Ever. She might be young and inexperienced, but she was a woman. And she had finally had enough! Cian Hennessey might be the most magnificent, infuriating, arrogant male she had ever known. But the tall Bloodrunner treated her as if she were nothing more than a child, making it painfully clear that despite whatever connection they shared, he’d never see her as an adult female. After disappearing from her life for five years, the werewolf was back, claiming that she was in serious danger and must drop everything to go with him immediately.
Cian was as deadly as he was beautiful. But the young witch knew he would never cause her physical harm. The safety of her heart, however, was a different matter.
Blood Wolf Dawning picks up about 5 years after Blood Wolf Returning. When Cian makes his reluctant return he realizes that a lot has changed. He knows he won’t be welcomed with open arms, but he has no choice. He’s returning for the same reason he left. To protect Sayre.
Sayre doesn’t want to have anything to do with Cian. She can’t afford to have him break her heart again. He made it clear that blood bond or not, he wasn’t interested in her the way she was in him. Cian has to convince the pack that he needs to protect Sayre, while also trying to convince Sayre that she needs to be protected. All while keeping a huge secret from everyone he’s ever really cared about.
I’ve read books 4-7 in this series and I’ve enjoyed them all. I’ve got to confess though that none of them have hit me quite the way that Blood Wolf Dawning did. Readers knew that there had to be more than the age difference that made Cian fight his obvious attraction to Sayre. His secret was bigger than anyone ever imagined.
There were hints in the beginning of the book that clued me in, but his friends were totally floored. Then he had to tell Sayre that his brother wasn’t the only person he was trying to protect her from. It wasn’t only his revelation that broke my heart for him, but his opinion of himself that did me in. He honestly thought that not just Sayre, but his friends would be better off not having him around. Sayre and the Bloodrunners had a different opinion. I fell in love with all of them all over again.
I’m kind of hoping that there are more Bloodrunners books coming. There are still a few guys who haven’t found a mate and more than a few that I’d like to get to know a little better. So far though, Cian is my favorite.
