Having his hopes for a normal life dashed at a young age, Jin Rayne is trying to make a new life in a new city. His attempt to stay clear of were-tribes comes crashing to a halt and the truth behind Jin’s abilities begins to surface. He’s too rare to avoid fate forever and Logan Church is his fate…. his future mate.

Logan Church will do anything for his pack, but refuses to be denied happiness or love, and Jin is the source of both. The men will encounter trials that will strengthen their resolve and create an anchor strong enough to support their love while creating a safe haven for those they love.

I’ll admit Mary Calmes’ cover for Change of Heart lured me in and made me take a moment to read the blurb for this story. While there is enough information to give you a glimpse of what is to come, you still aren’t prepared for the action and suspense in this story, or the pure attraction of Logan and Jin. There were moments where Jin truly had me pulling my hair out but when you learn of his past, you cannot help but feel for the younger man. There were a few times where I sat back in disbelief, but understood it took a while to trust those like him. His desire to hide his true abilities and nature were justifiable. Logan is a man of many talents. Watching his actions and reactions to the events around him showed his strength and depth of caring for Jin. The story draws you in from the first scene and never releases its hold until the final sentence. While I’m not sure if Ms. Calmes will have more stories, she definitely has created some fascinating supporting characters that I hope to read about in the future.
