All that separates them...is a century or two. Werewolf Rafe Garrett is second-in-command of a twenty-third century special ops team, sent back to present day Seattle to stop a group of renegade vampires from destroying the U.S. and causing the deaths of millions of innocent people. He has a personal vendetta, too. The renegades' leader is the same bloodsucker who murdered Rafe’s pregnant wife. Few humans can stake a vampire on their first try, but Stacy Cadell is that kind of gal—a ball of fire in a cool, petite package. Caught in the battle between vampires and werewolves, Stacy hides her true identity from both sides, fearing it could be used against her. But protecting her heart from the werewolf warrior with the killer good looks, is a fight she’s sure to lose. Especially when she learns that, for history to correct itself, she must sacrifice the one person she holds most dear.
 Contains: Hunky, alpha werewolves running around naked, sensual love scenes and mature language.

 If you read sweet romance, try CRAZY FOR COWBOY, or one of the novels from the series ‘A Frost Family Christmas.’

My Rating: 4 Stars
My Review: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
A mix of time travel, werewolves and vampires....it sounds like a recipe for disaster, truly. However, this actually worked out into a relaxing, non-thinking book to read, one that I have needed desperately after the past few months. I don't know of many authors who can take this crazy meld of genres and actually make it work. The author has made it work superbly.
Rafe is a special ops werewolf who is grieving his wife and unborn child, and as any typical alpha male, he isn't out to just get over it, he's out for revenge. He's definitely not looking to fall in love. The author presents him in a way that helps the reader to want the revenge almost as badly as Rafe must, but also hope for a sweeter happy ending for him.
Stacy, a normal human with a very normal life up until she ends up in an alley with a dead body and fighting off some very strange looking creepy men. And of course, it must just be her imagination when she sees a man disappear and a wolf reappear, right? Stacy ends up being a very strong, but very believable heroine. In the end, you can't help but experience her emotions along side her.
Overall, this is a surprisingly good read, and though the author left it off at a happy ending, it could also be a beginning of a series. I truly hope the author continues this.

About the author:

RoxyBoroughsAuthorPhotoMy first love was the theater. And my greatest professional thrill was acting on the same stage as Sarah Bernhardt—though not in the same century. I’ve had small parts in a few movies and TV shows, including the hit programs HONEY I SHRUNK THE KIDS and DEGRASSI JUNIOR HIGH. Writing is rather similar to acting, I believe. Except I get to play ALL the characters…while wearing my PJs and sipping tea. What could be better? I’m married to my first love—a wonderful guy. So I don’t just write romance, I live it! Visit me at http://www.roxyboroughs.com/. Also, check out one of the scenes from that DEGRASSI episode I mentioned. And please forgive my 1980s perm.
