Knight in almost shining armor ✔
A perfectly quaint small town ✔
Best sex ever ✔✔
Charline Montgomery has Southern charm in spades. What she doesn’t have is any understanding of werewolf politics. But that’s not about to stop her from accepting her new beau’s offer to spend the summer together at the pack’s House. Not only is David Bringer sexy-as-hell and quite possibly the most incredible man she’s ever met, he also saved her best friend’s life.
A force to be reckoned with, Charline leverages her culinary skills with the goal of winning over his entire extended family. Considering she didn’t even know werewolves existed a year ago, she thinks she’s doing a pretty good job fitting in. That is…until a blast from David’s past sends everything to hell in a handbasket.
Faster than butter can melt on a hot pan, a lifetime of doubts and insecurities cloud Charline’s sunny disposition. Determined to prove her mama didn’t raise no quitter, she pours on the honey. It might have worked too, except an insurrection seems to be brewing within the pack, turning her furry friendlies into ferocious hostiles. Forget saving her relationship. Charline might not make it out with her life.
This is not the fairytale she signed up for…
Charline’s Solstice can be read as a stand alone, but for maximum enjoyment should be read after Sara’s Moon. Charline’s story is full of Southern sass, life-lessons from Mama, baking to make your mouth water, a delicious werewolf boyfriend, and a hard-won HEA sure to melt any heart.
CW: bullying, gaslighting, miscarriage, consent by duplicity, extreme violence, death.
Charline is a force to be reckoned with. Always bursting with cheer and confidence she wields her words like she does her whisk. I loved Charline and David’s love story; even though David’s actions, or should I say inaction, made me want to scream at times. The challenges that they end up facing only serve to make their love that much more meaningful. Wonderful story with some twists that you never see coming. I can’t wait to see what happens in the Moons of Mystery series next!
