Dark Wolf Running-Rhyannon Byrd

Dark Wolf Running Rhyannon Byrd Harlequin Nocturne, Dec 3 2013, $5.75 ISBN: 9780373885831 For several months, Bloodrunner Wyatt Pallaton impatiently waited for pureblooded Silvercrest Lycan Elise Drake to notice him, but this incredible female ignores him. Finally out of patience and tired of feeling like a jackass stalker, Wyatt decides to confront her with his feelings for her. Since the sexual assault three years ago, Elise has wanted to be left alone until recently. She has noticed the Bloodrunner out of the corner of her eye and moon dreams of him though she conceals her desire from everyone. Wyatt asks Elise to dance, which shakes her up as she wants to allow him to invade her space, but fears males ever since she was raped. Even with therapy, she never moved passed the attack. Elise rejects Wyatt who says he will accept friendship though he wants more. At home, one of her violators invades her house. Dejected while passing through her property, Wyatt hears her scream and intercedes but not before the drugged Lycan boasts he and his allies will finish the job before escaping. Wyatt vows to keep the woman he loves safe. The latest Bloodrunners romantic fantasy (see Dark Wolf Rising) is a taut thriller that grips series’ fans from the first dance until the final altercation. Fast-paced and loaded with action, the realistic lead couple’s emotional needs make the storyline a winner as the honorable hero struggles with self-control of his desire and she still poorly deals with PTSD from the first violation now worsened by her rapists return.
