He’s the last man she should ever want. She’s the last woman he can ever have.A Southern Arcana novel. Coming from a family with psychic gifts, Derek Gabriel was aware of but separate from the dangers of the supernatural world, until a rogue wolf shifter stripped away his humanity. The change he barely survived didn’t drive him insane, but the cultural bias against him as an inferior transformed wolf might. And it doesn’t help that he’s fallen for the daughter of the most powerful wolf in the country. Almost from the moment she was born, Nicole Peyton started planning her escape from the strict confines of elite shapeshifter society, an old-fashioned world where women are valued only for their bloodlines and bank accounts. In New Orleans she has a bar she loves, friends in decidedly low places, and a smoldering sensual tension with an incredibly attractive and deliciously unsuitable man. Their forbidden longing erupts into unbridled need—until Nick’s sister burns into town with a strike team hard on her heels. Saving her means Nick has to play by the Conclave’s rules…and give up the man she is growing to love. Unless Derek does something completely crazy—issue a challenge that could shake the foundations of their world. Warning: This book contains forbidden lust, strip poker, instinct-driven sex in odd places, devious shapeshifters, and love and loss in a world of paranormal politics and supernatural schemes.

Very good. Things were shaken up a little with the Conclave. They desperately needed that. Satisfying end.
I'm really enjoying this series. This one was a bit darker than the first but that was balanced by the appealing band of friends that make up this world and the main couple. It's a dangerous world that these shapeshifters, spellcasters and psychics inhabit and the politics of the shapeshifters tha...
I read Crux, the first book in the Southern Arcana Series earlier last year. I'm not exactly sure what took me so long to get back to this series, but I'm so glad I decided to return. Crossroads was that good.Since it had been awhile, I had forgotten some of the plot in the first book. It didn't mat...
Love the story, Derek Gabriel, the newly turned "mutt" and Nicole, daughter of the big Alpha himself. Nicoles sister shows up with a death threat to her, her mate and their unborn child. How will they ever save them all? And stay together through it all.. This will keep you at the edge of your seat,...
I really should write reviews at once, now I waited three days and that is not good. But I hope I can do the book justice anyway. In this book we get more of the politics and honestly those shifter bosses are such asses. But then men in power (and women) tend to be that. I liked Nicole, the heroine ...
