They may not be made for each other, but animal instincts are impossible to ignore.
Madisyn Drake is a rare breed of cat shifter…a loner, unpredictably wild, and emotionally distant. A recent betrayal has left her ready to sharpen her claws on the next man she sees…until a prowling wolf with steel-gray eyes and a brooding dark edge challenges her distrust. No matter how fully he satisfies her touch-hunger, Madisyn’s not ready to open up again, even if it is oh so gratifying.
Bracken Slater has earned his reputation as an indomitable predator. Once broken by grief and guilt, Brack is feeling alive again, thanks to the heady scent of this independent feline. Convincing her that they’re meant for each other is going to take more than branding Madisyn’s beautiful neck. She’s not interested in joining an unfamiliar pack, much less answering to an alpha. But when threats from both their pasts take shape, their unexpected destiny may be the only thing that can save them.
Echoes of Fire is the most recent addition to the Mercury Pack series, this pack features Nick and Shaya’s pack who are aligned with the Phoenix Pack—which were the first books in this world that Suzanne Wright has written. I have been addicted to these books and the spice filled characters that are packed within these books.
In Echoes of Fire, Madisyn Drake, works with the loner shifter shelter and is a loner herself. Madisyn is a rare form of feline that many shifters are wary of because they are unpredictable and feisty. She might be in trouble though, because she helped a bear shifter female escape her evil alpha of a bear pack and they want to know her location or she is going to pay the price including those that really care about her. Bracken Slater is a member of the Mercury Pack, and is a alpha male in his own right. But Bracken is struggling emotionally and mentally and he is starting to find his pack to be suffocating him. He is grieving over the loss of his family and the trauma of being the only surivivor. His pack are being supporting and patient but too stifling for Bracken with their affection and attention.
But when Bracken and Madisyn join forces and help each other, they soon discover what a strong connection that they have to each other. Madisyn doesn’t suffer fools and she is very bold and daring and doesn’t molly coddle Bracken like his pack does and it proves to be beneficial and helps Bracken in ways that other methods never did. Bracken still lives with the horrible memories that are haunting him but he is able to overcome the trauama with realizing that Madisyn is his rock. The romance that builds between Bracken and Madisyn is fiery hot and kick ass and bound to give the readers laughs and giggles. They were such a fun pairing with some terrible pasts of their own and they are able to really understand one another in ways that even those they consider family don’t understand them. They offer the balance that the other needs so flawlessly.
Overall I found Echoes of Fire to be stimulating and kick ass and a story that packs a punch in every way that matters….Suzanne Wright has won my heart once again!! SPECTACULAR READ!
