Morgan Cantrell is a Watchmen
and like the others, she has her own unusual gifts.
However, unlike most other shifters, Morgan cannot shift
into any particular animal. This is seen as a weakness in
their world, a weakness that Morgan has made into one of her
strengths. Right now her gift is going to be needed to help
out another Watchmen on a search, but first she has to get
one other person on board and it wonít be easy.
Kierland Scott was Morganís trainer
when she first came into the Watchmen. Kierland is a Lycan
shifter who never expected to have feelings for any of his
trainees. That was until Morgan came under his control.
The training was going well and the attraction was being
fought against until orders came, which had Kierland and
Morgan making choices that ended up separating them for
Morgan has to convince Kierland to work
with her as they search for and help his brother. After
many years of near hostility between them, itís going to be
hard for both Kierland and Morgan to keep focused on the
mission instead of each other. As the trip goes on, both
learn that hate is just a thin line from passion.
Understanding some of the things that went wrong before
brings their attraction to a head. Just when Morgan and
Kierland might have been able to reach through their past,
another person is added to their mission Ė one that has a
past with them both. The danger and passion ramp up as the
group gets closer to their destination. With secrets still
being held, can Morgan and Kierland find the final path that
will allow them to be together before itís too late?
Unfulfilled passion can be a dangerous
thing. Touch of Surrender brings two of the
Watchmen together with a love that overcame death and
misunderstandings. Morgan just wanted to be the best she
could be and have a place to belong. Kierland knew that a
teacher should never lust after a student, even one who
quickly earned his respect. Almost immediately I felt for
Morgan, as she was too much of everything and therefore a
standout in the shifter community. The first time she and
Keirland came together it was more than obvious they were
just circling their passion. As I read on my respect for
both Morgan and Kierland grew Ė especially as I began to
understand the truth of what happened to tear them apart.
As a couple, I couldnít help but love them. They were
compassionate, could kick ass as a fighting pair when needed
and found a way to forgive each other to ensure their
future. Touch of Surrender has equal amounts
of passion and danger that will draw you in from the very
first paragraph. The struggles and love that I found
between Morgan and Kierland make their story a keeper, a
book you will want to re-read and of course, Joyfully
Recommended from me to you.
The Primal Instincts series does
not have to be read in order, but I would suggest doing so
as you do get bits of the previous books in each one.
