Alpha Night by Nalini Singh
They might have bonded at first meeting but it was almost 48 hours before they got to enjoy skin privileges … almost half the book later!
Alpha Selenka Dever, of the Moscow BlackEdge Wolf pack and Arrow Ethan Night met at a symposium for Empaths to meet and get to know each other. They had just met when her wolf lunged for him inside her. The wolf knew this was her mate but she had never met him before, she did not know him. Meeting someone, bonding with them at first sight only happened in the soap operas, not real life. But it happened with them, her wolf knew he needed her.
Ethan’s original reason to be there were being challenged and changed, as he was being changed, after he had saved Selenka’s life, she in turn saved his. This action ripped away the gray fog he had lived with since he was 8 years old separating him from the world and plunging him into vivid color and raging emotions. No one had ever thought of Ethan first and tried to save him, his life was hers. She owned him heart body and soul and there was nothing he not do for her.
Selenka had left the den that morning not looking for a mate she was there to protect the Empaths (Empaths they were like a pup, they had no sense of self-preservation) they definitely had to be taken care of, thank goodness the arrows had taken that job. But then she met Ethan Night – Arrow, broken, gorgeous and he fit her. Inside her he filled that empty spot. They’re bonding might not have happened normally, traditionally, but it happened and she trusted her wolf inside. Now she had to find a way to save Ethan, because Ethan was now hers and she was not giving him up. She was an alpha wolf and always did things her way, and she quite possessive of her Arrow.
Lots of things happen in this book but the main thing was the Love Story between these two how she fought for him and how he learned to fight for himself. Then he learned the what was fighting to get it out of him wasn’t trying to kill him, it was the most wonderous gift. And she walk that dark path with him, she would not leave him in the dark alone. Never again would he be alone in the dark.
This is a great addition to the Psy/Changeling series. It’s action, adventure romance, the continuation of the breaking of the Psy net it has everything and it is five stars. You have to pick this book up and read it.
