The shadows of her past could destroy their future.
Eden Green can’t remember a time she didn’t believe in monsters—her cousin was born one. Her family’s dark past casts a long shadow, making it hard to make friends and harder to commit to a lover. She lives a quiet life in small-town Clover, Tennessee, but she’s always waiting for the other shoe to drop.
Tired of the city packs’ corruption, yet too alpha to be a subordinate in a sanctuary town, Jay Ancheta satisfies his need to protect by serving as Clover’s Chief of Police. As much as he’s drawn to Eden, he can’t offer forever to a woman who doesn’t know what he is—or trust himself to let her go after one taste.
When Eden’s cousin and his battered pack stagger into town, their tormentors hard on their heels, Eden is bitten in the chaos. Now Jay not only has a traumatized pack to deal with, but a newly turned wolf with enough hungry alpha power to consume them both.
With their combined strength, they can create a new sanctuary—if their passion can survive the ghosts of the Green family’s legacy.
Warning: Contains a newly turned werewolf heroine who enjoys a little rough dominance in bed and a badass alpha wolf hero who’ll fight bad guys, ghosts and even the past to protect what’s his. Be prepared for violence, death and heartbreak on the way to a happily ever after.
Moira Rogers has written several paranormal romance series. I’ve read quite a few of them and love her work. When I read the blurb for Haunted Sanctuary, I got very excited and grabbed it. I have two books that I’m supposed to be reading for a review, but they were both going too slow for me, so I switched to this book and didn’t have that problem at all. Moira Rogers knows how to develop characters and does it very well. She does the same with worlds.
Jay, a werewolf shifter, is the Chief of Police in the small town of Clover Tennessee. He’s had the hots for Eden since he met her but wouldn’t start their relationship on a lie. She didn’t know he was a werewolf and he couldn’t tell her because she was human. Eden’s cousin is a werewolf and has suffered throughout his whole life. The man believed to be his father beat him constantly. Then he was kidnapped and tortured while his pack was being tormented. When he brought them to his family farm for safety, trouble followed them.
The way Eden and Jay deal with all the problems thrown at them was amazing. I don’t know how I would’ve handled it. I loved the fast pace of this book and how well you get to know all of the characters. I had a couple of issues with it though. First, Jay and Eden, their relationship was just too easy. Everything just fell into place for them. I felt like they should’ve had to work at it more. The only other thing was there were still a lot of unanswered questions, but I have a feeling these will be dealt with in upcoming books of the series. I will definitely be grabbing Haunted Wolf, Lorelei and Colin’s story, which releases in July.
