Tessa Cardwell’s life changed overnight when she was left to raise her five siblings. When a friend suggested moving to the small town of New Hope, she packed up her family and set out with not a clue of what waited for them there. Used to doing everything on her own, she finds herself in the middle of a life changing experience—that is if she can let go of her inhibition and hold onto the two men fate placed in front of her.
Leontis Harper searched for the woman who turned his life upside down a few months earlier. Determined to find her lands him in New Hope Valley and places him in a situation he has come quite used to—rejection. He had dealt with it his whole life, but he finds rejection hurts more when it comes from the two who were supposed to accept him without question.
Sage Ashcroft is the last White Tiger Alpha. What the Alpha wants he gets, well until now. He finds himself in a situation which could enhance his life or destroy it, if he doesn't learn to compromise. The wrong choice, and he could be the one on the outside looking in on a life that was destined for him.
With the prophesy hanging over their heads, secrets being revealed, and enemies banding together, the New Hope Valley Pride faces many changes. Join in as the Pride gains strength it never knew was possible until the Alpha, the onyx, and the fire combine.

I enjoyed the second installment in the New Hope Valley series The Alpha’s Onyx & Fire by Jess Buffett.  I adored Leontis.  He was such a contradiction.  He appearance lead one to believe he was strictly Alpha but it hid a gooey, submissive center.  That wasn’t to say that he couldn’t be alpha if the occasion warranted but I loved his contrariness.  I also loved that for all that he was different, he struggled to feel worthy.  He was quick to come to a decision and it was warped by his perceived shortcomings.  I loved that Tessa and later Sage refused to allow Leontis to feel shame about who he was and the needs he had. 
Speaking of Tessa, I really enjoyed this strong female character by Ms. Buffett.  Tessa put aside her own needs and desires for her family.  She stepped into a world she knew little about but did so for the betterment and protection of her remaining family.  I admired her gumption and thought Ms. Buffett gave us the perfect female to handle both Sage and Leontis.  I also enjoyed the twist Ms. Buffett gave Tessa and her men.  It fit and added additional tension to the prophecy and the lives of this blended family.
I am really enjoying meeting the residents of New Hope Valley.  Ms. Buffett continues to weave tales that are fresh and enjoyable.  I love the characters and am looking forward to seeing what will happen next in this series.
