I really enjoyed this book. It's the sixth in the series and I loved that the author didn't have the main problem be about explaining g=how the hero becomes a wolf. It's more relationship problems.
Rand works construction so when a house near his is occupied by a new owner it's news because the house should have been condemned. Natalie has inherited the home and it's rent-free so she's home. She knows it will take a lot to make it livable but she has no idea of the cost of remodeling a home. She thinks she can do it on tips.
Rand met Natalie when he was younger but never felt anything for her but now he can't live without her but he comes on too soon and she knows he doesn't love her. What woman wants to be in a state of lust instead of love, no one. She can't stay with him but he's okay for a while.
Natalie knows what Rand is but she doesn't get the wolf thing even though she wants to cuddle his wolf.
