Synopsis: Unmated werewolves don’t normally live past three hundred years old...and billionaire Jack MacGrath is cutting it close. Sure, he has almost everything—the respect of his peers, a mansion in San Francisco, a private jet, and fast cars. But without a mate, Jack's in trouble. Then he sees her. Gorgeous, proud...and his enemy.
Isabelle Connelly is good at hiding things from her father. Like her success as a painter, or the incredibly intense attraction she has to Jack MacGrath. After all, she's royalty and falling for anyone lesser—to say nothing of a rival pack—would be, er, unseemly. Now she must choose between her duty to her family and her pack...or her perfect fated mate.

5-Stars Review

It was a fun read. I liked the story line and all the characters. Story flows smoothly and its hard to put it down once you started. There are many humorous scenes as well as romantic ones.

It depicts struggles of a woman (Isabelle) who is desperate to get her father's approval, and he is very difficult man to please. For him family and pack come first, from the very start he taught his daughter to be dutiful, to do what is right for the pack even if its not right for her. Her happiness is a price he is willing to pay in name of pack's betterment after all she is going to be alpha once he died. Isabelle loves her father and for her his happiness is all that matters. It doesn't mean that she won't try to make him see her side but without his approval first she will never take any step in the direction of her heart's desire....

On the other hand there is Jack, he is fighting to stay alive, unless he finds one person he can bond with. For him Isabelle is the "fated one". He is old and a lone wolf cannot live as long as he already has, it is clear that he is living on borrowed time. Now he must convince Isabelle to choose him over her father and her clan because that might be the only way for Jack to live...

For paranormal lovers this book is a real treat. I enjoyed reading it and will recommend to my reader friends.

Also in the San Francisco Wolf Pack series...
