Healers Need ….. Rhenna Morgan
Back cover …..
When the hunter is your mate, being prey is anything but terrifying.
Coyote shifter Tate Allen has been watching. Learning his mate every possible way before he moves in. Protecting her through the night, always from afar.
He’ll be the one to teach her about her gifts. He’ll be there when she changes for the first time.
With him, she’ll fulfill her destiny.
Elise Ralston loves Tate for the patience he’s shown. The faith he’s demonstrated–denying himself what he needs sexually, even as he teaches her about pleasure.
For Tate, Elise is willing to try. To revel in touch, to give him control…and to embrace her healer’s need.
But someone unknown is still stalking the clan, threatening more than Tate and Elise’s bond. And Elise is a prime target–precious for the magic she hasn’t even learned yet.
My review …..
I’ve not read the first book (Guardian’s Bond) and as it’s a story that continues in this book, I felt a few details were missing.
Tate is a coyote shifter, he’s known Elise is his mate for a while now, but he’s unsure how proceed, he knows she is running from something, her past has shaped her into the scared and nervous female.
Until a couple of months ago, Elise was unaware of the shifting community, she hadn’t believed her mother when she was told about her heritage (her mother had given up her magic and a chance of combining with an animal spirit) but now, (after something that happened in a previous book) Elise is in a community that not only does magic, but a breed of people who commune and change into animals.
Elise has to do a spirit quest to find out if she will receive an animal sprit, but more importantly, where she will fit into this new world.
The darkness that is chasing Elise is already known to the group of shifters, Priest (their leader) is in fact fighting the darkness, and watched as he lost family and members of his clan.
It’s a different twist on the usual shifter story.
It’s well written, well thought out. The characters are really likeable. And I will definitely be reading the first one, and the last one when it comes out (as far as the authors website says, it’s a trilogy) I was hoping for a few more characters to get a story.
