Gwen and Brock have taken a trip to Puffin Cove to visit the rescue center and to once again visit Brock’s magical cabin. If you read the last book in the series then you already know about the cabin and how it manages to fulfil the needs of the people staying there. And if you are like me, you are jealous because I would love a cabin, room, garage, whatever that would care for my needs lol.


Gwen left the Salem Wildlife Sanctuary in the capable hands of her assistant manager, Trinity Shilo and all is well until a phone call from Gwen takes Trinity out of the office and into the field. The Puffin Cove rescue center has burned down and the animals are in need of care and a temporary home till the rescue center can be rebuilt. Trinity travels with Paul Thorpe, a wounded special forces veteran who she has feelings for in spite of seeing him at his worst when his PTSD flared up. 


All the animals are saved except for an African grey parrot that Trinity found and adopted as her own, if it survives its injuries. A benefit is in the works to raise money for the rebuilding of the rescue center during which time we are reunited with all the characters we previously met, Pepper, Lathan and the little dog Gwen managed to give a new life to, Misfit.


The mystery of what started the fire will be solved but the most important thing was the animals and Trinity and Paul’s budding relationship. Witches, gypsy and fae magic and a werewolf what more could you want from a paranormal romance oh I forgot animals in need of a good home and love, love that is returned unconditionally.
