I had not read the other books in the Brotherhood of Blood Series but this book was not effected and could be a stand alone. Jason is the strong Alpha of the local pack who has joined forces with the Vampires in the area. Carly is Sally's best friend. Carly is mated to a Vampire and Sally thinks she is human. As the story unfolds she discovers she has a touch of Werewolf blood, but even more forest magic. Sally discovers a relative she didn't know existed and hears about more relatives she wants to find.
An instant attraction to Jason grows quickly and passionately into erotic, loving and respectful partnership and mating. Both characters are developed to the point of really liking each of them. Although Jason is Alpha through and through he is able to see Sally as a partner not an inferior. Loved the book. Plot, passion and people all well done.
