It’s not easy fighting destiny.
Since discovering his heritage, Alaskan bush pilot Tad Maxwell has been torn between two worlds—human and wolf. He’s close to giving up on his dreams when Missy Leason suddenly re-enters his life. Ten years ago, their teenage attraction never went beyond hand-holding. Now their chemistry is off the charts, pushing him closer to a step he’s not sure it’s safe to take, especially with a human.
Yet Missy is more like Tad than he realizes. She’s a wolf too, and a wolf pack is a dangerous place to have secrets. Missy’s unscrupulous Alpha has sniffed out her carefully hidden Omega powers, and she’s on the run—straight into Tad’s arms. While every touch between them is flaming hot, it’s only a matter of time before she’ll be tracked down.
If his un-tapped power isn’t strong enough to save her, they could both end up dead.
Warning: Contains nasty Alphas, secret Omegas, and werewolves acting raunchy on the dance floor. Sarcasm, wilderness cabins, and hot nookie back by popular demand.
The NORTHERN LIGHTS EDITION is a revised and extended version of the 2009 original.
We met Tad in the first book, Wolf Signs, when his sister found out she was a werewolf. Tad has known for some time that he too is a latent wolf but so far, he hasn't been triggered. As fascinated as Tad is by his heritage, he clings to his humanity and resists becoming what he considers more beast than man. Missy had an unhappy arranged marriage and has never found her mate. She remembers Tad with fondness from her schooldays; and when pushed into a really nasty situation by her corrupt brother-in-law, Missy hatches a cunning plan. She's going to escape from her pack and catch up with Tad because if she's right, he can help her lose her much prized Omega powers!
I really liked Tad and he's such an honourable character and not at all bloodthirsty like so many other wolves in these packs. Tad has always known Missy was special but seeing them come together was both funny and sweet. Missy is bright and I liked that she holds a responsible job as I wanted to see a strong heroine who could think for herself. Missy might think she has her answer to her dilemma with Tad but clearly Ms Arend had other ideas! I'd definitely say things don't quite go according to plan although triggering Tad's wolf side has far reaching repercussions that added greatly to the story.
Bottom line is Wolf Flight whilst quite short, added a lot to this world Ms Arend has created as the timeline caught up quite nicely with previous events. Plus, it starts with a scene showcasing just how odious the bad guy really is, so right from the start I was one hundred percent routing for Missy.
Fun, sexy, sweet and with a most unusual fight scene, definitely worth a read if looking for something a bit different.
