Jace Shaw is one of the few survivors of an extraordinary, rare wolf pack. He spends his days on the run and his nights in another world with a man he’s only dreamed about. To sleep is to feel his dream man’s hands on his body and hear his wicked whispered words. But when the sun rises reality crashes in: the evil that destroyed his birth pack hunts his kind down in search of a way to control their power.
Merek Wahya is an alpha dealing with all the issues of being newly appointed, but they all fall away when he closes his eyes at night. Then, a man with moonlit hair and mercury eyes crawls into bed with him. When he wakes it’s to a painful arousal no one can satisfy. When Merek’s wolf catches Jace’s scent he knows he’s found his mate, and he soon learns their nocturnal meetings were only foreplay. The joy of this discovery is shadowed by the trouble that follows Jace. Merek’s mate is embroiled in a battle between two ancient packs, a war Merek must now fight. If he fails he could lose Jace forever.
Scent of a Wolf is my first book by Draven St James. I picked it up because the summary for Book 2, Wolf’s Sacrifice, intrigued me. While both of these could standalone, the world and characters are introduced in this book and carry into book 2. I don’t recommend reading them as such.
In Scent we meet Merek and Jace. They are fated mates. Now wait a minute. I know some of you love the fated mate trope, and some of you hate it. I am one who reserves judgement until I finish a story. In this case, I enjoyed it. I like that the Pack of Light has different rules than the rest of the wolves. I like the dreams.. HOT is all I can say about those.
I don’t want to give away too much of the plot, that is what reading the book is for, after all. I will say that Jace and Merek are an interesting pair. I will also say that by the end, I believed them as a couple for more reasons than being fated mates.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
I have a number of paperbacks, most of which are signed, to giveaway. Over the between now (11 Mar 2017) and 31 Mar 2017, every comment on the blog (this post and all other new posts), will be entered to win 1 of these paperbacks. There are also some misc swag items, so there will be a few packs of these to give away as well.
