Matthias Slaughter, a wolf breed and highly trained assassin,  was freed from the labs long ago. Tattoos cover his body and earrings pierce his skin. One thing never touches him, however, and that is love – or so he thinks. Sent to assassinate one of the Genetics Council members, he lies in wait for the monster to return. There is just a bit of a problem. One of the hotel staff, a woman Matthias has spent much time with just witnessed his cold blooded assassination.   Matthias does the only thing that will keep her alive – he kidnaps her. After all, he might not know it yet, but Grace is his mate and he will do anything to keep her from harm.

Grace laments the fact that the man she thought she knew is a killer.   Not happy, she threatens and pleads to be let loose.  She fell in love with Matthias during the past several weeks and her heart is broken with the belief that he is actually completely different from her perceptions. But, as time passes and Grace opens her heart up to the wolf breed, something happens. The heart she tried to harden softens and Matthias steals his way into it once again. She is his mate and there is nothing she wouldn’t do in order to make a life with him.  


Matthias and Grace only have a few days to realize their love. It seems that the Genetics Council has found them and now that evil wants Grace and is willing to kill Matthias to get to her.  


I don’t know how Lora Leigh does it, but I am glad she does.  She weaves her magic around IN A WOLF’S EMBRACE creating an incredible novella. Matthias Slaughter is not a breed that we have been exposed to yet. He is scarred, he has tattoos, and he is one delicious bad boy!  But, in every bad boy’s life there is a woman that completes him and that woman is Grace. Her name says it all.  She is regal, she is graceful, and she is loyal. Her love for Matthias brought tears to my eyes and made my heart beat faster. Their love scenes are explosive, breathtaking, and so real even I blushed.  


I was very happy to see a new wolf breed story from this author.   As a breed junkie, I can’t get enough of this series, and without a doubt, Ms. Leigh can write one heck of a story.  IN A WOLF’S EMBRACE will grab you, it will make you sit spellbound, and you won’t stop reading until the very last word.     


IN A WOLF’S EMBRACE is a novella in the anthology Beyond the Dark which releases on December 4, 2007.
