Darcy has been taking care of his younger brother for so long, it’s almost like raising a son.  When they find themselves homeless, Darcy moves them from one place to another, hoping each new start will be the last.  When the men find themselves in Brac Village, Darcy starts to wonder if everything isn’t just a little too prefect.

Take My Hand is another addition to the Brac Pack series and tells the story of Raven, Dudley’s older brother, and Darcy, a young human trying to take care of himself and his brother, Sterling.  Once fans of this series see that Raven’s mate is both male and human, they know the vampire is in for a tough time.  While Raven does adjust fast, there are some obstacles that send him running for advice.  With Darcy being human, he is more than a little surprised to find out about the unusual residents of the village he is hoping to make his home.  The way he is introduced to the paranormal residents is over the top and goes a long way to explain his discomfort. 

The attraction between the two main characters is present from the beginning.  While Raven may be a virgin as far as having sex with men is concerned, you have a hard time seeing it once he gets Darcy in bed.  Raven works hard to help his new mate adjust and thanks to the help of many familiar secondary characters, the men find their happily ever after.

The author also uses Take My Hand to introduce a variety of new shifters seeking asylum, and it’s not too long before the troubles chasing them show up to cause Maverick and the others some problems.  I like the way the author continues to add new dimensions to this series to keep it from becoming stale.  Each new story leaves you wanting more and I cannot wait to see what else the author will bring her fans.
