 My Review

This story pulled me in from the moment I started reading. Devon is a wonderfully deep character that shows us who he is through his thoughts. When he asked if the tree he hit was okay, I knew that I would love this story. There is a mystery about a wolf, strange things happening in the town, especially with people who moved to Rowan Harbor, and you wonder if Devon is going to stay in town this time. I have to admit that the romance is slow, but it’s totally worth the wait. Especially after meeting Wade Hunter in the hospital at the beginning of the book.

I don’t want to give the story away because it’s such a delight to read. I was immersed in the story and couldn’t put it down. Highly recommended!! I can’t wait for more from Sam Burns!


Author Bio


Sam wrote her first fantasy epic with her best friend when she was ten. Like almost any epic fiction written by a ten year old, it was awful. She likes to think she’s improved since then, if only because she has better handwriting now.

If she’s not writing, she’s almost certainly either reading or lost down a wikipedia rabbit hole while pretending to research for a novel.
