Review: Haunted Sanctuary by Moira Rogers

Haunted Sanctuary (Green Pines #1) by Moira Rogers
Synopsis (Goodreads):
Eden Green can’t remember a time she didn’t believe in monsters—her cousin was born one. Her family’s dark past casts a long shadow, making it hard to make friends and harder to commit to a lover. She lives a quiet life in small-town Clover, Tennessee, but she’s always waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Tired of the city packs’ corruption, yet too alpha to be a subordinate in a sanctuary town, Jay Ancheta satisfies his need to protect by serving as Clover’s Chief of Police. As much as he’s drawn to Eden, he can’t offer forever to a woman who doesn’t know what he is—or trust himself to let her go after one taste.

When Eden’s cousin and his battered pack stagger into town, their tormentors hard on their heels, Eden is bitten in the chaos. Now Jay not only has a traumatized pack to deal with, but a newly turned wolf with enough hungry alpha power to consume them both.

With their combined strength, they can create a new sanctuary—if their passion can survive the ghosts of the Green family’s legacy.

Warning: Contains a newly turned werewolf heroine who enjoys a little rough dominance in bed and a badass alpha wolf hero who’ll fight bad guys, ghosts and even the past to protect what’s his. Be prepared for violence, death and heartbreak on the way to a happily ever after.
My Thoughts: Falling back into the world of Moira Rogers' Sanctuary wolves with their pack dynamics and corrupt leaders and sexy shenanigans in and out of the bedroom was more fun than I could have imagined. This world is deadly to those who don't have the backing of a strong pack and the way some of these wolves have been brutalized by those in power is heartbreaking in the extreme.

Eden and Jay are thrown into the middle of all the craziness when Zack, Eden's cousin, arrives back in town. Things go from bad to worse and soon they're preparing to hold their ground against some very nasty wolves who want nothing more than to spread pain to those weaker than them. I love when a reluctant hero steps up to the plate and takes charge. Jay not only wrangles this broken pack into a semblance of order, he also has to help guide Eden as she adjusts to being a wolf. Those two worked together. She's feisty and determined. He's strong and has a vision of what they could accomplish if the stars align.

I loved watching Jay and his buddies come together to build this new sanctuary from the ground up. Not only are they dealing with wolves who have been traumatized beyond belief, there are ghosts and nosy neighbors and a family legacy that packs quite a wallop.

All in all, it was great fun to step back into this world. The cast of supporting characters is intriguing and the danger surrounding everyone is riveting. More, please.

  1. I don't know if these are on my seriously series read. They might be but I am only up to K on the list LOL I hit Kenyon and kind of had to step back for a moment :)

    1. LOl! Kenyon's book do that to people. This book actually comes out tomorrow, so... I highly suggest getting it. I think the #NakedWerewolves and dirty sexin' speak for themselves. Oh, and the story's really good, too.

    1. Toooommmmmorrow! You should give her Red Rock Pass series a try if you haven't already. This series is set in the same world with minor crossover. You'd get a feel for the werewolf-y dynamics and such.
