Goodreads Summary:
Aidan, the Wolf of Awe, has abandoned the Brotherhood and forsaken his vows. Feared by all and trusted by none, he hunts alone, seeking vengeance against the evil that destroyed his son. He has not saved an Innocent in sixty-six years—until he hears Brianna Rose's scream of terror across centuries, and leaps to modern-day Manhattan to rescue her.…

Brie is a gifted empath who spends her time fighting evil from the safety of her laptop—and fantasizing about the medieval Highlander she met just once. Still, her life is pretty ordinary—until she awakens one night consumed with Aidan's pain and rage. When Aidan suddenly appears and takes her hostage, Brie cannot believe how dark and dangerous he has become. She knows she should be afraid, but instead, she will fight across time for his redemption…and his love.

This book touched me in so many ways, Aidan, tough very rough around the edges master, who slips into a deeper darker side when he loses his son. Not caring about anything other than revenge until Brie pops into his life.

Brie, is a character that I can honestly say I could really relate too. A girl who has dates with her laptop- fighting evil from home all the while dreaming of the Master she only met once.

The emotions in this book was overwhelming, you could definitely relate to Aidan's pain, and Brie's frustration in trying to bring back the man she believe he could be back from the darkness he sunk into.

Did I like it better than book one or two? Yes though Malcolm and Royce's past was troubled and dark in some ways , Aidan's was 100 times worse and you see a man that no longer cared if he lived or died as long as he could act revenge on the person who responsible for destroying his son.

Would I recommend this book? Yes as well as Book 1 and 2 though you don't have to read in order but it does help.

My Rating for this book is 5 out of 5 stars

I enjoyed the books so it is even more of a joy seeing that you are too Donna, nice to see someone else discover the wonderful characters and situations created by the author in this series as it plays out over the 5 books!

I happen to know a few things about Brenda Joyce (did I already tell you this? I may have. I can't remember.) Anyway, she was an author that I used to love back in my bodice ripper reading days. She wrote this one book called The Conqueror that I read a snip it of and it was a rather um, strong? Masterful? I can't think of the right word. But it was a rough scene while being sexy in that "take the decision away from me and make me love you" sort of way. It's kind of funny to see that she's writing paranormal romance now.

Good review Donna!
