Summary (via Goodreads):
For the first time since Tessa met Dastien, life is quiet. The evil witch, Luciana, is six glorious feet under, St. Ailbe’s is closed due to human trespassers, and people are finally getting used to the fact that supernaturals exist in the world. It seems like the perfect time for a honeymoon.

After traveling to Dastien’s house in Provence, clubbing in Paris, and attending Meredith and Donovan’s Full Moon Ceremony in Ireland, Tessa and Dastien head to the Caribbean. Their trip is turning out to be the honeymoon that fantasies are made of-sunset cruises, long walks on the beach, and every romantic cliché you can imagine. Tessa couldn’t be happier. Except that Tessa’s visions are on the fritz. She hopes that means that nothing is brewing. That everything is quiet because all is well. But Tessa’s never been one to assume anything.

When she’s magically attacked and nearly dies, Tessa knows she can’t ignore the signs anymore. Something huge is going on. As much as she doesn’t want to call an end to their six-week honeymoon, it’s time to head back to Texas.

Whoever messed with Tessa is in for a rude awakening. Because if there’s one thing fighting rogue witches and werewolves has taught her, it’s how to be Alpha.


My Review:

I don’t have much to say about this book. It was an okay read but a stepping stone to something bigger that might happen to Tessa and friends.

Well, this was a battle I never expected. The antagonist was so villainous, I really had no clue how they would be defeated. It seemed like it was going to be one of those battles where some of the heroes don’t make it out alive. The suspense was grueling.

Many old faces appear but also a few new ones. These new characters I really liked. There was a certain swag about them that really clashed with all the other personalities.

I think Book 7 worked more as an introduction to Tessa learning what it means to be an Alpha. The way the story was told and how things ended, I predict another book where Tessa really comes into her own as an Alpha wolf.

This story is far from over, which is extremely exciting.
