Three years ago, Summer Morrison’s happy, normal life was thrown into upheaval. Forced to discover, before she was ready, that she was half-wolf shifter and mated to the pack’s enforcer has left Summer moody, shaken, and resentful. When tragedy strikes her family, Summer is forced to come back to the world of the Westervelt Wolves…and into the arms of Cullen Murphy.

Cullen has waited three years for Summer, having promised her mother he would give her time to grow up. But he’s never forgotten his mate and craved her presence since he first saw her on the battlefield three years earlier. The trouble is, now that Cullen has Summer, he has no idea what to do with her. Three hundred years of being alone has left Cullen socially inept and more lonesome than he would ever admit. He lives with the guilt and shame of his deeds, while knowing his role is pivotal to the pack’s survival.

Together, Cullen and Summer will heal each other’s wounds and discover that life is worth living as long as they are together. Now there’s just the little matter of Kendrick and Claudius, their evil henchmen, the army of miscreant wolves, and the demons that keep attacking. If they can survive, their love will be everlasting. But failure will mean not only their destruction, but the end of the Westervelt Wolves.

When love is eternal, failure is not an option.

The Westervelt Wolves series from Rebecca Royce is turning out to be an immaculately beautiful series.

Summer has spent the last 3 years waiting and longing for her mate to come and take her back to the remote island in Maine where the pack resides. But as she sits waiting he never shows. Summer has never felt more neglected and rejected before. On a trip home something horrible happens sending Summer on the ride of her life... literally.

Cullen has been counting the days from when he first found out that Summer was his mate, until the day when he is allowed to go get her and have her to himself for eternity. Unfortunately he has made a promise to Summer's mother that he won't try and pursue Summer until she has finished school... which is still 2 years away. When something bad happens at Summer's home Cullen knows that he has to save his mate before something comes between them forever. Can Summer and Cullen deal with the tragic events that come to a head or will they come between them?

After reading Her Wolf I was in dire need for more delicious wolfiness. And Rebecca Royce didn't fail to appease my need. Summer's Wolf is the sequel to Her Wolf in which we learn about Ashlee's sister Summer and her mate Cullen. Instead of being drawn to the main character like I was in Her Wolf, I was more drawn to Cullen. He was complicated and a sweet fumbling fool. Which I like to think most men are like... they are just hiding it... I hope.

Cullen is 300 years old. He has seen a lot of horrible things in his time and done even more horrible things. Upon being reunited with Summer he has no clue how he is supposed to act around her, and is worried that all the stupid things that are coming out all wrong are going to scare her off. I loved that the most respected member of the pack was so insecure. It showed just how human he was. How ultimately his mate could be his destruction. Which at points I was seriously thought was going to happen... Summer isn't always easy on him.

Summer's wolf is beautifully written. It was as though I was seeing everything through Cullen's and Summer's eyes which brought on an amazing aspect to the story. Rebecca Royce has a style of writing that I have never encountered before hers and frankly.... its KICK ASS and absolutely amazing. She brings so much life to her characters and describes their feelings so that you feel what they are feeling. There were times in Summer's Wolf that I gasped, teared up, and laughed my ass off... I loved everything about this book from the first page until the very last. Pick up a copy of Summer's Wolf by Rebecca Royce and take an adventure with Summer and Cullen that is sure to be thrill packed and breathtakingly beautiful.
