Caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, Tristan Howe is abducted and imprisoned by a pack at war with his own. His future looks bleak until he finds an unexpected ally in enemy pack member, Colby Williams. A fragile bond develops between them as they escape together.
Once he’s safely back with his own pack, Tristan finds his feelings for Colby are more than just gratitude for being rescued. He’s delighted to learn that they’re reciprocated, and even more excited to realize he and Colby are mates.
But idealistic Tristan finally has to face up to the fact that even true love might not be enough to defeat the forces ranged against them—not least his pack-mates’ suspicion and hostility toward Colby, and a mate so scarred by his abusive past that he doesn’t know how to be free. All Tristan can do is try.

A Siren Erotic Romance


Strength of the Pack 3: Red Moon Rising by Joy Lynn Fielding is an very intense read. Also should not be read as a stand alone. Many of the people we know and love are in this book, and the pack politics is building in this book too. So you really need to read them in order to understand everything.  We have Tristan who is captured by the enemy pack. Tristan is so very na├»ve and a mouth that will get him killed one day.  I do not think that werewolf knows how to stop talking. Even when he is getting beat up for it. But Tristan is also very endearing.  I found his sunshine attitude fun and sweet. He is a nice person with a good soul.
Colby wow, where to start. Abused beyond belief. He still has a good heart despite what he has endured. I will say Colby is not for the faint of heart. His character is abused heavily.  It helped me understand his personality and why he would go to such lengths to free Tristan.  Also helps me understand him later on in the series.  He is quiet but gentle soul. Braver than even he knows.
I loved this story I feel it is a vital part of the overall series. It has a great romance but also we are finding out other things we need to know. I love the relationships and friendships the wolf pack has. I think this series is a must read for any werewolf shifter lover Ms Fielding does a great job of combining romance with a story that keeps me wanting more.
