This is Book One of the Sanctuary Series, which, if anything like this first book, promises to be a wonderful series.
Hannah has had a confusing life, supposedly abandoned as a child but adopted and raised by people who loved her until they died. Now she is alone, lonely except for the “family” she has found in the people who work with her at the sanctuary. But things don’t feel right. She begins dreaming of a man who comes to her at night and makes wild, untamed love to her. Awake, she hears her dream lover’s voice and worries about her sanity, especially when she starts to have strong, strange feelings for a wounded wildcat.
Ja has tried to find the royal heir to his clan that he’d been charged with guarding years ago and then been forced to abandon her to keep her safe. The youth he remembered is now a beautiful woman that he is desperate to claim for his own. She remembers nothing of her first family, doesn’t recognize him, doesn’t know who and what she really is, and struggles with even believing shifters really exist. Can he convince her to trust him? Can he keep her safe from those who want her dead? Can he find a way to make her love him even if he isn’t worthy of her?
Becca Dale has created some strong characters with serious internal and external conflicts to overcome. The setting with the mix of the animal sanctuary and the shape-shifting community seem believable. And if you’re interested in a nice hot story…well, here it is.
