A Mate’s Redeeming Touch (Black Hills Wolves #44) by Merryn Dexter
**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.**
Ven, a lone wolf that prefers to remain in wolf form, is being reassigned and will be working for Ryker, the Pack Enforcer. Ven, not the sociable sort, still struggles due to a difficult childhood.
Caitlyn, a victim of the former Alpha, Magnus, is returning to Los Lobos with her family due to her brother, Caleb’s, recent mating to Hannah. Caitlyn, because of Magnus and his evilness, is terrified of men.
Fate steps in and brings these two troubled souls together, knowing they need each other to heal and find their HEA, which doesn’t seem like a possibility thanks to the first, and second, impression Ven made. In his defence though, he knows he reacted badly, but feels she deserves a whole mate, not a damaged one. Hmmm…Caitlyn feels the same way about herself and that Ven deserves more.
It seems fate thought these two completely opposite personalities would be perfect for each other. Ven, not a people person on a good day, honed his snarly attitude as a defensive mechanism. Caitlyn however, an Omega by nature, is submissive and happy helping others.
Will Ven embrace his chance at happiness with Caitlyn or push her away, thinking she deserves better? Will Caitlyn fight for her mate, for the life they could have together? Will Caitlyn, and her family, let go of what happened to her ten years ago, helping her to start healing? Will Caitlyn start living again? As Caitlyn starts facing her past figuratively, what happens when Ven is confronted with his past literally?
One-click now and find out. Please keep in mind this book is part of a series and previous characters are continually referred to and are a part of each subsequent story. However, I do feel each author does a good job of ensuring their contribution to the series provides enough of the necessary information so you aren’t lost if you haven’t read from the beginning.
