Honor Bound by Moira Rogers
Amazon product description:
Amaia accepts the right of the Demon Clans to rule the cities of America as they've done for centuries, but she can't understand her own clan's desire to exterminate even the werewolves who have retreated to the forests and into hiding. When her patrol squad catches a young wolf, terrified and alone, Amaia helps the girl escape torture and eventual death at the hands of her clan, even knowing the penalty for such treason is her own death.
Orion has two things left in the world: his honor and his sister. When a gorgeous demon crashes into the middle of his pack with his terrified sister in tow and an elite squad of assassins on her heels, honor dictates he protect her. But his pack, weary from war, is more than willing to turn Amaia over in exchange for their own lives, even though demons are known for their willingness to betray.
Amaia and Orion's only hope is to combine forces, an unheard of partnership between demon and werewolf made dangerous by their undeniable attraction. Orion may have the warrior skills necessary to defeat assassins, but can he trust his safety--and his heart--to a demon with the power to kill with a kiss?
This story by Moira Rogers is a short one - it's a super fast read! As I said in my mini review of the series Down and Dirty - I dropped everything when I got this story on the Kindle and read it immediately! I love Moira Rogers stuff.
My thoughts: This is a great little story - the timeframe is demon fast! I think the whole story takes place in a day or two. The characters are well formed and demand that you either love or hate them. Amaia is brave, strong, and independent. Orion is the dream guy that we all wish for.
The plot is fast paced but seemingly well planned. I love the modern setting that is eluded to. All-in-all - a story worth reading!
