Tori is weak, small, and vulnerable, the runt of the litter, so the pack does everything in its power to protect her. Jack has always cared about her, but when he screws up and some innocent fun almost kills Tori, she is sent to live with her uncle to keep her safe.

Now three years later, Tori is back, and the moment Jack sees her, he knows she's his mate. What he's not prepared for is the revelation that she might not make it through her transition into a wolf in two years' time.

Tori knows the danger she's in. With the help of her uncle she's trying to get stronger, to prepare for the time when she must become a wolf. She wants all the help she can get, and is happy to get help from Jack, the guy who has always been nice to her.

Time is running out, and Jack doesn't see an answer. If his mate dies, he doesn't want to live without her. There is only a slim chance of her surviving, but it means he has to break one of the pack's most sacred laws. He's willing to risk anything for his mate, but what will happen when the pack discovers what he has done? Will Tori forgive him? Will she accept him as her mate? Or will it all be for nothing?

Tori is the runt of the pack and there is doubt that she will make it through her transition to wolf, and Jack will risk everything to see that she does in this riveting paranormal romance.

Two years is all Jack will have with Tori if doesn't survive and the reader can't help but get caught up in the gut wrenching reality as Jack spends those two years making Tori stronger.
These strong captivating characters demand that you don't give up on them while the fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers on the edge of anticipation with suspense and romance. Although Tori is under-aged and forbidden, Jack's loyalty and devotion to his mate adds lots of sweet zing to the story.

Tension and expectation builds throughout the story as time runs out. Jack pulls out all the stops and risks everything to help her through while his wolf is adding his own pressure to the mix. This adds to the dynamic intensity that the reader feels flowing from every page. The well written scenes with vivid details capture the imagination and the suspense draws readers in, compelling them to read every last word.

This romance is gripping and sweet and although the story jumps through time quite a bit, it fits the story and is easy to follow. This is the first story that I have read by this author and once I finished it, I was delighted to discover that she has plenty more for me to read, so I can't wait to get started.
