With the Wolf Council after her, Amber is on the run. Leaving Blake behind, her true love, she’s never been in one place long enough to make any other friends and when she actually meets Giovana, Amber is happy to have a friend, but leery.  With good reason.

Author Information

MaryLynn Bast grew up in Texas. An avid reader, she enjoyed writing romantic short stories. After moving to Las Vegas in 201o and starting a new chapter in her life, she followed her dream of publishing her first book, a paranormal romance, in 2012 and continues to write stories for the Heart of a Wolf Series. She is branching out and beginning the Panther Pride Saga. A few other stories are in the works as well.

MaryLynn is a full time author and a full time student working on her Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design. Working with several diferent companies who did government contracts for the US Military, MaryLynn was able to travel the world, meeting new and interesting people.

To further her knowledge into the paranormal world, MaryLynn joined a group in Vegas. In doing so, another passion was brought back to life. Her fascination with the spirit world inspired her to team up with a friend. Forming CAT Parapsychic, together and with other team members, they investigate all things paranormal.

MaryLynn has several blogs she keeps updated on a regular basis. Her book blog can be found at www.mlbast.com. Her Paranormal blog can be found at http://www.catparapsychic.com.

My Review:

     This story is very alluring. As each page would come to an end, I found myself flipping to the next out of pure curiosity. All of these reasons and many more, that I can't give due to spoilers, is why I give this book a five star rating.
Amber has seen more than her fair share of trouble and experienced more than someone of her age should have to. She longs for companionship, but is met with the brutal truth that seeking this will only lead her to misery. 
     The character development of this book is admirable, leaving each character very likable. Each have their own back story, which I am very excited to learn more about. I haven't read paranormal romance in a good bit and the fact that I found myself feeling what the characters did made me love the book even more. 
     I do not give away spoilers in a review, but I can say I thoroughly enjoyed this book. MaryLynn did an exceptional job at grabbing the reader by the horns and pulling them into the story. I was sad when the end of the book came and I can’t wait to read more. I would like to read more about Blake and Darius. Oh Darius. For some reason he won me over and I followed every movement his piercing blue eyes made. Definitely would love to read more about him. **hint hint MaryLynn**
