Veterinarian Seth Davies comes to Senaka, Wyoming, looking for peace and anonymity, trying to escape his past. He’s always been a target for trouble and pain, and Seth has had more than his share of both. Kasey Whitedove takes one look at Seth and assumes the worst. No white man could love animals the way the mostly Cheyenne population expects, and Kasey makes Seth’s first days in Senaka more than unpleasant.
Then an accident puts Kasey in the uncomfortable position of eating crow—and helplessly desiring Seth—despite the danger of Kasey’s life as a werewolf and Seth’s stressful secrets. Chasing Seth down and keeping him safe from his past has just become Kasey’s most important job.
Chasing Seth has a lot of elements that are common to PNR stories in the genre but don’t let that deter you.
Seth Davies is finally getting his life back, it’s taken him almost two years to feel comfortable living in the human world again, after being kidnapped and severely abused by a group of rogue wolves. He has invested his life savings, well his whole life really, in a Veterinarian Practice in Senaka, Wyoming and he is looking forward to some peace and quiet. Maybe for the first time ever he can put some roots down in life and have a bit of ‘normal’. Normal is a relative term though as Seth is a werewolf and has healing powers with pretty awful side effects.
Kasey Whitedove is the alpha in waiting of a Cheyenne wolf pack and is incensed when he discovers a white man is the new vet in town. He’s not racist per se but he has been brought up thinking that white men cause more damage than good to animals. He’s also been brought up to believe that only the Cheyenne can call upon their wolf spirits and that anyone else with the ability is what they refer to as a created. The created are bad, rogue wolves who need to be killed as they have no control over themselves. You can see where this is going right?
Kasey and Seth are mates and neither one of them is happy about it. For Seth it is terrifying as the last person to claim he was his mate was the man who tortured and abused him. An accident throws them together and there is more than one shock in store for Kasey when he finally sees his mate in human form.
There is insta- lust here but certainly not insta- love. For all that Seth tries to run Kasey keeps chasing him. This is a story of healing, of having your eyes opened to the larger world and of learning to trust. Not all of Seth’s problems have disappeared and Kasey almost loses him before he fully gets him, they will have to fight against the past before they can have their future.
The story also gives us a brief glimpse at Nick and Thayne who are the stars of book 2 in the series. Their mating is also one that is not going to be easy and they get off to the worst start ever with Thayne trying to kill Nick.
Jeff Gelder gave a solid performance in this one. He was easy to listen to and clear in his narration and I thought his voice for Seth was particularly good.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
