War between Weres and Humans have left mistrust and prejudice in its wake. Forbidden companionship a queen takes a sanction lover--a wereslave.Seeking refuge in which to live, a pack is captured.The dynamic between Queen Nayla and Alpha Mace is never what the rules intended. The mistress is bound to her slave in private and preconceptions are shattered. The execution is good, but the characterizations are a bit simplistic and not well explained. Personally, I would have preferred more depth and exploration of the social attitudes that the story revolves around and how they change rather than just stating that they do--with minimal resistance. It is a fun, uncomplicated story.
