Kayley Edwards has spent the last four years closing herself off after a vicious attack by her lover left her scarred and terrified. After fleeing her native Alaska, she ran the length of the country and began a new life in Miami, far from family and friends.

When her cousin and his friends decide to vacation nearby, he invites her to join them because he has important news. Determined not to let fear rule her life, she agrees to meet with them, only to have her world turned upside down. His friends include the two gorgeous men who’ve haunted her dreams for months, kindling her desire and challenging her to take a chance on love.

Pack alpha, Luke Johnson, has dreamed of Kayley for years. He and his mate, Sean Wallace, know she is meant to be theirs. But how will she react when she finds the world they inhabit is one she never imagined existed?

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 is the first in the Wild Hunters Series by Skye Jones. I like how Ms. Jones handles Kayley and her mental illness. I really felt that was treated with respect and kindness.  Made me respect the author and love the character of Kayley all the more.
Kayley has been through hell. She was on anti depressants for four years to dull the pain of everything that has happened to her. She stopped them about a month ago. Her biggest worry now is will her past stop her from having a future?  Can she over come everything and be whole again?
Sean Wallace is mated to Luke they are both bounty hunters. Luke is very possessive. He has been dreaming of a female he knows will be his mate too.  When he meets Kayley he recognizes that she is that woman.
I like how Sean is a perfect foil for Luke. Sean is the calm one. The reasonable one. Usually most evenly tempered.  He does lose some of that with Kayley but in a good way.
Both men take the time to know Kayley and make her feel safe with them. I  think that is hardest for Luke since he is the Alpha but his efforts made me love him even more.
I liked how no one was left out in this trio. Everyone is wanted and equal in this relationship.
Over all this is the start of what promises to be a great series. I want more! Bring on the paranormals and the mates that love them.
