Heather is the human mate of Cael and Riyu.  While out with her father-In-law, they are attacked by hunters and with his dying breath, Cael and Riyu’s father mistakenly blames Heather for his wounds.  When Heather stumbles into the pack, instead of being comforted, she is cast aside by her mates who believe she is the reason for the death of their father.  Heather is unable to fathom why her father-in-law would lie but is even more confused as to why her mates would believe she would do something so vile.  So, Heather does what her mates ask of her even though her heart is breaking and her body is weak.  She leaves.

I bet I used a box of tissues with this baby.  Talk about emotional.  I swore after the first scene that I would hate Cael and Riyu until the end of the book.  Honestly? I hated them for about five minutes.  Then I became immersed in their saga to find their mate and make amends.  I wanted them to beg for forgiveness and my hateful inner woman wanted Heather to never forgive them.  But, the power of love won out and it made for a tremendous Christmas story of love and forgiveness. 

There are many reasons why I love to read Maya Banks.  A book like Love Me Still is just one of them.
