For once, mated werewolves Charles and Anna are not traveling because of Charles’s role as his father’s enforcer. This time, their trip to Arizona is purely personal--or at least it starts out that way...
Charles and Anna soon discover that a dangerous Fae being is on the loose, replacing human children with simulacrums. The Fae’s cold war with humanity is about to heat up—and Charles and Anna are in the cross fire.

Anna and Charles have some tension between them. They have both been thinking about having kids. Those thoughts aren’t going over so well with Charles and he’s thinking maybe he’ll take Anna on a trip to look at horses. It’s an old friend of Charles’s and Anna jumps at the chance to get away.

The pair are not in Arizona long before trouble strikes and it stinks of Fae. Anna and Charles go to work to figure out just who is kidnapping these children and replacing them with simulacrums.

This story was so crazy! The whole idea of the children being simulacrums was so creepy! I was transfixed and couldn’t get enough. The Fae are such nasty, unpredictable creatures.

Charles and Anna work so well together. I also think being around all the children helped the couple put their views on bringing children into the world in perspective. It was hard seeing Charles with his old friend, and his friend’s son not quite agreeing with Charles on a major issue.

I really loved Dead Heat and can’t wait to get more of Charles and Anna. They are just so great together both professionally and in their relationship. I’m excited to see where their journey will take them next!
