Lily Blackwood is torn between two strong men...

One, Wallace is her perfect idea of a partner, loving, loyal and handsome. The second, Bryn, is her true mate, the man chosen for her by nature and her family. Denial and naivety for nature’s choice, sends her into a rage of independence against the laws of her own destiny, family and her own father.

Wallace Kirk is assigned to protect the beautiful Lily since her birth...

His loyalties are tearing him apart. His own mate, dead, taken from him, fills his thoughts as Lily begs for his attention. She needs him, but not as much as the wolf that prowls in her flesh.

Bryn Kemp's nature and need fill his flesh...Yet his true mate, the woman chosen for him, denies her destiny. His battle for her and his own pride must overcome her feisty rebellious streak. Both men must fight for her in the throes of oncoming battle and she must make the right choice. A decision that will shape the war.

*Author note: this book was previously published under the title Blackwood: Lily by R.L. Kirk*

Hot, Hot, HOT!!!! This book is like a dream come true for me ... really. I am a HUGE fan of urban fantasy/paranormal. Talk about some hot Alpha wolves, both male and female. If you were a fan of that hot wolf in that blockbuster movie (not naming names), then you will LOVE this. Awesome story line. Amazing character details. Incredibly hot sex scenes. What more could you ask for?

Crazy, rambunctious Lily Blackwood has found herself lost between the man that she aches for. The man that her loins yearn for, and the man that she is supposed to mate with, the one chosen for her. These men would be Wallace and Bryn. Not only are they both Alpha males, they both want Lily.Wallace has looked after Lily she she was born and has always been there as a friend as well as a hot hook-up. He knows how to read her, he just, well ... gets her. Then you have Bryn who is a young wolf, a pup in Wallace's eyes. Bryn see's and knows Lily as his mate and he is not going to back down. He needs Wallace to understand that this is how life is now. No longer can Wallace "play" with her when the urge hits. Therefore, the two can not seem to come to terms as far as Lily is concerned.

Before he could move, Wallace was in his face. “So, you decided to bring her home at long last Mr. Kemp, proud of yourself?”

“Wallace Kirk I presume, I expected you to be—”


“Better looking.” Bryn felt the heat against his face but didn’t relent, he stood his ground.

Wallace was everything he expected and more. He could feel the raw power coming from him. It was so strong he felt he might waver. Bryn was six foot two, yet Wallace towered over him. There was a great deal of confidence too, hitting him in the face like a wave. However, Bryn never stood down, in his short wolf life he knew that to stand firm and strong was as good as any swing of a wayward fist. Wallace wasn’t going to intimidate him, he was determined to give as good as he got.

“Smart ass too, I like smart, but ass...no. I guess I’m going to have to drill some manners into you, boy.”

That particular word pissed Bryn off a little, yet this wolf facing him overwhelmed him. He knew if he used more than harsh words, he’d have harsh wounds to match. “I’m not a boy.”

“Compared to me, you’re a kid in nappies. Hell, you haven’t even reached the twinkle in your Daddy’s eyes yet. You’re thirty. That makes you my pup.”

Bryn’s lip curled at the edge. “There a point to this? I got her home safe.”

Wallace moved forward. “Good job you did. You decide to come back after spending a pitiful five years with her and expect to replace me, just like that.”

Bryn had no choice but to shift back to avoid being touched. “I was just—”

“Following orders pup, yeah sure. Lily is a young woman, she’s impressionable, thinks she’s ready for anything. Then you come along and her fucking hormones and her wolf are in turmoil. I sensed it earlier, she was out of control. You come here when she’s in heat, bringing her mate to the door in that big bold exterior, sending her emotions all over the place.”

“She is my mate, my chosen mate, Wallace. You have to live with it okay? You have to go, you have to move on and let Lily and I become one. Your time is done here. I’m sorry about what happened to you five years ago, I’m sorry your bitch was taken from you, but that’s not my fault or yours.”


Too late, Bryn felt himself hoisted up against the stone, lifted a foot off the floor.

“You don’t get it do yer? That isn’t a question smart ass, it’s a fact. I have protected her since the day she came out of her mother’s womb. I was always there, her big bad wolf, ready to die for her.”

Crime has seemed to have peaked. Twelve murders in twelve months. One unfortunate death being Wallace's mate five years earlier. There is nothing more desired than to find the person or person's whom intend to take down the female Blackwood wolves. Wallace and Bryn come to agree on one thing only ... to protect Lily, or die trying. Their love is strong. Their pack is stronger. 

Who will Lily choose? Wallace, who has loved and protected her all of her life, or Bryn whom was chosen by nature to be her mate? Do me a favor and go 1-click this book today. Bonnie Bliss has done one heck of a job bringing these characters to life. Not only is the story intriguing, the sex scenes are incredible. Thanks for stopping by and happy reading!

Bonnie Bliss is the brain child of two authors. Bonnie is a husband and wife duo who have come together to weave stories of passion, action, betrayal, and ultimate surrender. They have discovered that mixing genres is their thing. Their tastes go dark, and they love to twist up sweet stories and make them a bit more tense and sexy. Bonnie writes in multiple genres with plans to dabble into more areas of fiction.

One is a Southern California native, the other was born and raised in Yorkshire, England. The husband spends his time giving the wife alpha males with bite. He is a man that needs to see his world in print. He has a panty melting accent, loves listening to music, watching Game of Thrones, and obsessing over Heisenberg. The wife spends her time writing strong women that evolve into their power, they don’t just come out guns blazing. She claims the song California Girls, by Katy Perry is totally accurate. She’s done everything from waitressing, customer service phone rep., Corporate Real Estate, and spent a pretty impressive part of her life working for the Disney Corporation—before finding her way into the publishing world with her husband.
