Synopsis

Some live on memories…

Almost dying during a pack uprising has a way of shaking things up. I’m no longer Mr. Laid Back now that there’s an itch under my skin I can’t scratch.

On a volunteer mission that goes beyond the walls of our compound, we enter the territory of a pack long thought dead, and find ourselves on the business end of their spears.

What I’m not prepared for is what I find within their walls—The one shifter I never thought I’d see alive, the one I’d mourned twice, the one I’d always loved. He is alive, and if I have anything to do with it, he’ll stay that way. But he’s got secrets, and exposing them could lead us to an enemy worse than the bloodthirsty undead shifters wanting to kill us all…

Review


YES! The Silver Tip’s are back!!!!! Chasing Destiny is book two. If you read book one (And you really have to read book one first) you remember Bay… and Nash. Well, this is their story and if you don’t cry and your heart isn’t torn to shreds and sewn back together then you’re not human and must be destroyed.

This book had me gasping, crying, on the edge of my seat, and falling in love hard! Nash is, in my opinion, the strongest pack member (don’t tell Dare) what he’s endured for fifteen years no person could live through. He did though. And what he has to live for is greater than anything.

Megan has written a book of great balance. There’s great times and dark times. Bay is Nash’s light and I adored his strength and belief in Nash. He pulled him up and glued him together and thank God. These two are phenomenal together. Their emotions are explosive and their sex? WOW… just omg HOT! I can’t even write words to describe it. They are human and wolves and their lovemaking is as animalistic as the beasts that live inside them. Sex isn’t a huge thing for me in books. I always say it has to work it has to be right. Don’t write sex for the sake of writing sex. Make it matter and this author does.

As heartbreaking as this book is at many times there’s beauty and happiness. Hope and great promise. It’s an awesome addition and I HOPE there are more books with this pack because it’s such an outstanding series.




Excerpt

Vaughn took a step and froze. Thwunk.
“What the fu—” I yelped as a net buried beneath the leaves rose up all around us. I fell against the netting along with Dal and Vaughn as we soared into the air.
I scrambled to get my feet under me, but the net was swaying from where it was tied to a tree. We were suspended. Vulnerable. All my senses went on alert.
With a roar, Vaughn immediately began to shift, but then a voice tsked us from below. “Ah, ah ah, wouldn’t recommend that, Were.”
That last word was said with contempt, and I peered down to see a werewolf in his human form standing below us, holding a spear made of silver. As I placed a hand on Vaughn’s shoulder to halt him from shifting, a dozen more werewolves crept out of the woods to surround us. Each held a deadly silver spear. Dal remained quiet, her eyes taking in the scene. If there was a way out of here, she’d find it.
“If you don’t get us down in two seconds, I will shred this net and then every one of your necks!” Vaughn yelled, his voice garbled as he fought to control his shift.
“Good God, you animal.” Dal rolled her eyes. “Chill out for a second.”
I gripped Vaughn’s hair and forced him to face me. “She’s right. Calm down.”
He bared his teeth, but remained in his human form. A pissed off hunk of human, but human nonetheless.
I tried to straighten my spine and look as dignified as I could in a net that was suspended from the ground. “Hello, I’m Bay, brother to the alpha of the Silver Tip pack in Eury. We mean no harm.”
“Oh, hear that everyone?” The werewolf sneered. “They mean no harm. Just sneaking around downwind for shits and giggles.”
“Let me at him,” Vaughn growled.
“Control your mutt,” the wolf said.
Vaughn lurched forward, claws out, and I caught him mid-leap and shoved him back against the ropes. “For fuck’s sake, chill out!”
I pointed down at the wolf. “I’m maintaining my calm right now because I’m not an idiot, but we’ll talk later about you calling him a mutt.”
The wolf shrugged. “You assume there’ll be a later.”
Okay, he was trying my patience. “I introduced myself. I’d be pleased as hell if I learned who you were.”
He rested the end of his spear on the ground, point up, and leaned against it casually. There was no fear in his brown eyes, just a calm confidence. His short brown hair bore a startlingly white patch at his right temple. “I’m Pace, alpha of the surviving members of the Whitethroat pack.”
Despite our position, relief swept through me.
“Should have known,” Vaughn muttered. “Little snarky shit just like Reese.”
Pace’s spine stiffened. “What did you say?”
“He called you a snarky shit.” Dal sounded bored.
Pace shook his head, treading closer to the net and peering up at us, eyes alert. “No, you said a name.”
“Reese, a Whitethroat werewolf, is our alpha’s mate,” I explained.
There was a ripple of harsh words throughout the dozen werewolves, and Pace’s face twisted with fury. “What did you do to him?” he demanded, shoving the spear through the rope until it came to a stop inches from my neck.
“I didn’t do anything to him. Maybe if you get that fucking spear out of my face and let me stand on my feet, we can discuss this like civilized shifters.”
“There’s nothing civilized about this world,” he hissed.
I conceded his point. “True. But I think this conversation could be civilized. Reese is healthy and quite happy, and I’d be glad to tell you more when you aren’t threatening me.”
Pace didn’t move, his brown eyes boring into mine as he considered my offer. Finally, with a grunt, he withdrew his spear and slashed at the rope beneath our feet. The binding snapped, and the three of us fell to the ground in a heap.
