⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 out of 5
A good quick read.
Peyton is the daughter of the Alpha, but when he took off and didn’t return, the pack took her and made her their maid. She owes them for taking care of her and giving her a roof over her head, even if she is treated as a slave. When she turns eighteen everything changes, and she becomes a free of the chains that have bound her.
Caine is the Alpha of the Katu Wolves and is looking for his mate. He is lonely and wants to find the one person to complete him. As “a wolf shifter he wants nothing more than to find his mate, protect his family, and serve his pack”. Too bad that he is unable to find his mate within his pack.
Peyton is free to roam whenever and wherever she wants now that she has left the pack, she was raised in. When the new Alpha figures out that Peyton is the key for him to become a true Alpha, he goes looking for her. Caine has his sights on his mate, but he must convince her that he’s not going to hurt her. Peyton finds her home and acceptance in a new pack and is called upon for advice by those in her new pack as the Alpha’s mate. I enjoyed this quick read and the characters in this story. I give the book a 4-star review. If you are looking for a quick shifter story to read with determined Alphas pick up His Refused Mate, by Jade Marshall.
