Description from the publisher:
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.

This is the first book in the Royal Shifters series and they will need to be read in the order of release.

Speaking of releases, the second one is due out at the end of the month.  I can definitely say, “I want!” to that one.  This is the first book I have read from L.P. Dover.  I do not want it to be my last.

Many, many shifter books rely on the fated mates trope to make it easier on the writer – there is no need to build a relationship if they fall into instant-lust.  While fated, Bailey refuses to fall for it.  She wants destiny to step aside and allow her to make her own decision regarding who she will accept as her mate.  There is no doubt she is drawn to Ryker, but she wants the whole package.  They share a history she doesn’t remember, but the spell that has made her forget also allows her to get to know him slowly, like humans do.

In a genre that is often times predictable, this story has a unique turn on the family of werewolves.  There is suspense, romance, and friendship.  The conversations are organic and realistic.  I giggled, cried, and sighed.  I understand that this is L.P. Dover’s first try at a paranormal romance.  I want to tell her, “Beautifully done!”
