Ivy believes every life must have balance, and during the past year, she’s found harmony living with the Weston pack. When an evil spirit from her past threatens her wolf, it sets off a chain reaction of events that alters the course of her destiny.
Lorenzo Church is a powerful, wealthy Packmaster who rules his pack through intimidation and order. He has vowed to never love a woman because love can destroy an empire. But chaos is fast approaching in the form of a Shifter named Ivy—a Native American, like him, who has invaded his dreams since the moment they met. She is spirited, wise, and unattainable.
In an unexpected turn of events, Ivy must choose whether or not to let go of the one person she has always loved. Lorenzo discovers the root of her courage but will never win her as his mate unless he learns to listen to his heart.

This is the 4th book in the Seven series. Each book following the Weston Pack in a world where paranormal beings live alongside humans and try to make as few waves as possible. This book follows Ivy and Lorenzo. I admit, Lorenzo was not a big favorite of mine in the previous books. He was kind of an ass most of the time. He has completely redeemed himself in this book! Ivy had him sorted out real quick. after her injury, Lorenzo agreed to keep her for 4 days to help heal her. During that time, Ivy discovered the man hidden beneath the rough exterior.
I'd always known that the way a man treats a woman when no one is watching showed his true colors, but i\I'd never given it a thought beyond that. There is something pure and honest in the way a man treats a woman when he thinks she isn't aware. It shows the kind of man he truly is.
Lorenzo Church was a man with a tough stony exterior. Ivy was able to flip that coin over and see his compassionate side as well. Having said that, this book is not about conquests and sexual encounters. It is about finding out who we really are and what we are meant to do with our skills, our lives, our family. It's about connecting with someone on deeper spiritual level and trusting that person to support you no matter what.
I really like Ivy in this book. Her insight and strength despite her history, made her a very interesting character. Lorenzo is along for the ride, but it is Ivy who makes the book worth reading. Her spiritual nature, loyalty, and vulnerability make her a worthy match to Lorenzo.
You could read this book as a stand alone, but there are continuing story lines from the first 3 books that would be spoilers if you read the books out of order. I recommend starting with Seven Years and going forward. If you haven't read this author before, you will enjoy the pace and humor peppered throughout her writing.
About the Author
This is the segment where you learn a little more about who I am, so here's what I can tell you: I drink copious amounts of vitamin water placed precariously close to my laptop while writing. These are two healthy habits I have no intention of breaking. I'm a transplant living in the south, but I was born in the 70's to a military dad who moved us around the world.
When I'm not writing (which is all the time), I'm hunting down Indie music, watching movies, reading, eating Tex-Mex, discovering new ways to humiliate myself bowling, and burning up my laptop battery on the Internet. I have a relaxed, easy-going personality and don't like drama. I live with a cat who thinks she is a dog, or a goat (she eats plastic, so I'm not sure which).
Throughout my life, I've had insomnia. Counting sheep never worked and eventually I would imagine those sheep were the sole source of food after an apocalyptic battle where only thousands survived. I made up stories in a futile attempt to bore myself to sleep. The problem was, I got so wrapped up in my "head stories" that I would continue them through the following nights, changing it up each time to make it more exciting. Eventually, I started writing my ideas down - creating short stories, and then I discovered my love for poetry.
It's almost embarrassing how many spiral notebooks and stacks of paper I have of poetry and lyrics.
Another passion: digital art. I design all my book covers, marketing, and series art. I'm a very visual person and pursued photography as an avid hobby for many years.
I am not a YA author (I feel like I have to state this only because I've had a few people ask), but I think it's wonderful there are so many books available to teens in Urban Fantasy and Paranormal.
I am finally doing what I have always wanted to do: giving my characters a pulse through writing full time. I focus on adult urban fantasy romance, but I don't like labels and I enjoy blending genres to break out of the confines of predictability.
But it's what I love to do.
