Dominic and Adele’s story was both sweet and suspenseful. I loved the unique background of how the snow leopards came to be and the search for the Lost.
For me personally, the story was choppy at times. It felt like three different books. Dominic and Adele’s love story, Kelly’s (a young girl they find and help) story of survival, and then Dominic, Adele and Kelly’s story. Too much time was spent on what was happening to Kelly and I think it could have been told in flashbacks instead, once they found her.
Dominic was a bit of a contradiction, both innocent and experienced. Adele, she was an emotional train wreck, but she had the biggest heart. I really enjoyed his pursuit of her and how she came out of her shell. She bloomed, he turned into gentle alpha caveman.
A good story, it kept me entertained for the most part. The dream sequences and life mate elements were really lovely.
About the Author
Khloe Wren started writing her first novel in high school, until it mysteriously disappeared from the family computer (her older brother was the lead suspect but nothing was ever proved). She didn’t put pen to paper again after that for a number of years but she did keep reading. Khloe has always loved all things paranormal: sexy vampires and sultry shifters have always been her favourites. So when she picked up writing again, it seemed only natural she would write paranormal romance.
Khloe grew up in the Adelaide Hills before her parents moved the family to country South Australia when she was a teen. As a young adult Khloe moved to Melbourne. After a few years she missed the fresh air and space of country living so moved back. Khloe currently lives in the Murraylands, South Australia with her incredibly patient husband and two young daughters. When she’s not sitting at her laptop writing, she’s spending time with family or friends, kicking butt at karate or feeding her addictions of reading, eating chocolate and drinking Coke.
