Sapphire Flame (Flame #7) by Caris Roane
Synopsis: Having a strong dislike for fae of any kind, a wolf’s plan to become alpha gets derailed when a beautiful fae saves his life during a vicious rogue attack…
Davis Grant, an officer of the Five Bridges Border Patrol, is next in line to become alpha of the Meldorin Pack. Because the current alpha is a psychotic monster who brutalizes his own pack members, Grant has made it his number one priority to bring the alpha down. But when a rescue in the deadly Graveyard throws him together with Natalie, a powerful fae female, he finds his attention shifting abruptly to her. His attraction to this woman has his bonding instincts flying at light speed. But he despises the futurists of Revel Territory, women like Natalie, who used their gifts against Savage’s wolves during the Fae-Wolf Wars. When his alpha demands a dominance battle, will Grant set aside his deep prejudice and join forces with Natalie? Or will he go it alone and face certain death?
The last thing Natalie McKinnon ever wanted to do was get involved with a wolf of Savage Territory. But when a ghost appears and sends her to the Graveyard to save Grant’s life, Natalie finds herself drawn to this powerful, handsome wolf. She resists her attraction, however, since her best friend died at the hands of wolves during the Fae-Wolf Wars. But when she develops an iridescent astral wolf of her own, and as new powers emerge, she must set aside her animosity or face capture and enslavement at the hands of the brutal alpha of the Meldorin Pack.
Review: This one was a lot longer than others in the series so it had a slower pace and no rushed feeling. Same concept and character development as the others in the series have had so there were no surprises. Great conflict and good characters. I enjoyed it, but would have liked a bit more emotional tension between the two main characters and their main obstacle which was of being different species. I think that would have added to the plot. Overall enjoyable, though, and continue to enjoy the series.
