A chieftain’s forsaken daughter….
Trina Huxford knows the old stories: wolf takes swan, wolf kills swan. When her beloved older sister is taken by a wolf, she fears the pattern will play out again, but her father’s inaction stuns her. After all, the tribe needs Margot to seal the alliance between the Kaqtukaq and Whakamanu warriors. If he won’t save her sister, then Trina will. Her only ally? A young warrior whose quiet strength and gentle spirit both soothe and entice her.
An outcast craving acceptance….
Pou Ngata has spent years battling against his family’s tarnished lineage, so the Tane’s invitation to join him and his chosen warriors in Windsor comes as an honor and a shock. The problem? The bride intended for his cousin is missing, and the Tane has forbidden them to interfere. Refusing means losing any goodwill he’s gained, but Pou can’t stand by. Especially when Trina might be her sister’s replacement.
Two hearts bound by lies….
As Trina and Pou piece together the truth behind Margot’s disappearance, they can only trust each other. Lies and betrayal culminate in a battle that threatens their fledgling relationship. But there are greater dangers than the Windsor wolves, and Pou and Trina will need more than love to survive.
How can the truth set them free if it destroys everything they know?
TRINA’S SACRIFICE is the final installment of the Solstice Quartet, but in order to find the answers Ember, Amy and Dia seek, they must go back to the past and find the mystery surrounding their parents’ romance. The story their father shares could shatter the beautiful memories they have of their dead mother and change the way they look at their father. TRINA’S SACRIFICE and the Solstice Quartet is the perfect read for fans of Carrie Ann Ryan’s Wolf shifter series or Elizabeth Briggs’ Zodiac Wolf series. While each story can be read on its own, you will want to grab them all and dive into the unique Maori culture and the mystery that sent the three daughters running for their lives.
Taking a deep breath, Pou covered her slender hand with his and savored the silkiness of her cool skin. She stared at him from beneath dark, wet lashes but didn’t pull away. Perhaps she needed the comfort more than she let on. "I'm sorry. I have four sisters. If anything happened to one of them, I would burn down the world to get her back."
She turned her attention from him back to the pond. Her hand stayed in his, and she rested her chin on the other. His pulse thundered in his ears. Did she hear his heart? What just touching her hand did to him?
“Can I ask you something?” she asked after a while.
“Anything,” he replied on a breath.
Facing him, she met his gaze. So far, none of the Kaqtukaq had made eye contact with him. Of course, she’d be the one. “At the river during the Solstice, why were you staring at me?”
The memory flashed across his vision again. Her stunning plumage like raw stone, the way she shimmered like molten gold beneath the glow of Matariki, as if the Seven Sisters themselves demanded he see Trina in all her glory. Then the following morning, she glowed in the hazy light like a beacon, flaxen hair damp against light brown skin, yellow eyes searching. Always searching. Something in her had called to him and continued to.
“Why wouldn’t I?” he said. “Because you’re beautiful.”
