Blurb: Fire elemental Mollie Ferguson is on the wrong side of a group of enraged shifter wolves. She’s been secretly investigating a plot that could destroy the small-town supernatural haven of Maggie’s Grove. But when a beloved pack member is killed, everyone thinks she’s the murderer. In desperation, she turns to the one person who will help her–the true mate she rejected. His presence rekindles an old, irresistible desire, and makes her wish she’d chosen differently.
Without Mollie as his lover, the dryad Greer Berkley is dying, the leaves of his birch turning to autumn shades. But he will not allow himself to fade until he has ensured Mollie’s safety. All know Greer as a healer, but few know the true depth of his power as a defender.
Greer and Mollie must complete her investigation and clear her name before the pack demands vengeance. And if they are to know each other’s touch at last, the only chance is now, before it’s too late for Greer.
Review: Another really good one for this series. One of the things I like about these books is that the characters are seriously quirky and fun even in the midst of all the crazy that goes on around them. This book is no exception.
It is possible that Greer is my favorite character in this series. His sense of humor and play is endearing and contagious. I wasn’t as big of a fan of the back and forth doubts between him and Mollie, but that didn’t seem to last too long so it didn’t hamper my enjoyment of the book.
I’d definitely like to see an end to the demon involvement and have something a bit new for the characters of Maggie’s Grove to deal with for a change, but it looks like it is something that may be there for the long haul of the series.
