    There is a possibility of books in this world, but WAR OF HEARTS is a standalone paranormal romance UPDATE The 1st two chapters are on my website current WIP under my pen name S Young I m so excited Another Teaser She looked him directly in the eyes I don t have any plans to kill you tonight, Wolf Boy, so catch some z s too Despite the flare of irritation he felt at the ridiculous nickname, Conall also felt than a flicker of amusement But you plan to kill me eventually She was silent a moment and then she answered, and his instincts told him she was being honest I don t know What I do know is that there s someone else after me and you ve saved my ass twice I can t get rid of you so I may as well make use of you Her words caused a stirring somewhere they shouldn t Poor word choice on her part Make use of me his voice was gruff.She flicked him a casual look as she kicked off her shoes and got into the bed, fully clothed Bodyguard She reached up and switched off the lamp at her bedside.Surprised, Conall snorted And here I thought you didnae need a bodyguard Me too Until a vamp punched a hole in my chest Although she tried to hide behind levity, he heard the slight tremble of uncertainty in her words Is that the closest you ve come to death, lass No, she whispered, the duvet rustling as she turned her back to him Death and I are old friends Here s an excerpt it s unedited Marching away from the reception and prying eyes, Conall bounded up the stairs to the next floor, feeling Thea s presence grow stronger Anticipation flooded him, making his heart pound, and his hands flex Glancing down through the drop between the railings, Conall realized he could take this back staircase to the exit without having to go through reception.Perfect.Thankfully, the hallway on the next floor was empty as Conall tried to move his hulking figure as quietly down it as possible He stopped outside the door of the room at the farthest end of the hallway and rested his palm against it.Thea was behind the door.Brat.Grabbing the door handle he gave it a jarring tug, hearing the lock break with satisfaction Conall strode inside, coming to an abrupt halt at the sight of Thea in fighting stance, facing him.She had her fists held up to her face like a practiced boxer, her knees bent.Exasperated at the thought of delaying their journey with a fight, Conall swung the door shut behind him and crossed his arms over his chest.Her olive skin was a little pale, her features strained from the obvious painful toll the mysterious drug had taken on her body Dark circles were still visible beneath her wide tip tilted eyes She was still weak.Good I have no wish to fight you Thea grunted You re trying to kidnap me, and you don t expect me to fight you Are you capable of fighting in this state She narrowed her eyes I could kick your ass any day of the week, Wolf Boy A growl erupted from him before he could stop it Call me that again and see where it gets you I m not afraid of you Conall tested the air and realized he couldn t smell any hint of fear from her Huh Maybe that should give him pause It didn t Listen and listen carefully He took a step toward her and her lush lips pressed tightly together I m no ordinary werewolf You can run from me, Thea, but I ll always be able to find you So let s give into the inevitable and not make a big deal out of this Thea let out an incredulous laugh and Conall tensed at the musical sound You re delusional, Wolf Boy, if you think I m going anywhere without a fight If she called him that one time, Conall was afraid he d change right in front of her He tried not to curl his hands into fists, giving away his mounting anger I m not kidding How do you think I found you when others have failed How do you think I found you here I hear you have talents, abilities well you re not the only one I have your scent, Thea Quinn You ll never be able to run from me again She studied him a moment, perhaps trying to deduce if he was lying or not She wrinkled her nose Well, that s not creepy Ignoring her sarcasm, he gestured to the door Let s go Conall waited, studying her impatiently as she considered him in return As her soulful eyes wandered over his body, an electric awareness shivered through him, reminding him of the call of the full moon.Ashforth was right She was a dangerous creature in ways than one.She relaxed her fighting stance, exhaling wearily Fine Relieved but still alert Conall nodded He d barely turned a millimetre toward the door when he felt the blast of a forceful wind against his back A dark blur shot past him but his reflexes were fast and he reached out for what he hoped was the scruff of her neck.Making purchase he shoved her against the door and slammed his body into hers.She gasped, her cheek pressed hard to the door along with the front of her body With a grunt she pushed against him but Conall leaned his entire weight into her How she panted, looking up at him in shock.Conall tightened his grip on her neck and bent his head to her ear You may be fast, lass, but I m faster Her upper lip curled I m not at full strength Aye, well, I suppose we ll see how we get on when you are He took hold of her wrists and brought them down behind her back.Thea squirmed, and he tightened his hold, knowing it must be painful, but she never showed it Let s go You really think I ll believe you re the world s best bloodhound without testing that theory he heard the warning in her voice.In the name of expedience, he transferred his hold on her to one hand and quickly pulled the syringe out of his back pocket Just like that the coppery, blood like tang of her terror filled his nostrils and Conall forced down a prickle of guilt He couldn t imagine she felt guilty about all the people she d murdered He didn t want to use the drug now he knew it messed with his ability to track her, but she didn t know that Easy way or hard way I I can pay you than Ashforth By stealing from people No thanks Conall kept the syringe in one hand, while he yanked open the door and quickly grabbed her arm His huge hand wrapped easily around her small bicep For a fairly tall woman with generous assets, she felt fragile and small beneath his touch Most human females did.But she wasn t human, he reminded himself, as he yanked her out into the hallway I would think someone who is mercenary enough to hunt a woman he knows nothing about for money wouldn t care where the money comes from Conall stopped and hauled her close, bending to enunciate the words in her face so she could make no mistake about his determination to finish this job Ashforth isn t paying me Someone important to me is dying and I hear you re the cure I bring you to Ashforth to answer for murdering his wife and he ll give me some of your blood If she felt anything about this information, she did a wonderful job of not showing it Instead, she tilted her chin in defiance I ll give you some of my blood, if you ll just let me go No can do He shook his head and continued to pull her down the hall with him I struck a bargain with this man and my word is my honor You ve got to be kidding me, right she sneered, trying to yank free of his hold and failing Conall gritted his teeth and held on tighter If she kept fighting him, he d inadvertently hurt her Stupid lass Keep moving She stopped as they entered the stairwell Seriously My life is important than your goddamn honor There s a trail of bodies from the east coast of the US through mainland Europe that makes the latter questionable You have no idea what you re talking about Exasperated, wishing he could drug her without causing her pain or him to lose his connection to her, Conall let the growl show in his voice Let s cease talking entirely To his surprise and relief, she did.

