Mikhail Matheson had arrived in Salvation to check on his
sister. She was happily mated and living the good life with
the Salvation Pack. So why is he staying? It could be the
fact that his wolf howls every time she sees Elise LaForge.
The widowed mother of Jacque, the alpha of Salvation pack
and his brother, Louis. He just isn't sure how they would
feel about him claiming her or even after the abusive
relationship she had endured would she want him.
Elise LaForge is now free for the first time in her life,
but she feels something is missing and the way her wolf
likes to preen whenever Mikhail is around she wonders if he
might be the missing piece. Can she get over the fears of
her past to find a future?
A WOLF OF HER OWN is a tale of reward ... for both gentle,
but fierce, Mikhail and sweet and stronger than she thinks,
Elise. After seeing hints of their "watching" each other I
was very much hoping they would get their own book, not just
continued mentions in others storylines.
Elise had been abused by her first mate, a horrible man who
thought only of his wants and needs and woe-be anyone who
stood against him ... including his own sons. The boys,
along with Gator and Cole had left that pack to form their
own more accepting one before the old man ended up killing
them. The Alpha would not/could not let go and the boys'
only choice was to kill him to protect themselves and their
newly found mates. Thus freeing them and the others who had
stood by and watched the former alphas abusive behavior.
(To be fair, from past books you saw hints of good in this
pack despite the evil alpha.) If anyone deserved happiness
though it is this couple. She who endured so much anger and
hatred, but still managed to raise her sons with love;
helpin helping them become the men they are. He, for
practically raising his sister by himself, sacrificing for
her happiness when he didn't have to do it. Yes they earned
You have to read A WOLF OF HER OWN just so you can enjoy the
brothers' reaction to the truth of their mothers mating with
Mikhail. I laughed out loud! Another aspect of it is in
human years both Elise and Mikhail would be in their 60s
(which proves you can still fall in love even if you are
ancient), but in wolf age still in their 30s so another
surprise just might show up to give another good laugh at
the brothers' expense.
If you love books about family, friends, a love that grows
and strengths the people involved, while still being sweet
and steamy then get A WOLF OF HER OWN by N.J. Walters. You
won't want to put it down and it will definitely be a keeper.
Mikhail Matheson may be an outsider in Salvation, but he
stays with the pack to be close to his sister. It has
nothing to with the fact that Elise—the most fascinating
woman he’s ever laid eyes on—is part of the pack. Mikhail
has wanted Elise for years, but being with her could cost
him his life. Soon he’ll have to decide if he’s going to
leave the pack or risk it all to pursue a place at her side.
After escaping her abusive mate, Elise LaForge has made a
home in Salvation with her sons. She never expected to have
her emotions stirred up by the always serious and seriously
handsome Mikhail. But can she finally put her past behind
her and dare to move on?
When danger creeps into the pack, both she and Mikhail have
to be willing to sacrifice everything to have a chance at love.
