Story Blurb:

Morgan Carter witnessed her sister’s murder, has been turned into a werewolf and is now raising her young niece. Then her fiance, Greyson Crawford, proves he wants to be with her for the wrong reasons, and she knows her life couldn’t be any stranger. Devastated, she retreats to her cozy house in the city with her sister’s little girl, Lana. There, they’ll have normalcy, and maybe eventually, even happiness.

But Morgan’s the only living silver wolf. Her uniqueness—the ability to produce werewolf offspring—means, without Grey’s protection, she’s unknowingly put herself and Lana in deadly danger. Other werewolves want to claim her for their pack, and she’s the easiest, most tempting prey ever.

When they strike, Grey has to find her and rescue her before it’s too late. Not so simple a task; he has only the uncontrollable beast inside him, Wolf, and an unlikely pack of allies he’s forced to rely on. Can he get to her in time? And if he does, can he convince her he’s there for the right reasons, saving them both?

And then he frowned , because there was no pulsing warmth oozing now. No sticky residue on his skin. His fingers probed, and then he bowed his head, staring at his bared chest. His clean bared chest.

No blood . No wound. He blinked, pressing both hands to his chest now, moving them, pressing again, searching for the bullet hole. It had seemed gaping before. Maybe it was just smaller than it seemed.

“There’s nothing there, Duncan ,” Arianna said. “You died. Right there on the floor. We cleaned you up, and put you on the couch. In less than an hour the wound healed and you revivified . You’re alive now, and there’s no hole in your chest because you’re immortal.”

He gaped at her, then stared up at Raven. “I know it’s shocking the first time,” she whispered. “I know how difficult this is for you to believe. But, Duncan, we didn’t mean to. Arianna was aiming at me–”

“Oh, but this is so much better. Really drives the point home.”

Serials are a fun way to get a relatively short reading fix – always with a cliffhanger – and more to the story yet to come,  usually installments a few months apart.  Long enough to wait impatiently, short enough to keep the ongoing story interesting… and the reader wanting to know more about that world.

I have not read the previous novel Vanished.   In Bridged, the relationship between Mason and Ava has already been established.  I was a bit concerned as I started this novel, but it soon became apparent that I could fall into this story without having to read the previous one.

I know, I’m certifiable – but really so tired of not reading series in order… so I gave in.  But I’m a happy reader for indulging in the book binge.  😉

Now, I must not one click, I must not one click, I must not one click…. yeah, right.
