BLURB: “Win the love of the wolf with the hardest heart.”

Faced with eternal banishment to hell, Anubis, god of the underworld, has found a loophole in one of the oldest laws which will allow him to unleash his evil on an unsuspecting human world. Orion’s only hope to stop him is to accept his challenge: send a champion to win the love of the wolf with the hardest heart. It will take someone with a pure heart to soften a closed one, so faced with the threat of losing not only the werewolves, but the destruction of the human race, the gods can only do one thing — send Adam, one of their own.

Adam quickly realizes that the werewolf whose love he must win is Jed.  Wounded after the loss of his wife and son, Jed promised he would never love again or be responsible for someone else’s happiness. Adam has been given a near impossible task.

Anubis is eager to see Adam fail, and unbeknown to everyone takes matters into his own hands to make sure of it. Everything happening now is part of his master plan, and finally it has come full circle.

Even if Adam succeeds and wins Jed’s heart, will that love survive when Jed discovers the whole thing was nothing more than a bet? Or when Adam does the one thing he mustn’t and falls in love himself, will he not only break Jed’s heart but completely destroy his own?
Excerpt

Jed gentled his hand as Adam mewled in the back of his throat, both of Adam’s hands surrounding his neck and pressing tightly with an overwhelming urge to simply hang on.

They shared kisses. Shared air. Jed swallowed every reaction from Adam because it was precious. Finally, he wiped his hand and their bodies clean on the sheet and drew Adam in closer.

His heart beat loudly in his ears. Jed didn’t want to think about what they had just done, and let reality intrude on the bliss that seemed to wrap them both up. It wasn’t the whole fucking a guy thing, even though he was still in shock about that. It was the need inside of him, the nameless urge that transcended sex or narrow bigoted views of what made other people happy. In a lot of ways, it wasn’t even the fact that Adam was human and Jed was not.

It was his unshaking doubt that as soon as Jed trusted, as soon as Jed let in a little belief, as soon as Jed started thinking in terms of forever… That’s when it would happen. That’s when his forever would be ripped away. It had with his family. The day his father hadn’t returned from the hunt because of a human’s bullet. The day they’d fled their home because the forest was cleared to make a human town, and his family had no idea how to live in one. The day he was out scrounging for food to fill their empty bellies because it was winter and they should have been warm and safe in their homes, and his little sister had been attacked by a rogue. The rogue had been insane, half-mad with whatever injustice had caused him to attack a pup, and his mom had died trying to defend her.

And then he had trusted once more. Raye had waltzed into his life and danced his objections away. Then it had happened again, as surely as Jed feared it would.

He clutched Adam tighter, knowing his hold wouldn’t last, knowing Adam would be ripped from him like everyone else…

He no longer had any dreams that could be taken from him. He’d accepted long ago that the pack would be his life, but he would go home alone every day. He almost didn’t mind because he knew it wasn’t a matter if Adam would realize he was a pathetic old man and would leave.

It was simply a matter of when.

AuthorBio

Has loved books for as long as she can remember. Books were always what pocket money went on and what usually Father Christmas brought. When she ran out of her kids’ adventure stories, she would go raid her Mom’s. By the age of eight she was devouring classics like Little Women, and fell in love with love stories.

She’s still in love with them. Any size, any shape, any creature – love is love, no matter what it says on the box.

In fact if they don’t fit very neatly into any box she loves them even more!

She has a very patient husband and three wonderful children. In 2010 in search of adventure they all moved from the UK to the US and are happily settled in Florida.

In 2013 after reading love stories for so long she decided to write her own.

A Paul B Release Day Review: Full Circle (Sirius Wolves #7) by Victoria Sue

Standard

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

full-circle-by-victoria-sueAnubis has been called before the council of the gods.  Orion, current leader of the gods, and four senior gods are to pronounce punishment on Anubis for interfering with humans and werewolves.  His punishment will be permanent banishment.  The gods are surprised when Anubis readily agrees to his punishment—until he said that if he is to be banished, so should Sirius, Orion’s wife.  He points out that Sirius gave the human Marcus a wolf when he was injured, even though the werewolf voluntarily gave up his wolf.  He proposes a wager.  Sirius appoints a champion who must win the heart of the werewolf with the hardest heart.  If the champion succeeds, the Anubis will leave the earth alone.  If he fails, the Anubis will cause the destruction of all werewolves, hybrids included, and the champion must serve as his mate for all eternity in hell.  And the champion must accomplish his mission in two weeks.  The gods accept the challenge.

Sirius knows just who her champion will be.  Her son Horus, the only child born of two gods, will go to earth as a human named Adam, named after the mythical first man.  Adam arrives just in time for selection of human gammas that will help guard the Jefferson pack lands.  When he arrives, he meets Jed, pack beta and leader of security.  Adam passes the physical tests easily due to his godly powers.  When another recruit tricks Adam and causes his removal from the program, he wonders if he failed in his mission on his first day.  When Jed finds Adam after learning the truth, Adam has come down with a bad cold after walking in the rain most of the day.  Jed nurses him back to health but a week has passed.  Can Adam win over Jed before time runs out on both him and the werewolves?

This seventh book in the Sirius Wolves series is another winner.  This time the gods are more directly involved in matters as the premise of Anubis’ bet drives the action.  I liked how Adam tries to make himself as human as possible but knows little to nothing about what it means to be human in terms of day to day living.  He does not feed himself the first day and his dietary habits cause some shock among the werewolves.  The Colby pack is back and again causing problems for Blaze and the group.  And if you think Anubis will fight fair, you can think again.  If the series has indeed come full circle like the title suggest, this would be a good book to end it on. 

The cover’s theme is the same as the previous books in this series.  A young shirtless man stands in front of a starry night sky.  I believe that is Jed that is supposed to be portrayed here.  Again, the cover art was done by E Connors.
