And shock turns to terror as Samantha falls prey to the deadly enemy determined to destroy the Amoveo, and the only chance she has to come into her true powers is to trust in Malcolm to show her the way ...

About the Author

Unleashed is Sara's first published novel and the first book in The Amoveo Legend series. Sara is a graduate of Marist College, with a B.A. in English Literature & Theater. Her initial path after college was a professional actress. Some of her television credits include, A&E Biography, Guiding Light, Another World, As the World Turns, and Rescue Me.

Her career began with Monster's Making It Count programs, speaking in high schools and colleges around the United States to thousands of students.

Sara has been a lover of both paranormal and romance novels for years. Her science fiction/fantasy/romance obsession began years ago with the TV series Star Trek and an enormous crush on Captain Kirk. That sci-fi obsession soon evolved into the love of vampires, ghosts, werewolves, and of course, shapeshifters. Sara is married to her college sweetheart, Will. They live in Bronxville, New York, with their four boys, two dopey dogs, and an extremely loud bird. Life is busy, but never dull.

My Review:

When Samantha fails as an artist in New York she decides to move back home and live with her Nonie.  Her ex-boyfriend Roger accosts her and then something happens and he runs screaming.

When she arrives home she notices Malcolm her dreamy next door neighbor.  Soon he is explaining to her about her heritage that she is part Amoveo a race of shapeshifters.  She's the last of the Wolf clan and she can turn into a black wolf.  She's also his mate!  She doesn't believe him at first but as she witnesses strange happens she starts to believe.

Malcolm is the last of the Eagle clan and he has waited for Samantha to come back home.  He has always known she was his fated Mate since they have connected in their dreams.  He needs to bond with her because without his mate he is slowly losing his powers.

We also learn of the Caedo family who have hunted the Amoveo since the end of time and were the ones who killed Samantha's parents in cold blood.

I really liked how Malcolm was patient with Samantha to accept her heritage and as his mate.  Glad he didn't force the issue and he took her feelings in consideration.

Loved learning about the Amoveo legend and I can't wait till Untouched comes out next year!
