The most scarred heart can’t run from love forever.

Sanctuary’s Price

Dylan Gennaro is reeling from the changes in his life: a new home, a new alpha, a pack at war. Still, he doesn’t hesitate to protect an outcast witch, thinking it will help him rediscover his own inner strength.

Wounded in body and spirit, Sasha Wallace found refuge with the Red Rock pack. Yet her willingness to lend her powers to the battle makes her an object of suspicion. Except for Dylan. Their attraction is a balm to their wounded hearts, until they face a fight for which neither has the strength. Unless they do it together.

Sanctuary Unbound

After eighty years of solitude, a life debt owed to the Red Rock alpha forces Adam Dubois to leave his retreat—where he encounters a woman who challenges and tempts him on every level.

Cindy Shepherd isn’t concerned that her interest in the mystery-shrouded new vampire in town seems mutual. After all, it’s only sex—there’s no danger he’ll dig deep enough to unleash her demons.

Casual flirtation turns deadly serious when Adam discovers an evil has followed his tracks to Red Rock. To survive, Adam and Cindy must trust each other with more than just their lives…

My rating:

A moon-crazed wolf, a witch, and their two boyfriends go to Maine to seek a vampire...
No, this isn't a beginning of a joke, but it sure sounds like one, the above-mentioned vampire observed in the second story in this omnibus.

This second installment (the third and fourth book in the series combined) wasn't as good or as strong as the previous two, mostly because the second story reminded me a lot of C. Feehan's universe, but still they were much better than most paranormals adorning the selves out there.

This time, Ms. Rogers added a witch and a vampire lumberjack (don't ask) to the werewolf mix and got interesting (and funny at times) results. The pacing was a little slow at times, but the stories more than compensated for it with characterization, action scenes, drama, and hotness.

Definitely an author to watch out for.
