Might’s Karma

Author: Stephanie Hecht

ISBN/BIN: 978-1-77111-873-6
Genre: {M/M}, Paranormal, Series

Not only does Might have to overcome the abuse he suffered at the hands of his former master, but he also has to make peace with the mistakes he has made since becoming a member of the Wayne County Pack.  Adan is not thrilled about returning to his old pack but continuing as a lone wolf is no longer an option.  He knew returning to the Wayne County Pack would mean a lot of changes but he did not expect finding a mate to be one of them.

Might’s Karma is the latest book in the Wayne County Wolves series.  Fans of this series may remember the introduction of several half breed shifters a few books back.  This newest story tells the tale of one of those shifters.  Might is an eagle shifter half breed who uses sex to cope with the abuse issues he faces.  As you would expect, this leaves him with a bad reputation that he finds hard to overcome.  The story’s other main character is Adan.  Adan is a former pack member who left the pack when he was a young boy to keep his family from the backlash his actions would bring.   The fact that both men are, for one reason or the other, outcasts draws them to each other. 

Ms. Hecht likes to have her characters feel an instant attraction to the other and that does not change in Might’s Karma.  However, regardless of that instant attraction, the couples usually have to overcome obstacles in order to find their happily ever after’s.  I liked that Adan was willing to take the time to know Might, which in turn allowed the younger man to realize that not all situations had to lead straight to sex.  

Might’s Karma is a great mix of romance, angst and laughter.  Even though the first scene with the scorpions was intense, and I felt bad for Adan, I could not help laughing. There is a mixture of old and new characters stepping up to help the two men out.  The new characters also brings many possibilities for new pairings and I am curious who the author will put together next.
