, a lot to be thankful for, a sterling New Year, With Abandon, Christmas Dinner at Reynolds Hall, Attack of the Killer Dust Bunnies, Christmas Cookies and Graland, Without Fear
