Book Description: Adria, wolf changeling and resilient soldier, has made a break with the past—one as unpredictable in love as it was in war. Now comes a new territory, and a devastating new complication: Riaz, a SnowDancer lieutenant already sworn to a desperate woman who belongs to another.
For Riaz, the primal attraction he feels for Adria is a staggering betrayal. For Adria, his dangerous lone-wolf appeal is beyond sexual. It consumes her. It terrifies her. It threatens to undermine everything she has built of her new life. But fighting their wild compulsion toward one another proves a losing battle.
Their coming together is an inferno…and a melding of two wounded souls who promise each other no commitment, no ties, no bonds. Only pleasure. Too late, they realize that they have more to lose than they ever imagined. Drawn into a cataclysmic Psy war that may alter the fate of the world itself, they must make a decision that might just break them both.

Captivation:  This book isn’t bad so much as just unnecessarily long. It would have been better cut down into a couple of short stories. The romance itself is neat and sweet, but it just felt like a lot of filler went on to it.

Sizzle: The physically intimate portions of this book were pretty great.. one truly body-tingling scene.

Romance: The romantic story in this book is a super sweet one. It would have been a really awesome short story, the lengthy portions in this book could easily have been cut about in half with a separate short story on the different plots related.

Enjoyment: I’d have enjoyed this book if it had been edited down to a couple of shorter-stories rather than one standard-sized book. The story didn’t feel like it really warranted a full-length book. The story of the relationship building between Adria and Riaz is truly a neat, sweet story.

Literacy:  The editing for this book is okay, I caught a few more errors than normal, but not generally enough to be a full distraction.

Overall, I like this book, and will read it again, however, more as just a point of keeping track of the overall series plot; I will likely skip several sections and pages.
