“Win the love of the wolf with the hardest heart.”
Faced with eternal banishment to hell, Anubis, god of the underworld, has found a loophole in one of the oldest laws which will allow him to unleash his evil on an unsuspecting human world. Orion’s only hope to stop him is to accept his challenge: send a champion to win the love of the wolf with the hardest heart. It will take someone with a pure heart to soften a closed one, so faced with the threat of losing not only the werewolves, but the destruction of the human race, the gods can only do one thing — send Adam, one of their own.
Adam quickly realizes that the werewolf whose love he must win is Jed. Wounded after the loss of his wife and son, Jed promised he would never love again or be responsible for someone else’s happiness. Adam has been given a near impossible task.
Anubis is eager to see Adam fail, and unbeknown to everyone takes matters into his own hands to make sure of it. Everything happening now is part of his master plan, and finally it has come full circle.
Even if Adam succeeds and wins Jed’s heart, will that love survive when Jed discovers the whole thing was nothing more than a bet? Or when Adam does the one thing he mustn’t and falls in love himself, will he not only break Jed’s heart but completely destroy his own?
Oh my goodness this book was so good! I loved getting to see Jed get a happy ending. He deserved to be happy so much. Plus we get all the answers about the whys and whatfors through the series. It was a fabulous story to finish off the series. The story pulled me in right from the first page and I couldn’t stop reading until the middle of the night and had finished the book.
Jed broke my heart a little bit. He didn’t think he was worthy of love and affection. Once he let himself feel for Adam you could feel his relief at having someone to have feelings for. His love for Adam came shining through in the story even if he was reluctant to admit it until later. But Jed was so happy and in love by the end of the book. It was wonderful to see.
Adam hurt my heart some. He had far more of a sad history than appears at first. He was truly pure of heart and agonized over his goal. Adam was quick to show his feelings for Jed. He also became a part of the pack easily. he took care of the pack members any way he could and he thrived while there. I loved seeing him happy and deeply in love at the end of the story.
Jed and Adam were quick to get together and fall in love. Jed was in denial for a while but he admitted it quickly when things were rough. The misunderstanding and pain from that went by fast. But I loved how it was redeemed and the scene where Jed and Adam are showing their feelings in front of the council. They so clearly love each other and are going to be together forever in love with their pack and family. I would love to see more stories in this world and the characters in it. There isn’t anything left dealing with the Gods and Goddesses or The Winter Circle. But I love the world built and characters created. I don’t want to let them go.
