Genre: Paranormal Romance
Marguerite, the daughter of a wealthy senator, has little interest in the socialite life her father wants for her. So when New Orleans friends decide to go to a bar called Sanctuary, curiosity prompts her to tag along. There she meets Wren, a shy busboy. The attraction is immediate on both sides--and dangerous. Wren is a hybrid were-animal, an outcast even in his own supernatural world, and he's been marked for death. Marguerite should leave, but their fates and hearts are now entwined, and she knows there is no turning back.
One of my top and favourite Dark-Hunter books. I just love how it started, my favourite line from the first page:
“Life is a soul-sucking test that you either survive or fail. Personally I think failure blows, so I intend to survive and laugh my ass off at all the losers”.Marguerite didn’t match her snooty lifestyle that she lived; she’s down to earth and makes her own mind-up based on her moral compass, she’s strong. Wren and Marguerite had an instant connection and when walking home from the bar, where Wren works, alone after her study group causing trouble some muggers try to get the best of her, Wren jumps in and saves her taking a bullet to the shoulder for her. Wren has had a tough life, his parents not wanting him and being an outsider, he also happens to have magic. With other were’s out to kill him, Wren gets injured and finds shelter at Maggie’s, shifting into his tiger form, which she handled pretty well everything considered, keeping him safe for four days. Wren and Maggie travel back in time to get proof that Wren didn’t kill his parents, where Wren’s father bites Marguerite in tiger form effectively giving her animal powers, making her a were-tiger. Lots of twists and turns in this book, the way everything turned out with Wren’s father was unexpected and I loved how Maggie loved Wren before she knew how much money he had, she loved him for who he was on the inside not what his standing was. A real page turner I couldn't put down.
