A sisterhood bound by promise and woven with love.
Adoma, an idealist, inspires her closest friends — her soul sisters — to meet on an idyllic island off the coast of Africa for a ten-year reunion. She’s longing to reconnect, especially since she’s just turned her life inside out, leaving her former career overseas and her rich but controlling beau. Over the years, her friends have had their share of ups and downs too. Broken hearts, broken promises. They used to tell each other everything, but now Adoma senses secrets being kept, maybe even lies being told. What’s behind them? What happened to the trust she needs so badly?
As the secrets unravel, a life-threatening disaster emerges. Storm clouds gather in their island paradise while the ties of old friendship are strained to the limit. No one – including Adoma, knows whether the sisterhood will survive …or if their lives will ever be the same.

When Gia Valentina Santella’s parents died four years ago, she fled small town Monterey to pursue the high life in the big city where she could smother her grief by playing house in a luxurious high-rise apartment with sweeping views of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Carrying the soul of an extinct wolf alongside your own isn’t easy. Swapping into said wolf is even harder. Ask Theo Grey—he’s been doing it for ninety-eight years. Yet, after surviving two world wars, witnessing the space race and patiently enduring the eighties, you’d think he’d have seen it all, but nothing could have prepared him for meeting Tofino’s new vet, Drew O’Bannion and according to the wolf, his mate.
Drew loves her dog, sleeping in and coffee. She also loves being a vet. The main reason behind her accepting the veterinarian practice offered to her from a family friend. Hoping for a slower pace at life Tofino seemed the ideal spot. What she didn’t expect was Officer Theo Grey. Theo is tall, dark and drop dead gorgeous, a definite 10 on the ‘wow’ scale. Regardless of his looks, there is more to Theo, there is her unexpected attraction for him.

With their desire growing at an alarming rate and the threat of an unknown shooter roaming the woods of the coastal town, Theo must face the ultimate decision—let Drew go for her own safety or claim his mate for all time.
