I see him and I know what this turmoil inside of me means: He's the one. My forever.
Kayla is the nature lover, the all-American beauty who can't understand why she's so drawn to distant, brooding Lucas. Adopted as a young child, she has no way of knowing that she's inherited a terrifying-and thrilling-gene that will change her life forever.
Lucas is dangerous, gorgeous... and a werewolf. As leader of the Dark Guardians, shape-shifters who gather deep within the state park, he has sworn to protect his pack. But when Lucas finds his true soul mate, his love could put them all in harm's way.
As Lucas and Kayla struggle with their feelings for each other, a greater danger lurks: Humans have discovered the Dark Guardians and are planning their destruction. Kayla must choose between the life she knows and the love she feels certain is her destiny.
Oh, how I love this series. Its was a great read. This book is like no other. That is if you like light and fluffy stories. Which I do of course. This is a werewolf story. In this book there are shifters. The male shifters shift first, and the females shift on the first moon after their seventeenth birthday. In order for the females to survive the shift they must be there with a male shifter. Preferably a male shifter who has chosen them for a mate.
Kayla parents were killed when she was little, so she had no idea that she was shifter. He goes to camp every summer. Upon this summer is Kayla’s seventeenth birthday. At camp she meets Lucas the leader of the camp. He is also the leader of the shifters. Lucas draw dangerously close to Kayla. She has no idea that he has chosen her for his mate.
Lucas is such a gentle and patient man. Even when Kayla refused him he stood by waiting in the wings for her. Kayla and Lucas finally declare their love for each other. Kayla finally accepted the idea of being a shifter and accepted Lucas.
This book is told in a romance style. There are currently four books in the series. What I like most about it, is that it is all romance without the other junk. (sex, drugs, etc.) A teenager could read this book. But I will warn you it is real light and fluffy. So if you like that kind of read check it out!
