Darkness Shifting by Iris Astres

To find her way back to the light, she ll have to follow the howl...

When her disturbed, drug-addicted husband drops her off a balcony, nearly killing her, Libby has had enough. It s time to reclaim her life, starting by running away to a cabin at the foot of the Cascade Mountains.

There she finds welcome solitude—until a dead car battery leaves her stranded and alone on a frigid night. Her rescuer is a man with a name as unusual as his looks, and a white wolf at his side.

Equally isolated, but for very different reasons, Bodhi is drawn to Libby's fragile, wounded spirit. Their erotic connection is strong from the start, but helping her risks exposing the secrets of his wolf companion, Stavros, to an unforgiving world.

Libby's refuge doesn t last long. When danger comes hard and fast in the form of a husband determined to drag her back into his nightmare, the three of them must trust each other—with all their secrets—to escape the past's long, deadly reach.

Warning: This book includes a violent ex-husband, a white wolf, two sexy heroes, a marathon threesome, and a heroine discovering her voyeuristic side.

I am a big fan of ménage and shifter stories, but this one didn't quite work for me. There is a decent story in this book, but I didn't really click with any of the characters, except maybe (Stav)Ros. I liked some of the ideas – such as the backstory about the men and Nastasia – but somehow it just missed an edge.

I was really looking forward to reading this book, I love paranormal, m/m and ménage books. However sadly this book really didn't hit the mark. I felt that there was so much going on but at the same time nothing was really happening. I felt short changed on the m/m and ménage aspects of the book. The story itself had so much potential and could have been a really great book, if only longer maybe, as I just felt that everything was rushed.

Just not for me :(

A native Californian, Iris managed to misspend most of her youth in Paris, France, where she learned to parlez-vous with the best of them. Now she leads a bilingual, bi-coastal and frequently bi-continental life saying yes to desire whenever she can.

You might enjoy Iris’ historical romances which she writes under the pen name Ellen Trubody.
