Blackwood Pack - Book 7
The Blackwood Pack saga continues…
This is part of an on-going series by Amazon Bestselling Author, Mary Rundle, and catching up on previous titles is advised. Readers of the past books will enjoy meeting old friends once more as the pack does what it does best ̶ caring for one another and helping shifters everywhere.
Brian, a.k.a. “The Loch Ness Monster” has searched for his Fated Mate in vain for more than 600 years until he scents Reif in the frigid waters of the lake. But his mate seems to be purposely eluding him, so Brian turns to the Shaman of the Blackwood Pack to help find him.
Reif, one of a line of ancient shifters thought to be extinct is drawn to Brian but must focus on completing a mission to free his enslaved people from the clutches of an evil group. Despite his powerful attraction to Brian, he hides from him, believing it’s the only choice he has.
That changes when Reif surreptitiously kisses Brian while he’s sleeping, setting off a chain of events that puts both of them in mortal danger, and the powerful Blackwood pack resolves to help them stave off the wrath of vampires and witches.
Along the way, both Brian and Reif learn some hard lessons about the mutual trust necessary to achieve the happiness and fulfillment both have sought for hundreds of years.
A heartbreaking confession, an action-packed rescue, a riveting courtroom battle and many unexpected twists and turns make this passionate love story by Mary Rundle impossible to put down once you’ve read the first page.

After brunch was over, Logan asked, “Brian, what can we do for you?”
“Macushla! Not here. C’mon everyone, let’s talk in the living room,” Kieran said, as he got up. “There’s a lot to discuss.”
Brian chuckled to himself as everyone quickly rose and followed the Shaman; no matter how big these wolves were, it was apparent they weren’t going to disagree with him. Taking a seat near Logan, Brian waited until he received a nod before beginning. “I have an intruder in my loch and I need help findin’ it. I have been lookin’ for him since I scented him the day I took the laddies out on my boat, but canna find him.”
“You use ‘it’ and ‘him’. Why?” asked Logan.
“Because I dinna know what the intruder is,” Brian answered. “Only that it can shift so it can dive deep to the bottom of the loch and then shift back when it’s on land.”
“Do you know what form it has in the water?” asked Slate.READ MORE
“Naw, I’ve never seen it…only scented it in the water,” Brian replied.
“What about when it’s on land?” asked Zane.
“Naw…I can only find the place where it leaves the water because its scent ends there,” Brian said.
“Does it have the same scent on land as in the water?” asked Colton.
“I dinna know. There’s nae a scent on land…at least none that I found,” Brian said.
“Huh! Have you seen it when it’s on land?” asked Kieran.
“Naw, Shaman, I’ve never seen it on land. I can feel its presence but nae anythin’ else,” Brian replied. “I think he becomes invisible on land.”
“That wouldn’t hide his scent,” Colton said.
“Maybe it has an anti-scent spell like we do,” suggested Zane.
“What spell are you talking about, lover? You smell pretty good to me,” David said with a smile.
“Are you sure? I mean Mystia put one on each of us so our uncle and his goons wouldn’t be able to find us,” said Zane.
“David can smell you,” Kieran said, “because the gods made sure he couldn’t be affected by anything, including witches’ spells, which is why Mystia’s anti-scent spell doesn’t work on him. Your scent is still hidden from everyone else, unless you had her remove it.”
“Good to know that, babe,” Zane grinned at his mate. “One less thing to worry about.”
“So why doesn’t the intruder have a scent? Could it have a spell preventing Brian from picking it up?” asked Dakota.
Pausing a moment to listen to his spirit, Kieran answered, “No, there isn’t a spell but my spirit doesn’t know what’s concealing it.”
“What about footprints? Did you find any at the location where it left the loch?” asked Slate.
Shaking his head in frustration, Brian said, “Naw, nae a one. I dinna know how that can happen.”
Laying a hand on Brian, Kieran sent him some love as he asked, “Why don’t you tell us everything starting with the day you took me and my friends out on the loch?”COLLAPSE
