Two nights later, screams of a woman shatter the silence of the dock and with the help of his cousin, they save her from being killed.

It’s up to him and the Crescent Ice Pack to get to the bottom of the brutal acts of one man. Will Nikki survive the wrath of her estranged husband or will the murky world of Edward Calhoun destroy her and any who try to help?
Review by Candy:
A must Read! Desiree you are a very talented writer in the shifter aspect and you bring the heat of passion as well. I enjoyed Bret and Nikki and the trials they go through to be together when only just meeting.
Nikki has suffered enough and has decided to run from her abusive husband but she doesn’t get far. Bret the owner of the bar Nikki runs into and uses the phone, saves her and now she is his to protect no matter what. Nikki didn’t know that calling her friend Sam would bring her to Bret for his help. Nikki is no stranger to the shifter community as her friend Sam is one and she grew up around them. So Bret being a bear isn’t gonna shock her but putting them in danger has her frightened that her husband may kill the ones she loves because he already killed her brother for trying to help her.
Nikki is attracted to Bret but scared that she still may get hurt but deep down knows he will protect. Bret will protect Nikki and will make her his. Will these two find a happy ending?
Desiree these series is great thus far. Shifters are my top read whenever possible. Your writing flows and keeps the reader interested and you write in my favorite style both P.O.V of the main characters. You give us every feeling that the characters go through and the passion behind it, thank you. Until book 3. 5 Stars!
Crescent Vendetta – Book 1 of the Vendetta Series
Desiree L. Scott has been writing since she was sixteen years old. There have been many influences within her life that has set her on the path that she cannot help but walk. A few of those influences consist of Karen Rose, Lisa Gardener, Nora Roberts, Cynthia Eden, Catherine Anderson, Laura Griffin, Andrea Kane, and Lisa Jackson, just to name a few. This list by no means defines my own writing but they have indeed influenced her desire to live outside of her own world and to create the thrill of her dreams.
Desiree lives on 40 + acres in the SHOW ME state with her ten-year old daughter, with the wonderful addition of four dogs. The weather is unpredictable, but the surrounding beauty of the country helps her creativity as she sits on her top deck with her laptop and coffee close by.
