Lisa was wicked.

Wicked and damaged. She’s spent half her twenty years locked away in a psychiatric facility because her uncontrollable alpha rages are inexplicable in a human world. Orphaned when she was a baby, she doesn't even know what she is. All she knows is what they've always told her - wicked.

At twenty-six years old, Mac helps his family run Raleigh Point, a group foster home for abused or abandoned shifter babies and children. Beyond taking on an occasional tracking job for the FBI, he’s never worried about much. He likes to play hard, usually with an attractive woman. Never too much responsibility. Life is good.

Taking the phone call alert, Mac breezes in to rescue Lisa. In that grimy god-forsaken excuse for a hospital, Mac realizes life has to change. He discovers Lisa is not only drugged and damaged, she’s his mate.
Just as Mac is finally getting her to trust him, a crazed rogue alpha decides to make Lisa his queen, and Mac no longer has to battle to win her love, he has to battle to save her life.




Review
A shifter hospitalized in an insane asylum. What will they think of next? That is where Victoria Sue begins Raleigh Point Rescue. Lisa is misunderstood and forced to deal with unexplainable anger issues by being drugged to the gills and locked away in deplorable conditions. She has passed through the cracks the Raleigh Point Rescue has been trying to fill. But that is about to change and it all begins with Mac. I really enjoyed Mac. He wasn’t quite sure of his purpose even though everyone else knew what his passion was. Finding his mate in deplorable conditions didn’t help matters, especially as she is completely unaware of who and what she is. I loved the patience he showed as he allowed Lisa the time and space to come to terms with not only her freedom but also the fact shifters exist. Ms. Sue showed us Lisa’s strength as she fought to move past the abuse she has suffered. She did not gloss over the battle Lisa fought for her sanity. It felt real even as it happened quickly. I appreciated and believed in the process which isn’t always easy to accomplish. I also enjoyed the unexpected twists that Ms. Sue gave us in this story. It wasn’t as straight forward as one would assume and added additional layers to Mac and Lisa’s happly ever after. This was my first time reading Ms. Sue’s work but I can say with confidence it definitely will not be the last.
