The Lost Wolf's Destiny (Harlequin Nocturne #167) by Karen Whiddon

A desperate mother. A scarred man. A powerful bond...

The moment he saw Blythe Daphne on the television news, Lucas Kenyon knew three things: she was a shapeshifter, like him. She was the most desirable creature he had ever seen. And she was in terrible danger.

Now, the wolf in Lucas is driving him to save Blythe and her young daughter from a man he knows is evil personified. A man who believes all shapeshifters are demons straight from hell. But Lucas knows he must never reveal the secret that threatens to tear him apart--not even to the one woman who could heal him.

This was the first book by Ms. Whiddon that I've read and I was looking forward to discovering a new author, but I'm not sure this is the author for me. I was first drawn in by the beautiful cover then the blurb sounded promising. I just found myself rolling my eyes enough to make me dizzy. I just couldn't stand some of the decisions made by both MCs and though the idea of the book sounded great it just didn't deliver. There was a lot of repeating, too. I guess maybe if I had read some of the prior books of this series I would've had a better understanding of what being Pack meant or was suppose to mean, but I found them almost as bad as the church. I mean, they steal the sick child away from her mother after the stuff she went thru with the church? But it was for her own good. Really?! There were other things I disliked but I don't want to write anymore spoilers. This is just a series I'll pass on in the future, but I encourage you to make your own decision.

Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.
