This is my sixth visit to Malsum Pass and like all the others I loved it. Mike Myers is a wolf-shifter who owns the garage in Malsum Pass and who has been feeling jealous of everyone who has found their mate. He longs for someone to love and it doesn’t take long before Rin Hayashi a Kitsune (fox) comes into his life.
Rin found her way to Malsum Pass when Constance Tully saved her from the fur traders who were holding her prisoner. When Rin graduated from college and after the loss of both her parents she sent a resume to Brooks Financial expecting to be rejected. Unfortunately she was not rejected but was captured and she knew she would wind up chased, caught, killed and hanging on someone’s wall as a trophy. It was Connie who after escaping came back to free her and bring her to Malsum Pass where she is not living in the bed and breakfast owned by her parents.
Rin was anxious to learn how to defend herself and found out that there was no gym in town, her only option was to ask Mike at the garage if she could use his exercise room something he was more than willing to do. Mike had no idea of what trauma Rin had suffered but he did know that he was taken with her and willing to do whatever he had to to protect her and help her learn to defend herself.
As Rin and Mike grow closer she begins to feel that he is holding something back from her and hopefully it isn’t something illegal. She knows him as a warm, caring and loving man that she has grown to have feelings for and tries to keep her suspicions from getting out of hand. Of course she does find out what he is keeping secret and it is something I will also be keeping secret.
Rin wants nothing more than to live in Malsum Pass and have a life with Mike but a relative has other ideas and it means trouble. Her relative just brings another nightmare into her life, as if she doesn’t have enough since her kidnapping.
If you haven’t read this series from the beginning it is no problem since each book can be a stand alone but after saying that I would recommend reading them all since they are filled with shifters, romance, sex and love. I can’t wait for my next visit to Malsum Pass and hopefully there will be one.
