by Rachel M. Raithby
Genre: YA/NA Fantasy Romance
Release Date: August 4th 2019
While war looms on the horizon, two powerful wolves fight a far more intimate war in this next installment of the New Dawn novels.
Logan’s childhood taught him love comes with the potential of pain. Long ago, he decided he’d never have a mate, but one explosive encounter with Mia—a woman as lethal as she is beautiful—has him questioning everything. There’s a problem. Her heart’s as closed off as his and winning her isn’t going to be easy.
River Run soldier Mia doesn’t allow men close, especially not those who hope to capture her heart. The last person she expects to find herself drawn to is a Dark Shadow wolf renowned for his playboy ways. Not only is he sexy, but he’s also charming—a dangerous combination. Getting close to Logan will end in heartbreak. But with Logan’s bold pursuit to win her difficult to ignore, there’s a clash coming.
Logan and Mia find themselves playing the most passionate of games and when everything comes to a head, they must decide if loves worth the risk.

A week passed with no sign of Logan, but his gifts were everywhere she turned. Parcels of food on her patrol runs, a recent CD from her favorite band, a sequel to the book she was about to finish, a scarf as red as blood, the matching fingerless gloves the next day, a toy wolf with copper eyes tucked into her bed. Gift after gift, each one a chip in her armor until she couldn’t even pretend to scowl when she found one anymore. Logan was winning. His plan was working, and when Mia came home that day to find a jewelry box with the matching necklace to the bracelet she’d bought herself months before in the center of her bed, she knew it had to stop. If Logan wasn’t coming to her, she’d go to him. And maybe if he was lucky, she’d only spill a little blood.
Driven half by a need that scared her and anger that burned, Mia crossed from River Run into Dark Shadow without seeking permission beforehand. Unsurprisingly, she’d reached the edge of their inner circle when Bass merged from the shadows, Katalina not far behind him.
“Where is he?” Mia asked, forcing herself to take a beat. To speak with respect.
“That depends. Will I still have one of my best men standing by the time you’re finished with him?” Bass asked, his lips lifted just a fraction to tell her he found the whole situation amusing.
“Don’t be silly, Bass. She’s only going to talk to him. Aren’t you, Mia?” Katalina answered. She wasn’t amused; in fact, if Mia was reading her correctly, Katalina was concerned. Who for, Mia wasn’t sure.
“Honestly, Katalina, I’m not much of a talker,” Mia replied, sliding her hands into her jacket pockets casually while her insides were crawling with the urge to hunt Logan down. “He’ll live. I can promise you that.”
“He’s east of here. If you’re unable to track him, he’s too good for you,” Bass said matter-of-factly.
“Bass.” Katalina slapped him lightly, shaking her head.
Mia gritted her teeth, her fingers curling inside of her pockets. It wasn’t in her nature to let comments like that slide. “You know, if you weren’t Dark Shadow’s alpha, I might take offense to that statement.”
Bass surprised her by laughing. “Don’t let that stop you. I like a challenge.”
She smiled. “I think I’m going to like you.”
Dashing east before they could reply, Mia’s wolf rose to the surface. Taking in her unfamiliar surroundings, she soon caught his scent on the breeze. Earth and warmth and a scent that was uniquely Logan, he was a drug to her senses, a caress to her soul. Slowing her pace, Mia went predator quiet and stalked her prey. Wolf in her eyes, a smile on her face, this was the best kind of hunt.
