Two Alpha shifters join together to lead their pack and build a family.
Commitment, loyalty, and strength aren't enough to make Wesley Stone's birth pack accept an Alpha with a physical imperfection, even if it's a meaningless mark. Putting the safety of his pack above his own wellbeing, Wesley trades himself for another Alpha and agrees to mate with a stranger in a mysterious, insular pack.
Alphas from Jobe Root's family have led the Red River pack from the first day shifters walked the earth. Now the time has come for Jobe to fulfill his destiny, but to do that, he needs his mate by his side. Spiritual, easygoing Jobe reveres Mother Nature and trusts in fate, yet he can't help being nervous about how his mate will react to his new life in Red River, his new life with Jobe.
Two Alphas with contrasting personalities, different upbringings, and divergent beliefs come together for the good of their packs. But to stay together, Wesley and Jobe must see beyond the surface and embrace every facet of themselves and their union.
Red River was a beautiful and soulful tale of two alphas, thrown together under unforeseen circumstances who find common ground as a pack pair.
Wesley always wanted to lead his own pack and thought that he’d take over from his uncle when the elder retired~ but this did not happen. Instead, he was given to another pack for a mating he never desired.
Jobe, alpha of Red River has waited a long time for Wesley to be by his side and was thrilled the day Wesley walked back into his life to be his mate, lover and partnered alpha.
Cardeno C. delivered angst and heart ache as the two men waded through uncertainties, insecurities and trials & tribulations. Wesley and Jobe were loving men with sentiment in abundance and an internal desire to create an amorous union and achieve their HEA.
Luckily for the reader, the author allowed the characters to steer her writing in the direction of acceptance and love.
The added twists Cardeno C. added were surprising and fortuitous, with proper explanations but leaving room for more books to come.
Nick Russo’s narration did the book justice as his voice portrayed the characters as I imagined them in my head. The inflection, sincerity and romance in Mr. Russo’s voice delivered a sweet tale through the words of Cardeno C.
Red River conveyed everything a reader could desire in a shifter romance with an added kick.
