Isaiah Striker always puts family first, which is why he’s traveled across the country to pick up the belongings of his new sister-in-law. He hates crowded cities and its streets filled with scared, hopeless, smelly humans. Isaiah longs for the clean-scented woods where his wolf can run free with his family and pack members. That changes the night he walks down a busy street and hears a female voice that calls to him – pulling the lone wolf inside a bar to a destiny he doesn’t want and didn’t expect. He has a mate and he’s not giving her up, no matter what happens.

Meredith Cross and her children have been on the run from her brutal pack for years. Through willpower alone she’s made a home, taking in several half-breeds needing her care and built a nightclub business, hiding her and her children in plain sight. They’ve safe until the hunters and purist werewolves find them, but now their lives and all she’s worked for is in danger. Meredith wants Isaiah, but is afraid having him in her life is dangerous -- her only choice is to put her pack first and send her mate away.

Isaiah’s Haven is the second release in the paranormal shape-shifter series Legacy. It’s another fast paced, action packed look into the world of werewolves and the hunters who seek to destroy them.

The characters of Meredith and Isaiah are interesting and unique. The author has done a wonderful fleshing out their personalities and making the reader understand what makes them tick by smoothly giving snippets of background information at critical points in the story. The plot is smooth, the emotions passionate and intense and the integration of the secondary characters seamless. I loved that Meredith wasn’t a sweet young thing, but a mature and responsible woman. She’s a dedicated alpha female who has had years of experience taking care of herself and her children-her pack. Isaiah is more of a lone wolf, but he’s equally as determined to protect the people he loves. He and Meredith are perfect compliments and when these two get together watch the passion and fur fly.