    What can I say about this author s work that I have not mentioned in the past I knowI am a complete and utter fan of Miss Young s books, and each time I have finished reading one, I am left with my belly aflutter and a sappy, satisfied smile beaming on my lips.This time is no different I have been well and truly wrecked by her words I really should not be surprised at this point, eh and even now that a couple of days have passed since I reached The End of this beautiful book, I am still thinking about it I am absolutely not ready to say goodbye to The McLennan Pack From the moment I began reading, I fell into the lives of Thea and Conall The hours I spent following their journey were ones I should have spent writing, but I simply could not let them go I lived their story I cried, and I laughed I grinned, and sighed I became enthralled, not only by the sheer romance of them, but also the imagery Miss Young paints with her words wow Simply perfection And even while at work, I kept thinking about where I had to leave them the previous night, wondering what would happen when I got home and was free to start another chapter By the way, although I adore my family to bits, I let out a whispered whoop each night when they were fast asleep, because that meant I could get back to my book I am a bookworm, plain and simple I know that if you feel the way I do, you completely understand Young shows a new side to her story telling skills with her first paranormal romance A side that, despite its newness, she seems to fall into oh so effortlessly You can still hear her voice on every single page it is still her giving you the time of your life with her words The character driven plot was filled with twists and turns I did not anticipate, and it only took me a few chapters to fall in love with Thea and Conall I wanted them to succeed in their endavours so badly, yet there were moments I also found myself clutching my chest, worrying if they would prevail And did they Hmm Well, obviously I will not give you any spoilers, but know this you are in for one heck of sweet, fast paced, funny yes even the wolf is not a grouch all the time highly suspenseful and utterly enchanting romance Conall truly is a wolf a multi faceted creature who feels deeply And Thea is one remarkable creatureI adored her Her resilience her strength and heart spoke to me, and I loved her sass, in particular I also loved how she could bring the quiet wolf to his knees fans self If you are a fan of this author but unsure whether to give PNR a chance, I have two words for you DO IT Do not hold yourself back Try something new Let this fantastic author pull you into a story that will not only leave you a little breathless but also a little lost after you have finished it Lost, you ask Why Because I have no idea how I am going to pull myself out of this book hangover now that I have fallen into its clutches once I want, no, crave MORE.My favourite author best be working on the next book already That is all I am saying For now.

    I ve never read Samantha Young s previous paranormal novels, but I know she loves this genre We can find her style in her way to describe her characters and her country I really enjoy the story, the mythology and the evolution between the two heroes Thea is a very strong and lovable heroin, her journey is a hard one Conall is an alpha but he s able to respect Thea s decisions, which I appreciate There s a lot of action, of violence, we are never bored.

    Holy cow this story is amazing I loved everything about it The characters, the setting, the plot, the conflicteverything S Young did such a fantastic job on this paranormal romance I am dying for the next book War of Hearts gave me all of the feels I went from being angry to laughing, fanning myself from the chemistry of Thea and Conall to crying The ability of a writer to craft a story such as WOH by S Young and to get totally lost in that world as a reader is exactly why I love reading This is definitely one of my favorite reads this year Hands down this book is 10 stars This ARC was provided by the Author for a honest review.
