Loving her in secret was becoming his new favorite thing.

The latest installment in the Black Arrowhead series will keep you up all night!

Mercy Breedlove is hardworking, spirited, and eager to find a job. After receiving a trial offer for a position, she's determined to win over her cantankerous boss, who thrives in absolute chaos. When a stranger from her past shows up and threatens her with an ultimatum, Mercy finds herself in serious hot water.

Food isn't the only thing simmering in Bear's kitchen. Over the past two months, the shy but gentle giant has been falling for the most gregarious wolf in the house. Because of pack rules, he keeps that insatiable desire under lock and key. But when someone from Mercy's past threatens to steal her future, Bear vows to protect her at any cost.

A forbidden romance blooms between two packmates, but can it survive a secret so big it could start a war?

Love takes courage.

Opposites attract in this forbidden romance between two shifters who couldn't be more different in age, size, and personality. Can the cinnamon-roll hero love a woman with a past as dark as his own?

Things are progressing at the pack house and everyone is finding their position. Mercy Breedlove wants a job and convinces the cantankerous owner of the breed bar to give her a chance. Mercy has some bright ideas, from serving breed beer to adding food to the menu, but her past is catching up with her. Only problem is, Mercy doesn’t remember much of it.

Everyone likes Mercy and her positive attitude, including Bear, the pack’s cook. He’s been falling for Mercy, but trying to respect pack rules. All that changes when Mercy’s life is in danger.

Dark offered an addictive tale with a little mystery, danger, new acquaintances and a slow, steamy romance sidled with plenty of pack antics that had me giggling late into the night. The pack is a mix of personalities from a protective cat shifter to peacocks, and I love the individuality of them all.

The story regarding Mercy’s upbringing, memory loss and skill set was an engaging one. Will the pack still accept her? Trust her? Will Bear standby her? So many questions kept me listening into the wee hours.

The side thread involving the shifter bar and food had me hankering for some smoked barbecue. We see a little trouble from another local pack and it will be interesting to see what develops especially with Mercy’s suggestion.

Nicole Poole narrates as she does Dark’s other series and I love her tone, pacing and the accents she brings to the characters. She captured Mercy’s spunk and Bear’s gentleness wonderfully.

It was great slipping back into the Black Arrowhead world and I look forward to the next audiobook! Fans of paranormal romance & urban fantasy with rich characters and compelling storylines will want to grab their earbuds and listen.
