As passions collide, Sean finds himself acting as a bridge between his strong-willed alpha and a skittish Kayley. Can they break through her defenses and convince her to join them?
Just as it seems the three may have a future together, a ghost from Sean’s past strikes at the heart of their happiness. They must fight for everything they hold dear to win their chance at love.

Claimed by Love by Skye Jones was a beautifully written story of shifters, love and acceptance. Not the usual fanfare, Claimed by Love took me by surprise. First of all, the M/M/F mating was beautifully written. Ms. Jones delivered three strong characters who meshed together as a trio, while still maintaining their individualities.
Luke and Sean, a mated pair, always knew someday a third would be added to their duo. Enter Kayley, skittish, gun-shy and in need of a delicate hand. While visiting her newly turned cousin, Kayley met the two wolf shifters and immediately knew they were the men of her dreams and the ones who invaded her dreams.
Each character in the book contained a different dimension. Luke, the strong alpha and leader of the small pack displayed stoicism and strength. Sean, while not the alpha of the pack, too had a strong resilience, especially in light of his traumatic past. Kayley, hurt and scarred, desperate for love, completed the trio with her soft yet solid personality.
I found Ms. Jones’ writing refreshing. Her dialogue was meaningful and the sexual chemistry was off the chart. Each person in the relationship gave and took in ways that enhanced their love for each other. The interjection of emotion left me fulfilled and touched by the clarity in which Ms. Jones portrayed Luke, Sean and Kayley. I became absorbed in her nuances and enamored with the characters. I look forward to reading more in the series.
