I see him and know what this turmoil inside of me means: He's the one. My forever.

Kayla is the nature lover, the all-American beauty who can't understand why she's so drawn to distant, brooding Lucas. Adopted as a young child, she has no way of knowing that she's inherited a terrifying—and thrilling—gene that will change her life forever.

Lucas is dangerous, gorgeous . . . and a werewolf. As leader of the Dark Guardians, shape-shifters who gather deep within the state park, he has sworn to protect his pack. But when Lucas finds his true soul mate, his love could put them all in harm's way.

As Lucas and Kayla struggle with their feelings for each other, a greater danger lurks: Humans have discovered the Dark Guardians and are planning their destruction. Kayla must choose between the life she knows and the love she feels certain is her destiny.

Mini Review
So this is Rachel Hawthorne's first book in her crossover to a supernatural series, and I think she did a good job with the writing and plot but it was still predictable. I only wish there was more character development since each book in the series is based on different characters. This was a quick and easy read for me and by the end of the book, I felt like it ended too soon. This series has the potential to be good so I will have to wait on the next book called Full Moon which is due out in June.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Great rebiew, thanks. I like the sound of the blurb, but maybe I won't get my hopes up for it.
